Mums 75th Birthday treat.

Having not cruised with P and O for a few years I was surprised at how standards had slipped disappointingly. The food wasn’t anywhere near as good as it’s been on previous cruises with them. The ship itself is noticeably tatty in places as well. Even the bedding wasn’t up to much, my pillow smelt, there were stains on quilts! The staff however were still great and very attentive, especially restaurant, bar and cabin staff and their commitment to their jobs noticeable. No blame is to be laid at their feet this was simply down to cost cutting on P and O’s side. Having cruised with Marella last year, the difference was quite significant now I think about it. You are totally mislead with the Steven Mulhearn show not as expected at all. Dance lessons however were great and good fun. The comedian was excellent and very funny. Not sure I’d cruise again with P and O given this last experience sadly.

Cabin Review

Balcony Stateroom with Shower

Cabin guy, Dom was very sweet and efficient, no faults at all. Cabin was bit tatty in places, stains on bedding (although washed) pillows smelt funny. Mattresses were ok but definitely could do with being replaced as lumpy in places. Plenty storage and clean.
