As this was a repositioning cruise it was reasonable value. Food average, entertainment was OK. Destinations in Caribbean were good, would have liked to have visited Azores. As the cruise was sold as a fly cruise, the ship was 100% British nationals, we prefer mixed nationalities when cruising. Probably will not be doing P & O again.

Enjoyable cruise with an excellent itinerary. Food quality could have been better, ship is a little dated but still had a great time. Staff were excellent, good entertainment, not as good a ship as NCL Epic.

transatlantics's Tips

Castries, St. Lucia - Went to Reduit beach, got lots of hassle on beach. Taxis and chairs all same price, more expensive than barbados.
Basseterre, St. Kitts - Did ships excursion to Nevis, involved hour ferry to and from the island, quite interesting but was expensive for what we did.
Ponta Delgada, Azores - P & O cancelled due insufficient supplies to cross the Atlantic so we had to go back to Barbados to get more supplies. Meaning eight continuous sea days instead of 5 and 3. Very disappointing as we would not have taken this cruise if had known beforehand. Apparently we heard onboard this port is often skipped for various reasons. In the end we had to call in here after midnight to drop off some sick passengers,
Corfu, Greece - Interesting place to walk around, good UK shops (M & S).
Katakolon (Olympia), Greece - Quite a small place, most people go to Olympia (not very impressive, after having been to Athens). Took the little train to the beach only 6 Euros, would highly recommend.
Venice, Italy - Been here many times but still love it, gets busier every time we go.
Valletta, Malta - Very interesting place to visit, great cruise into the port, would recommend visiting Cathedral of St Paul. Look out for the canon being fired at Noon and 4pm.
Koper, Slovenia - New to this port, very enjoyable just to stroll around old town.
Norwegian Spirit Norwegian Spirit - Eat in the main restaurant at lunch time, better choice of food and much more relaxing/
