Yes, at 21 she is showing her age but still much loved, and still looks classier than some other cruise ships which look like an office block on a barge! This was my second cruise on her and I found her just as enjoyable despite the quite dodgy Atlantic weather on our trip to Spain, Portugal and the Canaries. I... More

My wife and I travelled on this fantastic ship on a 12 night cruise which left Southampton on 6th December. It was a holiday and we had also arranged to renew our marriage vows. The whole experience was superb and the Captain carried out the ceremony which was brilliant and what a nice guy too! The staff involved made this... More

We very rarely get to go away in December so were excited to be going to Madeira and the Canaries on the 6th of the month. Dropping the car off at Southampton was very efficient but then it all went down hill. When you are requested to be there for midday I was hoping the room may be ready but... More

We looked forward to our cruise on P&O Oriana, having sailed with Royal Caribean and Carnival, we wanted to give P&O a try. We were very disappointed. Firstly the ship is very tired looking, we didn't get the wow factor we usually do with other cruise liners. Some staff were very friendly and helpful, but most were rude and unhelpful.... More

This ship is very very tired. we had an outside cabin that you could barely see out of the window due to the stains on the window. The bathroom was very old a beaten up with rust on the door frame and fittings, a dirty old shower hose greeted you every time we had a shower. The sink looked like... More

Just got back from week on Oriana sailing to guernsey, La-Rochelle, Bilbao and LA Coruna. Had a midship inside cabin which was fine. Staff very attentive and food was first class. What made our holiday was meeting new people on a table for 6. Thank you to Andy, Jan, Gareth and Elaine. Also to our waiters on T18 oriental restaurant... More

Just returned from 2 weeks on Oriana. We had an outside cabin with a large window, as we usually have a balcony we were a little apprehensive but found that we didn't miss the balcony at all. The cabin was compact but well set out, although the bathroom was very tired and in need if updating. Oriana now has freedom... More

This was our first ocean cruise. We arrived at the terminal ahead of schedule, but this was no problem, our luggage and car were taken away and we were checked in by a very friendly lady who, once she realised it was our first cruise, spent some time explaining things to us. We boarded taking with us a bottle of... More

Sailed May 14 first cruise outside cabin and loved it. Plenty to watch as you sail along, no lugging the suitcases about, easy boarding, good food, ate in the buffet restaurant, cabin plenty of room and Oriana has plenty of deck space for walking, sitting, gazing. Drinks cheap, plenty to do, headliners very good, loved the cinema. Booked another cruise... More
