We just sailed on the Oriana on a two day cruise with 4 other friends. A short cruise to Bruges. I am a seasoned cruiser on Princess and Celebrity and was a little apprehensive as to cruising on an older ship. Well she really surprised me. What a beautiful and elegant ship she is. I believe she is going in... More

My wife booked a last minute mini cruise to Brugge, sailing from Southampton, after an horrendous drive down from Rochester, mainly due to those three evils coming together torrential rain, holiday traffic and roadworks, but once at the terminal parking near the ship was a doddle and embarkation painless. Once on board we were a little apprehensive as we thought... More

Just returned from a 2 night cruise on the Oriana for a friends birthday. The ship was nice. We stayed on the Ventura last year so this ship is obviously a bit smaller which I actually quite liked in the day as you could get around a lot quicker and explore all areas more. I didn't like the ship being... More

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
