Sail Date: Dec 2022

Chose this cruise because it was new and read a lot of P&O pre publicity about the ship. Total disappointment as there are simply too many people on board. Constant queues around the ship for most of the restaurants, waiting times for drinks in the bar totally unacceptable. You have to “virtual queue” for a table in the main restaurants, in our case at one time had to wait 1 hour for a table. Even had to queue for 50 minutes in freezing temperatures for a shuttle bus to Hamburg. Sea days were particularly bad. Had to request toiletries for the cabin, even though we had a suite. The cabin was generally good, as was the food in the main restaurants. Would like to have tried the speciality restaurants but these were fully booked within a few hours of getting on board. All round, very dissatisfied, too many people, meaning service levels were pretty poor.
