Charlies Bar coffee is as good as you will get anywhere 3. Waterfront Restaurant food good but limited number of tables for 2 and difficult to get one 4. Entertainment average 5. Drinks expensive but cold Bad 1. Not a trip to be recommended for Seniors. 2. Buffet food was ordinary and some just warm 3. Boarding procedure and security takes far too much time 4. Walk from security to ship boarding point much too far for elderly passengers 5. Price of everything on board much too high 6. Most seating in pool and most areas occupied by young inconsiderate passengers Would we travel P&O again? Doubt it.
