Just ok

Firstly, I wanted to give more stars, I really did, but having had my first cruise in 2013 on Oriana which was wonderful, this one was just not worth all the money. Embarkation was easy and at the exact time ...

Try it, see what you think; P&O dont care.

This was only our second cruise the first being with Royal Caribbean, no comparison. The ship looked OK and our cabin although a bit dingy was passable, however, it soon became apparent that this ship was getting ...

Enjoyable but Rather Rocky

I have recently returned from a trip on this ship to The Canary Islands. My friend and I were upgraded to a deluxe balcony cabin but I honestly don't know what makes it deluxe. The cabin was clean enough, beds were ...

My wife and I, both 60, chose this cruise mainly because it sailed from Southampton and because it went to Madeira and the Canaries. We are fed up with flying out to meet cruise ships and the ridiculous airline ...
