I have been wanting to see London, and also Norway (The Fiords) for quite awhile. I was going to do a land tour, but since my health is now working against me sometimes, I realize that I need to slow down (74ys), and a widower on top of ... Read more

Overall the ship was excellent value and the menus were fine dining. I never experienced one poor meal. The only negative I can speak of is that solo travellers are not catered for at meal times ie constantly asking for a large table with ... Read more

This was my 13th. cruise and my 4th. (in a row) with P&O. I travelled on Ventura in 2015 and all was well-but I'm sad to say the ship now needs some serious restoration. As with my other reviews on this site, I'll split this up into ... Read more

P&O Cruise Ref: X620. If I could give this ship 0/5 for a review I would, but as I can't I'll have to rate it as 1/5. The ship was due to go into port for a re-fit straight after this cruise & to be honest I wouldn't bother ... Read more

As a first time single traveller and first time with P&O I was understandably nervous about this cruise. First impressions were I disliked Britannia, however as the days went by I got to like the intamacy of the ship, so many places to ... Read more

Our first time on a cruise, so we were apprehensive about it but was impressed from start to finish. We boarded the plane at Cardiff with minimum fuss & next saw our cases at our cabin door. Embarkation to the ship was effortless (as ... Read more

We chose this as it was available! We thought P and O was a reputable company. The Oceana itself is very tired, and desperately in need of upgrading and modernising. Our first impression on embarking showed it to be dark and old ... Read more

The booking, cruise personaliser, flights and transfers we're very well organised, we we're impressed, especially being on a bonded flight. The only downside was our suitcases didnt arrive to our cabin until about 5.00pm but we had the ... Read more

This was a first 'taster' cruise with P&O to help me decide whether to book a longer cruise with them next year and also to find out how they compared with the likes of Celebrity, Fred Olsen and Holland America. I'm sorry to say ... Read more

I chose this 2 night cruise because I wanted to try a different cruise line other than my usual NCL. Big mistake! Whilst the ship was large it was so badly designed it was very difficult to get around. There are 4 pools on board, oasis at ... Read more

This was my second cruise on Ventura as a single passenger. I was a little apprehensive going back as I had such a wonderful time last year but I need not have worried it was just the same and more. From my cabin steward to the bar ... Read more

12th P&O cruise in 18 months (my last!!). Oceana is being allowed to "rot" in the Med with rust everywhere. The rusting balconies are well documented. The hull is a disgrace with rust along just about every weld line. Try ... Read more

I'd read the reviews before I left and so knew what to expect. I wasn't surprised, just saddened really. The ship seems to have sacrificed the open areas, which you find on other ships, for the sake of adding extra cabins. Everything is ... Read more

Oceana to Madeira and the Canaries: great itinerary and ports, usual friendly service and good food. Some of the most experienced staff were taken to feed the monster Britannia, as we were the only ship in Southampton at the same time as ... Read more

I had a fabulous time as a single traveller on board Azura. I found all staff to be friendly and helpful. I think if you are polite and well mannered and treat them how you would expect to be treated then that's what you get. I found ... Read more

I decide to go on Azura because I thought it would be a good choice as I was travelling by myself and the ship looked really nice. I was not disapointed - there is nothing not to like about this ship. It is big so it takes a little while ... Read more

As we approached Ventura after the long but comfortable flight from London Gatwick Airport to Barbados airport, the first view of the ship gave the impression of a multistory block of flats, but this view was soon to change after we ... Read more
