Depends entirely on balancing the low price against a less popular time of year. There are better times of year to go but they’ll cost you considerably more
so .... is it worth doing or best avoided ??? lol :o
Agree with the above. Cruises are great value for money - and this is at the lower cost end at about £50 per day. I've been through the bay of biscay probably 7 times with no incidents at all. If there's bad weather, the ship goes closer into the coast. These are big stabilised boats and unless you're in a pretty bad storm you wouldn't know you were on one. p&o drinks are the same as pub prices, and the drinks are brought to you, so they are good value. Their mocktails are about £2.50 iirc. So for abot £50 you get 3 excellent restaurant meals, afternoon tea (not a patch on cunard's), buffet open much of the day and night, painting/dancing/talks/cinema and numerous other daytime activities if you don't want to swim, workout or read, and then usually a great west end style (nearly!) shows in the evening. If that isn't great value at £50 then i don't know what is, Plus they take you to different places most days. Extra costs in addition to those mentioned are parking (probably £100 if you need it), tours in the places you visit (ballpark £50 each if you need them) and i can't think of anything else except perhaps a couple of bigger shirts half way through.
Spot on. Its a far better experience than anything you are likely to encounter with a package holiday and just as cheap. The weather is around the 16C mark in the Med December time. . You take a decent coat which your going to travel to Southampton in anyway and your Tuxedo Gowns and gladrags in your suitcases (theres no limit to how much you take). Food is fantastic and the Fine Dining on the Ventura is as good as the Queen Mary 2 which we just disembarked from yesterday. If you dont like the idea of dressing up threes the Buffet which serves reasonable food and lots of it. Having lugged the kids and big kids around the world for 25 years plus (endless airport queues etc) I can say one of the best things about a cruise is that its virtually stress free. Theres loads to do and the ports of call on this one are very good. Alcohol prices on P&O are very similar to pub prices. If you've got on board spend you can use this on alcohol if you want. Its hard to convince people to go on a cruise (i dont like boats etc) but this is a 10 star hotel afloat and its so big you will hardly notice your on a ship at all.
Not if you smuggle it in your suitcase! But you’ll have to take your own cot, provide your own food, not be able to go ashore etc etc! Alternatively pay the infant fare and enjoy your holiday. Pick up a free brochure at your local travel agent. Plus they will give you loads of free information
