Ida and Neil Downj - Answered a Question by Smith (04 Feb 08 20:39)

I've never heard P & O described so accurately before! But to be serious although many of P & Os clientele can be fixed in their ways there are a good number more agile passengers on board but they are probably not your average party-going crowd. My opinion is that with her scepticism and your wit you would enjoy a cruise with NCL, Royal Caribbean, Holland America Celebrity or better still if you are a true "party animal" then Carnival is the company for you but you have to like the raz-a-mataz and whooping and hooping a lot more than I do. Hope this helps.....Nei.

I'd skip P&O and go for NCL or RCI for a younger crowd. If you want a classier crowd go with Celebrity.

Messrs Aldrich and Down are right on the money with their advice - definitely avoid P&0 and Fred Olsen- both very average and for the 50+ mass market.Trouble is their devotees try no other and swear by them!! RCI is very activity oriented but also very children oriented and a good level rather than an excellent level. Celebrity is much higher level in respect of food and atmosphere but less for party animals as well.Only other compromise might be Princess.

Exciting news from a Celebrity

By Julia Rhodes

2018 is going to be an exciting year for cruising and Celebrity are really mixing it up a bit!For a few years now we have had the lovely Eclipse based in Southampton, which has been great as P&O, Cunard and Royal Caribbean notably dominated the port until the 5* Eclipse was based there. Just what cruisers needed. I even personally sailed on the Eclipse back in May for a mini cruise to Le Harve. It is a beautiful ship it has to be said and the food, service, cabins etc are all top notch. B...
