Our cruise last week on the Oriana, to the Norwegian Fjords, was a first for us both and we would happily cruise on her again.
P&O's organisation at our Southampton embarkation was first class and we were aboard and sitting by the pool sipping drinks by 11.30am.
When we got to our cabin (outside with balcony), we were delighted with the space and furnishings. Our cabin stewardess, Mary, was a delight. She kept our cabin spotlessy clean and anything we asked for appeared without delay.
The meals were excellent and our waiters in the Peninsula Restaurant were first class. I have a few dietery problems and the head waiter sought me out on the first evening, and then came to see me every evening to discuss my meals for the following day. I couldn't have asked for more.
We also ate in the Conservatory, at times, which is self service and offered a range of meals, all of which were just as good as in the dining room.
The entertainment was superb especially the very professional Headliners who performed most evenings. We also favoured Chas Burnett who played his guitar and sang in the Crow's Nest and The Lord's Tavern.
The only negative was that the organised excursions were VERY expensive and we have learnt by experience that one can do the same trips independently for approximately half the price.
All in all a first class experience and we will certainly be cruising with P&O again
