We were told by a P&O person on the phone a week ago not to pre-register as you do not get the precise cabin you want. You can book a grade of cabin when pre-registering, but you will be allocated a cabin when the cruises actually become available for booking. The only thing pre-registering seems to give you is a definite cabin at a category you want. In the 16 yrs we've been travelling with P&O we've never done it.You never have had cabin allocated of your choice by booking direct with P&O but if you pre-register with a TA they ask for your cabin preference so if you give then 3 or 4 numbers in order of preference you are usually successful. We have pre- registered with a particular cruise TA for 5 maiden cruises with P&O and every time got first choice of cabin.

I was going to pre register as I was interested in a single balcony on Britannia. Waited until today, went onto the P and O site and got the exact cabin I wanted with no trouble.Thats rather strange because we have been trying to book a stateroom on Britannia today as Caribbean tier in Peninsular Club and all it comes up with is "this cruise is not available to book yet".
