Bring your own. I can blow harder than most cruise ship dryers!

If you need heat and speed for your hair do then the ones they provide are no use IMO.

I don't have enough hair to need a dryer but my DW says she has never had a problem with any hair dryer on P&O, and I normally test it for her and it always seems OK to me.

I take my own because I find that the P&O ones work fine but they are quite heavy and unwieldy.

I suppose some of it depends on what you need for your “do” as well. I have very fine hair so need a lot of power in the dryer to get any body into it.

I just find the dryers slow and agree with Josh that they are unwieldy.

At least P&O are better than most and at a push I would use it if I forgot my own. I really hate the ones stuck to the wall in the bathroom you get on some ships / hotels. They burn your hands, they don’t have the oomph to put any body into your hair and you are fighting against the residual damp in the shower room. Rant over.

The ones provided ‘dry’ hair with no issue - however ‘styling’ is another matter! I’d always take my own space/weight permitting
