Sail Date: May 2022

This cruise was the first one back and I was so eager to get back on a cruise ship. I cruised solo on this trip.

I have to confess that P&O aren't my favourite cruiseline, but after 27 months since my last cruise, I felt I had to be on this one. And I am glad I did.

The atmosphere and crew were awesome. It was heavenly to feel the motion of the sea once more. Service was good, BUT I generally find that P&O are not solo friendly in regards to dinning. I like to be seated with others. So when I made a reservation at Angelos, I asked to be seated at a shared table, on the 2nd night. I turn up that night, to be seated at a table for 4. No other people turn up, so I ended up eating alone. If I had known that, I would have just gone to the Pantry. (Which I did for the rest of the cruise)
