I want my children and families to experience cruises however i did expect them to go out so far. a cruise just off north island would have been more comfortable. The Gatsby theme was fantastic as well as Scottish dancing classes. the food in the restaurants was better than the pantry. The best thing was .. no tipping.. As this was my 18th cruise.. i enjoyed it. Even better , the cruise counts towards my elite status on princess cruises. The catering is well below princess but you have more fun on P&O. I have just come off the majestic princess around the med and then going on P&O was a surprise. I was annoy that they didn't reward customers for regular cruises, They should reintroduce it. Down under offer basic food unless you pay for better.. i am no snob and like both standards but people need to realize we are having a typical family holiday with nice staff and people.
very tidy and acceptable considering i normally have a balcony room.
