Review summary

Went on a mini cruise to Belgium 5th August 2016, the ships public areas were lovely but I felt the service was lack luster.  As it was a mini cruise we only stayed in an inside cabin which unfortunately smelled strongly of urine in the bathroom.  I did complain about the smell both on the ship and after the cruise but felt P&O simply did not care. We did an excision to see villages of Bruges and a chocolate factory, what a rip off.  The so called chocolate factory was a shop not a factory at all and as for the tour of the villages, no comment.    I wish P&O's sailaway music was not so cheesy and they at least varied it every now and then.  I had booked a weeks cruise for September  2017 with them but decided we would rather lose the deposit and booked a week on RC's Navigator of the seas instead. We will not be sailing with P&O again.

Bathroom smelled so strongly of urine it made our eyes water. I did complain but there was no change it was awful.

Ship tip

We ate in the main dining room the first night and the food was just OK. The following night we ate in the beach comber which you pay a supplement for and it was much better food.
