I went on a cruise on the Oriana with my mum last December. I was slightly aprehensive as it was an adult only cruise and though that maybe being younger I may be the odd one out, but it was a really nice mix of people and ages. There were quite a few mothers and daughters together, so I didn't... More

Just returned from a cruise round the Canary Islands where the weather was pretty hot. The food was the usual cruise standard (which is always pretty good). The staff were always polite and helpful, particularly our cabin steward who could never do enough. The entertainment on board I would describe as mixed, some good, some not so good. It is... More

I have been travelling since I was eighteen, so that's fifty years of destinations with work and pleasure. Visiting most countries in the world I thought I had pretty much seen it all. However, in all those years I had never ever been on a cruise, that is until now! At the beginning of April I boarded the good ship... More

I have just returned from a cruise on the Oriana. I was initially concerned that I had taken a wrong turn and ended up in a care home rather than a ship. To say that the majority of passengers were OAPs would be a fair assessment I guess that they are the only people who can afford to keep going... More

Just returned from the most amazing trip on the Oriana. The ship is old but just the right size with 1800 people. The cabins could do with an upgrade but are extremely clean and comfortable. Food was excellent especially as I have food allergy. The head waiter brought the next evenings menus every evening and checked with the chef prior... More

What amazing 12 days on board oriana. To see the Northern lights. Food was good but I found the Internet was over prices as well as spa was over price.

We have been on the Oriana three times now and although she is now 21 years old, she is still a superb ship and great fun to be on. The staff can never do enough for you and the food is always top notch. We love the whole experience, from ease of arrival to the Black Tie dinner nights. If... More

A Christmas trip to Amsterdam and Zeebrugge . Hardly any sign of Christmas on the ship. Indifferent decorations on show , no atmosphere whatsoever. This ship could do with a major overhaul. Waste water coming up through the shower outlet on several occasions and rusty joints in bathroom etc. Staff in ' timed dining ' first class ' but even... More

Cruise X516 Mayflower Terminal what a welcome friendly efficient from stepping from car to the friendly welcome onboard by the crew. Our cabin was well worn with signs of misuse, but clean with an excellent steward. Freedom dining was our choice and the menus in the Oriental and Peninsular Restaurants were varied and my special diet was catered for with... More
