The Aurora is a very comfortable mid size ship and very much the sister to the Oriana. Great curved stern which is no longer the style on more modern ships. Food is fine, not 5 star but standard acceptable with good size potions in dining ... Read more

The ship was very stable, all public areas, of which there are quite a few, were clean at all times. Some of the public toilets were not kept clean at all times and some even with soap missing. Breakfast and dining in the free dining ... 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

We chose this as it was available! We thought P and O was a reputable company. The Oceana itself is very tired, and desperately in need of upgrading and modernising. Our first impression on embarking showed it to be dark and old ... Read more

Unlike some I didn't experience any poor service at all. In fact I preferred the style compared to American ships I've been on which I tend to find the staff too intrusive. Similarly the embarkation and disembarkation went very well indeed ... Read more

Fabulous cruise. Service and food was great. Great entertainment. 1. They need to sort out spaces for wheel chair people and mobile scooters, to sit in the theatre, as they blocked the emergency exit most nights on the right hand side. ... Read more

We chose this ship and cruise as we have had excellent holidays with P and O in past few years. Also we chose to sail from Southampton instead of a fly cruise as my husband is unable to fly due to a medical condition. We had previously ... Read more

First time on the Arcadia. I wasn't sure if I would like it or not as there was no Atrium. It took a few days to work out where things where. I will definitely choose the Arcadia again. Lifts on the outside were great. Everyone was so ... Read more

We have cruised many times with P & O, preferring Azura for Caribbean holidays, but decided to try a smaller ship, i.e. Oceana. The price was reasonable and as a seven night cruise was a good way of deciding whether we would like the ... Read more
