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

PRE TRIP We had toured the ship and 3 other P&O Cruises boats several months before and we were tres happy with Oceana because its interior is finished in a trad liner style with an excellent gentlemen's club bar and classy atrium ... 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

We sailed with P&O on the Oceana, leaving Southampton on 8th February (during storm Imogen) and returned on 14th March 2016. The ship is not too large and has reasonable facilities, with helpful staff. We had a balcony cabin on ... Read more

Cabin #8061 Everything came together on this cruise. This was our second cruise on Oceana. We boarded the ship 3:00 in the afternoon after taking a tour of Miami. We were surprised to find our luggage at our room within 10 minutes ... 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 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

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
