  • Williams, Guernsey - Commented on this review

    After you gave some parts of the cruise a rating of 5 stars, howcome overall you gave it a 1 star rating. Does not make much sense really.

  • west, HIGH WYCOMBE - Commented on this review

    Average score equates to 3.5 * so how do you get to giving only 1 *. strange or do you work for p&o.

    1 star because you could not take booze to your room ?

  • Spartan, QUEENBOROUGH - Commented on this review

    I cruised on her in early June although the ship was not to my tastes it’s great for young families so I gave her four stars. I am surprised that having given most of the facilities a high score that the simple fact that you could not take alcohol onboard was sufficient to take the overall score down to one star.

      Hi Spartan, .........I can understand fairly high individual scores but a low overall rating which we see sometimes on these pages, 'cos the sum of the specified parts don't neccessarily add up to a reviewer's overall experience - if they did there'd be no need to click on an overall rating, the computer could do the maths. .......Poor on-board value, over-crowded pushing&shoving, and general atmosphere were part of this reviewer's experience. And yes, the cruise line's mistrust of clients comes into it. ..........Regards, Chris.

        Chris I have defended many peoples overall score being lower in the past but normally they have stated their reasons. Even Vernon on reflection has agreed that perhaps the mark was lower than it should have been.

  • VERNON, BOLTON - Commented on this review

    I Must admit i should have perhaps gave more than a one star rating for this ship and was an oversight if i could change it i would change it to a four star.
