This was a thoroughly enjoyable cruise from start to finish. The embarkation and disembarkation were efficient and well managed. The ship was clean and well maintained. The cabin was fine and well serviced by the cabin stewardess whom nothing was too much trouble. The food was good and service excellent. Ewe went for the freedom dining which is now our normal choice where available as we like the flexibility this offers. The buffet was fine but we preferred the restaurant as the former could be a bit crowded and a "bit of a free for all". The choice of food was excellent and quality good. The entertainment was good with a reasonable variety of choice. The theatre viewing was excellent although sometimes a little on the warm side. The gym was excellent with good quality equipment. The Captain was excellent keeping us well informed without being intrusive. He altered coarse and speed several times to optimise stability. The weather as expected in the Caribbean was excellent. The shore excursions we took were Ok if a bit expensive. Overall an excellent experience and would travel on ship and P&O again.

Cabin Review

Outside Twin with Balcony and Shower
Cabin JE
Cabin clean and well serviced. Wardrobe space adequate. Shower room Ok but like most ships vacuum toilets prone to the occasional blockage but service in clearing was good. Balcony again good with plenty of space.
