I'd also heard that in some parts of the country, with long waiting list, P&O were accepting hip replacements on cruises longer than 10 nights. It seems its cheaper than NHS and recovery was shorter.

Wish I'd known that, my mum just had her hip done and she's a cruiser, she would have made sure her recovery took a lot longer than normal. LOL.

Is this a wind up, or something your friend has read in the Daily Mail? As far as I know the DSS has not existed for years (now DWP), and as the DSS (or DWP) have nothing to do with housing homeless people I think it highly unlikely. If people are statutory homeless they will be dealt with by the housing or social services department of a local authority, and from experience of working in a housing department I can tell you people are much more likely to be shipped to a grotty B&B than sent on a P&O cruise, and believe me there is no shortage of grotty B&B accommodation out there which is much cheaper than a cruise line!

No surprise that p and o didnt comment as i think question speak for its self( rather silly), i would imagine that many people would be up in arms if a homeless person was placed on their cruise most passengers would have saved and worked long and hard to afford their holiday and some passengers will have paid thousands for their trip, get a job then get a house!

Think your friend is winding you up. It costs approx. couple of thousand for a two week cruise. How long did your friend say these homeless people would be at sea??

I f the government gives themselves 7% rise, and 8 billion in foriegn aid, then P&O MUST be mad, I have to work hard all year to save for my cruise holiday with P&O, and I for one will not be using them again if this is true,.
