Christmas preset from P and O. We received one each!
Part of the decorations

We had never been in a Christmas Cruise before and thought it would be magical. The cruise itself was nice but as for Christmas Spirit it was lacking. The crew wearing santa hats and a 20 minute carol service by officers and crew doesnt make what I expected a christmas cruise to be, especially when you consider the price.

Two places we visited had a long walk to the entrance of the dock and no transport was provided. When this was mentioned to the crew member we were told that she could walk this in 15 minutes or so minutes. Not really interested in what a fit person could walk it in. Another Port we were advised it was. 'Long walk' to the town. We didn't go ashore there at all as no transport was provided again.

I wouldn't do another Christmas cruise when you consider you could do two cruises for the price paid.

Cabin Review

Cabin Inside

Cabin was fine, clean and well presented. There was a bathtub, small but servicable. The hanging cupboards were awkward and the safe was almost on the floor. Great for the age group!!!
