Great ship

Review for a Caribbean - All Cruise on Arvia

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

After many years sailing with Princess cruises we decides to have a change and try P & O as they appeared to offer good value for money. Arvia was a new ship and we had received some good reviews about it and its sister ship Iona. We were quite fortunate to be flying TUI from Manchester to Bridgetown and everything went exceptionally well, we certainly liked depositing our luggage at Manchester ...

Felling more downmarket every year, despite getting more expensive!

Review for a Caribbean - All Cruise on Britannia

Booked last year on Board, after a New year cruise, we had some concerns that P&O were cutting everything whilst trying to attract a different client group, but we decided to give it a chance! the result was a mixed bag: The Good: Britannia is still an impressive ship and generally feels spacious, she handles roughish seas quite well. Lots of people made the effort on Celebration night to ...

Seasoned cruisers and over 25 completed now and 2nd time on Britannia and just not sure where it has all gone wrong! So where do i start hmmmmmmm! Ship itself looks very dated and not what what you expect from a ship that is under 10 years old. No technology used to get you around the ship, ok for us but for newbies not easy. Pool Area- lots of tiles missing. Service around the ...

Having just returned from our Caribbean cruise on p&o Arvia and having cruised more than 30 times .i have to congratulate p&o on reducing their standards to little above the average holiday camp .very poor service at all the bars staff that aren’t properly trained to handle the simplest of requests.4 times we had to ask for water in the cabin .my best friend was waved away from 3 different bars ...

Underwhelming Food & Entertainment + Loud Sun Bed Hogging Brits = Average Holiday

Review for a Caribbean - All Cruise on Arvia

Neil Diamond
2-5 Cruises • Age 30s

It pains me to write this review, as we were so excited for 10 months for this holiday. We have been on P&O 3 other times and they were acceptable or even good experiences. Sadly this was our worst, and probably our last cruise (most definitely our last one ever with P&O). For context we work in hospitality, so we really understand and value the hard work that goes into delivering good service, ...

A Curate`s Egg - good in parts

Review for a Caribbean - All Cruise on Arvia

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We were on this ship last January (2023) and enjoyed it so decided to go again. We would not now repeat this as the second time was overcrowded with people who had obviously not eaten in proper restaurants and used knives and forks before! Our cabin on deck 12 was very good and immaculately maintained. One reviewer has complained that beds were not turned down at night - this did not bother us ...

2 Fabulous weeks in the Caribbean

Review for a Caribbean - All Cruise on Britannia

Well after our last cruise on Britannia in June 23 we approached this cruise with some trepidation and more than once had thought of cancelling it prior to departure. I am pleased to say that our fears were totally unfounded, and we had a fabulous first Caribbean cruise for the reasons below. Was it all perfect? No, but the positives definitely outweighed the ‘not so positives’. The ...

Just too big

Review for a Caribbean - All Cruise on Arvia

Gladrdcruising
2-5 Cruises • Age 50s

A nice ship, but it’s just way too big and service levels are very low. Doesn’t stand up to the other cruise lines we’ve been on. The staff work extremely hard, no criticism of them, but they’re faced with 5500 people at a very unfavourable ratio. Prepare to wait for things to happen, drinks, dinner bookings etc….it’s all very impersonal too. Cruising for the masses. The buffet is to be ...

A ship too far?

Review for a Caribbean - All Cruise on Arvia

6-10 Cruises • Age 20s

Picked this cruise as we wanted to try a newer and larger ship compared to our usual cruise line. We typically sail in the 2,500-3,000 pax range of vessels but got a good price and wanted to give it a go. The ship is stunning and stylish with plenty of food/entertainment options which is great. Cabins are fantastic, sleek and spacious so no complaints there. Our major complaint and downside ...

Cruised Caribbean, December 2023. Multigenerational family visit with five cabins booked. Boat is very dirty and not well maintained. Food is very poor quality and hit or miss. Very poor vegetarian options with dried up salads or vegetables that have been overcooked and left out on the side for hours and then thrown on the plate. New Year’s Eve, for a vegetarian Daughter was a plate of salad or a ...
