Lovely ship which is quite compact put alongside the bigger more modern ones. The boarding at the start was seamless and the extended balcony cabin on deck 9 was very roomy. The staff were excellent in all departments on service level and the food was of good quality. The ship is let down badly by the Buffett restaurant which is not fit for purpose. The serving area is far too small for the number of people trying to use it (this was virtually every part of their opening times - early/late etc) the food choice was also very limited and usually consisted of a main roasted meat - a curry of some sort and a vegetarian option so not much selection - to actually get to the food was almost a bun fight with clashing trays and queues from different ends for the same serving space. The situation was exacerbated by the fact that the crew kept shutting different seating and service areas, we got moved (with our meal) on two separated occasions and not let back in to where we had had our first course without much protestation even though our bags were in there. The only other major fault with the ship is the ladies toilet (or number of them) my partner had to queue on numerous occasions. Overall a nice ship, admittedly it was full with no spare rooms apparently but the ship can’t cope with that many people - lucky for us that when no sun beds were available we could retire to our balcony for some peace and quiet.
Entertainment was pretty good tbf - did like Benjamin Moss - worth seeing but overall not as enjoyable as other ships on p&o or other cruise lines
