What a great ship. Everywhere was spotlessly clean, the food was very good and the staff could not be more helpful. The only thing you should be careful of is where your cabin is located and the time at your destinations. I myself did not book this short break so I never researched the cabin layouts. Be aware do not book any inside cabins at the rear of the ship unless you like the constant drone of the air conditioning plant. As it was only a four might stay we put up with it but there is no way you can last any longer. We visited Brugges and Amsterdam and they were both great. The only niggle was that on our intinery we were told that we will be leaving Amsterdam early evening the next day, but left at 7am the next day instead. We asked at reception about this and mentioned that we were not informed about the change of departure times either by post or e mail. The polite reply was, "it's on our web site", so beware. Due to the time of departure and the speed the ship was going ( 15 mph ) it took over 24hours to reach Southampton was this a ploy of P&O for people to spend more money on board.

Keep checking their web site
