We have sailed with several companies and overall decided as we were going to be on board for 52 nights on P&O because it is less formal than some, although the food choice is more limited than others.
We had a fabulous time and generally everyone on board was extremely helpful and polite. The entertainment was excellent with very interesting lectures and port reviews. We found that the excursions offered something for everyone.
Just a few words of warning!
Please read above.
We choice 'Charms of Manila'. Wish we'd chosen a more adventurous trip. But as a trip for easy access, it was excellent.
Very good. Hong Kong Park, is just beautiful. Pray for good weather at the Peak! Managed to get lunch in the market with the Chinese and away from the tourists.
Also went on the 'Evening Harbour Cruise'. Forget it! Such a rip off! Stay on the boat and enjoy the lights from there.
Not for us. The 'Villages and Countryside' excursion was a farce. Sitting on a coach going around in circles waiting for actors to get into place on a a patch of mud pretending it's a paddy field, is rather ridiculous and 'Ho Chi Minh City on your Own' was rather spoiled as we were told that American Dollars would be accepted...no they are not!!!! Fortunately we had a credit card with us!
Beautiful island. Fabulous lunch in a restaurant over looking the bay. Perfect! Be warned about walking around in Naples on your own. No that safe! Be very aware.
