We chose this cruise to visit new locations e.g The Gambia, Cape Verdi, and Tenerife. Shortly before joining the ship but after having the Yellow Fever vaccination we were told that the Gambia visit had been cancelled. The communication from P&O was terrible, I had notified them 6 months earlier that we wished to disembark early in Gran Canaria and had received an email confirming this. On boarding nobody was aware of our early disembarkation. The choice of food at the buffet was very poor unless you like Curry and faggots!!! The dining room was the worst we have experienced in 70 cruises, one night the tablecloth was badly stained, another night it was badly torn, and when asked for a steak the waiter replied " we don't have any". The speciality restaurant was not much better, when ordering lamb I was told that it is "fatty", in fact it was all fat. The reception staff were clearly not happy in their jobs and one was constantly aware of this. It took them two days to provide a new cabin key. Read Less

Cruise no E330 - OCEANA - 19th - 29th Dec 2013 Been on this ship a number of times, always had a good cruise. We were looking forward to a wonderful Xmas experience on board this trip what a big disappointment and may I add waste of money. We are not party animals, but there was no Christmas atmosphere on this cruise, which is why we paid the extra for this cruise. 2012, we went on a Warner's Xmas break, better than excellent, P&O could learn from Warner's Xmas festivities. Everything about this cruise was not up to what is promised and expected of P&O.  Even the presentation and quality of the food was not up to the usual standard. The entertainment was also not of the calibre expected and Headliners were rubbish, compared with other cruises. This was also voiced by other passengers. Our plan was to book in advance while on board a 2014 Xmas Cruise, but as we found this cruise to be so poor, we declined and are considering another option. Unfortunately we have already committed ourselves and our payment is now due for a cruise on the Azura departing 19th April, and are not looking forward to this. We can only hope Azura's standards are a great deal higher. If not it may well be our last cruise with P&O. Having cruised a number of times we have only cruised with P&O and have always been satisfied. Our friends are asking if we had a good holiday, they are not sold on a cruise with P&O. The only efficient part of our holiday was the service by Eavesway coaches, and now I am told to use another company for my next cruise. The cutbacks were extremely noticed by all who have sailed with P&O. Considering Oceana has had some refurbishment, having cruised on this ship a number of times it was not noticeable.   Read Less
