Review summary

Excellent cruise. Ship, food and crew very good. Good atmosphere on board, entertainment was not so good. Food was the best we have experienced on recent cruises, for a change the sirloin steaks were edible. There were quite a few days at sea but not many activities apart from the norm. Ports on the whole were ok but why they keep on going to Gran canaria beats me. We did the HOHO tour for which P&O sell the tickets. We seemed to do a tour of the most derelict areas of Gran Canaria. No one got off the bus as the stops were pretty unimpressive. In spite of this we had a great time and are looking forward to our next cruise in October
