We had our doubts about the Aria after reading some crappy reviews, but this cruise was absolutely fantastic.

This was our 11th cruise and our 8th with P&O. Everything from the food to the service to the cabins was absolutely 5 star.

The ship itself is stunning. The new decor is incredible. We loved the idea of The Pantry instead of a buffet and we ate at Angelos, Dragon Lady, Salt and the Waterfront and all dining venues were exceptional for their service and food.

The Osso Bucco at Angelos was incredible and the food at Dragon Lady was beautiful - we ordered 3 entrees and 4 mains for 2 of us so we could try a few dishes. As usual, Salt was 5 star for food and service.

The ONLY negative about the whole trip was the drink prices. I ordered a rum and ginger beer (in a small glass) and it cost $20!!! Some of the cocktails were $19 in the mix bar. We are wine lovers and the wine list in all areas of the ship was impressive.

Can't wait to travel on the Eden in December.
