Sail Date: Jun 2019
Cabin:

First time for me on P & O. Arrived Southampton midday despite advertised motorway issues and car quickly disposed of. Checkin quick and security tight. Wife Barbara had put an oversized pair of scissors in case and it was spotted in x ray as it went through. So we were called to examine the case. Well done security, we hadn’t realised and they were on the ball.

Once on the ship straight to buffet. Very good buffet and better than Royal Caribbean in our view. This carried on throughout the week. Always good choices. Only negatives no American style crispy bacon. Good coffee though.

Staff throughout the cruise awesome. P & O should be proud of this crew. Always a smile, a chat, a laugh, a story. Special mention of the top man I call Captain Speaking Coz that’s what he says lol. Jokes, informative, style, professional. When delays occurred you knew why. He had the full info and told you. Real name Wesley Dunlop. His crew learnt from the top man and it shows.
