    Depends how early. 
    If it was 8am it would be like an extra day at sea. Providing that the ship's facilities are available to use and you can get food and drinks then I think it's a good idea. Expect they would want to get the previous passengers off first though.
    If it's only 1 or 2 hours before the normal time then there isn't much point.

    Hi Tom Cruise,
    160 days ("And counting, Mr. Bond") until we board Azamara Quest in Venice.  Two caravan trips to Scotland to come before that, though.  One to drive the North Coast 500 (in around 6 weeks' time).  The other to catch our daughter's shows at The Jazz Bar in Edinburgh as part of The Fringe Festival in August.
    One other cruise in the diary, as yet, in May 2019 - along the River Danube from Budapest to Bucharest on Emerald Destiny.

    its an enjoyable cruise i went on arcadia last oct for 24 nights i think it was and it was a relaxing way to get some sun, no airport hassle no long flight.
    the demographic was quite high a lot 70 plus and at times some of the lounges in an afternoon resembled gods waiting room, i reckon the waiters went round hourly checking for pulses lol.
    but i was only ever passing through there was plenty to amuse me and i got some sun in october. so ive 3 more v similar booked. this year it includes bermuda as well which is a bonus.

    Maybe they wonder what it takes to have to put up with some of the obnoxious twits you find on cruises!
    Think it will always be a topic of discussion, as it is with tips.

    Tom Cruise got a reaction from B&M in Further info on the new P&O Cruises ship   
    Makes sense to enjoy them on the ship as you spend most of your time there. When we arrive in port we like to have a look around and make the most of the beach (when we can find one), not go for a game of crazy golf or visit the local water park. I wouldn't mind if we had visited the port several times before or if there was more time in port to do these activities as well.
    Apologies, I wasn't suggesting you like all seven P&O ships but was just saying there is a good choice for people. People will stick to what they like, if P&O did build a ship like Anthem or Breakaway, then I don't think we would book a cruise on any of the other P&O ships.
    While there is a market for traditional ships, cruise lines will make sure they can provide. They will do their research and will see where they are making and losing money. If it gets to a point where they were losing money then I expect they would remove them.

    Tom Cruise got a reaction from B&M in Further info on the new P&O Cruises ship   
    This is where they actually have to be creative and bring something new to the industry. 
    Maybe think about what Brits have enjoyed at the seaside for years, the traditional type stuff, fairground rides, amusements, the circus, punch and judy, food stalls, train rides, water slides, sand castles, maybe even some kind of artificial beach with a pool that young children can actually use and paddle in. 
    The only reason British seaside resorts went downhill was because travelling abroad became more accessible and affordable, it was nothing to do with the type of activities available. Of course it would need to be classy, which I'm sure wouldn't be a issue for P&O, and all of the usual things you find on P&O, restaurants, bars etc could remain, which would tie the ship in with fleet.

    Does anyone on here have any more details about the new P&O Cruises ship launching in 2020? I'm hoping this one is more like Royal Caribbean or NCL with more activity type facilities for families and children. I think it would be a great move for P&O and would allow them to compete with the more innovative cruise lines / ships.

    Ok Mark, sounds great. I wasn't suggesting that prices are marked up, rather that the travel agents and cruise lines might not be prepared to pay to use the website. It's like certain insurance companies won't use Compare The Market etc. Not exactly sure how it all works but good luck with it.

    It's a shame P&O don't offer a proper drinks package for beers, ciders, spirits etc, rather than just wine or soft drinks. It wouldn't surprise me if they soon phase out allowing you to bring your own alcohol on board.
