Last minute bargain and thoroughly enjoyed. Food in buffet was pretty good although sometimes lukewarm but guess this is to be expected when such large quantities are being served. Meals in Baytree restaurant were really nice and service was prompt and friendly. Entertainment onboard was excellent. Ship was clean and all staff friendly and polite. We had an inside cabin which was fine but quite dated. Don’t think P&O should change for the shuttle service though, this should be included in the price. My only bugbear is people who don’t wash their hands after using the toilet nor using the sanitizer, I can never understand this and the lack of hygiene is pure laziness in my opinion! Surely it’s in everyone’s interest to keep sickness and diarrhoea bugs away so everyone can have a happy and healthy cruise. Embarkation at Southampton was quick, disembarkation a little slower but it was great not having to have the hassle of airports. Overall a great cruise and would definitely go on this ship again.

Fab cruise
