Guest reviews for Iona
Lovely holiday,great weather but this beautiful ship,Iona, was too big.
Iona is a beautiful ship, just too big for us. Too far to walk . Also I feel that the entertainment was definitely for those people aged 50 & down.

well organised in difficult times
Great experience, good food ,service and feel good factor. Will return to P and O again, great cruise line.
Excellent for P&O financially but not good for the customer. Disappointed
Narrow cabin ( very little room between end of bed and wall.) No drawer space. Unable to book meals in number of restaurants Fully booked every night between 6.00pm and 8.30pm over period of 10 days so unable try the specialist food.
Not like normal cruiseing to much of book this and this to much technology
Not enough deck space for sunbathing promenade deck to congested.
