Sail Date: Mar 2017
Cabin: Deluxe Stateroom with Balcony and Bath/Shower

We chose this cruise along with a trip to India. The ship is very tired and needs total refurbishment. The hot food in the buffet was inedible, cold food acceptable. The restaurants were good with a good choice of menus. The entertainment was awful and it was very evident that the ships company were tired and lacked enthusiasm. There was a dreadful smell of sewage on the ship which was so bad we could not sit on our balcony. This ship is not good and certainly not the luxury experience we expected. The only saving grace was the staff who were exceptional and did their upmost to help you. We would never go on this ship again, in fact we are not sure if we would use P & O cruises again. It is a shame as we have been on P & O before and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The standards are slipping and it was certainly not luxury.

Deluxe Stateroom with Balcony and Bath/Shower

Cabin DG

The cabin was clean and our steward was exceptional. We had everything we needed but did expect robes and slippers. We could not use the balcony which spoilt our experience. It is obvious that cost cutting is being made much to the detriment of the passengers experience.
