We're on the same late June cruise to the Greek Islands and I've been trying to find out if there's a shuttle from Souda Bay to Chania. The original itinerary stated Chania as destination but we're docking at Souda Bay and it looks as though there's not much there of interest. Can anybody help please?

That sounds about right. I like walking through the various working ports such as Piraeus.
Thank you.

Given shuttle bus service is a benefit of the select fare it seems unreasonable that P&O don't provide an up to date list.

If anyone could provide a link to an up-to-date list I would be very grateful.

Hi, we went to that port on a RCI cruise a few years ago, and yes we had a free shuttle bus from Souda to Chania, it dropped and picked us up right on the sea front in Chania.

Hope this helps

Thank you yes it does help. Fingers crossed P&o will also offer one.

The P&O port shuttle bus list is not something I shall be relying on.

Example: we call at Copenhagen - but not at the quay that P&O shows in its list*.
I'm wondering if the list is not kept too current.

My first impressions of P&O are that they are not very communicative about what's going to happen on our cruise and when.

Example: we now have a glossy "Holiday Handbook" from them, which is mainly about booking shore excursions while on this cruise. But we have yet to be formally told of each port's arrival and departure times; fairly essential, basic material when visiting a port, I'd say.

Does anyone have views on P&O's ability to share information with its passengers, either before or during the cruise?

* We found this out from Copenhagen's own port website, P&O have been silent so far about this.
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 information for each port of call, far more accurate, in my experience. Takes a little more effort with inputting ship, date of arrival etc.

Too late for you and your cruise but maybe of help to others.

We are also going on a Baltic cruise with P and O in May and have decided to do a shore excursion with Alla Tours who have been very highly recommended by our friend, when we are in St. Petersburg. It seems that most travellers on Aurora do excursions through the ship which are usually more expensive. Other excursions with Alla include Copenhagen and most of the other stopping ports but as there aren't enough requests for their services in these other ports, they can't do them which then means just using the ship tours. In our experience individual tours are quite a bit cheaper.
I'm in the planning phase of a cruise for May 2019. How would I go about booking the tour with Alla. I would rather go on tours with a private tour company. This will be my first time with P&O and also to Europe. Thank You.

I still have her email if you are interested
I would be very interested. This will be my first visit to Europe. Have cruised the Caribbean many times and Alaska. I much rather do private tours. Ship tours are always over priced and over crowded. Thank You for the offer.
