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

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

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

We booked this cruise as we have been on this ship twice before. The ship is now in desperate need of a re-fit. On arrival our cabin floor had not been vacuumed properly and the was dirt and fluff evident. The bathroom basin and bath ... 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

Having been on Azura for our first cruise (bustle and the queues, lack of seats etc), we wanted to try a smaller ship and the Iberian destinations were the main interest. We were very pleasantly surprised with Oriana, having read the ... Read more

Indoor cabin which we find fine. Dark and quiet so a good night's sleep. Our second cruise. First was Celebrity, and was probably more luxurious but cost more. We enjoyed time out in the cinema, a different movie daily, 3 or4 time slots. ... Read more

We like cruising with P & O, but we did have issues with this cruise, mostly to do with the location of our cabin. We were on the lowest aft cabin deck (D) in a balcony cabin, and dined in the Oriental Restaurant, two floors ... Read more

We had an inside cabin for the first time, previously on other cruises we've always had a balcony. The cabin was ok, if a little cramped, but as usual with P&O there was plenty to do on the ship on sea days, and we spent a lot of time ... Read more

We wanted to complete Norway and the Northern Lights for sometime and after looking at various options we decided on a cruise aboard the Oriana would probably be the best solution. We are very independent travellers, and had some ... Read more
