4.0 Editor's Rating

We were on the Genoa to Venice 7 night cruise in May 2016. Never had such an efficient embarkation process, left Gatwick just after six in the morning and was onboard for breakfast. This gave us time to visit Genoa as well which we had ... Read more

We have just returned from our first P&O cruise on board the Oceana. I have to say that before we went I was a little disconcerted after reading so many negative reviews so I'm pleased to say that we found very little to be negative ... Read more

We chose the cruise for the destination itinerary, but was recommended P&O by a family member. The destinations did not disappoint and we thoroughly enjoyed each day on land. Our biggest cruise disappointment was the lack of any ... Read more

We have cruised many times with P & O, preferring Azura for Caribbean holidays, but decided to try a smaller ship, i.e. Oceana. The price was reasonable and as a seven night cruise was a good way of deciding whether we would like the ... Read more

On cruise with a friend for some early sunshine. Good price with spending money as part of deal. Embarkation was fantastic. From the moment we landed we were whisked through and on board by midday having a drink poolside. We then took ... Read more

We have just returned from a 7 night cruise on Oceana, sailing from Genoa to Venice and these are our thoughts on the total experience. We flew on BA scheduled flights from Gatwick, which worked out pretty well. Genoa airport is very ... Read more

We have been a on numerous cruises but the first on P and O. The places to visit and the ship look just right. Before we went we had read many negative reviews and were naturally concerned. All I can say I am not sure what cruise they ... Read more

I read reviews prior to going on Oceana and went with an open mind. From getting on the transfer bus to embark and returning to the uk we found the whole experience a joy to behold. The inside cabin A727 was ideal for us and the steward ... Read more

After a fabulous 2015 Christmas and New Year trip on Oceana scoring top marks in review categories we decided to go back to what was our favourite ship so far, however too much refit work going on around the ship, too many areas blocked ... Read more

This was a first cruise for my husband, and my second. We chose this cruise because the ports of call interested us; P&O's Oceana just happened to be the ship. I'd started reading these forums only after we'd pretty much decided to ... Read more

This was our first cruise with P&O having previously cruised with Royal Caribbean, celebrity, NCL and Thomson. We didn't read the reviews until after we had booked it and once I saw them I was expecting very little. The cruise was a ... Read more

Having read the awful reviews (stained carpets, bad smells, duct tape, bad food) I was really worried about my first ever cruise on Oceana. In fact it is the most beautiful ship- our cabin B753 was spacious, perfect unstained carpet, ... Read more

Our seventh cruise with P&O left us feeling disappointed and looking around for an alternative for next year. Little can be said about the embarkation process which were exceptional due to Oceana's late arrival. The check in staff did ... Read more

This cruise picked up where the last trip for the Riviera dropped off passengers two days early because of the noro virus. The ship was at this stage undergoing deep sanitation when we arrived for embarkation. People with spray bottles and ... Read more

I was hoping to find reviews after our cruise from hell showing that Oceania's Riveria had resolved the virus issues. Unfortunately not. It appears that the 2 sailings after ours (which was cut short by 2 days, so they could ... Read more
