Hi. We've been allocated a GB grade cabin. I know this is a balcony cabin but does anyone know if this is a good or not do good grade cabin?

Hi. We are going on a seacation cruise soon and were thinking of purchasing the ultimate drinks package. Does anyone know if when asking for a gin and tonic for example we could ask for two 50ml gins as the price is under £6,95 each and then a separate tonic?

Hi. We have just booked Iona for the 4th September. Wanted a delux balcony but none left so have booked a standard balcony. Does anyone know if the standard comes with a sofa or is the cabin too small?

Would appreciate some advise. We are sailing on Ventura soon and have freedom dining. After an unpleasant experience on sharing a table a few years ago, we would like to dine on a table for two whenever possible. Any advise on the best time to go to dinner?

Hi. We have been given a time of 1.30 for embarkation for our cruise but are booked into a hotel the night before and have to check out by 11a.m, with only a 10 minute taxi ride to the port. Can anyone tell me if it is okay to go direct to the embarkation lounge and wait?

Hoping to book a last minute cruise on the Ventura. Have been offered inside near the aft of the shipA725 or obstructed ocean view, midship E220. Other than price difference would there be many other benefits of obstructed view, mid ship?

Have not booked a cruise with p& o since they altered thier web site.
Trying to book a select price inside cabin but asking for payment before I can choose freedom dining and double bed. Does anyone know if this option will come later?

Looking to book Discovery 2 for July but they only have inside cabins available. Can anyone tell me of their experiences with inside cabins, good and bad?

Thinking of booking Discovery 2 for 13th July. I like quiet places to sit in the sun. Does anyone know if this ship has plenty of outside space or if it is cramped
like some ships?

Hi. Have recently booked this cabin for a canary island cruise. I know it is obstructed but has anyone stayed in this cabin who could advise me how obstructed?

We are thinking of using the p&o coach transfer to southampton instead of as in the past driven there. Has anyone had any experience using the coach? Is it any good? We would be travelling from Cardiff.

More to ask
Could anyone advise me their experience regarding coach transer to Southampton. In the past we have driven and parked but thought it might be more relaxing to travel by coach. We will be travelling from Cardiff, would it take a lot longer

Many thanks to everyone who replied to my posting concerning recent reviews. Nearly all were positive and re-assuring and I am now back to 'looking forward to my cruise holiday' mode. One more question, we are cruising to the Baltics, will we be able to purchase items from the Duty Free Shop in Southamton to take on board with us?

Many thanks for all your positive feedback from my concerns over the Arcadia review. I am now back in 'looking forward to my cruise holiday' mood thanks to all of you and will let you know how it went on return

Hope someone can re-assure us. Will be cruising on Arcadia to Baltics towards end of July but have become very anxious after reading recent reviews especially one posted in the last few days!!! ' more like a nursing home,' uncouth, drunken, beer swilling obese people,' 'decks marred by a permafog of cigarette smoke'. We have not been on a P& O cruise before so did not know what to expect but to read this has made us think of cancelling although we will lose the cost. A few reviews posted earlier weren't wonderful but no too bad.
