Terrible-Royal Caribbean International | Navigator of the Seas Reviews

The most dreadful cruise I have ever been on stabilizer broke in the middle of the Bay of Biscay ship took on water listing badly crew waste deep in water in their life jackets managed to get into Vigo safely. Captain had the audacity to say a minor problem!

Needless to say, has put me off cruising for life.

FantasticP&O Cruises | Azura Reviews

I was a little concerned about a transatlantic cruise at this time of year but no problem at all. It rained in the Azores but that can’t be helped. The Caribbean was fantastic and my highlight was the helicopter trip in Antigua. Also loved St Maarten. The ship was excellent as were all the staff. Couldn’t fault it and am considering the reverse cruise in March.

Western Med from BarcelonaNorwegian Cruise Line | Norwegian Epic Reviews

A very enjoyable 7 day cruise – our first ever cruise experience. Freestyle cruising suits us as we don’t like dressing up and like to eat when we want without sitting times. All ports of call were interesting including Pisa, Florence, Cannes and Palma. Ship is amazing, food very good, entertainment good and overall service excellent. It was shame the weather cancelled our stop in Naples to see So…

Good value for money-Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines | Balmoral Reviews

This was our first cruise with Fred Olsen. We had a premier suite which was really lovely. Decor throughout was excellent. Food overall was good but only ever 2 starter choices! Also if you opted to go to the Palms cafe for dinner, the food was very limited and often dried up or lukewarm. The cafe is way too small for the guests. People were bumping into one another everywhere and there was often …

First fly cruiseCunard Line | Queen Victoria Reviews

This was our first fly cruise and was a bit on edge about it. We had no need to worry as Cunard were first class. We flew from Manchester airport on a chartered jet operated by Jet 2. They had a dedicated check-in just for us and Jet 2 staff were there to make our passage through with ease. Landed in Rome to be met by Cunard staff who took our cases from us only to see them again in our stateroom,…

Return visit to our favorite shipP&O Cruises | Aurora Reviews

Well we were last on Aurora 2011 .. and last on P&O in 2016. Since 2011 Aurora has had a refit and seems they were ready for the Adults only years as we noticed mostly tables for two now in the Horizon Resturant (Self-serve) Raffle also seems to have a different layout with more tables for two. So the ship was looking good.

We were in a balcony cabin on A deck so being Oct the sheltered balcony is…

Lovely Itinerary.P&O Cruises | Britannia Reviews

Most enjoyable cruise.

We were in A 203, cabin, the only snag was above us, a little noisy sometimes late at night.

Sadly we did not have much to do with cabin steward, usually all so friendly on other cruises.

Captain was excellent although only saw him once, always keeping his passengers, informed, even at 2 am!!! When a small fire in the kitchen!

All staff were so friendly & helpful.

Med cruiseP&O Cruises | Britannia Reviews

Fantastic cruise on a fantastic ship. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff to do even fixing a puncture on our wheelchair free of charge. Our second time on Britannia and won’t be the last. Big thanks to Poppy at Bolsover again for getting us a perfect cabin at a great price.

Cruise To The CanariesP&O Cruises | Aurora Reviews

All of the crew were very friendly and efficient. I certainly would travel again on this ship if the destinations were right and the price. Whilst on board we checked on a future cruise which was for a period of 17 days, four days longer than the one we have just come back from. But for the same room (Deluxe Balcony) and the same period of time but one year ahead, the cost was going to be two and …

19 night cruise on OrianaP&O Cruises | Oriana Reviews

Very good cruise, P&O staff attentive and always helpful, food very good. Have done many cruises in the past but this time due to a mobility problem hired a wheelchair – proved no problem to getting out and about.

On the whole entertainment very good with one or two exceptions.

The Croatian and Montenegro ports of cruise were excellent.

Such a shame that this ship is to be sold-P&O Cruises | Oriana Reviews

We have just returned from a cruise around the Adriatic aboard the Oriana, our first trip on this ship for over ten years. It has been refurbished recently and some layouts have been improved. I still question the ‘flow’ or lack of it, in the Conservatory, the buffet restaurant, which to me is impractical and leads to confusion and queues at popular times. Entertainment venues, like the theatre an…

Croatia and MontenegroP&O Cruises | Oriana Reviews

19 nights primarily to the Adriatic provided us with some superb ports but particularly Zadar and Kotor…these should be added to everyone’s must-see places. We enjoyed excellent service from all the staff and P&O is difficult to beat on price..the ship is to be sold next year which is a shame but the engine noise at the back of the ship makes you feel it is time for her to go. We are not happy wit…

Adriatic cruise 5th OctP&O Cruises | Oriana Reviews

Just returned from a lovely Adriatic cruise. The ship is showing its age but nevertheless is very comfortable – service as always is very good and the cabin was very roomy (outside). Entertainment spot on!! and we were happy with all the restaurants and (in our tier) the extra benefits. Slightly let down by continual noise and vibration which came from the gym just above our cabin. This was repor…

AmazingCunard Line | Queen Victoria Reviews

If you prefer the peaceful way of cruising and the formal way of cruising you have to go Cunard. The way everybody dresses for evening is very gratifying and the way the Restaurant staff keep this is impeccable not one person got into the restaurant in jeans or without a jacket(for men). It is a real pleasure to cruise with Cunard, having done 33 cruises now can you tell how delighted we are. Have…

A cruise around the Iberian Peninsula-P&O Cruises | Ventura Reviews

Excellent food and service but would not choose this ship again,preferring Arcadia,Aurora and Oriana. We found the Library too small and poorly stocked for the size of ship also the promenade deck was too narrow and difficult to get around due to the steps at the bow. In addition the whole of the Starboard side of the Prom deck was designated for smoking which meant that when the sun was on that s…

An excellent Cruise BUT...............-Princess Cruises | Sapphire Princess Reviews

We left Southampton on time and arrived in our first port Vigo to mixed weather – we did not book any Princess tours/excursions as they were so expensive – our second port of call was supposed to be Madeira but because of Hurricane Leslie we had to miss this port and go directly to our third port Arrecife; We arrived at about 12noon on Saturday but found the local shops all closed at about 5pm. We…

Excellent cruise.Princess Cruises | Sapphire Princess Reviews

My husband myself and 2 friends arrived back from the Canaries cruise on 21st October. We enjoyed every minute aboard. The crew were very attentive and nothing was too much trouble. The food was excellent with plenty of choices at every mealtime. We missed going to Madeira due to the threat of hurricane Lesley but we had 2 days in Lanzarote to compensate. We were able to travel further afield than…

Great cruise with familyP&O Cruises | Ventura Reviews

Went on a 12-night cruise in October we have been on this ship before so had an idea where things were. We had freedom dining but had the same table for 10 nights with the same waiters who were fantastic. The cabin stewards were very helpful nothing too much trouble. The shows were busy at times but not a problem always got a seat.

All the staff were fantastic and P&O should be proud of this. Book…

Drinks-Cunard Line | Queen Elizabeth Reviews

Queen Elizabeth 1st October 2018 15 nights canaries, great cruise, food, service, ports.

Had on board spends luckily, as drinks prices plus 15% gratuities each time you buy drinks were frightening.

Think I am right in saying that, goods on ships at sea are duty-free, so Cunard has the wrong policy in overcharging, the range of goods in retail shops was unattractive and overpriced.

All the cruise c…

More than we ever dreamed possibleAPT Cruising | AmaLotus

We had been looking at organising our own tour of Vietnam and Cambodia because, we were told on TripAdvisor, it was easy to do. Then we saw the itinerary of the APT 23 day tour of Vietnam and Cambodia. It included everything we hoped to see and much more. Better still it was 5 star all the way. However, there was no way we could have imagined how well organised an APT tour is.

What a great cruise.P&O Cruises | Azura Reviews

I had a great cruise. I’ve cruised a fair bit but this was the first as a solo passenger as my partner has passed on. My cabin was very comfortable and well looked after.

All the staff were great and the Captain friendly. Food fantastic. Excursions very good. Just one thing. Please LOWER the single supplement, it’s way to high.

My husband and I had a cruise from 3rd-20th October to the Mediterranean. This was our second time on Arcadia ( tenth cruise in total) and the refurbishment had been done very tastefully. The service, food and entertainment were all excellent. We enjoyed most ports of call, only buying shore excursions in Toulon and Barcelona. We were restricted with the cabin we could choose because my husband’s …

Excellent CruiseP&O Cruises | Ventura Reviews

Sailed on Ventura on 8th October 2018. Apart from the MDR (freedom dining) being somewhat chaotic on the first evening (the very long wait between courses and wine arriving with dessert), we couldn’t fault this cruise – Food, Service and ship all excellent. Yes, one or two of the entertainment acts were not to our taste but always found something of interest for us. Can’t wait for our next trip. …

Thoroughly enjoyed our second cruise aboard Balmoral. This is a happy friendly ship with brilliant crew. We were not too impressed with Gothenburg but enjoyed our visits to Copenhagen, Tallin, Helsinki, St. Petersburg and Oslo. St. Petersburg was very busy so I can imagine that it is a nightmare to visit in the summer months. are some amazing cathedrals and waterways in St.Peterburg and it is wort…

  • “…Food in Horizon Court cold, lots of people complained nothing improved. Service on Lido deck was erratic, staff appeared to be unmotivated, some times rude, and it appeared that customers were an inconvenience. Plastic breakers need renewing often cracked/chipped Service in Dinning room very slow and food often cold, not enough staff…”

    Totally agree!

  • We sailed on the Ventura 26 August to Vigo, Lisbon, Oporto and St.Peter Port which was an excellent itinerary for a seven night cruise and Ventura being our favoutite P&O cruise ship. The entertainment was excellent in all areas especially Joe McElderry. The food and our waiters in the Saffron Restaurant were very good and so was our cabin steward but the buffet breakfast and lunch was poor. We have been on Ventura many times so we were able to compare. I think we shall stick to the American ships in future, being Royal Caribbean and Celebrity as the food and service appears to be much better.
