I chose the Oceana because she was a medium size ship, so not too big for a first voyage, as I was travelling on my own. I did a fly-cruise holiday as I love flying and flew from Manchester Airport to Venice where I boarded her. The ... Read more

The itinerary was good with some varied and interesting ports. As usual some of the excursions were quite expensive and it is always advisable to try to book your own if possible. The reviews we read before the cruise did put us off a ... Read more

My friend and I selected this cruise based on dates and cost. Contrary to a number of the other recent reviews we were not disappointed and had a fantastic holiday from start to finish. We opted for the flight supplement and flew from ... Read more

This was a first cruise for my husband, and my second. We chose this cruise because the ports of call interested us; P&O's Oceana just happened to be the ship. I'd started reading these forums only after we'd pretty much decided to ... Read more
