Quite right too.



You don't want your child asking about it every time you walk past it...it's not right.



Same as when You go to the cinema....you don't want to be bombarded with adverts off gloom.. You go there to forget

What a ridiculous thing to have on a cruise ship. I can't imagine why P&O would have approved that. People are going away to relax and enjoy themselves, not be reminded of a holiday where a little girl disappeared.

It's only like the huge poster which was in the arrivals hall at Blackpool Airport. It has been removed now as presumably they realise that she isn't coming home and in any event it would be worthless looking for her as she would bear no resemblance to the poster now. What is the point of putting something like that on a cruise ship. I doubt that she would be on the cruise and people have moved on now and it is part of history. I doubt whether the vast majority of people even think about the case, even fleetingly.

The Mail Online now has the same story - "P&O passenger outraged as child-friendly cruise ship displays 'odd' artwork featuring story about missing Madeleine McCann".

If I was a child looking at the "artwork", my question would be "Why are Madeleine's parents laughing, are they happy she is missing?"

Whatever it is interested,it is in bad taste. The McCanns probably thought it was a good idea because Cruise Passengers might have identified her when they went on shore in foreign ports and took photos of the poor child.

I agree, the "artwork" is inappropriate, someone is guilty of very poor judgment.  The man mentioned was quite right to be disgusted/distressed by it.

The McCanns had nothing to do with it Panda. It was a mural put together by an artist which P&O used.

As interested said, surprising the photos chosen to be used of the parents smiling and laughing. A subliminal message maybe?

"Poor child" followed by a grin smiley is in pretty bad taste as well. JMHO.

I was one of the unfortunate people who took four kids to see Shrek 2, only to be confronted by that awful Maddie advert in the Odeon. My own were fine after a bit of reassurance, my neighbour's wee boy was not. He was terrified somebody would steal him in the dark of the cinema. I demanded my money back from the cinema manager and I got it, too. And I would be doing exactly the same thing if I had booked a cruise with P&O and came across that on the boat, on a holiday I'd saved up for all year.

Regarding the subliminal message - I notice the man mentioned in the article is quoted as saying, "We found depicting the ANGUISH of a family at their child's abduction a very odd subject to have on a child-friendly boat."  I think HE might have been sending a subliminal message himself.

good on the man that complained. Hes right, when I go on holiday I don't want to be reminded of all horrible things that have happened over the years. ive got enough of my own if I want to dwell on them, don't want to see that at least once a day every day.
