Sail Date: Nov 2016
Cabin: Outside Twin with Balcony and Shower

Overall this was a pleasure with, if I want to be picky, a few grouches.

Ship can get a bit overcrowded and shovey if you turn up at peak times for meals in buffet restaurants. Also, to be sniffy, some passengers would seem close chums of portly Onslow and family in that Mrs Bucket comedy series. Or the Royle family on their hols. Brits abroad who let us down.

Swilling drinks, shouty, bit whiffy, tattoed, smokers, regular belchers and trumpers, string vests and they care not a jot for other passengers. P&O try hard to maintain good standards but just a few passengers foil them! Not P&O's fault.

Cabin Review

Outside Twin with Balcony and Shower

Clean tidy and attentive steward. Shower was doorless and cramped with just a curtain. Slight whiff of urine (as we first arrived) round the loo. It lingered despite cleaning.
