P&O Europe Cruise Reviews

Mr Barlow in concert, the only positive event on this cruise and I am not a fan of him or Take That, he was very good though so I will eat my words.
Pool deck 18 worryingly left full when all others were empty due to dangers. Not attended by anyone either.
Rain ahead.22* C at sea, nothing for us going on. OK if you an dance, Zumba, keep fit with 20’s plus. Crap, just enjoy the Sun.

Review for Azura to Europe - All

What a shame, Just been on 3rd and last cruise on Azura. The experience has been cost cutted too far. The prices no longer reflect value for money in my opinion. I used to love Azura but after being woken up at 5.30am by cabin on ship shuddering with side engines all draws rattling etc. Having breakfast and my eggs being "forgotten" by waiter in restaurant, only to bring them 20 ...

We sailed on this ship before covid and it was fine,however the ship has gone downhill fast. Bad bits No cruise director No orchestra Stage shows poor Lack of maintenance obvious with common areas tired and cabins clean but need a refresh, The buffet is too small and the food is probably better in prison as for breakfast they have floating scrambled eggs , brown stuff they say ...

It was as cheap and now I know why, , things have changed, no cruise Director, No backing orchestra, Food in buffet is like slop, limited choice, presentation like school dinners and the onboard bakery is manned by school children im sure as cakes are like amateurs efforts., very tired ship, paint peeling, cabins clean but tired., basically everything seem to be done on a reduced budget. Obvious ...

I am a retired, professional travel writer. These are my views on Iona based on over 35 cruises on various ships. Embarkation and disembarkation Southampton - excellent, CPS parking first rate, supplied as part of the package. Cabin 8307, conservatory mini suite on deck 8 - comfortable, lovely conservatory opening to balcony. None of the predicted privacy issues from passengers using the ...

Thought we'd try the pride of the fleet . Great metalwork ,shame about the rest of it . This ship sums up Britain , too many people ,too few services . They try to cram 5200 people into facilities for 3000, by using a virtual queueing system that is supposed to work thro' an app on your phone , might work with a ship full of 17 yr olds ......not with older people . You have to plan every day ...

Ship in poor condition, cabins tired , buffet restaurants look like a school canteen no evidence of any ongoing maintenance. On good side main dinnerquality very good in contrast to the buffet which has poor selection, under and overcooked mains, pastries made by 6 year olds, smoothies without any taste, over crowded . P&O have been costcutting everywhere and it shows , no cruise director or ship ...

This was my first cruise with P and O and I had high expectations. Sadly they were not delivered; the ships decor was in places “tired” although some of the bars , such as Adersons and the Crows Nest were very comfortable and restful. This was my third cruise this year and I was surprised to find issues re. staff shortages. Not all of the speciality restaurants were open, there was no turn down ...

Decent ship spoiled by various issues, and in particular cleanliness.

Review for Ventura to Europe - All

Well that is us ashore and making our way home from Ventura. We had an amazing holiday, met great people, and stunning port calls. Value for money was excellent but where do you start with Ventura? She is clearly a Marmite ship with many loyal followers which is good, however and for us we was not impressed at all. Cleanliness is well well below acceptable standards never mind what you expect ...

Ok everyone knows the cruise ships, but this is a list of cutbacks my wife and I found after two years not cruising because of covid. P&O take note. Remember this is for Iona, other ships could be different. In The Cabin, No more little sweets, No conditioner for hair, No port info, Postcard, Writing paper, No turn down service at night, No little chocolates. Room service no ...

In need of a break at short notice repeating an itinerary that we have travelled before. First time on Iona and unfortunately the last. Embarkation was good. Booked on a balcony guarantee basis and were given deck 8 promenade the downside being it has a permanent flow of walkers/joggers and some very nosey people who jump up to look into your cabin. Also a greater problem is the deck is full of ...
