If I were you I would take it with gratitude. What I cannot understand is why you did not contact the medical centre yourself rather than your steward, reception and the safety officer. Even a phone...
You can take it home but not drink it onboard...
You can take it home but not drink it onboard because P&O will kindly look after it until the last cruise day. In the past I have bought a couple of bottles of local beer in some ports and enjoyed...

I think P&O are missing a trick here. Seven night music festival cruises seem a good idea and could cover different genres of music. 50s and 60s could be offered as could folk, country, 70s,...

Surely the solution is obvious. If Celebrity’s free drinks package is important to you, book your cruise with them and not P&O

I always book by phone with P&O after having done a dummy booking online and have never experienced any price changes such as described on this thread. Most bookings I make are well in advance soon...

It is a well known fact that spirits in Gibraltar are cheaper than onboard. Unfortunately, the new regulations mean that any alcohol you buy ashore will be taken from you and returned on the final...

So how will it be before the first ‘strip search’ is carried out before being allowed to board? That may generate a long thread on here!

I am a non smoker but I think cigarettes onboard are much cheaper than in UK. Don’t know how they compare with prices in ports you may visit. Don’t forget that although ship will sell you as many...

Maybe if you booked through an agent and not P&O they will have informed the agent and it is the agent who has not informed you.

I tend to ignore such surveys because the large cost of employing people in HQ, interpreting the answers that the IT computer provides, to tell the company what they want to know, is another...

Is it possible that the glass was filled above the 500 cl line? It could be that as the line will not be right at the top of the glass, a full glass will be a pint - in other words a combined metric...

Three new cruises were put on sale last Friday, two to the Canaries and one to Bruges. They are Jan and Feb 2018. Prices were very low on Friday morning but as the bookings started to pour in, the...

Urgent repairs are not necessarily ‘ship threatening’ repairs. Had there been any threat to the safety of the ship, they would have stayed in port until the threat had been eliminated by carrying out...

Don’t be silly, since when have facts been needed on here to support an allegation against P&O in the knowledge they will not answer back?

It’s always worked for me. If those of us who like beer at correct temperature keep asking for it, the sooner they will realise that many prefer it at room temperature and stock the bar accordingly.

The easiest way to find up is by giving P&O a ring and asking them.
I hope nothing I have written implies that...
I hope nothing I have written implies that anybody saw me drinking alcohol I bought in Gibraltar onboard. I drunk it in my cabin which as far as I know was permissible at the time. Anywhere else I go...

I took a photo of a bottle on a shelf, with the price on the shelf visible, in a shop on an earlier visit and there was no problem either in the shop or onboard ship where they honoured the price. As...
Price matching Gibraltar prices is not as easy as...
Price matching Gibraltar prices is not as easy as it sounds because it is difficult to prove prices ashore. You could buy a 1 litre bottle of spirits in Gibraltar and get a receipt but P&O would have...

I agree that it is reasonable to allow just one bottle when first boarding but to allow nothing bought in ports of call may cause problems. Some P&O excursions take in vineyards etc and some people...

If you are booking select, which being March 19, I guess you are, it is likely that free CPS parking will be an option along with coach travel or some OBC.

Shouldn’t be a problem because sports24 is shown as part of the in cabin tv package so even though a bar may be desirable, there is an alternative.

There have been derogatory comments posted about officers in the past. I think it is very bad practice to slag off officers on this forum to which they cannot respond. It is completely subjective and...

I agree with what you say about Butrint National Park. It is well worth a visit. Some lovely scenery too. However, Sarande itself is hugely under developed and probably not yet worthy of being a...

If you booked directly with P&O, your best bet will be to call them today. If you booked with an agent, you will need to go through them. They are more likely to be able to help you than anybody on...
