1st and Last time with P&O

Review for a Baltic Sea Cruise on Ventura

Our 1st P&O cruise and possibly our only one. Ship overall is OK in terms of design and features, very tatty though in places and felt quite neglected. Only one way to describe the food, Awful, to the point we had to meet and complain with the head of department. Food in MDR was inedible and service was pretty poor too. We left after the main course on first night and didn't return as ...

We booked this cruise pre pandemic and waited 2 years for it. We did not believe it would go ahead until the day before departure as everything was so uncertain. I am so glad we did not move it again as we had a wonderful time. One port was altered due to Germany shutting down but we were very happy with the replacement port of Stavanger, Norway. The other port visited was Zeebrugge where we took ...

My experience on P and O cruises was a first however it sure will be my last. The buffet food is the same each night and is of a low standard. The entertainment onboard was next to none and they had an awful comedian who was on twice a night and on, on more than one night. The drinks package is completely pointless unless you become friendly with the bar staff or walk from bar to bar as theres a ...

Ventura to the Fjords

Review for a Norwegian Fjords Cruise on Ventura

We wanted to go on this particular cruise as we have heard nothing but great reviews about the Fjords and we have sailed on the Ventura before. We drove down to Southampton from North Wales and this was probably the best trip down we have had. There weren't any hold ups and after reading on CC that parking and portering had changed, we were pleasantly surprised that it was exactly how it was ...

Lots of things to do gym ...

Chose this cruise for convenience of date to fit in with our Golden Wedding anniversary celebrations, As such we booked the Strathaird Suite C751 Boarding and welcome buffet absolutely first class plus. Our suitcase was waiting at the cabin door as expected. We entered the suite, first impression , dull drab and old looking furnishings looking very tired!! Gosh what have we done? ...

We chose this due price and itinerary as we got a deal. We were very reticent about booking on P&O again after a previous trip on Britannia which was awful and we did not like the ship at all, other than the cabin. So, we were not really expecting much of this trip but it was an itinerary we had not done, at a good price which we booked very late. Well, on this occasion P&O delivered on all ...

OK, I admit, we didn't have very high expectations of the cruise but it turned out to be an amazing holiday. That's mainly because the Norwegian fjords are breathtaking. Some pictures attached to show you that a huge ship like Ventura is dwarfed by the amazing scenery. In wow order : Olden - mindblowingly pretty, we just wandered around the town for a few hours rather than doing an ...

What Has Happened To P&O?

Some background detail first of all. P&O has been our cruise company of choice but I have been trying other cruise lines to review for my travel blog. This cruise was a long awaited return, after just over a year away from P&O Embarkation was relatively smooth apart from the appallingly managaged car parking which resulted in a half hour wait to drop off the car. Although strictly ...
