Considering this was an arctic experience cruise you would expect freezing conditions. The ship however was not fit for the purpose of the visit. The ship has only returned from dry dock and in my opinion there probably were some issues that were not corrected....More

Another wonderful holiday aboard P&O. Excellent good, service and entertainment. A fabulous adult-only ship. We sailed to Spain, Portugal and Morocco. Impossible to fault. Staterooms clean, comfortable and with enough storage. A+++

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.

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
