Service in restaurant was very hurried manic at times food was hit or miss menus ranged from the sublime to the ridiculous steaks were appalling and most evenings food was cold -lunch however much better than dinner food on buffet terrible and cold every time we tried it.we spent a lot of time up on lido deck and the outside tables were never washed down they were periodically tidied and dirty crockery removed but by the and of the cruise they were sticky ugh! They had new carpets fitted just before we cruised and they didn’t fit very well at all in the deck corridors and the off cuts and trimmings were still on the floor of the lifts up to last day! On the other hand the entertainment was good! But dress code for dinner non existent t shirts with rude slogans allowed come on!Would I cruise with p&o again I don’t think I would we sailed on Ventura on her maiden voyage and can honestly say that things have gone downhill since then the interactive tv screens we enjoyed all those years age eg cabin service /account accessibility no longer available

Very disappointing
