Just off Azura and had a pass for the Retreat for the whole cruise.
It is a lovely area, and I am glad I experienced it but I do think that P &O need to rethink their marketing and selling of this . I left it too late to book a Spa package 14 days in advance ( should have read the small print buried elsewhere...
) so hot footed it up to the Spa reception on day 1 . After some discussion realised that the only feasible option was to buy the 2 week pass for £200 - realised later that of course we were only on for 12 nights so should have got some kind of reduction. Was told day passes were like gold dust - whereas in fact I think I could have bought one most days especially as I had 2 port days on the ship ( couldn't go ashore due to back injury)The weather was not good on our cruise particularly for most of the sea days so for me this was an expensive lesson learned.
I was also told on the phone by p & o that I could book a spa package when on board whereas when I enquired on day 1 on board I was told I couldn't. Someone was giving me duff info....but who? A lot of info seems to be shrouded in secrecy!
