  1. Thank you for your thoughts. It seems to me we weren't given good information when we booked.
  2. Interesting photo that is making me have doubts. When we booked a promenade balcony cabin during our last cruise on Britannia, we were told that we would look down onto the promenade deck and might just see the top of peoples heads walking past. This photo is quite clear in showing that is not the case, as it is only raised just a little from the promenade deck and definitely not above it. Add to that, the view will be almost mainly all the structures along the side of the ship. Has anyone else booked one of these cabins? The other issue is that the cabins above appear to have larger balconies and will therefore be above the cabins below, not just their balconies. I wonder how noisy these will be with chairs being moved around above you. Views? Opinions?
  3. Hi. Does anyone know what time the float out is please? UK time?
  4. I'm starting to have doubts but won't cancel. We have a 2 week cruise booked next year. Sounds different so we will see. If we dont like it, it will go on the same list as Britannia (another one that we won't do again).
  5. Interesting thought. I just googled space ratio for P&O ships and come up with this. If it's right, it doesn't look great. The higher the number the better.
  6. I'm being a doughnut today, I think you're right. Pausing it makes it much clearer. Funny though when you watch it at fast speed. LOL
  7. Sorry I was referring to the image in post 123, not the video.
  8. I just studied that bit again. Definitely not walking down steps lol.
  9. Did anyone see the bit where it seems to knock something off the top of the building around 38 seconds in?
  10. Fantastic, now we get an idea of what the position of our balcony cabin looks like, overlooking the promenade.
  11. Ah ok. But I was told there are definitely no balconies actually on public promenade areas. Only overlooking them.
  12. On the deck plans, it looks like the balcony cabins are on the promenade deck but they are actually a deck above overlooking the promenade deck. So deck 8 is actually a double decker. We have booked one of these while onboard earlier in the year and had it clarified that they are actually above the promenade.
  13. Yes, I noticed that too. It's certainly a bit different to the usual P&O ships. I guess it will all be a surprise when we get onboard.
  14. We booked an Iona balcony cabin when we were onboard Ventura earlier this year. When we got back to our cabin and actually studied the deck plans we thought we had made a mistake as the cabin appeared to be directly on the promenade deck where the walkway is. In a panic we went back to the future cruise desk, and we were told there are actually not any cabins on that deck, they are a level above (although the deck is still called promenade), but directly overlooking the walkway. There are not any (what are called garden cabins on other lines), actually on the walkway part. So there will be people walking directly in front, but below, our balcony.
