Spain and Portugal on a lovely new ship.

Two important things to consider when booking any cruise with P&O at the moment is firstly to book the car park early if you are not on select Fare as the CPS car park was not available one week before so we had to book a hotel package (or we chose too). Secondly trying to get through to P&O on the phone was virtually impossible all communication had to be done by email and took 4 days to get a ...

First cruise with P&O and definitely the last! The food is mediocre at best which is made worse by the myholiday app. You will be lucky to eat in the a la carte restaurants as I’m on day 5 of the cruise and they are fully booked for the rest of the cruise. I now have to queue up every day or use the ‘buffet’ restaurant. There seems to be no set drinks policy, what you get in one bar is ...

Just a little background: my wife and I have done about a dozen cruises over the past 20 years on a number of lines, including 3 previously on P&O, but our largest ship previously was Royal Caribbean’s Navigator of the Seas so Iona was a step up in size. We were also travelling with my parents, this was their very first cruise, so I’ve brought some of their impressions into my review ...

Booked this one as wanted to see what Iona was like and to get away on a cruise again. Boarding and testing was mostly good and fast and we kept on moving but we did keep getting asked the same questions about 4 times by different people and the lady checking us in was dreadful - I couldn’t hear anything she said , she made no effort to be clearer for us and seemed as if she didn’t want to be ...

“Wow, what a massive ship” as one older lady said to me. “It’s so wide!” It’s not just the width but also the length that takes you by surprise. You seem to be walking forever to get from one area to another. It is less open and free flowing than some older and smaller ships because they have been able to fit in more of everything – bars, shops, restaurants etc, which interrupt sight lines and ...

First the positives. Friendly, helpful staff. Great entertainment, especially Craig stewart in Brodie’s. A lovely boat as you would expect fro a brand new boat. Food delicious in all areas. Our favour as Sindhu, excellent value. Negatives. Very small cabins only 14 inches between Wardrobe and bed. Restaurant booking. THere is no freedom dining it Is all booked using the The P and O app, ...

Iona, Nice ship but the P+O money making machine is out of control. Time for a change to another cruise line.

First of all, we are / we're Loyal P+O cruisers so having last cruised in Jan 2020, we were desperate for a break so we booked the Iona southern short break down to northern Spain, up the coast of France and past the Channel Islands. The covid pre boarding testing drive through was fairly straightforward, a swab of the nose only and drive to the port to await a text of negative or if unlucky ...

This was booked as a staycation cruise, we'd never travelled P & O before but thought as the ship was brand new and they were the first company to offer cruises after lock down we'd take a chance. Iona is beautiful, she was clean and smart as you'd expect a new ship to be, however there was just something missing, the lift areas, the corridors to cabins felt very bog standard and underwhelming. ...

This was a test for me - 6 sea days and one port day in Liverpool. Never had I done such cruise but I wanted to know if I would be ok with so much time on board before I book a bucket list transatlantic cruise in the future. In all we spent the full 7 days on board as we did not disembark at Liverpool as you needed to do an excursion and Liverpool is a city I already know well. As it turned out ...

Our trip can be described as "Ups and Downs". Great boat, beautiful decor, different bars. Super clean, absolutely amazing, thank you to all cleaning staff, what a great job their doing. Our highlights were the Infinity pools, whirlpool spas all around the ship, silent disco, the gym, the Glass house and La Voix (the best performer). Unfortunately, the cruise was not organised very well. On ...
