    P & O Alcohol Policy

    That is my understanding you can still BYO and pay corkage. It would have to be a high end wine to make it viable. Perhaps a good Champagne.

    I have never said that I would be happy. However I would not have put up with the situation for so long. I think you have misunderstood as the OP said the first time had been well dealt with. You are also also missing the point that this is a rare occurrence and that the OP was very unlucky to have it happen twice. once again all ships of all lines have the same problems because of the toilet system they have to use.

    I would like to think that any better service I receive is down to the respect I have for the staff and the way I interact with them. Not any perceived status which in reality is no different to anyone else.

    Well done John missing the point again. You have no proof I got any special service. I cannot see anyone would. It would be nice though, can you arrange it.

    You have proof of this? Or are you just being negitive.

    Well that sounds as good a result as we had with P&O on Ventura. Everything was done to fix our problem and although not perfect, as they needed a part, we were however able to enjoy our cruise and the Customer services manager was excellent. Our sweetener was very nice as well, spread over a couple of cruises.

    Oriana Walking on deck

    Yes. The widest deck in the fleet.

    P & O Alcohol Policy

    No that is not correct. I have not seen anything official but I think it is for all cruises. Certainly we have had it on a 7 night one.

    P & O Alcohol Policy

    Yes they do and have issued a new price list only this Aug/Sep. This is from Britannia but it is the same on all ships. Dai

    Which can only happen if that suite is available. You were lucky. Very few ships sail with their best cabins empty. One wonders why the toilet had gone 6 month without being repaired. Did all the previous cruisers using the cabin get an upgrade to a suite? how can that work if the problem was in a suite to start with. All cruise lines have problems all cruise lines deal with them in a way that does not satisfy the customer.

    Of course if you read reports on a different forum. One which attracts far more posts the vast majority are very positive about P&O and often describe customer service as excellent. On the other hand if you read forums about other cruise lines you will find complaints about their customer service. No line has perfect customer service.

    will the price drop

    Its called supply and demand. If the price now is very high then the cruise is very full. This always happens when a cruise is over subscribed. Not sure why a cruise company should have to justify its prices if you don’t like the price you don’t pay.

    Good try John but put your wooden spoon away.

    We have never had a problem with any customer service. Mainly because like many others we have never used them apart from the one mentioned when we had the problem resolved on board.

    We have to wait until March and then October and of course January. All on Ventura. Just paid the balance on the first one a back to back, could not resist a look at current prices. WOW turn up now and we would have to pay double what we have just paid. Early booking strikes again.
