Was a bit apprehensive as I had an 'OK' experience on the Britannia last year to the Canaries. Need not have worried as the ship was much better. I did not have a bad meal. The lunchtime Sindhu 'tapas' menu for £4.95 was ... Read more

It seemed to take time for things to warm up on the ship (atmosphere wise) but did improve and we met some great people. This was our 4th trip now with P&O and whilst we enjoyed it we didn't seem to get the same feeling as we did on ... Read more

Whilst we enjoyed our cruise down to Madeira and the Canary Islands, stopping in Lisbon and Vigo on the way, it was marred by what was obviously too many people being crammed on board. On boarding, we found our balcony cabin was the ... Read more

Excellent food good choices, everything was clean, in fact our rooms were cleaned twice a day. The service of all the staff was excellent. However, I was a bit concerned that `many` of the activities was `money raising` related. It ... Read more

We had an inside cabin for the first time, previously on other cruises we've always had a balcony. The cabin was ok, if a little cramped, but as usual with P&O there was plenty to do on the ship on sea days, and we spent a lot of time ... Read more

I've waited nearly a year to write this so it didn't become an r,optional reaction. We chose this cruise as it was P&Os newest ship and there was a lot of hype about how good it was. The embarkation was terrible. I'd phoned up to ... Read more

This was our 5th cruise, the others being with the princess ships which we thought were p&o but were told was a different part so were unable to get any loyalty discounts. We found boarding was fast and friendly although we did have to ... Read more
