P&O (Poor & Orrible) a management exercise in cost cutting?

Not the first time, on P&O, but it will be the last! Ship tired, and old( in maritime years- past its use by date). The pantry a good idea, rather than self service smorgasbord (keeps grubs away from ...

Let me start by saying we had a great time, visited some amazing places, meet some great people and had plenty of time to relax as well but standards have certainly slipped since the last time I cruised with P&O. ...

Some things were great, others not so great.

Ok so the reviews have you worried....don't be but just have an opened mind and I would suggest only booking a short cruise on Aria - anything longer than 4 to 5 nights would be too long! Worst things - can't ...
