We were aboard 25 minutes after arriving at the terminal, excellent service. Food was very good, except when we ate dinner in the cafeteria twice, which we felt was not quite up to P & O's usual high standard. Black tie nights were very special, but we wish that the staff could remind some passengers to dress accordingly. If people do not want to join in these events dressed correctly, they should stay in their cabins. The entertainment was as good as usual, although we did see three acts we saw on our 2016 cruise, but they were all worth seeing again. We had not cruised the Canaries before, and felt that several of the ports of call did not offer much of interest in the town.We really enjoyed Madeira and La coruna where there was more to see. Leaving the ship at the end of the cruise was very efficient. A very relaxing holiday.

Another enjoyable cruise with P & O

Cabin Review

Outside Twin with Balcony and Shower
Cabin JA L308
comfortable, and just where we like to be on the ship. Cabin steward looked after us very well, including an ice bucket every day.
