Review of Iona G306: Spain and Portugal 4th-18th March 2023

This was my first P and O cruise since the pandemic, though I flirted with other lines in 2021 and 2022, and I was nervous to say the least: about the travelling ( been all over the world on my own but the stress caused by the restrictions changed everything); and about Iona because I seemed to read a lot of negative reviews both on here and elsewhere.

Finally I decided just to go, take it as it came, and try to enjoy. And I am so glad I did!

Cabin Review

Absolutely worth the money! Lots of room, with good wardrobe space and deep recesses for folding clothes. Queen size comfortable bed (for some reason the P and O site said this cabin was fixed twins only, but it wasn't and my steward soon sorted me out with a queen size).

Full sized sofa, coffee table and flatscreen TV with good choice of films etc. The conservatory was lovely, light, great sofas, cushions and table, equipped with Altas and binoculars, and a rug. Large sheltered and private balcony with 2 reclining chairs, a footstool and table. Worth the extra for the private space on a busy day at sea.
