We chose this cruise for the itinerary , having cruised with other cruise companies including Celebrity .Royal Caribbean Princess, but this was our first with P & O.
Firstly lets deal with the positives food, entertainment cabin and certain crew members were very good if not for them I would have given just ONE.
Sadly, the majority of so called "Hotel " staff were either rude or surly often BOTH and appear to have had no "CUSTOMER SERVICE" training. Often the crew appeared to be working in positions in restaurants, reception etc. with what seems to be little or no training or supervision. Whilst accepting that there is always an ever changing turnover of crew ,compared to other cruise ships, P & O don't appear to worry about training of Staff.
cabin was good in size good storage but shower needs attention Glass door as opposed to "Smelly" shower curtain!. Fixtures are "Tired" and small TV is poor. small choice of TV stations and why NO BBC NEWS on so called BRITISH SHIP
Fabulous call ,full if both history and culture. Expensive
Used "Hop On Hop Off Bus" very good as it took you to both old and new town and country area. tended to be crowded in Town as several cruise ships in port
Great city for art , buildings and culture, For "Abba " fans museum is a must But do it on your own as ship tour does not give enough time
Lovely place to visit lovely friendly town and for those who shop good choice
