We are veterans of twenty cruises and this was our first time with P&O, we chose a seven night trip to the Norwegian Fjords leaving from Southampton.
Parking was superb, boarding efficient our bags were outside our cabin by the time we got there, room attendant excellent and beyond reproach.
The ship itself was just dull, no wow factors at all everything Brown and beige. The shops were likewise dull with low end products nothing exciting on show.
Food in the main dining room just not good same menu every day with a couple of changes not well presented and everything was just bland. The waiters were indifferent to rude, never introduced themselves just took orders and slapped the food in front of you.
The buffet option was so small and cramped to be a joke the food simply dreadful. The late night snack options a joke.
Entertainment was a mixed bag, one funny comedian one that should have been sent home. A couple of good tribute bands and an excellent rock headliner show. Day time offerings poor.
Drink prices very attractive compared with RCL and Celebrity around £5 to £6 for a cocktail.
Staff generally just not helpful or up to the standard we have learned to expect. We heard to of them chatting about passengers and laughing at them, to my mind totally unacceptable.
Our first and last trip with P&O
Smallish cabin but acceptable rather tired looming, shower curtain small balcony.
