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

I recently had the pleasure of a 14 night Norwegian cruise aboard the Oriana. The staff are amazing and the food is very good. I can't comment too much about the entertainment as I spent most of the time admiring the amazing scenery Norway offers but I believe it was good from what I heard others say. There are some...

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.
