Chose cruise for destination,boarded at 1.30pm left dock 14 hrs late after captain said too windy to leave,missed two ports one because we left late second because of medical emergency ,on the way back another medical emergency so captain said we will not be docking at Portside we will dock at the grain wharf and bus it to Portside, when speaking to workers at Portside they said they could not understand that has ships had come up the river in worst conditions than that.whilst at kite a the captain said seas to rough will not be tendering today so will miss port, again been sailing quite a while now have seen it a lot worse conditions and still use the tenders.whist at kirrawena only used two tenders and as soon as people got off they started to return in a short while the Queue was massive people had to wait in the really hot weather terrible no shade available. No cultural show as the people there didn’t know we were coming in that day, no one from p&o told them about itinerary change.The entertainment on the ship was way below expectation,food very poor, needless to say we and plenty more people on this cruise all said never again with p&o.

Very disappointed
