Startes with a bad crossing aacrross the Bay of Biscay which meant a late arrival into Gibralter, hence and evening visit instead of a daytime one. The weather could have been kinder throughout the cruise, but it was quite windy and cool at times. Walking around the deck was limited. The ship itself felt cold in most public places - many people leaving the theatres for this reason. Food was always hot, plentiful and a good choice. We chose freedom dining, but mostly chose the buffet for most of our meals and snacks Entertainment was (in my opionion) rubbish - with the exception of the duo Al and Chris. Boarding and disembarking were carried out quickly and efficiently. I liked the idea of having all the port information leaflets and other paperwork presented all together al the start of the cruise rather than daily. Our (inside) cabin was clean and a decent size with plenty of storage space. Our cabin steward Melwin was excellent. I didnt owever find the layout of the ship particularly user freindly with only 1 lift going to all deck levels. Comments from fellow travellers was how the standards had dropped - even from last year. As this was only our 2nd P&O cruise and the first on this ship, we didnt have a comparison. While there were many advertised activitites on board, as with most cruise companies, the timings overlapped. This gave the impression that there was a lot to do, but on close scrutiny this was not the case. We dont usually take the ships trips becasue we dont consider them value for money. The water in the pools was very cold so decided against using them and decided a hot tub would be a better idea, but these were at best tepid, and often cool. They gym was well equipped and advise was always available. Didnt use the Spa.
