Transatlantic Carribean Cruise

Sail Date: March 2013
Destination: Transatlantic
Embarkation: Barbados
P & O bill themselves as britains number one cruise company if they want to keep this title they need to start thinking about there passengers.

Although the cabins are kept clean by the hard working cabin stewards it is not matched by the in cabin entertainment. Yes they offer and interactive TV system that has bbc & sky news and sky sports news the interactive tv programmes that you can watch is not well thought out yest they offer free films and what they calss as favourite tv shows that offers a variety of programmes however they could change these on a regular basis.

For a cruise that had 8 days sailing the on deck entertainment could have been better the entertainment team did not do a lot during sea days in fact if it was not for the sail away parties or the daily table tennis competition you would not have known that there was an entertainment team onboard.

The evening entertainment was not much better as they only tribute acts that they had was Phil More Collins who was very good and a Cliff Richard tribute that is not everyones cup of tea.

When it comes to disembarkation the reception staff seem to be unwilling to change the time of your disembarkation on unwilling to think about there passengers I contacted them snd explained that i had a train to catch from manchester to edinburgh that afternoon and asked if there was anyway that we could change the disembarkation time due to our time for the train I was told that this was not possible however we discovered that other passengers that were transferring from southampton to manchester airport were leaving the boat an hour earlier that us, this unwillingness to change our time resulted in us missing our train from manchester which resulted in us having to purchase new train tickets.
