    Pros

    Cheap holidays for friends, family and yourself. A very British establishment and it will always look good on the CV

    Cons

    Management, you feel are always one-step behind the major competitor.

    Independence of the Seas v Ventura?
    Independence wins hands down and its embarrassing. P&O have Noddy, that about sums it up!

    Unfortunately, it sometimes feels like you're made to feel grateful that CUK have given you a job. The latest internal empowerment course is a load of tosh devised by some consultant somewhere.

    P&O is like the BA of airlines - the tag line is almost identical. They sit there thinking they are the best - whilst all the time being overtaken by the competition and not actually realising it.

    It's run by people who were around during the dark ages and don't realise what a modern person wants.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try building a ship that shows a little inspiration, unlike the last 2 they've have had and the next one on order. P&O/Princess/Holland America/Cunard - all same ships just a different colour paint. The latest offering is based on a design 10 years old - nothing like being up-to-date is there boys!

    Competitors are building amazing ships with amazing facilities, P&O offer a circus, Noddy and a pathetic scalextric track - then wonder why anyone whos seen another cruise ship thinks its pants.

    Pros

    The best thing about working on a ship is you get to travel and see the world while you still grow in a professional manner.

    Cons

    Working on a ship tends to get hard because you are traveling all the time. There is no consistency.
