My main concern was with the number of people on board would there be queues at embarkation, restaurants, disembarking or even getting sun loungers? Well, there was no need for me to worry * Embarkation with luggage deliIt wavered to the cabin during lunch was completed within a couple of hours * There was no waiting in line to enter restaurants * Disembarking to go ashore went extremely smoothly * We always found sun loungers Our overall experience was positive. However,...... P&O need to address the service in the main restaurants. Waiters were slow, did not have a proper grasp of English and sometimes were quite rude. It was if they were doing us a favour by serving our meals. It was an effort to get mustard , marmite or honey at breakfast for instance, Also, one could not get a swim unitl 0800. It was only after a little pesuasion that we managed a swim at 0715. Come on P&O , on a Caribbean Cruise get the pool open earlier.

Whatever concerns I had were not an issue

Cabin Review

Cabin
Our cabin which was forward on G deck was excellent with ample space. There was also a balcony and sofa . Our bed was large and extremely comfortable. Bathroom facilties were very good as well. Great shower with enough space to move around. Anything we needed was there.
Finally plenty of wardrobe space .
