Cruise was great, lovley staff. I would have given 5 star but lost a star because of so many moaning and complaining 'older' passengers on board.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
Could have done with a few more activities for the 'younger' (age 50) age group, but what was on was good.


4 out of 5
Most of the entertainment was good, have seen a few of the shows before. Comedians and extra acts were excellent.

Children's Programs

Have no children.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Excellent service from all staff, all staff were cheerful maybe because of the great friendly captain.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
The odd toilet needed a clean but this is not P&Os fault, it is the disgusting cruisers who leave a mess.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Delux balcony cabin, very spacious in the cabin, the balcony could have been with being a little bigger so we could lie out but not the end of the world.

Ship tip

Medium sized ship, easy to access all areas of the ship with pleasant friendly crew, second favourite ship after Oceana.

Walked around Valetta on our own, lovely city but very busy. Did an evening excursion to old capital - great trip and very quite in the evening.

Took a P&O trip to the beach, nice trip, very quiet beach and bit stony, clean sea.

Piraeus (Athens), Greece

4 out of 5
Took a wonderful P&O trip to the Acropolis, very very busy, people everywhere but had to be expected at such a popular venue.

Katakolon (Olympia), Greece

3 out of 5
Wandered around the shops on our own, lots of harrassment from tour operators. Nice shops, not too expensive, good for handbags and shoes.
