Worst cruise I've ever been on.

I chose this cruise to get a little bit of sun, rather than sit at home watching the rain. This being my third time on Azura, I thought I knew what to expect. Embarkation went smoothly, and I was in my cabin ...

Some lovely islands

Profit over passengers

This was a new ship and the flight left from my local airport. The only deck you could walk on was the top deck and you would have to fight your way around sunbeds and passengers. The only way to sit outside ...

Easy cruising from Barbados and with the £ Stirling as the ship's currency.

Having used Princess, Celebrity and Costa to cruise the Caribbean in the past via Miami and US Immigration, it is refreshing to cruise with P&O for the following reasons: Say goodbye to your luggage at Manchester ...

Dissatisfied cruise

I have put this review on here rather than send to P.O. as P.O. would take no notice, and it would be filed away as it’s not what they want to hear, but more people will see it on this site. We picked the Jan ...

A very big ship,but it is easy to find your way around.

My Wife and I picked this ship because had never sailed with P&O before. We were a bit worried that we would get lost on the ship, as it was very big, and had a lot of lounges to find on the lower decks. At ...
