Weather Good - P&O Standards slip badly

Review for a Caribbean - Western Cruise on Aurora

6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

After being regaled non stop by me about the excellent food and shows you get on a P&O Cruise,I finally managed to convince my wife to take her first ever cruise......We decided on the Caribbean Christmas and New Year Cruise on Aurora - I cruised on the same ship in 2013 on her Transatlantic and Canada trip and was looking forward to being reunited with the ship. Boarding went well, and the A Deck ...

Review for a Caribbean - Western Cruise on Explorer of the Seas

Lucky Charm 858
6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

While the service crew were outstanding, and tried their hardest to make the cruise pleasant, the truth of it is that this is a Sea Bus. It is overcrowded (which makes good service very difficult), the ports of call are boring, with very little to see or do (a lot of passengers stayed on the boat and didn't even bother to get off), and far too much time is spent at sea (about half the days are ...

P & O Cruise Standards bottom of the heap

Review for a Caribbean - Western Cruise on Arcadia

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

Having cruised for over 25 years, several with P& O, we returned from this Christmas/New Year cruise exceedingly disappointed with the level that standards had dropped to. The hygiene levels were very poor indeed. We lost count of the number of times we had to ask for the tables to be wiped down in the Belvedere Restaurant (Buffet), because of food or drink spills still on the tables. Toilets were ...

Review for a Caribbean - Western Cruise on Arcadia

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

There were so many problems it is difficult to know were to start. The ship itself was clearly not ready following its recent refurbishment ! Toilets in public areas seldom worked, we had several days when they did not work in our cabin either. Many public and open areas were filthy. Noisy work was being carried out around the pool areas. Decks were blocked off while painting was being done with ...

Review for a Caribbean - Western Cruise on Queen Mary 2 (QM2)

6-10 Cruises • Age 50s

We have just returned from a combined transatlantic crossing to New York and Caribbean cruise. We have sailed on QM2 a number of times over the years and were shocked but also saddened to see the state of disrepair, neglect and overall drop in standards. We were surprised to see that Cunard who heavily market on the ship's iconic history and tradition plus the famous White Star Service, would let ...

Bitterly disappointed with Royal Caribbean

Review for a Caribbean - Western Cruise on Adventure of the Seas

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

Due to the extremely bad availability of the wifi, I had to make 6 visits to Customer Services to arrange refunds. I also had the embarrassment of a letter, delivered to my suite, stating the bank had declined a payment, when we were only on day 11 of the cruise and in the morning of that day I had my sea pass blocked! Apparently, I was informed that Royal Caribbean take out funds from your bank ...

Standards dropping and disappointed cruise.

Review for a Caribbean - Western Cruise on Aurora

2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

This cruise on Aurora was to be a special cruise for our 40th wedding and husbands 65th birthday. Ship found to be tatty and generally food and service below what to expect since our last cruise with P&O. Noise in cabin from slamming drawers and doors in adjoining cabins and unable to sit out on balcony most days due to smoking on balcony either side. Had to book tours due to ship location in ...

Fabulous Festive Debut!!!

Review for a Caribbean - Western Cruise on Queen Elizabeth

2-5 Cruises • Age 20s

We travelled on Queen Elizabeth's Festive Debut as virgin Cunarders, and we weren't disappointed. We boarded swiftly and were greeted, by smiling crew, all offering to help as we were travelling with my mother and two small children. The cabin size was fantastic, we had 3 cabins, my mother in one and the 2 cabins between my husband myself and the 2 children, unfortunately one of ...

Review for a Caribbean - Western Cruise on Aurora

james king
First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

We decided to escape the cold chill of a British winter and head on a 23 night cruise from Southampton to Southampton via the Caribbean on Aurora. Our party of 3 consisted of Myself (29 yrs old) My Mum and Grandma and we had separate accommodation. I had the fortune of having a cabin with a balcony,it's such a luxury to have your own personal space outside. Now with ships having balcony cabins ...
