Great cruise even in bad weather
By Wes Plummer on 15 January 2019
P&O Cruises | Arcadia Reviews

Heavy seas both outbound and home. Entertainment good but felt that Emma Alexander did not have the full support of her crew. Our major disappoint was that the Christmas and New Year cruises have been discontinued. There were a considerable number of passengers that we had met over the last 5 years who were equally upset. Do P and O want the custom of our age groups or not?

Never again
By Suzanne Haigh on 14 January 2019
P&O Cruises | Oriana Reviews

I have cruised 6 times with P&O. 3rd day I started with a horrendous cold. We could not turn the air con off. I reported a few times to deal with it. I was given a fan to put in the cabin. Don’t know how that was suppose to help. Everywhere you went on around the ship the air con was on full blast especially in the dining room. Both I and husband got chest...

Christmas in the Canaries
By William Norman on 14 January 2019
P&O Cruises | Oriana Reviews

Absolutely fabulous, the ship was beautifully decorated for Christmas. Wonderful food and a great choice. The staff could not have been more helpful and ever so polite. Be sorry to see Oriana leaving the P&O fleet.

Great holiday
By James Dean on 14 January 2019
P&O Cruises | Britannia Reviews

We have cruised many times and to be fair have been avoiding the Britannia because of its size. And I am so pleased to say our worry was ill-founded. The ship and crew were great. A very nice and relaxing 14 days. We will be arranging to return.

Best ever Christmas
By Mrs V Flower on 14 January 2019
P&O Cruises | Ventura Reviews

Best Christmas we have ever had, everything was perfect, food staff and decor of the ship, only disappointment was the entertainment wasn’t up to the normal P O standard, but saying that the Headliners were excellent as usual.

A memorable trip
By Linda Milson on 14 January 2019
P&O Cruises | Arcadia Reviews

Well maintained ship with beautiful Xmas decorations! Comfortable cabin albeit a bit small. Excellent steward, Joaquim on Sun deck. Most staff very friendly and efficient especially in the bars. Entertainment staff a bit disappointing. They are young 20 or 30 somethings and often were not tolerant of us older passengers. They huffed and puffed if you asked them to repeat something. Not all were like this but Ebony needs to watch her manner! Did not...

Christmas and New Year
By Moira Findlay on 14 January 2019
P&O Cruises | Oriana Reviews

Although a lot of people we spoke to on this cruise loved the ship it was not the one for us. There was a lack of toilet facilities for the disabled in the public areas – there being nothing on Deck 12 for the Conservatory Buffet venue and also on other decks as well. We felt that it was just too small a ship for us – although for most of the people on board...

Overall
By Mr Geoff and Mrs Carole Cronk on 14 January 2019
P&O Cruises | Oriana Reviews

We have always considered Oriana our favourite cruise ship and are sorry to hear the Chinese have bought her. Our Xmas cruise on her was one of the best we have done except that the fireworks on Tenerife were poor. The evening entertainment was excellent. The Headliners and the 4 violinists were superb. We are on Ventura on June 16th and hope they are on again.

Xmas/New Year 2018/19
By Anthony Cathcart on 14 January 2019
P&O Cruises | Oriana Reviews

The dining service left a little to be desired, quite a few sullen waiters, the bars were much more friendly. The cabin steward was excellent, nothing too much trouble. An adult only ship, which at the time of year ( Xmas ) we would not want to go on again, it was somewhat like a Hospital ship. Overall good value as with all P&O cruises, an incorrect choice on our part

Great Christmas Cruise
By Jill and Alan Haigh on 14 January 2019
P&O Cruises | Oriana Reviews

After a very comfortable coach journey by Eavesway we boarded a very well decorated Oriana and were delighted with the cruise to the Canaries. Service and food were great. We were a little disappointed with the entertainment, but the Headliners were the best we have ever seen. Trips from the ship were good especially the Whale watching and the weather was very good. There was a problem with the ship losing power for 4 hours...

Fabulous Christmas cruise
By Lynda Jones on 14 January 2019
P&O Cruises | Britannia Reviews

First holiday ever at Christmas. Britannia got it absolutely right and made our Christmas wonderful. Staff were attentive and service was excellent. Food was delicious, especially on Christmas day. A good mix of ages on board from very young to oldish but lovely adult only pool and sun terrace. Entertainment was generally good with a variety of venues and bars. The cabin was great and the steward was always available if needed. Have cruised numerous...

New year cruise
By Susan Ingersoll on 11 January 2019
P&O Cruises | Oceana Reviews

This was our 5th New year cruise with friends and family. Previous ones have been exceptional so we were all looking forward to it. However, although the ship was beautifully decorated there was very little festive atmosphere. The waiters at the table never smiled, service was very slow, they seemed to have far too many tables to serve. Service in the bars was also slow. The biggest disappointment was New Year’s Eve. At 11.30 dancing...

New Year short cruise
By Mrs S Saunders on 11 January 2019
P&O Cruises | Oceana Reviews

An experiment for us to cruise over New Year. Oceana looked lovely – really pretty. Went back to fixed dining for a change – the service was very slow indeed. We were too late to get seats in the Theatre on several of the five evenings and only managed once by missing out coffee. The wine waiter was also appallingly slow. Wine, when you have finished your main course, is just not on. The entertainment...

Overall
By Patricia Wiseman on 10 January 2019
P&O Cruises | Azura Reviews

Whilst the cleanliness, condition and comfort of the cabin were good, I was extremely disappointed with the entertainment generally. The evening entertainment, apart from A Tribute to Tina Turner and Jimmy James was of a very low standard. Around the two main pool areas, excluding the adult pool, the entertainment, music etc. felt like we were at Butlins on sea. This whole experience has been very discouraging.

Christmas 2018
By Brenda Bateman on 07 January 2019
P&O Cruises | Oceana Reviews

Once again the Oceana was beautifully decorated and the food very good. Disappointed with entertainment this cruise, felt that apart from the Headliners, other evening entertainment was poor. On an excursion in Lisbon, we had two stops of one hour which was not adequate time to see anything, it was a waste of our time and money. On a more cheerful note, the dance teachers, Stuart & Jane, were extremely friendly and provided a very...

Magical cruise
By J Shaw on 07 January 2019
P&O Cruises | Ventura Reviews

We have just returned from Ventura’s Christmas and New Year cruise to The Canaries and Madiera together with Lisbon. It was wow from the minute we stepped on board. With the ice rink in the Atrium. The decorations were very good. The staff right from the Captain to the cabin staff were excellent. The food overall was greatly improved to what was served on other ships. The entertainment was good as usual. The only down...

Tatty decor.
By m.simms on 07 January 2019
P&O Cruises | Aurora Reviews

The bathroom was tired and old with the coating on the shower and sink peeling off. We thought the shower floor had mould but it was the top plastic coating peeling off. I know the ship is due for an update soon. Also, we couldn’t get into the jacuzzis as the children were ALWAYS in them, I don’t want to sit in water kids have been in. It was a Xmas cruise and although I...

Christmas Caribbean Cruise A833A
By Karl Menzies on 07 January 2019
P&O Cruises | Azura Reviews

Overall the cruise itself was a good one, but P&O standards are certainly changing, in fact some marked changes since we cruised on Azura in April. Could there be an initiative from Carnival to market/rebrand P&O for a different ‘Customer’ base.? Cunard certainly continue to position themselves as ‘Premium’, and succeed! The entertainment choice is not as professional as previous cruises and the checking of details in Horizon leaves a lot to be desired. (Last...

Xmas in the Caribbean
By Sue Baker on 07 January 2019
P&O Cruises | Azura Reviews

Just returned from a lovely Christmas cruise in the Caribbean on Azura. Everything just as expected. The ship, although looking tired, is still lovely, crew friendly and helpful, and everything we needed on board. The only thing that spoiled it was the group of loud and argumentative passengers who apparently were a wedding party. We understand that they were actually ejected off the ship after many complaints and a fight. Luckily we saw nothing of...
