P & O cabin allocation question

Recommended Posts

Hello,

After browsing this site for some time I now have a question to ask and have joined up.

We are due to travel on a P & O cruise shortly (Britannia)  and booked nearly a year ago with a saver fare which guaranteed us a DC cabin grade  ( deluxe balcony A deck).

We have today been notified that our allocated cabin is a DA grade and this is B427.

Having checked the deck plan this appears to be an “adapted cabin” so is fitted out for disabled guests so has a wet room with all the associated aids and no bath (one of the reasons we booked the cabin type was for the bath which I prefer to a shower).

My questions are ..is a DA grade a lower grade than a DC and do we have to accept an adapted cabin when we are both able bodied?

Thank you.

Probably best to ask on the P&O forum:

You booked guaranteed. So any cabin of the same grade or above can be ASSIGNED. The cruise line has done what you bargained for. I suggest you look at the deck plans for this cabin. While the bathroom may have a different design, look at the width of the cabin compared to the surrounding rooms. I would call this good luck, just know they can move you again at their desecration.

Yes, I've heard about this several times on P&O. When the final bookings are in, they will use an unwanted adapted cabin as an upgrade- most people prefer this because of the extra space.
