this was poor, poor value for what we paid. the food was average on most nights and on some nights it was sent back by myself and other passengers. the evening buffet has been almost diminished to what is was like on p&o five years ago. the vegetables dried up and not a lot of choice, no fish on many occasions. better food at my local carvery, that is not what you expect on a flag ship! we paid a lot of money for this cruise and was really let down in comparison to othed cruise companies. we will never go or recommend p&o again. the acts were mainly poor quality and it was impossible to get a seat in the limelight bar unless you got there about an hour before. pool area was like being at Butlins in the 60's and no way could you get a subbed anywhere after 8.30, around the pools you needed to reserve your bed at about 7o'clock in the morning. the staff did nothing to alleviate this even after many many complaints. go with another company is what i say even if you have to pay a bit more money. i cannot believe what we paid for this cruise and what p&o gave us. also they messed up on sending medical information to the ships officers and i just don't know where that has gone, several passengers had the same problem as myself, please don't bother unless you get it for a bargain price about £400. is what is was worth.

Don't bother.
