Guest reviews for Iona
Very friendly staff though out the Beautiful ship really enjoyed the cruise to Norway.
This was our first cruise on Iona and we were really impressed. All the staff were friendly and helpful; our balcony cabin was very comfortable (we particularly liked the shower - a proper cubicle with a door); and the food was excellent in all the restaurants and in the Horizon buffet. We saw one... Read more
Fantastic all round cruise, the ship, the staff and the service. Would highly recommend and looking at booking another already!
Excellent customer service from start to finish with P&O. Started when booking the holiday. Service second to none.
Iona is a lovely addition to the fleet.
Really enjoyed my cruise on Iona. It was lovely to be back at sea having not been for nearly three years.

Food in the main restaurants was not as good as previous. It was more gastro pub than decent restaurant food. The paid restaurants were very good, but we expected the main restaurants to match.
Iona is a lovely ship but unable to do olden due to weather but rest of fjo
I would recommend P&o good value for money
A good experience and the weather made it some trips were vastly overpriced
The menus in the Freedom restaurants was a little repetitive and vegetables were mostly the same each evening. The ship was clean and our room attendant was excellent however the restaurant staff often seemed quite sad and not enjoying their roles but they never made any comment in this regard
A Nice Break
My 5th cruise with P&O and the Norwegian Fjords are stunning. For me Iona is too big and although modern feels impersonal. Freedom dining means that you never get to build a rapport with any of the staff and the service, although generally good, has been better on previous ships.
Great first time on P&O
Fantastic ship, crew and environment. Itinerary was good too.
