We have travelled many times with P&O but this holiday exceeded our expectations in respect of service. We usually enjoy our cruises with P&O but found the staff exceptionally friendly on this trip and couldn't do enough for us. ... Read more

We read some less than shining reviews about Oriana and her crew so we wanted to set the record straight from our point of view! It's just our opinion but I hope it helps someone make a more balanced decision. We had a brilliant four ... Read more

SHIP INFO Oriana is an aged ship and this is very noticeable with a lot of the ship showing signs of age and disrepair -- but this was to be expected as she is an old lady, and in her day an obviously lovely ship. What we did not ... Read more

We have just come back from the most amazing cruise around the Mediterranean. Loved every minute. The ship is adult only and we were among the youngest aged mid 50s but I think that was because the trip was 18 days and most people only get ... Read more

Just returned from Oriana cruise to New Orleans. This ship has had more than her fair share of bad luck - indifferent weather in the Atlantic, hostile USA immigration at Charleston, engine fire at Miami, lost a port altogether (Key West) ... Read more

We have just returned from a P&O short cruise to Guernsey and Zeebrugge on the Oriana. A holiday didn't get off to a good start as the ship could not dock due to high winds and our trip was cut short by 24 hours. Our four night ... Read more

We went on this cruise specifically to see the total eclipse of the sun and since that was a natural phenomena I am pleased to say that it was great. However In almost every other respect the cruise was a disappointment. It was so poor ... Read more

This was our first time on the Oriana and, after reading some of the less positive reviews, we wondered if we'd made the right choice. Not to worry, at least where the condition of the ship was concerned: it was tastefully designed, ... Read more

There was no doubt this time – a January cruise on the Oriana is a great way to get rid of those winter blues. So, twelve days cruise on Oriana from Southampton with six ports of call in Portugal, Spain and Morocco. Check in was ... Read more

I think Oriana is feeling her age, at 20. OK we had some bad weather, but quite a lot of vibration from the engines/screws at anything over about 15Kts. Food- OK in the restaurant, but not as good as we had had before. I guess it is next ... Read more
