We chose this cruise as it looked like it would be relaxing with a some interesting ports and it did't disappoint, embarkation at Southampton was well organised and stress free, enjoyed the sea days relaxing and although the ship was full we could always find a lounger, the ship is well laid out and easy to navigate and is well maintained with modern decor & furniture. We really enjoyed the evening entertainment with a great mix of artists and shows, particularly liked the comedian Micky Zany and the Annie Lennox tribute, the headliner shows were high quality and enjoyable. The food in the MDR was excellent, we didn't have one meal we didn't enjoy, the new vegetarian menu is great, so nice to have so much choice every night. The service was very good freindly and efficient, couldn't fault it in fact the service all over the ship was spot on. The food in the buffet was also good, especially liked having breakfast out on deck. We had an inside cabin on deck 8 which was kept spottlesly clean by our hard working steward, it was big enough and had everthing we needed with a very comfortable bed. Didn't do any excursions so can't comment. We have already booked another two cruises with P&O as we always feel well looked after and think they offer excellent value for money Funchal Madeira- lovley port, easy to do yourself, highlight was the cable car to Monte then back down in a wicker basket Santa Cruz de La Palma- small pretty port with historic centre and black sandy beach Santa Cruz de Tenerife- another easy to do port, good for shopping and we had tasty & cheap tapas in the old town, highlight was the Botanical Palm garden a bit of a walk from the ship Las Palmas de Gran Canaria- spent some time on the excellent beach a short walk through town, great for swimming Arrecife Lanarote- scruffy, run down with lots of graffiti, there is a beach within walking distance of the ship Lisbon- lovely city with beautiful architecture, used the hop on & off bus red line which was worth doing Vigo- pleasnt city to walk round, highlight was Samil beach a taxi ride away

Loved It!

Funchal Madeira- lovley port, easy to do yourself, highlight was the cable car to Monte then back down in a wicker basket

Santa Cruz de La Palma- small pretty port with historic centre and black sandy beach

Santa Cruz de Tenerife- another easy to do port, good for shopping and we had tasty & cheap tapas in the old town, highlight was the Botanical Palm garden a bit of a walk from the ship

Las Palmas de Gran Canaria- spent some time on the excellent beach a short walk through town, great for swimming

Arrecife Lanarote- scruffy, run down with lots of graffiti, there is a beach within walking distance of the ship

Lisbon- lovely city with beautiful architecture, used the hop on & off bus red line which was worth doing

Vigo- pleasnt city to walk round, highlight was Samil beach a taxi ride away
