Review for Ventura to Caribbean - Southern

2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

We chose this ship and P&O because Cunard did not sail at the time we wanted. It was our first time to the Caribbean and coincided with our 40th Anniversary. We had not expected Ventura to rival Queen Elizabeth and chose a Superior Deluxe Balcony cabin for the extra room and facilities indicated. In this respect Ventura provided all we asked for with a good walk-in clothes space and a ...

For a large new ship it was such a let down

We were really looking forward to this cruise as it was our first with P&O (although we have been with Princess, Carnival, Disney, Royal Caribbean and Celebrity before) and with this being new and large we thought the ship, entertainment and service would be excellent - what a let down ! The Ship - the layout and feel of the ship feels strange and the main public areas i.e. lido deck and ...

This is primarily a review of the Britannia.....P&O's latest and largest cruise ship. Personally I think they missed a few opportunities when designing this vessel and it just doesn't compare to other P&O or most American ships. Firstly, the cruise, food and staff were fine. It was just the ship that didn't live up to expectations - no 'wow' factor. Here are the negatives: 1. No staircase in ...

We chose this cruise because of the direct flights to Barbados with no overnight hotel in, say, Miami as we have had before. The ship was lovely, the decor understated and the food was excellent. We managed to find some wonderful waiters, Gajendra and Elvis as well as Irene in the Sindhu bar area. Unfortunately many of the staff were not as friendly as we are used to and several waiters in the ...

P & O were brilliant in sitting their singleton guests and my fear of feeling a bit surplus was overcome by the grace and friendliness of the restaurant staff.. and my very lovely fellow diners. Each evening we grouped round our table to exchange stories and sometimes pictures of the day. The others were all very much more experienced than I but at no time did I meet anyone who wished to crow ...

We chose this cruise having been on a similar cruise the year before. P&O isn't our favourite cruise line but we like the 14 day Southern Caribbean itineraries, the covenience of flying from Birmingham, the variety of entertainment and the reasonable drinks prices! We're not too keen on the food except breakfast and don't like the limited hours and selection for lunch and the fact that the ...

I've been on over 20 cruises and have never had such a bad dining experience as on the Britannia. Waiting on staff inexperienced, paying no attention to what was needed at the table, constantly asking them to fill up your water glass. First week, left the food constantly in the Meridian dining room and not one waiter asked what was wrong with it or asked if we would like something else. Not much ...

Some notes on what we did - I hope my ramblings and informative. All prices quoted in $US or £. Summary - we enjoyed the Azura itinerary - the weather was good and generally the food was nice. We found the service on board excellent. The flights and transfers were all fine, although Barbados airport has always been awful and it's not improved over time. We did find the ship busy at times. ...

Where do I start? A good holiday, the Britannia has many good points, but has several points needing attention urgently. One of the things we like to do is, get up early as we are coming into port, take those lovely sunrise pictures, this is impossible on the Britannia, you simply cant get to the front of the ship, no proper promenade or access to the front. This ship is all about ...
