About P&O Cruises

P&O Cruises is the oldest cruise line in the world, and the largest cruise company catering to the British market. Their ships are immediately recognizable thanks to the Union Jack painted on the hull. It’s not an all-inclusive line, but gratuities are included in the fare. Passengers who sail with P&O are generally British, and the lowest average age is around 50 except during school breaks and holidays. Amenities and activities on P&O include a family pool and adults-only pool, designated kid’s clubs divided into age groups, a ropes course, masterclasses at the Mix Bar, and the casino. Ships also boast a number of both specialty and complimentary restaurants, including an updated take on the classic cruise buffet called The Pantry, where passengers can load up their plates from eight themed areas before finding a spot at a communal table, private booth, or bar with stools.

    AMAZING! Not one person was unwilling to help. It started with me watching the restaurant supervisors and manager not being afraid to clean or switch the lines from breakfast to lunch. Read full review
