Excellent holiday with plenty of hot sunny days. Embarkation and disembarkation was excellently organised and finding our luggage on disembarking was easy. Our cabins were ready when we embarked and luggage was delivered while we had lunch. Cabin was clean with a good balcony. Cabin stewardess was excellent and provided everything required on demand. We used freedom dining as has been our normal when available. we were happy with this . Service in the dining room was excellent and the water were very attentive . Food choice and quality were excellent. The buffet restaurant was OK but with the number on board could be a bit of a "free for all" and best avoided at busy times like 9.00am and 12.00. the ship has an excellent gym with a good choice of state of the art equipment. Entertainment was good with a decent variety. The only thing was the theatre sometimes was a bit warm. there was a reasonable choice of things to do on sea days. The Captain and officers were good at keeping us informed without being intrusive. The captain made several deviations in coarse and speed to minimise ship movement and the ships movement was minimal for the duration of the cruise. The shore excursions we took were Ok if a bit pricy. Overall a good experience and would travel with P&O again.

Cabin Review

Outside Twin with Balcony and Shower
Cabin JE
Good décor with reasonable space. Wardrobe space was adequate. Balcony was good with plenty of space. Shower room was OK . The only problem was the toilet as is not abnormal on ships with the vacuum system had a tendency to block but service in unblocking was quick. Stewardess was excellent and dealt with any problems and requests quickly and efficiently.
