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 ...

Christmas on this cruise was a none event. Entertainment was very poor, some of the acts were excellent but most were below par. It was like Hi Di Hi at sea. The Carol service was more like a funeral, the best thing on Christmas day was ... Read more

Don't ignore the moaners. What they say is valid and it is your choice to believe them or otherwise. Make sure you are not taken in by P&O's TV and Radio advertising it's not as good as they would have you believe. Some things were OK, ... Read more

Embarkation was late and chaos. Cabin much smaller than anything we have ever had before and this was a balcony cabin. Food awful. 1st year catering students could do much better! Vegetables we almost raw - I know people do not like ... Read more

Booked this cruise because it fitted in with our holiday dates and included New Year's Eve in Madeira. A good holiday overall, but the ship and cruise experience left a few things to be desired. I hope that someone from P&O takes ... Read more

This cruise was booked as a transfer booking from an earlier cruise that had to be cancelled, whilst being able to transfer the booking it did mean we lost the little extras like free parking. Still retained the chosen dining option, and ... Read more

Embarcation & disembarcation were good. Ship looks tired. A few staff were excellent, however some were downright rude. Entertainment was not very good, but as advertised, so no real room for complaint! Menus are not up to cruise ... Read more

This was a reasonably priced cruise (10 nights £699 for a balcony guarantee including outward BA flight from Gatwick) so expectations could not be too high. Although good value for money we had too many niggles to be entirely ... Read more

Just about nothing went well on this cruise. I am a wheelchair user and we are always the last off the plane and a nice Italian lady came to push me through passport control and left me at the exit door where I was greeted (not) by P ... Read more

This was our first cruise and we did have a good holiday but the boat is worn. it fell below expectations. We have been to many 4/5 star hotels and if our room was like our cabin I would have asked to be moved. I read another review than ... Read more

After years of hearing about them, we decided on a short 7-day fly-cruise from Genoa to Venice. Very early Thomson charter flight from Gatwick (06:40) was a shock to the system but all went well and our bags were delivered from check-in to ... Read more

Negatives first. Oceana is not a new ship so make allowances. She shows rust streaks on the white paint that can make her look shabby when alongside newer cruisers. Inside she's been refurbished in places but a lick of paint and varnish ... Read more

First time with P&O and sadly the last. Been on Celebrity many times but agent suggested this cruise, seen the adverts and it looked good so gave it a go. We paid over five thousand for the rust bucket we sailed on Oceana. First ... Read more

Travelled from Edinburgh to Genoa with Titan airways. Once we checked in our cases we never saw them until they were outside our cabin. Both embarkation and Disembarkation were very efficient and quick. We had an outside cabin on deck ... Read more
