We sailed quite a few times on Eclipse and that would rate almost 5 stars from me whereas P&O is somewhere just under 4. Service standards, cleanliness and food quality is higher on Celebrity;...

They did start but then pulled it down and they now appear to be using some sections of the bow to take material down via scaffolding to the new cabins on the deck below.
However there are 2 deck...

According to a leading TA's e-mail the provisional name given to the new ship by P&O is Olympia.

Second seating club is the least popular dining option, so you will rarely have a problem choosing it.

I accept that we are only a tiny fraction of P&O's passengers, however I suspect that most Brits would be happier with gratuities included than using the current system.
And as Expat cruiser and...

It also said on the TV channel list in our cabin in February that Sky Sports news was one of the available channels, but that's not true either.

We never received a letter but did receive £50pp OBC for a cruise booked in Sept 2016 after sailing on Britannia in August of that year.
I assume there is a time frame in which you have to book to...

If I had experienced all those faults I think I would also have a downer on Azura, fortunately my experiences have been much more enjoyable.
However I am surprised at your comments about a narrow...

We went on Britannia's third cruise, do not remember that we experienced any teething problems and the staff seemed to know what they were doing, and the better design of the buffet and far less...

Looks as though all yesterdays preparation work for Independence dunes has been dismantled, I wonder why?

Have they changed the TVs and if so are they now widescreen and bigger? If not why have they just changed the system which was working fine in March as we left the ship before its refit.

I thought the crazy golf course was being relocated to that area of the ship, surely even the most ardent naturalist would not sunbathe topless in a children's play area!:o

Dai, why don't you read replies more carefully, in my earlier reply I specifically commented that on Eclipse at Villefranche, which can be quite choppy, they used a shore based tender, this allowed...

Dai, it's such a silly idea that progressive cruise lines are in fact using just such a gangway to help make tendering even more available to the less able bodied.

In the past I have felt exactly the same Selbourne and I have therefore always paid the auto tip/service charge. However if P&O can pay all their other staff a basic wage which does not need the...

So did I Sharon, and there looked to be a lift down one of the stairs to the tender platform. Maybe Britannia could offer the same facilities, but I doubt that P&O management would be prepared to...

I guess it probably qualifies you to talk about staying on board at tender ports Dai.;)

Dai, your opinions are limited primarily to P&O but, whilst I accept this is a P&O thread, that should not prohibit forum members from posting about their experiences with other cruise lines.

Not seen any communications from any cruise line as yet and we are both top tier members of all 4 cruise lines we sail with regularly, maybe its because our surnames are towards the end of the...

Not only obscure but probably predates :DUK data protection law by several years.

We have used a gangway style board to disembark from Celebrity Eclipse, which also uses a lift platform running down one of the sets of stairs to the tender platform. This enabled my wife to...

As others have said Selbourne, that means some staff getting double reward where passengers remove the auto tip but do then tip fully in cash. If this is happening I cannot believe that the staff are...

I recently arranged a booking for Canadian relatives via our regular UK TA, although I initiated the booking it was done entirely in their name and address and paid for on their credit card, all over...
