Cabin: Outside Twin with Balcony and Shower
Traveled with children

Mixed feelings regarding our Christmas cruise to the Caribbean. The flight form Gatwick, chartered to Thompson was refreshingly pleasant as we booked in premiere and were treated very well indeed with complimentary drinks and very comfortable seating, the interactive entertainment menu again very good.

Arriving in Barbados again was a nice surprise not having to go through airport customs but being "ordered" on to a very old and tired small coach.

Reaching the dock was not too bad but the check in procedure was awful we were herded like cattle in a pen without facility for refreshment for the best part of 45 minutes in very hot and humid conditions without any explanation as to how long this procedure would take "More information from P&O" would have been nice.

Cabin Review

Outside Twin with Balcony and Shower

Cabin JG

Happy with cabin, as expected though the TV entertainment was below par for this day and age.The water pricing was a bit over the top and the basin had a crack though it did not leak.When the balcony was hosed down, everything was left wet and we had to dry it off ourselves.Very comfortable loungers and very comfortable bed.
