Cruise itinerary

Day Port Due Depart
1 Southampton
2-3 At Sea - 2 days
4 Cadiz
Cadiz
From the splendour of its harbour, to streets full of Moorish relics, Cadiz is the perfect introduction to the beauty of Spain.
5 At Sea
6 Palma, Majorca
Palma, Majorca
Whether it’s lazing on one of the beaches, people watching from a cafe terrace or the fascinating old city that interests you, Palma has it all.
7 At Sea
8 Valletta
Valletta
As you sail into Malta, you are treated to a breathtaking landscape of soaring steeples and church domes.
9 Messina, Sicily
Messina, Sicily
For a show unlike any you've seen before, visit the world's largest astronomical clock, Orologio Astronomico, in the Piazza del Duomo. It's set in a 60 m (197 ft) bell tower and when the clock strikes noon, it comes to life. As Ave Maria begins playing from a loudspeaker, the bronze mechanical figures start to move. A lion roars, a bird flaps its wings and two historical heroines take turns ringing the bell, all before it ends with a statue of Jesus appearing from a tomb.
10 Naples
Naples
Cruising into the Bay of Naples is a memorable experience. The Naples port is overlooked by the imposing Sant Elmo medieval castle, high up on Vemero Hill, as well as the 13th century Castel Nuovo, which is right next to the Naples cruise terminal in the heart of the city. Within a short walk, to the left of the terminal, are three of Naples best-known landmarks: Castel Nuovo, the 17th century Royal Palace (Palazzo Reale), and the elaborate 18th century San Carlo Opera House. To reach Naples’ fascinating old town, go straight past Castel Nuovo and then over the Piazza Municipio.
11 Rome (Civitavecchia)
Rome (Civitavecchia)
'The Eternal City' from unforgettable historical sights to exclusive designer shops, Rome really does have it all. Ensure you throw a coin into the Trevi fountain to make certain you'll return.
12 At Sea
13 Cartagena, Spain
14 Gibraltar
Gibraltar
In Gibraltar, take advantage of the incredible views from Europa Point and visit the underground chambers of St Michael's cave- watch out for the Barbary Apes though!
15-17 At Sea - 3 days

Booked on 4 night trip calling at St Peter Port and Zeebrugge. Best fitted ship we have so far used although disappointed not to get table in 'Sindhu' as was fully booked pretty much before embarking - made note to book in advance next time. Still, 'Beach House' restaurant more than made up for it as did the quality of food in main and buffet restaurant. Couldn't get off at St Peter Port due to 2-3 metre swell which again disappointed but the captain turned round and went straight up to Zeebrugge so we had two days in Bruges to compensate which given my affinity with Belgian ale again more than compensated... as did the Mussels. Service on board was exemplary with one exception - on boarding the coffee and cake lounge we visited was overwhelmed resulting in a 40 minute wait for a drink. This may be as a result of several hundred passengers hitting the bars and lounges all at once. Having said that the staff were always smiling and nothing was too much trouble, a step up from our last cruise (NDL). Will definitely sail P&O again...

This did not meet our expectations. We found our own way into a poorly cleaned de lux balcony cabin on deck 10 and we were moved to a lesser cabin on deck with a non-view balcony! But I was assured this was still a del lux balcony cabin ... not ... Food OK, service OK but too regimented with their seating sergents! There was too much bingo and packaged entertainment, poor jokes and knees-ups for our taste, so this is our maiden P & O cruise and last. Back to the river cruises for us which are much better .

Fantastic time, good food, and great crew. Only complaint: passengers putting towels on sunbeds and not using them, even on shore days they put towels on and went ashore. Thanks P&O, will cruise with them again.
