If you have been with P&O since the start of 1970 as I have, over 20 cruises, you will notice how things have changed. More and more things have be dropped. Menu's have been cut down as have wine lists. Food not up to old standards. Service not to bad.

Year ago you would have people from television or films for entertainment, but not now. Shows still the same old thing. The sail away is terrible. Same old records same old flag waving. I feel they treat you like little children.

Doctor charges, drinks and shopping on board is very expensive . Could see really no duty free. When there is a sale all the old junk is brought out.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Stateroom with Balcony and Bath/Shower

Cabin DA

The best thing about the cruise. The lady who serviced the room plus our butler were very very good. Nothing was to much trouble for them.

Port Reviews

Southampton

Southampton is where we embarked

Vigo

Friendly people. Not a great port.

Palma de Mallorca (Majorca)

Always like this part of the world. Lots to see and do.

Athens (Piraeus)

Due to arriving on a Sunday not much to see. Why do P&O dock at some ports on a Sunday when most shops are closed.

Odessa

Did not go to this place on this cruise. Although I did go on another one a few years ago. I enjoyed the place.

Yalta

Again not on this cruise.

Istanbul

One of the best places. It would be very nice if P&O docked in abetter place. Not where building are being pulled down.

Malta (Valletta)

Again docked by oil rigs. And again on a Sunday

Lisbon

Another beautiful place.

Kusadasi

Did not go there.
