After travelling on Cunard & celebrity cruises very successfully on several occasions we decided to try P&O as we had heard that prices were reasonable in the bar etc. We subsequently travelled on The Oriana to the canaries in ... 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

I thoroughly enjoyed the cruise. It was a lifetime experience for me. The service was excellent, the cabin was excellent and the food was excellent. There was plenty of good entertainment, all for free. I would go again given a chance, but ... Read more

Our first cruise on 'Oriana' was fifteen years ago, and we were so looking forward to being aboard her again, in fact we were hoping that this Xmas cruise to the Caribbean would be wonderful, but it truly wasdn't. It was quite dispiriting ... Read more

Having read some really negative reviews after we had booked this cruise my wife and I were a bit worried that some of them may be accurate. No worries though, the rust bucket with a surely crew serving up the worst food and entertainment ... Read more

This was our first cruise on P&O and the last, in fact this ship has for the moment put me off cruising. The ship is scruffy and desperately in need of a re-fit or selling off. I find it hard to imagine it ever had any luxury about it, ... Read more

Firstly let me say we were so frightened after having booked this cruise last minute then read the feedback on here. We thought we were going on a shabby tired ship in need of urgent refit. Secondly, I dont think its any shock the P&O ... Read more

We were travelling from Southampton to Madeira and then into the Canary Isles. We had chosen a suite which was really nice, clean, spacious and even given the time of year we had plenty of opportunity to utilise it. Boarding was fine in ... Read more

We saw this 12 night cruise advertised.  The price was simply incredible and represented excellent value for money. Our only other cruise experience was three years ago on P & O's Arcadia. The itinerary was virtually the same as ... Read more

I have previously cruised with P&O once before but that was as a teen so I probably had different expectations to what I have now. I had read lots of the reviews on here and wasn't sure as to what to expect thanks to the amount of ... Read more

We wanted to spend some time with my brother & sister-in-law, they live near Bournemouth, we live in Canada so we thought a short cruise out of Southampton would be perfect. This ship is 19 years old and frankly should be scrapped it ... Read more
