A better question would be : "Will P & O ever sort out their increasing number of problems?". ... Neil.

Adding to the comments of the 2 Professors of Cruising, also have a look at an earlier post From Asher, Warrington 19th Jan 2009, Beginning I have two cabins booked for P&O Ventura for Christmas 2009 the post is actually about changing from the Ventura. It may be beneficial to read, the comment from Paul Knowles who copied the response from P &O to his letter from raising concerns following the Christmas New Year Cruise, please read the whole comment for full details. However, in summary, and not verbatim P & O response states very sorry you (Mr K) heard uncomplimentary remarks re Ventura, true there were a number of incidents, but exception, not the norm, sadly element of society intent on spoiling for others, do have security staff on patrol, unfortunately, they cannot be everywhere at all times. P & O try to insist on acceptable standards of conduct on board, ultimately cannot be responsible for apparent and unforeseeable antisocial behaviour of some. Appreciate your concerns, wish to assure you, opinions you read/heard recently representative of minority, P & O regularly received great number of complementary remarks for Ventura. This may help you in deciding if the problems have been resolved.

Thank you, now I feel I must be very honest, my response was in jest to Neil’s earlier comment. I do use a spell checker, I write in good old Office Word, followed by a nifty cut and paste, as my spelling is dreadful, however, I do not use a legal dictionary. Further I find it irritating when writing, with reviews, you can use paragraphs, but not in answers, consequently ...... to break continuous text, so hopefully it's easier on the eye of the reader.

Seems it's not just Ventura that's got a problem! Read the review P&O Nightmare on Oceana 25th Jan. P&O need a proper security team (bouncers) as per RCI/Celebrity/Carnival if they are going to quell this behaviour. Sending a letter to a single individual is nothing more than 'company speak, twaddle'. Until P&O announce a positive plan of action, published for the cruising world to regain confidence from, then they deserve all poor feedback & criticisms they are getting.......Wilba.

Enforcing a dress code policy

By Steve Fuller

Black tie nights. Formal attire, smart casual, resort casual, semi-formal. They all have different names and all mean a different type of expected outfits.I get frustrated at the lack of respect shown by some people who think the rule doesn’t apply to them. That the’re exempt and can wear what they like. Absolutely you can wear what you like and we all should have a choice on what to wear at dinner but please pay attention to the dress code policy and respect it.This is for everyo...

This week is a very personal blog a difficult one to write too, but it is more a thank you to my friends, family and especially my colleagues.A couple of blogs back I wrote about a mini cruise I booked for my parents and their 50th wedding anniversary on the Norwegian Spirit from Malaga to Barcelona.I am pleased to say that my parents loved it and had a wonderful time. The weather stayed good for the sailing at the end of February, although windy the sun shone over them time they was on board...
