Reasons for trip

Regular holiday

We arrived in Barbados, on time & we were quickly transferred to the ship. First impression, very big, on entering the Atrium looked bright, large & airy. We then went up to our cabin D238, a balcony cabin, much smaller than on Azura, just enough room for two chairs on the balcony, but you could not recline the chairs,no way!

Cabin space smaller, also the shower room, at least there was a proper shower door!
We were freedom dining, the first two nights we decided on sharing a table with 4 other people, what a mistake, there was 4 in my party, all we heard was how much onboard credit the others had received! Our credit was paltry by comparison, and yes, this was our 16th P&O cruise.

Sindhu was fantastic, as was the glass house & the beach house. Entertainment was great, weather was fantastic. Ceas while sailing, while on the beaches sea was very rough, amazing.

Hygiene on the ship! Novo virus time bomb waiting to happen, no gel ever when coming onto the ship! Sinks in buffet areas, but the times people did not wash hands, we also witnessed officers use the toilets & not wash hands, horrifying , in the extreme.

Swimming pool had to be emptied 3 times, because of poo! The bar ran out of Prosecco, Pinot Grigio & Savinion Blanc, appalling.

Would we recommend or return, never. Celebrity cruises here we come. Wake up P& O before it is to late. Also the clientele left a lot to be desired,in certain quarters.
