in jan the weather in uk is rubbish so why not do a caribean cruise from southampton to break up the winter . .the drive from scotland is 450 m so we stop near oxford for an overnight break and then on to southampton the folowing day.the port parking in southampton is so expensive we use park at my house .com or similar and use taxi to get to p&o terminal .in the past we allways payed the tips up front but due to lack of intrest from some off the staff on board we now cancell tips and reward the staff that we think deserve the tips .at this point i would have to say p&o represent good value for money and you do get what you pay for . the majority of the staff are very good and unlike most off the cruise ships we are permited to bring a bottle off spirits on board for consumpsion in the cabin.p&o are very uk orientated and are used to uk market the bars are pub prices

the wine a litle expensive in the restaraunt .we book our own shore excursions with an independent company.day time entertaiment at sea is very good.embarcation and disembarcation is a hit or miss. our first cruise with p&o was on the canberra p&o decided to cancel all our previous points attained with them and also with the princess line .princess which was sister ship company to p&o

have given all the all the points for p&o cruises that we have done so sailing with princess we have lots more benifits and loyalty with princess than we have with p&o which is a little sad but there you go .its good you can wash your clothes in the laundry and get all the gossip much more goes on on a cruise ship than you think good bye
