This was our fourth P&O cruise, and our second on the Pacific Aria,
Our last cruise experience on this ship was very pleasant, so perhaps foolishly we expected similar on this trip, but we were sadly disappointed.
From the outset, I want to make it clear that it is not the ship that is the problem.
We had a balcony cabin on the 9th deck. No issues with the cabin. Nice and spacious. Good storage space. Wardrobes with doors. Suitcases fit neatly under the bed. Lovely big balcony with sun-lounger. The only issue was the shower recess. It was obviously designed for a disabled person. It was tiny, and the fold down seat and railings made it tinier, and we are not small people. The bottles with shampoo etc were situated on the side wall, rather than up near the taps at front, which made it even more awkward! Always banging elbows on it.
