First experience of P&O, so disappointed.

Ok, this was our first cruise with P&O but not our first cruise, so we have a lot of experience of what to expect and what service should be, despite Covid excuses. The ship is very nice and we liked the layout. Having been out of service for 19 months, we assumed everything would be working, so imagine our annoyance when we walked into our cabin to find a bedside light wasn’t working. It ...

As our trip to Florida got cancelled again and I didn't want to fly due to all the tests and paperwork involved we did this 7 night uk trip. My son and I had a great time from bumper car driving to iflying. Great modern ship (have done other Royal Caribbean ships but smaller ones). No sea sickness even though I'm generally a bad traveller and it was a bit rocky at times so I put that down to ...

Delightful cruise and great to go ashore independently

We chose this cruise primarily because of the free car parking and onboard spend offer, plus having the opportunity to go ashore independently in Portland, Belfast and Liverpool. The service onboard in the restaurants and bars was excellent, with a very friendly and welcoming crew. We had a lovely room stewardess who took great care of us. It is a beautiful ship and with only 1250 guests ...

Picked this cruise as it was from Southampton so no flying. Great thing about this ship is the crew,all helpful and happy, great stateroom on deck 10,food very good in the MDR, not the usual choices in the buffet,which was disappointing ( perhaps because there were only approx 1300 guests onboard ), precautions taken re covid were very good ,but there was four cases, three of these were taken ...

First 'post-covid' International cruise: from Southampton to Spain & Canaries (no Portugal) and lessons learnt.

There should never have been the amount of stress pre cruise that we (English) and especially the Americans were put through. The lack of communication from Celebrity was a common theme. We all jumped through hoops to get on this cruise. Pre- embarkation we had to arrange for PCR tests within 3 days of leaving. The choice was use Eurofins, recommended and linked to Celebrity who then forward ...

We decided to book a british isles cruise as we needed a break and have not been able to get to our usual cruise destination of the carribbean in nearly two years. We are two adults with no children and cruise Royal/NCL and Carnival mainly. Embarkation; We expected this to take a bit longer than usual due to covid requirements but it was actually very smooth and we were on the ship from ...

Our thoughts on P&O's new Iona

Review for Iona to Europe - All

Firstly, it was lovely to 'get away' and lovely to get away on what is (almost) a brand new ship. This was our first P&O cruise. We normally cruise with Royal Caribbean or NCL. I'll start with what we considered the good points: It's a great ship with plenty of shops and spaces to sit. Personally, we prefer the 'street layout' that Royal Caribbean tends to adopt but the layout is fine once ...

Not sure why a lot of people rave about P&O

This is my review of the P&O Iona Cruise sailing from Southampton on 25th September for two weeks. Firstly, this is my personal opinion, which is very similar to the other members of our party. I'm not a cruise snob, I'll never be the sort of person who "only cruises with…". I base my choices on the ship, destinations, and value for money. I'm 40, my wife is 34 and we went on this cruise ...

Two important things to consider when booking any cruise with P&O at the moment is firstly to book the car park early if you are not on select Fare as the CPS car park was not available one week before so we had to book a hotel package (or we chose too). Secondly trying to get through to P&O on the phone was virtually impossible all communication had to be done by email and took 4 days to get a ...

First cruise with P&O and definitely the last! The food is mediocre at best which is made worse by the myholiday app. You will be lucky to eat in the a la carte restaurants as I’m on day 5 of the cruise and they are fully booked for the rest of the cruise. I now have to queue up every day or use the ‘buffet’ restaurant. There seems to be no set drinks policy, what you get in one bar is ...
