Tired ship, poor maintenance, over promised and under delivered.

Review for a Caribbean - All Cruise on Ventura

We've sailed with P&O many times, first sailing with them back in 2011. This was the first time we were going to receive 'priority' boarding, however our embarkation time was delayed due to the requirement for the ship to be deep cleaned after a gastro intestinal disease outbreak. We arrived on time for our delayed embarkation and waited two hours outside before we were let into the terminal. We ...

It was when Lorena, Sous Chef in the Horizon self-service restaurant, asked me on the first morning what sort of bread I preferred for my breakfast toast that I had an inkling that Aurora was going to deliver something special. The 65-night Grand Tour to the USA and Caribbean certainly did that, starting each day with seeded bread for my toast, baked by Lorena and cheerfully delivered to my table ...

It was so bad that I wrote to the CEO complaining about numerous things. They have dumbed down so much and told the CEO I would never travel with P & O again the reply was just a list of my complaints not how they would deal with them. The food was diabolical. The rhubarb crumble was like a soup couldn’t find any rhubarb in it and I attach a photo of a cheese and onion tartlet from the lunchtime ...

Overall I was very disappointed with my experience on the Sky Princess. In comparison to my past experiences on Princess, it was very lacking. Firstly, I found the entertainment to be mediorce. For a transatlantic cruise, there were not many activities to engage in, especially at night. Also, the front desk staff lacked conflict resolution and customer service skills. The sprinkler system in my ...

If you want to want to wait an hour for a drink, two hours for dinner.. extras added to your bill you didnt have and have to keep asking for it to be removed and disinterested staff… this is the cruise for you. The ship is nothing special and the lack of forward bar leads to packed atrium bars. No prom deck means the jogging track is packed with slow walkers.. the gym was good with good ...

We traveled with my sister and brother in law and were very excited to take this trip together.. Our cabin ( mini suite) was nice but the bathroom had lots of hair around the bath and floor and my husband made ...

Review for a Caribbean - All Cruise on Arvia

Barbados Cruiser
10+ Cruises • Age 70s

Cruising back to Barbados after a long stay in the UK is a wonderful way to relax after a hectic visit. Arvia is a beautiful ship. The design and finishes are superb - modern and stylish but not too glitzy in the way that some cruise ships become an assault on the senses. The quality of the food, entertainment and service on board was really good and the value for money was incredible. The ...

My wife and I chose this cruise because we had cruised across the Atlantic before and enjoyed it but wanted more time in the Caribbean. Boarding in Southampton was quick and easy, we found the ship to be clean, obviously pretty big but not at all glitzy. Lots of places on board to eat and drink and generally OK. The Beach House and Keel and Cow were good as was the Olive Grove, the Epicurean and ...

As always I start my reviews with - this is my viewpoint on my holiday, others will no doubt have had a completely different experience and disagree with what follows. Sadly Arvia does not have the wow factor for me. In my opinion the focal point of any cruise ship is the central Atrium - Arvia's is very ordinary and plain - granted it's very spacious with a flowing staircase but simply ...

We have done 24 cruises on different lines over the years. We chose this as there were a lot of sea days and we thought there would be lots to do. Wrong. If don't you like line dancing and being given presentation on thing they are trying to sell you then you are left with little else. The ship is simply too big and the outside spaces and pools too small. There is a queueing system for ...
