Sail Date: Apr 2016
Cabin: Interior

Short itinerary and date was ideal - especially as we went as far South as Lisbon.

Travelled down a couple of days in advance just to elongate the holiday, stayed near Romsey at the Potter Heron Hotel - very good, visited Romsey Abbey, Salisbury Cathederal, and Poole Quay.

On departure day, dropped cases off at the Mayflower Terminal at 11:20, parked car at Southampton Airport - (£42.00), train and taxi back to the boat, thus saving over £30:00 on the CPS quayside parking charge. Boarding was swift and efficient (Elite Line), and so on board by 12:35 - result. Nice surprise to find our Cabin available -) pity P&O cannot emulate this efficiency).

Cabin Review

Interior

Cabin IE

Typical Grand Class inside - good size plenty of space for clothes. Bathroom again standard size. Well maintained.

Port Reviews

Southampton

Great Shopping Centre, and great base for touring the immediate area - stayed about 5 miles away near Romsey Potters Heron Hotel - good break rates.

Vigo

Good Spanish Town, quite hilly for looking around, but well worth it.

Local Coffee shops excellent value at Euro 1.20 a cup - Starbucks eat your heart out!

Lisbon

See main review re my LIsbon day

St. Peter Port (Guernsey)

Not a great place
