Sail Date: Feb 2016
Cabin: Balcony Stateroom with Bath/Shower

P and O offer a satisfactory standard but are confused about who their customers are.

Cheap deals do mean that there are times when the ship becomes a 'booze cruise ' ( we had some lovely but boisterous Aussie's for about a week, it was a similar story after CapeTown).

We like the formal nights but they are frequent and supposedly optional and here lies the problem. The entertainments manager clearly disagrees with P and O policy that formal is optional which creates unpleasant friction in the theatres and other parts of the ship when both formal and casual come together. We witnessed sneers and abuse which we felt extremely uncomfortable with, it spoils everything.

Cabin Review

Balcony Stateroom with Bath/Shower

The cabin was of a good standard and of a reasonable size. Room service was efficient and friendly.
