This was our second P&O cruise, the first bring on board Ventura. We spent 11 days cruising around the Iberian coast. Even though it was November the weather was warm and the seas were calm. The on board experience was fantastic. Superb food, facilities and entertainment. To be honest you didn't really need to go ashore. The entertainments team made... More

Had a fabulous short break on the MV Oriana, stopping at Zeebrugge and Amsterdam. So much to do on the ship that we just did not get the time. Food was amazing, cabin was compact but not too small, staff were great. Some bars offered a peaceful and refined experience, but we also found heaps of fun and laughter in... More

If you like a restful nights sleep the avoid the Oriana. We could hear the drawers in the neighbouring cabins being opened & closed, this is OK in the daytime but not repeatedly in the middle of the night.

We sailed with P&O on the Oriana for the second time this year, this experience being better than the last. Everything about the experience was excellent with the exception of one rough night at sea, but you can hardly blame the ship for that! The food is first class, the entertainment is excellent, the cabins are well laid out and... More

I am currently sailing on The Oriana on a 17 night cruise from Southampton. my parents had sailed several times on the original Oriana and told me what a wonderful ship she was. But oh dear what a disappointment. It looks like a channel ferry that has seen better days.The food buffet style in the Conservorty restaurant is average at... More

3rd cruise with PandO, again first class service, you would not get this kind of service on land, everything is well organised and have no reason not to travel again with PandO. having been 3 times i now have my favourite ship and destinations, i suggest if you require a cruise give it a go. Norway is a good introduction... More

Our cruise last week on the Oriana, to the Norwegian Fjords, was a first for us both and we would happily cruise on her again. P&O's organisation at our Southampton embarkation was first class and we were aboard and sitting by the pool sipping drinks by 11.30am. When we got to our cabin (outside with balcony), we were delighted with... More

A 7 day cruise that almost delivered. The plus side: The room, meals and service were excellent throughout. We arrived in Southampton at noon and were on board and dining by 12:30. P&O have boarding off to a T. The destinations were Stavanger, Alusund, Geiranger and Bergen. It was so tranquil, fantastic scenery and you could actually smell the fresh... More

Did a Baltic cruise in late June. The ship was exactly what we expected from P & O in every respect. The food, service, cabins, staff, entertainment were all excellent. Our only complain is the P & O's habit of encouraging people to book (and pay) early with pretend advantages but then to sell off at massive discounts near to... More

We travelled from Southampton to Brugge, to Le Havre and back to Southampton. This was our first cruise break although 3 other couples that we travelled with had cruised before. From the moment we boarded the service was absolutely fantastic, from the waiting staff, spa, gym and the food was second to none! We boarded at around 1.00 on the... More
