Oceana 4 night mini cruise
Destination: Europe - British Isles & Western
We arrived at the port by taxi, having booked a an overnight stay and park at a local hotel, at 11.45am and were on board enjoying lunch at 12.20pm. The Plaza buffet area was pleasant, well laid out with a good choice of food and no problems in finding a table throughout the cruise.Far more important from my point was their enforcement of the use of hand gel at every point of entry into a dining area and when entering the ship. This was so different from the chaos of Ventura. More
Our cabin was a balcony on deck 10 (B deck) which was rather smaller than other cruises I have been on but clean and acceptable.
We choose freedom dining in the Ligurian restaurant for dinner and never had to wait to get a table for 2. The food, whilst not what it used to be in 2006 when I last sailed on P&O previous the disastrous Ventura cruise in May, was so much better than Ventura. Drinks service in the bars was efficient and every member of staff was helpful and smiling. The entertainment was good with the comedian/ventriloquist one of the best I have ever seen.
I can only conclude that Oceana must be a very happy ship which is much better run than Ventura and without seeming to snobby attracts a better type of client than Ventura. On this experience I will consider P&O again but only on selected ships Less
Cabin review: ABB614 Suite with Balcony and Bath/Shower
Cabin overall quite small quite small but acceptable with small balcony and bathroom. Would have like more room in bathroom difficult to dry yourself after shower without banging elbowsRead All Suite with Balcony and Bath/Shower (AB) Reviews >>
