The outside cabins on P deck are very nice with plenty of light; I had one for sole use a few years ago (upgraded from a single) and really liked it. They are a slightly higher grade so may be closer...

I was brought up in Liverpool and used to watch the ships that came into the Pier Head. When i said I was going on a ship one day my parents laughed and said it was only for the rich and not for the...

If you look at the Berlitz Guide it is there and I think (not sure without looking it up) that Aurora and Azura score the best on passenger/space ratio.

I used to work in education and prices were very high for me; they haven't changed much since retiring as I usually cruise alone now my daughter has left home. In fact I hardly noticed the massive...

I've done many solo cruises and love to swim; I've never had any problems at all with my things been touched even when sunbathing on one of the higher decks. People are generally honest on what is a...

The OP is based entirely on emotive blackmail (Disability, child, poppy seller etc) and it seems to me that P and O have been entirely fair. I know a few people who have taken disabled children...

I had A237 2 doors away in August and there were no problems except occasional scraping noises from tables, usually at lunchtime. Very quiet in the evening and at night.

I have a little aeropress gadget which makes a mug of coffee; you take a bag of ground coffee and some little round filter papers. The grounds and paper can be emptied into a waste bin leaving the...

I saw Fantasy on Aurora in August; I rather enjoyed it.

My daughter and I were upgraded to a mini suite on Oriana the day before we sailed; I think it was a last minute cancellation so they gave it to us as we had a deluxe balcony. We loved it (no butler...

I've had the Sindhu nashta lunch on both Aurora and Azura; very nice for a light lunch which is a change from the MDR.

Aurora is very stable being an old fashioned liner design with a pointed bottom instead of a flat one; I've been on her in a force 10 and she was fine.

I dine in Speciality restaurants alone if I'm cruising solo; no different from the MDR really except that you get a table to yourself which is a refreshing change. I like talking to others on MDR...

I've only done a Guarantee twice; both times I've got the highest grade of balcony cabin midships. I'm quite happy with that as I saved £600 as a solo!

These prices are reasonable; I may just order onboard in future and only take on my own bottle of champagne.

Flew back from Fuerteventura last night. Not usually on P&O itineraries. Excited to be landing there on November 30th on Aurora.

Very interesting posts. I did the Transatlantic on Azura last Autumn, the one where we broke down in the Azores and lots of things went wrong in the Caribbean. Despite all, my friend and I enjoyed...

As I have a few cruises booked I contacted P and O about this; they assured me that there are no plans at all to stop passengers bringing on a couple of bottles.

That's odd; I'm also Caribbean Tier (well Baltic at the moment but that's not guaranteed to last) and it took me about 4 minutes to complete my booking, with the cabin I had in mind all along.

I was going to pre register as I was interested in a single balcony on Britannia. Waited until today, went onto the P and O site and got the exact cabin I wanted with no trouble.

Was on Aurora last month and the only people in the bars with pagers (and they are really annoying when they go off!) were those insisting on tables for 2 of which there are not very many.

Someone I know contacted P and O about Adonia, and was told that her return from Fathom was unexpectedly early, which has meant a complete re-think and that new itineraries are being planned now. The...

Oh, and I also meant to say you won't get tired of the ports; they are all gorgeous. Get out and do a bit of walking, too!
There is a 13-17 club but most 17 year olds will turn up at first to meet...

Every time I've been on Aurora there has been a good mix of ages. I did the fjords in August, and it was a younger mix as you'd expect during school holidays. I would imagine that there will be a...
