It depends on how much time you want to spend in your room, and depends what you want from your cruise. I like to spend as little time as possible im my cabin, there is too much ship exlploration and too much going on out of your cabin to spend time in it. Its a personnal thing.

None! Get an inside cabin, you are only in it when you go to sleep each night! Coli.

You get so many benefits. We had an aft minisute, next to the suites on Oceana earlier this year. Firstly, we spend a lot of time in our cabin - mostly out on the balcony. The suites on Oceana have huge balconies, large enough for a party. Some of the benefits you get are: champagne on arrival, flowers in the cabin, chocolates, canapes delivered to your cabin each evening, priority tickets for tendering at tender ports. You get the services of a butler who will do everything from arranging a drinks party to taking back library books. If you want more details of what the butler does then you need to look on the P&O site Cruise Connections. You will get menus for the following day delivered to your cabin each evening. The butler will also make any bookings you may want at the alternative restaurants. You will probably, but not definitely, get an invitation to the Captain's Cocktail party. I think that you may also have a choice of any of the restaurant menus - breakfast (including hot food), lunch and dinner served to you by the butler on your balcony. We do not use our cabin to sleep in as has been stated by the other reviewer. If you like to sit out on your balcony, overlooking the wake of the ship, with a glass of something eating the delicious canapes in the early evening as you cruise away from the port you will love the suite. Of course nothing has been said about the amount of room you have in the suite which has a fantastic bathroom complete with jacuzzi bath. If you can afford it go for it you are in for a treat.

Brief Moments In Bruges

By Michaela Kilburn

Michaela Kilburn's blog

 Day two of my trip on Ventura and once our conference had come to an end, we had the option to visit Bruges, a place I had never been to before and was very much looking forward to visit.We boarded our coach ready for the journey to Bruges. This took around 20 minutes or so then we were off to explore.I loved the feel of the place.It is such a pretty city to be in with cobbled stoned streets and medieval buildings. A popular way to getting around is by Horse and cart. I had to move e...

Are PO getting fussy?

By Neil Holmes

Neil Holmes's blog

P&O cruises have recently announced that they are banning fancy dress on all of their cruises! Even mini cruises which historically are booked by new to cruise passengers and parties who are celebrating.I can understand that if you are new to cruising and you book a taster cruise to see if you like it and there is a group of rowdy Hens, Stags or a group celebrating a birthday for example II can see how this is off putting.Cruising is meant to be fun, enjoyment and create memories.
