Cabin:

went with this cruise as a good way off spending 2 days at the open ,as has been said the boat is getting old and in some places it shows but i was surprised overall there are a lot off areas to sit and have a drink etc. the staff do a great job some off the managment staff did not measure up they think there very inportant people the food i wood score c+ there were some very good things but some poor as well drinks are a little higher in price than other cruises i have been on the wine $40 for a $10 wine shop bottle no happy hours anywhere entertainment was a bit off hit and miss some good we were 7 hours late leaving sydney still waiting for them to say sorry no offer off a drink or any compo when you loose 10%off the time on board you would expect something from p+o but no $75 to use sauna for 5 days only cruise line i have been on that charges for this its going to take a lot for us to go p+o again i would only go with them as a last ressort look to other lines ,i was happy with the cabin good size bed was very good but no fridge same cruise next year is$400 more bad joke should be $250 less

Cabin Review

small cabins but about same size as other older ships small fridge and safe large tv limited chanels the cabin staff are very good all ways there if you need them ,bar staff are on fiji time most beers start at $6.50 up to$10 cocktails $13 but wine $35 for bottles that cost $7 on shore to use sanua/steam rooms/change room $99 for 6 day cruise now thats a bad joke the gym is small and gets crowded the staff dont care about kids playing in the area all public areas are small so are very crowded if you have a problem with p+o good luck changed our cabin without notice still waiting for reply will go elsewhere next cruise
