It's worth pointing out that shipwise, P&O is getting closer to Princess all the time. If you cruise on Oceana, Ventura or the forthcoming Azura, then you'r basically on a Princess ship that's been decorated/refurbished for the uK market. Oceana started her life as a Princess ship (Ocean Princess of, I think, 1999) while Ventura and Azura are very near sisters to Ruby Princess and Emerald Princess. Certainly they have the same hull.

None of these three P& ships have a Crow's Nest Lounge, unfortunately.
