Read This Before you book!!!
Well what a shock!! Not as good as before!!! Was on this ship when it was new in 2008, wow & what a cruise it was, Been with P&O for years and also done Princess. This WAS the best!! (independence) But im unable to say this now, The ship was dirty where you wont look as a rule like under the dinning room table!! all around the table legs were bits of food from other evenings. the dust and grim around the bar areas and lifts was a surprise I could write my name (& Did) in it and was still there a week later.
Coffee was 9 out of 10 times in the windjammer cold.
The staff I found to be very different from before a lack of respect to customers, Not all but at least 70% of them. Price on drinks are well up and now cost much more then UK bars instead of the same.
Your now almost stripped searched when boarding and not for drugs No, DRINK!! Babies & Toddlers are not permitted into the pools!! Remember this when booking your Family Break!!!!
The shows are all the same as 2008!! Shocker, also been confirmed to me that they stay the same for six years!! so why would you go back?? Shows are great but once you have seen them what do you do ??
Over all we had a good time and are going again in March but that is only because we have already booked, If we had known about the shows we woul leave it till the new shows are on board (2014)
This was in my view 100/100 Its now 65/100 I also spoke to others who had been on only a year ago and they agree, only they say they wont return.
