Our First cruise on Oriana was 20 years ago in September 1985, the year she was launched. It was our first cruise ever, at that time to celebrate then our 25th wedding anniversary (and my birthday).

In 1985, ...

.....We stayed the previous night at the Holiday Inn close to Dock Gate 8 Southampton who do a cruise package of one nights stay, breakfast and up to 3 weeks parking (we paid for an extra night parking as our cruise was 22 nights) with complimentary taxi to the terminal...this cost less than the parking provided by CPS in the dock. We were informed by text message the day before the cruise that ...
