Our long awaited cruise to see Northern Lights after 3yrs & 2 cancelled cruises. We were happy to be back aboard & very glad we decided to treat ourselves to a mini-suite. It made the return all worth while. Staff on board very happy & helpful, apart from Sindhu being closed, we found the cruise enjoyable.We managed to get a booking in Ocean Grill, but have to say, our experience was far from enjoyable. We found only 1 menu was available all cruise, limited choice on it & no salad choice. Plus it is only running50% capacity so has lost any chance of Ambience. We had a 2nd night booked there,but decided to cancel that & had a much better celebration meal in MDR. We did manage to see the Northern lights out on a tour from Narvik, but as it was raining for most of our visit it was really lucky we saw them briefly with a gap in the clouds, in the middle of nowhere in Sweden on the side of a road. Not sure we will rush to book another cruise until P & O get back to full service on ships post covid.
Be prepared to manage your expectations.
