This is useful advice for travellers in USA, Canada and Australia. However the original poster is in Denmark. I think the only way is to call P & O or e-mail via the numbers given in my last post.

We did this independently in October on the repositioning cruise. I'm sure we had a time on our e-ticket but I know I phoned P&O about a different query and asked then and it was either 12 or 1pm...

A couple of years ago I celebrated a Birthday on Oceana and was really touched to find a card and a few chocolates in our cabin. This year husband had his Birthday on board, also Oceana and nothing...

You should be able to change your Dining Option on your Cruise Personaliser to Freedom Dining. When you arrive in your cabin there will be a card telling you what restaurant you have been allocated...

Welcome to P&O ONT-CA. So pleased to hear that you enjoyed your cruise and have booked more. P&O certainly don't seem to make it easy to book from anywhere other than UK so glad it was worthwhile. We...

Pleased to hear that there are still the free offerings at the Horizon Grill. It doesn't read that was in the P & O feature.

Does your teenager need entertaining? Do they like being with a crowd of like minded souls? If so I would suggest one of the bigger family friendly ships, if not then Aurora, our favourite. She is...

I would look carefully at which ship you chose. The smaller ships tend to have a more traditional feel. On cruises of 10 days or more there is a speaker and a classical pianist. We did a discovery...

We were on Oriana a couple of years ago and arrived in Madeira at the same time as Arcadia. We followed her home but didn't see her at all until we were docked in Southampton. We did a ship's tour...
Arcadia review
Has anyone read the Arcadia review by Belly dance girl. It's hilarious but not in a good way. I know you can't comment on reviews on the review page but can we here? I find it hard to believe that...

Last year we did a 10 night Christmas market cruise on Aurora leaving on 6th December. The decorators got on board with us and each morning when we woke up a bit more of the ship was decorated, it...

I don't think you can argue with booze cruise, even P&O are now calling them celebration cruises now rather than taster cruises. We did a 2 nighter in July for our daughter's Birthday and it was...

Rhod Gilbert keeps calling Britannia a ferry!! I am ready to throw something at him!

I had been following the prices on a December 18 cruise for a while and they have gone up twice. However the increase has been counteracted by on board spend. Have just got back from a cruise and the...

Just got off Oceana on Sunday and we had a lovely time. Cafe Jardin is a great venue, lovely for breakfast and lunch for free ( people seemed to clock onto this as the cruise went on and it became...

Last year we chose a cruise on Oriana because it was going somewhere different - St.Nazaire. Personally I thought it was a great port as was fascinated by the German U Boat pens, finding out about...

We have booked our own flights for the October re-positioning cruise. Did online booking and there was an option to remove flights. We are using our local airport which is much more convenient.

sounds like the perfect ship but alas the Library on Aurora is no more. It was a beautiful space but has turned into Sindhu and the Library is now a cubby hole next to the Crows Nest

We did the Christmas Markets cruise on Aurora last December and thought she was perfect for cold weather. Having the covered pool meant you didn't have to go out in the cold and could still swim....

We left on Oriana during the Boat show last year. Didn't notice any extra traffic as I imagine most attending boat show had arrived long before us. However we did get to enjoy a lovely display from a...

I booked direct on P&O website and when got to the flight option page there was also a tickbox for no flights. I believe you only have this option on select fares. This gave us a reduction of £100...

My Mum did 77 nights round South America earlier this year (not P&O), had a fabulous time and wouldn't hesitate to do it again. She had great table companions (all single) but also got involved with...
