Having previously cruised extensively with P&O we were very disappointed at the continual decline in what this company actually achieves whilst still promising a whole lot more.

Every previous passenger without exception agreed that P&O cut back on what they were offering or were now charging for what was previously a given.

A little for instance, they still serve petit fours after a meal but they're not worth the time even eating, so poor is the offering. The food is at best adequate, nothing at all outstanding, the meat is fatty the fish dry and the veggies laughable.

Many of the crew and officers have been quite candid in agreeing that standards and quality has diminished, unfortunately the price hasn't !!!

It's as if a smart Alec accountant has been through the ship and cut out or down any of the signature attractions P&O once had.

This is not a cruise line that I would recommend to anyone expecting the "P&O ' experience, it's at best a 3 star offering, being promoted as a something more.

The captain and the cruise Director both invited comment before we all left to comment on Cruise critic but the fact is neither is really interested or able to do anything positive. It's all a big sell.

The cruise director was thought by many to be somewhat churlish in his attitude, which I am in full agreement with. Unfortunately he also thought he should treat the passengers like children too.

My comment ?? Wake up P&O and start delivering what you are promising

P&O. Promise much - deliver little
