Having taken a cruise 2 years ago on Oceana we made a decision never to travel with P&O again, however, as they were the only cruise company making this trip we had no choice and booked the Northern Lights Cruise on Oriana in March ... Read more

The ship is smaller than the other cruises we have been on and being all adults was a bonus . It does move and creak more than the modern ships and we did have a storm for a day and a half which was quite uncomfortable and let to things ... Read more

The Northern Lights cruise was one of our must do cruises. Embarkation was trouble free and we were soon onboard. We knew our way around as we have sailed on the Oriana before. Our cabin was on deck 9 aft. It had a perfect view of the ... Read more

We have not cruised with P&O since a rather poor experience on Ventura some years ago but this cruise restored our faith in the company and we had a wonderful cruise to see the Northern Lights. The Oriana is an excellent ship and ... Read more

Totally brilliant Northern Lights cruise, surely no-one can have anything negative to say about it? Our first time on Oriana, having previously sailed on Aurora, Oceana, Ventura and Britannia plus a couple of non P&O ships. Nice ... Read more

You have to accept that Oriana is a ship and the sea and weather can determine many things. She is not a hotel as on land so before you book understand that ships float on water and things can get bumpy and leaks may occur and it really is ... Read more

The ship is looking tired and is still noisy at times; especially when docking or leaving port. We booked this cruise because we wanted a JOLLY CHRISTMAS holiday. What we actually got was P & O's care home at sea ! There was ... Read more

P&O Cruise Ref: X620. If I could give this ship 0/5 for a review I would, but as I can't I'll have to rate it as 1/5. The ship was due to go into port for a re-fit straight after this cruise & to be honest I wouldn't bother ... Read more

Check in and disembarkation The actual check in went very smoothly, which is more than can be said about the security area, great inconsistencies, some passengers were asked to remove their belts, others were not. When my belongings ... Read more

We chose this cruise as the ship was smaller than some and we had cruised before on Oriana and we enjoyed it very much last time. However this time the food was very poor, service in the restaurant was 3rd rate and most of the staff ... Read more

Your luggage is taken from you as soon as you arrive at the port for delivery to your cabin which is great. Embarkation was reasonably efficient. No compulsory hand sanitization though which was rather surprising. Cabin (inside, deck 10 ... Read more

This was a two-night trial cruise to Bruges for us (our second ever cruise and first with P&O) in advance of a longer cruise later in the year. We upgraded to a mini-suite to see what the quality was like. We had a very mixed ... Read more

Our embarkation time was 1430 but we arrived a bit early to find chaos in the embarkation hall that was bursting at the seams. The IT system had been down since 1130 and no one was moving. They eventually decided to embark us and for ... Read more
