I do not believe that cruise lines standards on the matter of hygiene have slipped i do believe that the passengers hygiene standard's leave a Lott to be desired no good blaming the cruise line when the passenger's do not do not use even the most basic hygiene precaution's like washing hands regally.

I think the fact that the Ventura is aimed at Younger families, many of which have small children, and probably have no experience of cruising before, will stretch hygiene standards on the ship. Best stear clear me thinks! Happy cruising.

Having sailed with RCI,Celebrity and P&O I would say that regarding hygiene they P&O have not got a high standard to start with,adequate yes,We have found other lines have more visible cleaning presence,we had a knock on from a virus on Arcadia and they were using Gel and no self serve until they were happy that there was no problems.We did not use the Belvedere due to fellow passengers using there fingers to pick up food and sometimes put it back,instead of using the utensils supplied,more then once we both witnessed passengers use the toilet and not washing there hands after,sadly its brought on board by us and spread by us?

Our experience was recently on the Sea Princess that the hygeine standards are not high profile enough and staff do not encourage passengers to use the sanitizers, also unlike Thomson ships, there werent enough sanitizers around the ship- only outside the buffet. Its no wonder then these ships suffer outbreaks of viral infections.

Sounds like something that JK Rowling could use a title for one of her novels but in the real world the word supplement strikes fear into the heart and wallet of many a single traveller. We receive quite a few enquiries where people make a comment about supplements and how unfair they are, but is the cruise industry cashing in or are the supplements part of a wider dilemma? Take hotels for instance; they charge a room rate and it doesnt matter if there are two people in the room or one perso...

Adonia back with P&O

By Gemma Coles

Gemma Coles's blog

 It doesn’t seem that long ago when we said goodbye to the P&O Adonia. P&O Adonia left the fleet in 2015 with much sadness to lots of passengers. The ship went to Fathom Cruises which is a line dedicated to volunteer tourism. Guests were taken to locations such as the Dominican Republic to help teach English or build water filtration systems to help with poorer countries. Carnival Group have now announced that after an upgrade to the ship, with the addition of a new rest...
