Hi David, the only outdoor eating area I came across was in Jonny Rockets, all the rest are inside. But don't forget you can use sometimes use the main dining rooms for breakfast and lunch there is also Sorrento's and the promenade cafe. I did see people bringing the likes of cakes and coffee from the Windjammer out onto the deck area by the swimming pools but whether this would work for anything more substantial I don't know. The other thing to note is that when the Windjammer is packed you can sometimes use Chops and Portafino areas to eat the buffet food during breakfast and lunch.

I think this has a lot to do with your itinery and as we had mainly sea days as it was a short cruise there was no way of knowing what others might be doing. You can look at the excursions and avoid the rush by anticipating what time others need to get off the boat. We mainly ate in the dining room for all meals as it was more structured and if you have a really want to avoid crowds - order room service.

The choice is poor in the main resturants for breakfast n lunch ! we found the windjammer is great we never encountered a problem in getting a table we used to go 8 to 8.30 and the choice is much greater though the funny thing is they dont do poached eggs in windjammer but only in main resturants ! how strange ! people do get things from windjammer and take them on deck we found this is no problem we used to take coffee etc afterwards to have with a ciggy etc enjoy your cruise the iots is agreat ship and cant wait to get back on board next year !!

Where were the P&O Fancy Dress police?

By Kerry James

As many of you know, I am getting married at the end of May and after deciding to have my wedding on land rather than at sea, it seemed only right to have my hen party on a cruise.
