I am thinking of cruiseing again on Artemis, selecting on of the world cruise segments for 2011(hong kong to cape towm) but we are a little concerned as to if po have let the standards slip, as we all know this is Artemis,s last year, have the engine issues been resolved,and can anybody inform me as to if the entertainment will be better than normal because she is on a world cruise.
Yours bb.

Having sailed on P&O Arcadia in their top suite Christmas New Year, I would not say they have let their standards slip, more like entered freefall. I will never sail with P&O ever again, it was not just the problems we encountered on this cruise it was the way they dealt with it after the problems were reported. We now only sail with Cunard, Royal Caribbean and my favourite Celebrity.

Thanks for your comments," you are not happy with PO" BUT IF YOU READ MY QUESTION, you will note my concern was re Artemis.I have also cruise many many times with varios companies, and yes some do have problems, but we feel that the cruise is as good as the people that are on the ship, if you look want we could all find issues that we would like to inprove, and yes the standards have gone down, but so have the prices from when we started cruiseing 20 years ago.Anyway i am still a cruise beleaver and always enjoy the company we meet onboard.Peter, we where on the cunard world cruise this year,yes we enjoyed it, but can i say that evan Cunard can learn a little re entertainment and tour organisation from a 3star company like Thomsons.I will leave on that note. Happy cruiseing to all.

Peter (PG) has a vendetta against P&O & attacks them every time they are mentioned on this site. He is entitled to his view but I suggest you read his review of the cruise in question, and the responses to it, and decide for yourself where the problem lies. http://www.cruise.co.uk/cruise-reviews/pando-cruises/arcadia/read_review_20765/.
