Seems we used to have one and they were very good but hardly ever used them to actually book, preferring to use a very good TA.

Be aware that there is no freedom dining on Adonia. Also, when we were on her two years ago for 50 nights, the buffet is not open every evening.

Our steward has always come up trumps with whatever we need, sometimes even staying on after his shift to organise extra drinks, glasses, wine, and nibbles for us when we entertained friends in our...

There are many sites where you may find this information. It just takes a little Googling. However, I don't rely entirely on Google and visit the individual port arrival and departure schedule...

Having taken 11 cases and 3 pieces of hand luggage on a very long cruise, many of our cases fitted under the bed but all the others were taken away by the cabin steward and stored elsewhere by them.

Both of us are covered for our conditions with our travel insurance. Both of those conditions do not require us to inform them, they are covered automatically. However, to make sure that we are...

I have only had reason to contact him once and he replied, in person, on a weekend. I suggested to my TA, who was also involved in my complaint, that it was a minion that answered my e mail but they...

I agree entirely but what annoys me about P&O is at every Peninsular Club party that you go on they bleat on about loyalty but it is only ever one way from customer to P&O. They introduced the...

Agreed.

Shorts do not meet the smart casual dress code suggested for some nights on some cruise lines; in fact you would not be allowed to enter the buffet, on some cruise lines after 6pm,...

Yes, I have a question for you, though not who you posted the challenge to.


With your experience of so many cruise lines, exactly how many nights at sea and ports of call have you...

When we visited a couple of years ago they were changing the goalposts. You could do it online, then you had to apply in person at the High Commission. Not guaranteed to receive your visa the same...

NV happens, not just on ships. You were unlucky.

All that you needed to do was contact the medical centre to inform them, you would then have been isloated in your cabin for 48 hours or so, and...

If the quoits players had been better shots they would not have needed to go anywhere near the dreaded box to retrieve their quoits.

Sorry, I know the quoits areas well on most P&O ships and...

We always order room service breakfast and OUR biggest complaint is that in times past they used to knock once and enter once you have said, come in. Now you have to get out of bed to let them in. I...

We are always addressed by name in the MDR, even on Arcadia which is not our favourite ship in the fleet, and it is in the best interests of the spa staff to be pleasant, they charge mega bucks for...

Peaches, you have no idea of my cruising history. It involves more than P&O though that has been the line that we have spent most time on, BUT, when they fall short I would be the first to castigate...

Even numbers are portside. Left hand side as you steam ahead.

"The main advantage is that you get the same table for all meals, the same waiters for all meals (and obviously the same people both on your table or adjacent tables)."

It's due to the air con and the dry atmosphere that this makes.

A wet facecloth, placed in the cabin overnight, in a suitable container, and you would not have had these symptoms.
