Poor end to cruise due to cancelled flight
"Sailed on Britannia 1st Feb around the Caribbean on our third P&O cruise second time on Britannia, and apart from the usual sun bed hogging had a great time on board ship. Why people feel they need to reserve sun..."Read More

This was a test for me - 6 sea days and one port day in Liverpool. Never had I done such cruise but I wanted to know if I would be ok with so much time on board before I book a bucket list transatlantic cruise in the future. In all we spent the full 7 days on board as we did not disembark at Liverpool as you needed to do an excursion and Liverpool is a city I already know well. As it turned out ...

Chose this cruise for our golden wedding anniversary. Could not use the app. All the shows were booked. Could not join what they call a virtual Q for breakfast and dinner. Total shambles and a waist of good money for the five of us. Final statement all wrong with about £300 on it which has nothing to do with us. I have emailed P and O about it a week ago. I know they will not reply. We ate in the ...

This wasn’t our first cruise so we had a rough idea of what to expect and how things should work. Having driven for about 4 hours we arrived at our allotted time only to be told we had to drive elsewhere,off site, to be covid tested, why weren’t we informed about this earlier? On arrival we were told the testing reporting system had crashed and we would have to wait, which we did for about 40 ...

This was my first cruise on P and O previously sailed with RC and Celebrity. Boarding - arrived for covid test which was quick and efficient. Unfortunately there was no information on what to do next. We found out by chance that you went to the terminal and completed all pre boarding checks before getting covid results. So basically hundreds of people crammed in a tiny area, hopefully ...

We have holidayed on P&O cruises at least once a year, sometimes twice, since 2009 so we were delighted that after the enforced Covid break we were at last able to sail again on board a staycation cruise. Sadly however we were somewhat disillusioned with the experiences we had on our return to sailing with P&O. It should be said that we expected things to be different and that there would be ...

our experience (staycation 1st August 2021) as a family of four adults in two un-obstructed balcony rooms - we had previously attended MSC virtuosa (staycation 10th July 2021) some of the mishaps: 1. first day of freedom dining we asked server politely, John (table 195 - Penisula) if it was possible if we could finish the ordered three course meal by 10.30pm to attend the theatre. we arrived ...

I booked this cruise because it matched up with when I could travel. As i was using the CPS parking, I had to go to the Mayflower Terminal for a Covid test. This took about 2 hours, most of that was waiting in a queue. Although it took a long time, the process worked smoothly and was very well organised. After my test I drove to the Ocean Terminal and waited for the car to be checked in. ...

The safest i have felt for over a year . Ship was only 50% full due to rules , felt like the ship feels when you stay on board when in a port of call. Always found a lounger ,seat , we had a table on our own as everyone did . SO good we booked again ,the only chance of feeling like your on a top grade cruise. Food was great crew were great. So logistics as it can be a bit complicated , The ...

Flight over was good and so were transfers to ship. Two days in Barbados to visit relatives then back to the ship to find out the ship was going straight back to Southampton due to CVIRUS. Big shame but we really enjoyed our time on board. Always something to do. Brilliant lectures from Tony White - Drug man!! Gym and classes good. Cabin fine, although had restricted view due to life ...
