I would have thought that you would know where the cruise is going when you booked it. You will receive a personalised booklet about 8 weeks before departure which lists all the details and details of all the excursions for your cruise. Tickets should arrive 3-4 weeks before departure.

We like a balcony more space, on good days breakfast outside something rarely you can do at home plus a better view to see the sights, we think it is worth the extra others disagree. Surprised when you booked the cruise you weren't made aware of the ports of call etc but you can go onto the P&O website and find this out this is an example of a cruise in May http://www.pocruises.com/Cruises/E912/Itinerary.axd Hope you enjoy your first cruise and many more to come !!

How exciting, I remember just how you feel. We have found if you ask for what you need, with a smile, most staff will do anything to help if they are given the chance. I assume by itinerary you mean shore excursions as I sure you know where you are going. We find we like to walk when ashore so do very few trips unless it is somewhere we really want to see. Trips can be very expensive, but at least you know the ship won't go without you! I'm sure you'll enjoy your balcony, but be sure to socialise with your fellow travellers too. You meet some very interesting people on a cruise. Have a fantastic time.

Hi yes B deck is a good choice the rooms are ok bit not very big and the balcony we had was just big enough for 2 chairs and a small table,we found Oceana a nice size of ship with plenty of nice places to sit and watch the world go by, the pool and sun decks can get full very early on we prefer the Promenade deck which you can have a walk round but has plenty of seating in the sun or the shade,the food in the main Restaurant and Cafe Jardin we thought was first class, they have some very nice bars and the pub now its smoke free was a pleasure to drink in and they have live music all round the ship. I would think you have picked one of the best ships we have been on, follow the other advice you have got and enjoy it?

Two more things: You can either be lazy and relaxed and just go with the flow when you are on the ship, this is normally more expensive but ever so easy. You can do more of what you are doing now and search for information about the sites you are about to see, this can be done on the tourist web sites for the areas to be visited or even by visiting similar sites to this one where you can actually chat to folks going on the same cruise and study the various ports. Yours choice. ......Neil.
