Oriana Cabins

Oriana has 941 cabins divided into five categories. In total there are 611 outside cabins, 130 with balconies and including eight suites and mini-suites, and 330 inside cabins. Eight cabins are designed for disabled passengers and there are two inside single cabins.

Cabins are located on A through to F Decks. The inside cabins, and their outside counterparts with windows (portholes on E and F Decks) are a relatively compact 150 square feet and many have small bath tubs as well as showers, which is another nod to British tastes. Deluxe balcony cabins are 220 square feet with a 30-square-foot balcony, and there are also EA grade cabins in this category with a picture window rather than a balcony. Mini-suites are 340 square feet, with a 75-square-foot balcony, and the suites measure in at 420 square feet, with a 92-square-foot balcony. The two singles are only 1ft 2in narrower than double berth inside cabins so are perfectly adequate for solo travellers who probably wish there were a few more of them.

The most spacious cabins are located on B Deck with the eight suites situated on each side of the ship close to the forward lifts and stairwell and surrounded by mini-suites. Perks in suites include an inclusive but optional butler service, mineral water, flowers, Champagne and chocolates on arrival, coffee machine, whirlpool bath, bathrobe and slippers and daily canapes. Excluding butler service, there are similar extras in the mini-suites.

Cabins have a classic rather than contemporary decor and a restful blue colour scheme is used throughout; the carpets and curtains again echo the feel of a country house hotel. I was very pleased with my deluxe balcony cabin, where the bedroom and living areas could be divided by thick curtains. In common with the suites it had a very airy feel with floor to ceiling windows leading to the balcony where the two reclining chairs on the balcony provided enough room to stretch out, although the wooden table would be too low for a full room service meal. I liked extra touches such as an Atlas and binoculars, also provided in the suites. The television featured a reasonable selection of English-speaking news channels and films. A welcome sight for British passengers is the kettle provided in all cabins, with biscuits topped up daily. All cabins are air-conditioned and also include a radio, telephone and hairdryer. It was good to see plugs available near mirrors.

Bathrooms in all categories are well lit and with ample mirrors and include generous 100ml bottles of The White Company shampoo, conditioner and body lotion, P&O branded soap and a fixed dispenser of The White Company gel in the shower, where there are curtains rather than glass doors.

Small when you take the queen size bed option but very clean and comfortable with lots of space for clothes. A good TV (not that you get time to watch it) which plays the ships radio. Small but very powerful shower and sofa just big enough for two ... Read more
