First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

Our first cruise , amazing experience , excellent service , very clean and all staff couldn’t help enough. Fly cruise to the Caribbean. Prepaid excursions were well worth the money with excellent guides on the day. Unfortunately due to weather , one port stop had to be cancelled and P and O refunded the cost straight away . We upgraded to an outside cabin with balcony which was a blessing as the ...

After reading many bad reviews about Arvia,we had mixed feelings about getting onboard,but we always say let's make our cruise the best we can make it what ever happens.We have been on plenty of cruises with different cruise lines and plenty with P and O. We have to say we had a fantastic time ,yes it wasn't perfect ,but we didn't experience anything to really moan about.Food was of a good ...

We have been on Iona a number of times so as this is the sister ship, we expected a similar experience. So wrong there ! Also, the staff came over as uninterested, some were just downright rude. It did not make for a happy atmosphere which for me totally ruined the holiday. Lets start with food. On the Iona, the Olive Grove is Italian fare. Not on Arvia. My Ceasar salad starter was literally ...

Spent a lot of money for myself and my disabled partner to spend 2 weeks on Arvia. We paid extra for a balcony that we were unable to use due to a smoker in the next cabin. The guy was out on his balcony every day smoking. No exaggeration he was lighting up a cigarette every 10-15 minutes. I honestly don't think he ever left his room. We complained to reception and at first I was impressed as they ...

Having had a wonderful experience on Iona 18 months ago we wanted to check out Arvia going to the Caribbean. The experience started badly when we found out we were flying with Maleth Aero - an airline I have never heard of and if I had known this was the airline, it would have certainly put me off booking. The eight hour flight had no in flight entertainment or any duty free service. The ...

Sadly, I'm of the same opinion of other prople on board Very disappointed with this Carabbean trip. Ports over crowded by too many ships. However, l must say, the staff were excellent. Our cabin steward did his best to keep our tardy cabin clean everyday. The shower head was broken which took two attempts at repair; there was mould in the shower corners; the toilet seat was disgusting: ...

Good value for money, but does P&O care?

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

This was our first P&O cruise so tried to keep an open mind and not try to compare with the other companies that we have used. The flight from Birmingham and transfer at Barbados worked well even though we didn’t have our luggage before we went for dinner. We originally opted for Club Dining first sitting and because we only booked 4 weeks before sailing we did not get a table for 2 but were ...

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

We have done 5 Caribbean cruises with P&O and this was the least satisfactory. Arvia is a huge ship and seems to have taken P&O distinctly downmarket compared to what we are used to. The one positive element on our cruise was Captain Camby, who was very assertive and authoritative, as well as keen to meet and communicate with his passengers. The behaviour of some of our fellow passengers was not ...

Really shocked at how standards have fallen! This was a third rate cruise, dirty cutlery, grubby carpets in the Horizon Court, disgusting tables with grime all around the silicon where they were not cleaned adequately. There was an outbreak of D&V on board during the first part of our cruise, we actually boarded on the 1st of March. We complained about the lack of cleanliness many times, our ...
