A great first cruise on a wonderful ship with amazing staff and crew. The food was excellent with outstanding choice and quality. We could not find a single fault except, perhaps, the weather, But if you go on a cruise in the north sea at this time of year and don't expect some rough seas then you a crazy. We sailed through a force 10 gale with great ease and the captain found us a nice calm anchorage for Christmas day. Due to the storm we were unable to get to Amsterdam so an extra port of call was added, Le Herve turned out to be a nice replacement. One thing that did annoy us a little was...Other passengers moaning about anything they could think of, I'm sure P&O would love to hear about your little problems but we're having a great time and DID'NT want to hear them. (Who the hell decides to take a shower in the middle of a force 10 gale, slips and them blames the captain!!!)
