I chose to go on this ship as we had been on a cruise with p&O before on the beautiful Ventura around the med. it was my 60th and I wanted to do something special so booked this very expensive trip! we booked what was meant to be a deluxe balcony cabin so paid a bit more. So here we go with all that is wrong with this ship:
On arrival to our cabin, we noticed that like the Ventura the settee was a double pull out bed, no problem here, however on asking the steward to make up the bed we were gobsmacked when we returned to find that we literally could not walk around the bed to get to the balcony. It is literally up against the cabinets so you have to climb over the bed to get to the balcony or to make coffee/tea.
far too small compared to ventura and azura, layout is very badly designed, no room when pull out bed is made up, balcony is tiny, not worth the money at all. Noise is ridiculous from upstairs, no sun at all on the balcony due to the massive overhang from the lido deck. Avoid this floor altogether, masses of complaints.
very dirty, bombarded with dodgy taxi drivers
