Iona one week sailing cruise
Christine Matthews | October 4, 2021 | P&O Cruises | Iona
Iona is a beautiful ship and tastefully decorated. She is very large and many people found it difficult to find their way around. We were on deck 11 and soon realised the best thing to do was go down to deck 7 where you can walk right through, as soon as find where to go get on another lift and go there. Our cruise was only half full due to distancing but we both felt we would not go on a full ship! Booking for everything was a real problem as there were six in our party and nowhere could accommodate us as it was set up in couples. Later in the week we were told to come at our preferred time and they would arrange a table! Not enough fully trained staff many did not seem to realise we were, in fact, their customers! Food although very good was mostly luke warm. The Quays fish and chip venue was the only place we got hot food. Cold porridge is not good. Cabins were lovely but tight and not enough storage but our balcony was one of the few three times bigger ones to other cabins – a bonus! We enjoyed our break but Iona is not for us.
Be prepared to manage your expectations.
