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 because we had sailed on the Oriana 3 years ago and enjoyed it immensely, we had not been to Guernsey, Scotland or Ireland before so this was the cruise for us. We were not disappointed, embarkation was pretty ... 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

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

We have travelled on this ship before so we were quite pleased to see that she is now adult-only and that a three-week itinerary was available in the school holidays. We were a little concerned that standards would have dropped, as we had ... Read more

I chose this cruise because of the itinerary and the dates. Some of my friends said to me ''oh you are not going on that old tub'' so I did not have high expectations. However, on boarding the ship I found it to be better than I ... Read more
