Embarking. 2 hours to get on ship were greeted handouts to get wifi, photo studio information and spa deals! I dont remember any other staff with a welcome aboard hello.
This was 4th cruise with P&O and will be our last.
We requested early dining thinking it would be about 5.45 to 6.00 but we were booked in at 5.15 every day we did request a later sitting and was refused so we couldn't take advantage of a lot of afternoon activities with such an early booking. The 3 restaurants were nice for decor and service. Menu was bland/boring each menu was similar ie fish, chicken, vegetarian usually a slow cooked dish and another miscellaneous choice the difference being 1 was asian style 1 was italian style and 1 was a la cart.
The configuration of the cabin was good. The one saving grace was the larger balcony on Deck 10 and we spent a lot of time here as the seas were calm and it was very pleasant sitting outside with drink away from the noise at the pool
