The 2nd cruise on th Oceana was exceptional good value. It is a traditional cruise ship which was formally the Ocean Princess. Whilst having been afloat for quite a number of years she is still in good condition. Our inside cabin was ... Read more

This was our first ever cruise. The most expensive holiday we have ever taken - the holiday of a life time and highly recommended by friends who have cruised before. Staff on board were highly trained, professional and hard working - ... Read more

We were looking forward to our first PO cruise but were disappointed. The ship is tired and needs a refit, food very average, entertainment overall average. However staff excellent and friendly. Cabin balcony small and tiny bathroom. We ... Read more

We had a mini-suite on Deck 10 - (B410) A nice size with enough space to store my wife's wheelchair. Excellent shower & whirlpool bath. Unfortunately, the furnishings were rather worn with stains on the sofa cushions and fraying ... Read more

I went on a cruise with my boyfriend and his family. We visited Rome, Monte Carlo, Pisa/Florence and Ajaccio - they are all lovely countries and are all worth visiting. Despite visiting all these countries, my favourite places to visit was ... Read more

Went for this cruise because our party (5 people) had Two birthdays and an anniversary to celebrate. This cruise also had a good selection of ports. Not been on a P&O cruise before and was led to expect fine cuisine and great service. ... Read more

Just back from Oceana, cruised from Southampton to Malta. The embarkation day started with a coach pick up from Manchester airport to Southampton as we would be flying back from Malta because the ship will be relocating and based there ... Read more

Thought about it for years eventually took the plunge. Service from being picked up by the coach transfer to leaving the ship was great. Arrived at check given a card with a letter on then just wait until your letter was called, take the ... Read more

This is the second time we've opted for a long stay cruise on this ship. The embarkation and disembarkation procedure is first class. The ship is immaculately clean and every where you see bright, sparkling surfaces. We never look for ... Read more

We sailed on the Oceana to the Caribbean and America on a 35 night cruise and really had a wonderful time. Our first impressions of the Oceana was of a tired, older ship in need of a facelift, but if you weigh up the positives against ... Read more

Our first time on Oceana and we found it to be a bright and well decorated ship. We particularly liked the Atrium open area which extends through 4 decks in the middle of the ship with glass fronted lifts gliding efficiently up and down. ... Read more

Overall, this was a very enjoyable cruise. It was our first time on the Oceana, it was a little dated ( refit in November 2017 ) but this added to the charm of this lovely ship. Built in Italy in 2000 you could see the Italian influence ... Read more

We chose this particular cruise as it fitted in with other plans we have for 2017 and as we had not been on Oceana for many years, we thought it would be a nice change. We liked the itinerary. We went with another couple who are frequent ... Read more

We cruise a lot & don't normally write reviews but after reading so many poor ones about Oceana I thought I would do one. We picked the 35 night Caribbean and USA cruise on the itinerary. Have sailed Oceana before but as it was 2009 ... Read more

My wife and I were hoping for a special Christmas so splashed out on a P&O Christmas and New Year cruise. In reality we the cruise proved to be dull, underwhelming and not so very good value for money. To be fair to P&O the public ... Read more

We went on the Iberian cruise just prior to Christmas 2016 and had a great time. This was our second P&O cruise and we have also cruised with Cunard, MSC and Thompson. We arrived by coach at Southampton and the hall was not busy at ... Read more

We booked this cruise for the Morocco / Casablanca part of the itinerery which we did not get due to adverse weather conditions. This of course spoilt the whole cruise as we did not get what we were promised or paid for despite ... Read more

This is the second time we have been on this pre christmas cruise. It was a little shorter than last year at 12 rather than 14 nights and missed out Madeira but still incredible value for money at under £45 per night. The food ... Read more

This was our 1st cruise. The ship itself was beautiful and I saw no signs of rust or anything else that people have complained about. We had a midship balcony cabin which was small but adequate. First the good points. The crew were ... Read more

I'm going to try to offer a fair and realistic account of our cruise, always mindful of the fact that cost cutting has resulted in a cruise costing around £60 PPPN. We have cruised 7 times previously, of which one was aboard ... Read more

I booked this cruise due to the price P&O were offering which seemed a bit of a bargain. My mistake. Having now come home I see that the lower price is due to the many cutbacks P&O have made. I have traveled with them before and ... Read more
