Two weeks on the transatlantic, repositioning, cruise gave us 8 beautifully restful sea days with very calm seas throughout. P&O run an extraordinarily smooth operation in every department whether it is embarkation, entertainment or restaurants. Without exception, all of the stewards, waiters, reception, croupiers et al were efficient, friendly and often went out of their way to go the extra mile.
Food in the Peninsular, apart from one lunch, was very good. The waiters will serve you with almost any desired combination from the menu and their memories as to what to give where and to whom were impressive.
The Horizon buffet is superbly organised, the food is varied and generally hot, and there will always be seating to be found especially as the Beach House no longer exists.
Steward helpful, efficient and unobtrusive.
Balcony is a perfectly adequate size.
Bed very comfortable.
Steep, but very pleasant, walk (30 mins) to Botanical Gardens. $2 entry. Some beautiful trees and the whole place was immaculately tended.
Water taxi to Grande Anse beach with a couple of thousand others.
