Amsterdam Bruges and Guernsey 30 August 2019
Chris Thompson | September 23, 2019 | P&O Cruises | Ventura
Not cruised with P and O before, so was favourably impressed, a few issues but overall value for money. We thought that most of the decor on board was very nice. Balcony cabin pleasant slightly old fashioned, but well serviced by cabin staff. Alcohol prices were very reasonable, good choice and good service, bars and theatre.
Buffet areas not good, certainly a step down from other cruise lines. The buffet station was cramped, very jostly, buffet okay, small choice compared with other ships. Main dining room very nice, food pretty good, service excellent, wine packages good value.
Evening entertainment in the theatre was very good, the ship theatre company were some of the best singers and dancers we have seen, brilliant shows.
There were parts of the ship that were not my cup of tea, enclosed pool areas etc, but did not spoil my voyage.
Kids on this ship seemed well behaved.
It was was a reasonably cheap trip and to be fair you did get what you paid for. Personally we prefer something a little a bit more up market, but P&O did not let us down. Yes issues with Amsterdam being an hour by bus, but hey ho!
We may use P&O again.
