4.0 Editor's Rating
The 77,000-tonne, 2,016 passenger Oceana may not be the largest or fanciest in P&O's fleet, but its contemporary vibe is attractive to both the new-to-cruising younger set as well as veteran cruisers. For ...

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

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

I was very excited to go on this cruise. We had been on several other cruise lines and this was billed as pure luxury. I was curious to see how much better they were then previous lines we had enjoyed. To my surprise this was not as ... 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

Following major surgery in 2011 we changed from long haul flying and first started cruising in May 2012, and solely with P & O, sailing on Arcadia, Aurora, Adonia and Britannia, so this cruise was our eighth with P&O company in ... Read more

This was only our second cruise and the first with P&O. It was perhaps a little adventurous to do a 35 day cruise when so relatively inexperienced but absolutely no regrets. We took a "select price" fare which for the extra ... Read more

The main purpose of taking this cruise was to escape January in the UK and this it did although we were repeatedly told that it was the worst crossing weatherwise for many a year. On the outward journey we experienced very rough seas with ... Read more
