First time on ship is definitely my favourite. The cabin was great inside no problems. Staff were friendly and attentive and entertainment was good. We had 4 turn rounds and 3 helicopters because of people being ill everything was very professional and made it back...More

Vanilla and average spring to mind but at almost premium prices. Meals plentiful but bland. Cabins a bit on the small side. Having said this the Oriana does seem to have a lot of repeat travelers. The excursions were a definite plus both in terms...More

Oriana is a lovely, but aged, ship. Therein lies her appeal. The rear decks are staggered and spacious. The cabins are not over large but adequate. We endured Force 7 in the Bay of Biscay and the ship was surprisingly stable. Similarly on our return...More

We left Southampton for an 18 day cruise to The Azores on board the Oriana, chosen because it offered an older style cruising experience and fewer on board guests. Yes this ship has many older folk, a lot were very fit and slim and the...More

Questions & Answers

Deb F
Can someone who has been on the P&O Oriana Northern Lights Cruise please give me a list of what each of the shore excursions costs? I'm trying to determine the ACTUAL cost of the cruise. I've tried contacting P&O via their Facebook page and they FINALLY provided an email address, but are adamantly NOT going to provide additional information on shore excursions until I have booked. I'm hesitant to book until I know what the cruise will ACTUALLY cost me. I've already discovered that I'm up for £66 in tips (which you can ask to have removed from your tab?!) as well as not-insignificant amounts for bottled water (500ml - £1.50 1.5ltr - £1.95) and for drinks (£35* which includes 20 refills of 330ml soft drinks), as well as £81 for the very MINIMUM of internet package - £120 for something decent, and they refuse to tell me if these cover more than one device. I also asked whether there were personal weight limits for the reindeer and husky expeditions, as I'm quite overweight, and they refused to answer that, too, unless I had a booking. Basically, they're saying I can't find out anything (including whether these shore excursions are already fully booked) unless I book a cruise, and I don't want to book a cruise until I know how much it'll cost to get on these expeditions, and whether I can actually go on them. Would appreciate any help anyone can give.

I don't think cruising is for you. It costs. If you want a holiday on a budget, suggest you go camping!!!

If you ask your cabin steward, he/she will put them in storage until you need them again, which will probably be the day before debark. We did a 35 night cruise and they stored 4 cases for us although some would have fitted... More
