The ship was great as were the crew. The food was a let down, breakfasts COLD, COLD, COLD. other meals warm and tasteless. Other Cruises were far better. Cabin was great as was the Cabin girl.
The ease of embarking and disembarking was very good, the biggest problem was the British customs and security at Southampton...I suffer with the after effects of spinal surgery and use walking aids. These were taken from me whilst embarking through Customs and at this time I was told to remove my shoes (lace-ups) whilst trying to stand on one foot...this is nigh on impossible. Finally in a very distressed state I boarded the ship After boarding and setting up in our cabin I had to visit the Medical Centre. What lovely people they were, the young Doctor and Nurse.
One thing that was very noticeable was the mixture of "cruisers" on board...we found many rude, crude, foul mouthed individuals on board. We picked our friends and enjoyed their company. There were many inebriated individuals who could not or would not refrain from filthy swearing. I feel P&O should enforce their rules of not serving alcohol to persons showing signs of inebriation. P&O UK has lost me from cruising with them again.
