Sail Date: Jun 2019
Cabin: Deluxe Stateroom with Balcony and Bath/Shower

We had been wanting to try another cruise line and this P&O visit to the Mediterranean fitted in with with this.

Arriving at the Cruise terminal at the appointed time meant a swift processing and rapid boarding even if the cabins were not ready. When we were able to access ours we found clean, the bed looked good and the bathroom was fine. The cases arrived shortly after so we were into unpacking when the call for life boat drill came. Our muster station was the Palladium theatre along with countless other. Unfortunately the place we chose had steep steps, The drill was straightforward and included putting on a life jacket.

As we had opted for Freedom Dining and we had been advised to get to the upper deck of the Meridian early so we had a chance of a table for 2, we queued up half an hour early. Using this tactic we always had the same table for two and were we well looked after by James & Michael. We tried lunch once in the Meridian but this did not offer the soup and salad we like. The Belvedere was huge, daunting and difficult to find what we wanted. Thereafter we had a snack in the cabin and a coffee in the Vivo cafe.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Stateroom with Balcony and Bath/Shower

Comfortable bed. Tea and coffee making facilities. Balcony but only chairs and tables and no lounger.

Port Reviews

Malaga

Shuttle bus to town centre. Interesting parts but been there before.

Dubrovnik

Tender port and we landed in the old town. Very well worth exploring with a map.

Split

Used a free shuttle to Diocletian's Palace. Vast warred worth exploring.
