Onboard Basics


Tipping is not required on any of our ships but if you’d like to thank the crew who provide you with great service, you are welcome to tip them personally or visit the Reception Desk to have the tip added to your onboard account.

Appropriate behaviour

While we want you to enjoy your cruise, please try to avoid making excessive noise in your room or in the corridors, to ensure the comfort of other guests. If you seriously inconvenience or jeopardise the safety, enjoyment or wellbeing of any guests, the Captain has the right to confine, sedate or disembark you in the next port of call. In such cases, P&O Cruises are not responsible for any expenses including your return home. In addition, you will not be entitled to any refunds. While the Captain will always act reasonably in these circumstances, you accept that the safety, well-being and enjoyment of everyone onboard, comes first.


To preserve a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, we ask that you observe a few guidelines:


Should you wish to record footage during your cruise, please feel free to do so, however, please be mindful of the privacy of others. Recording footage of entertainment performances is not allowed for copyright reasons. Recording footage for commercial purposes is not permitted without prior consent.


We require guests to cover-up swim suits when entering the ship’s public rooms. During the day, casual clothes are suitable. After 5.30pm, smart casual attire is required in the public lounges and restaurants or as published in the daily newsletter  'Good Times'.
