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 ...

Returned on the 8th Feb from a 35 night cruise on P and O "Oceana" from the Caribbean , I wrote to the CEO of P and O some two and a half weeks ago by recorded delivery. Had absolutely no response. I e-mailed a contact there ... 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

A budget cruise at a designer price!! We are in our 40/50's and found the food to be worse than hospital food. Much worse than you could cook yourself. The ship is in serious need of maintenance, cleaning and decoration. It is a ... Read more

oceana is to say the least tired. Our balcony was rusty the carpet in the cabin stained and old and the bathroom tap had a bit missing. The wardrobe space is small and useless on a cruise of this length. The staff in the breakfast buffet ... Read more

This was our first cruise. So therefore we have nothing to measure it against. BUT, How disappointed we were with several areas of this cruise. The food provided was worse than school dinners at times, and in some cases unfit for ... Read more

My wife and I have cruised many times, mainly with Royal Caribbean and Celebrity. For a change, we decided to try P&O. We did not enjoy the cruise at all for the following reasons. The food in the main dining area was terrible and the ... Read more

This was our 4th Oceana cruise. Others were all on smaller ships which we prefer although this one was not overcrowded with the exception of the excursions.. Our biggest complaint is the extras. For the most part , they were all grossly ... Read more

We enjoyed our cruise but unfortunately there was a few problems that we encountered this time that put a bit of a damper on our holiday, we were disappointed as previously we had a lovely cruise on this ship. We noticed immediately a ... Read more

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

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

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
