Just to add this is an inside cabin , but not much more for a balcony. Probably one of the lowest prices I have seen for P&O .

Booked this about 9 months ago after completing a similar trip on the Ventura last December. Amazing value for money and great ship. Nice cabins and decor throughout. On board entertainment is ok and the Silver Service dining is excellent if you like dressing up. The buffet food is good too but a bit on the plain side as you might expect.
You get the best part of a day at most ports of call. A brisk walk to each town is better than paying for the the bus. The excursions are expensive but they are worth it if you can afford them.

Drinks are a tad expensive but P & O prices are about the cheapest of the Cruise lines. Expect to pay about £20 for the cheapest bottle of wine at dinner. They do let you bring one bottle of wine per person on board and you can top up at ports along the way. Some cruise lines carry out very intrusive searches for alcohol every time you return to the ship and will confiscate any alcohol they find. P&O have a much more relaxed policy. Alcohol is very cheap in Gibralter and a lot cheaper than the onboard offers.

Dont forget to add gratuities to your bill. These are approximately £6 per day per person. You can opt out of these once on board and tip workers individually with the envelopes provided. You can do both as we did as the workers get paid peanuts and depend on these tips.

For those worried about being "at sea" let me assure you that you wont even realize you are on a ship. Its just like being in a very large hotel. Just lets hope there is no more storms lol.

Lots of heat to Yozzman1234 for the post. Just book it. You wont be disappointed

Heat added a really good price. I sailed with them last Xmas and new year on a different ship £1600 each + a bar bill

We done a 14 night Caribbean on Azura over Xmas and new year 2 years ago . Cost £1550 each .
We go on a Caribbean transatlantic in March 14 nights , but only 5 islands. And the last 4 days will start to get cooler . But that was only £999 pp . So I think this is a cracking deal . Our bar bill hit £900!!!
