The cruise set off prior to virus and went well until half way round when virus caught up with us it then became a mystery tour which p & o dealt with in a brilliant way. The boat was a bit old and other were buckets around catching drips, but it didn't interfer with anything. Restaurant was excellent good service and food. The self service restaurant was ok breakfast was really good, so was lunch evening meal always seemed to have a curry in some shape or form, but always had steak which was cooked to order. We only went to sidhu once but it was very good. The entertainment was varied and mostly very good. The ports that we did stop at were well described and lots of tips if you were doing it on your own. The captain's that we had were very good especially captain Luca he had to deal with the change of ports and authorities regarding the virus. It was a disappointment not to have the cruise that we signed up for but p and o did everything in their power to still give us an experience to remember. We really enjoyed our cruise and a big thank you to p and o in this difficult time. Some people didn't enjoy the experience but we did. In the extreme circumstances a really lovely holiday. Didn't use the fitness centre or any of the trips to comment on. However there was an excellent bridge tutors which we attended they were brilliant. The library was also well stocked and a used book swope which was also good. The shop was ok but take own washing powder if you want to wash. Laundrette was also good I never had any problem getting a machine.

Cabin Review

Inside Stateroom with Shower

Inside cabin which was adequate for sleeping in. Fridge tea and coffee plus biscuits everyday. Stayed outside all day and spent little time in room. Was well satisfied with the cabin. Bed large and very comfy to sleep in with nice soft pillows.
