Sail Date: May 2022

We have been on many p and o cruises on various ships and really enjoyed them This ship is not for us you have to book dining for every meal on an app you download when you get on board. Even have to book entertainment in some cases but these were repeated a lot . Rooms only done once a day Think very short of staff or that’s how it seemed. This was supposed to be a Norwegian fiord’s cruise but we did not see any which was very disappointing. There are plenty of bars and eateries to choose from if you can get in but some are part of public space within the emporium. I think the lack of staff was part of the issue as there seemed to be no communication like on other ships. We never heard about any of the entertainment over tannoy like we have on other ships only introduced by speaker
