Disappointing!
"I was told that I would receive my result within 30 minutes by text but when they checked my husband’s mobile number he was told that they didn’t have the same number and he would have to ask for his result at the terminal.There were very few porters around so we took our own luggage and at last we were able to approach the terminal where we waited in a queue to enter the building...."Read More

Another brilliant cruise onboard Britannia

We had a fantastic holiday on onboard Britannia for a second time. The food was 95% great. The lobster and King prawns were a real treat. The entertainment was brilliant, especially the P&O performers and the staff are a real credit to P&O. The trips were well organised and despite the very hot weather we still had a great time visiting the different countries. I particularly enjoyed the art and ...

Don't be fooled by the basic cruise price - There's much more to come once on board

We are a recently retired couple who enjoy cruising and have cruised on many of the major cruise lines. We picked this one as it was just before the Summer peak period ( We didn't know it was half term in England ) and we were looking for a bit of sun and relaxation. First the pros. The ship is still beautiful despite being 7 years old. Our stateroom was kept immaculately clean . Our attendant ...

We chose this cruise because it went from Southampton, we are not happy to fly at present. Embarkation was an absolute breeze. The ship looks fantastic a real gem. Every member of staff you meet smiles and goes out their way for you they really do emphasise customer service particularly Joseph in the atrium bar he was just omg far to good at looking after everyone. The layout of the ...

Overall - we felt that P&O delivered on their promises, and provided good value for money. There were some small issues, however the impression we came away with was a positive one. Arrival - I’m aware that COVID arrivals are changing so this won’t be relevant for long, but we arrived early and went through the testing queues quickly. It was about 45 mins from the porters taking our bags to ...

Everything average. Buffet very disappointing. Not much variety and could be hotter. More Like a works canteen. Staff always pleasant and cannot be faulted but P&O cannot hide the fact that they are trying to get back the financial loss due to COVID. Internet access £ 90 !! on some lines it is free. I don't know how they can justify that. Enjoyable cruise but P&O can't hide the fact ...

Love this ship and have cruised on her pre Covid. Have also travelled twice on Iona post Covid. There are several things all these cruises have in common, the reasons given are the Covid effect, which no longer makes any sense. The staff are still wonderful, albeit none of them looked particularly happy, possibly due to many of them having been seconded from a previously cancelled cruise on ...

6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

This is our first P&O cruise from Southampton and post Covid, so it is difficult to say whether issues were related to Covid restrictions or simply the cruise line. Embarkation was an absolute nightmare, arriving it 13.40 in the car park and reaching our cabin at 17.40. So many staff at the port, but so much disorganisation, with some very unhelpful staff. When we eventually embarked on Britannia, ...

P&O now only 2 star quality. No turn down service, no flannels in bathrooms, towels look 10 years old. Asked for 2 extra pillows looked at aghast and said you want extra pillows you have 4 Staff sullen across ship and could not answer any questions you asked them. In fact quite rude at times. Very poor service in restaurants regarding having to wait for tables. One time in restaurant we were ...
