First 2 Days were rough, so in Buffett Restaurants (Venezia & Verona) it was very busy at most times as passenger tended to stay sat down after having completed their meals thereby taking up space required by other passengers requiring seating to partake of their meals. Noticed that as the weather was not so good so that passengers had nowhere else to go, apart back to their cabins as deck seating was not recommended!! Walking around the ship was not easy due to bad conditions. Not really any apologies from P & O (not their fault about the weather) but perhaps some films could have been put on to keep passengers occupied. Announcements on deck or communal areas were sometimes difficult to understand. If you were in your cabin at the time on an announcement by the time you turned to the TV channel to hear, the announcement was usually over. Dress code -: Is always strictly adhered to , so you tended to feel out of place at times if you are not similarly attired (i.e.in other places – such as the Playhouse Theatre on an evening for example)  

1st time Cruiser - But possibly not again (on P & O anyway)

Cabin Review

Suite with Balcony
Cabin AB R326
Cabin (326 - Riviera Deck - 14)Very good service by Cabin staff especially 'Sagar ' (Steward)No problems with requests.Cabin always clean and tidy on returns and milk/coffee/tea/sugar etc. replenished.Note: Cabin was EXTREMELY noisy from Lido deck above as passengers moved table & chairs around constantly and staff appeared to relocate them after hours (until 1am!) and early morning (7am!)Because of this we asked to be re-located to another similar cabin, but on a lower deck. This request was accepted and we continued our Cruise on Barbados Deck - Rm.339Cabin (339 - Barbados Deck - 11) Not so good service and not so friendly as Cabin staff on R Deck,although no problems with requests and Cabin always clean and tidy on returns and milk/coffee/tea/sugar etc. replenished.Unfortunately I did have to ask the Steward (Steveley) at one point to keep the noise down (talking continuously to other staff outside our cabin) at 9pm as we were trying to get some rest.
