  1. P & O make changes wherever they like especially when they bring out new edition brochures, and they don't always inform you of the changes, they did the dirty on us once and we'll never travel with them again
  2. How do we know behind the scene staff get a share, I haven't seen a list published by P & O of who get a share.
