We choose this cruise as we wanted to see Greece & Croatia as not been before. We loved every port we visited, Mykonos was my favourite and the wife’s was Venice & Dubrovnik. The ships food was amazing. So much to choose from every night. The waiters looked after us with extra chips and veg & Ice cream every night. The headliners were the best I’ve seen on any cruise, we loved the killer queen & musical shows. Also north by northeast singers were really good. Around the pool was really busy on sun days but as I’d get the pool at 8.45 it was easy to get beds. After 9 it was hard to get one in front of the pool. Service for drinks was great and not long to wait. My favourites bar was winners with football on and the casino was great and wasn’t busy so always a seat. Le club was great for a dance and was in there most nights. Stayed open till 2 but you could get a drink in and stay till 3am. Peroni on draught was good and they had doom bar in big bottles which I like. Our kids 11 & 13 girls loved the kids clubs and soon made friends. The only tours we Done was In Dubrovnik the game of thrones walking tour. That was amazing but hard going as very hot and a lot of steps. But me and my wife enjoyed seeing all the locations and the views. Also in split we went on the KrKa waterfalls tour which we didn’t enjoy that much as it was a long day on the coach and very rushed so didn’t get to enjoy the walk in the park and not much time to have a swim. I love this ship as it’s a smaller one so not hard to get seats for shows and space in bars and casino. Would definitely cruise again on oceana as staff are friendly and like the less busy areas.

We have visited Malta previously and had the opportunity to spend some time in Valetta before the cruise.We found everything to be well organised with regards embarkation and disembarkation although Malta airport seems to struggle with the volume of passengers. We will be revisting Croatia in the future - enjoyed the shore trips and would like to see more. The ship itself was impressive and we had no complaints about the food and all of the staff were pleasant and helpful. Cabin was comfortable but a bit tight for space with suitcases etc. The rule about not reserving sunloungers could be more rigorously enforced as it took a few tours of the ship to find one that did not have a towel on it most of which remained unoccupied for hours or even for the full day. The entertainment provided by the Headliners cast was excellent - The London West End on the high seas. The cast speaking to members of the audience at the exits after each show was a nice touch - a very talented group! Read Less

My wife and I have cruised 1/2 dozen times. P&O, RCI, Princess, and Celebrity. We booked this cruise a couple of months back as an extra holiday this year. There were some poor reviews, negative comments like, old ship, bad smells, poor food, miserable staff. What a load of old rubbish people come out with. I’ve even read stuff about flight delayed. As if that’s P&Os fault. Or bad weather. (Our captain even diverted the ship to find us sun) I say to most of those people “Get a life” our flight was delayed 2 hours due to fog. I’d much would rather sit on an aircraft and wait than take a chance and take off. In fact an announcement was given on the aircraft saying not to worry the ship wouldn’t leave without us. The food was lovely with lots of choice. Did I like everything all of the time? Of course not. But it was well presented and most of the time suited my own taste buds perfectly. The staff in ALL of the restaurants were immaculately dressed. The tables were always clean and very quickly cleared away too. There was rightly, maintenance being carried out constantly to keep the standards high. I read reviews about Rule Britannia and such like being constantly played. I could hear it in the background occasionally but I certainly didn’t find it overpowering. There was differing music being played throughout the ship for everyone's taste. Once on a sail away union flags were given out and I can honestly say that everyone around the pool deck thoroughly enjoyed singing along to English, Irish, Scottish and Welsh songs waving their flags, as did other nationalities. The headliners shows didn’t do it for me but they worked really hard. I just felt that their singing skills were poor. Nevertheless I watched and sang along. The other entertainers I enjoyed. If you don’t do excursions as we don’t, do some research and do your own thing. Some ports in the U.K. are not very nice but, move away a little and there is often so much to enjoy. I’m sure that there are some genuine complaints, there are bound to be,,,,,,,do things ever go right at home all of the time, is your gutter and facia sparkling clean on your house? Nothing ever broken down? Blocked up? I dropped my luggage at Gatwick and it arrived outside my cabin door and on the way back, I left it outside my cabin and next saw it at Gatwick on the conveyor reclaim belt. So, to everyone I say, Ignor the moaners, chill, and do what I firmly believe P&O want you to do and will help you to,,,,,relax and have a lovely cruise. My wife and I sure did. Our cruise was a 7 Day on 4/10/18 From/To Valetta. Read Less

On the 9th day of our holiday my husband fell really ill.he had to be rushed in to Athens Hospital, he had 10 days in intensive care in all he spent 6 weeks in hospital. i would like to thank p&0 Oceana doctor for spotting the seriousness, as we thought he had heat stroke..turned out he had a gallstone blocking his bile tube completely he certainly would not have survived had it not been for the Oceana doctor and the greek doctors. also i would like to thank the lady who phoned me every day from p&o for 6 weeks while i was in Greece even sending magazines for me and a phone.. if i needed it!! even though my holiday ended long before i could fly home.she was a comfort to me being able to talk to someone english, so i would certainly holiday with p&o again. My holiday was excellent until it came abruptly to an end. Read Less

This was my first cruise and I wanted it to be in the Mediterranean which is usually fairly smooth. The facilities on this ship were really excellent. The cabins are well kept and the staff could not be more helpful. Both embarkation and disembarkation went very smoothly. Numerous staff were on hand at London Gatwick to assist and the flights and times were part of the cruise package. I was with two friends, and we went on shore to Monte Carlo (by tender) and also Corsica and Florence. All these trips were very easy although quite expensive. The single supplement meant we all paid almost double for the cabin but we had no interest in sharing. Dining was in a most attractive room with excellent staff. The entertainment was reasonable although usually of quite short duration. There were many activities during the day. We travelled as a group of three, and we had a table to ourselves for meals. In addition to the main dining room, there is an extensive buffet on the 14th floor, where one could get snacks, tea and coffee at all times. We will definitely be arranging a trip in the near future. Read Less

We have just had two weeks on the Oceana. I read a lot of recent reviews and a lot are very similar ... Charming ship, a little tired, wonderful staff but overall an absolute fabulous holiday. Sure you get the regular moaning minnies who complain they cant find a table in the plaza straight away or their cabin is too noisy but if you book on the saver fare option meaning P & O allocate your cabin where they want you to go, you do risk being put under a noisy lounge. What we take for granted is the very high standard of operation and services from P & O. Everybody knows their job and from the waiters to the room steward to the deck staff, they could all not be more helpful. There is still a problem with people reserving sun loungers but until P & O really start removing items after the 20 mins they that they say they will, this will continue to happen. My real only gripe is the Oasis Spa. The services they offer are great but the hard hard sell after for you to buy their potions and lotions put me off from having any more massages and treatments. Likewise my daughter found that there was only two hairdressers in their staff .... not enough P & O !!! The ports were a great mix, Split and Dubrovnik being the best for our taste, Venice is just too busy now and I know P & O had to find a replacement stop to replace Turkey due to security reasons but Sarande in Albania ?. Sorry but it would have been better to sail round and round. Cannot wait to go again! Read Less

It was a wonderful experience. We had been on 10 other Mediterranean cruises before, but this was by far the very best! We chose this cruise because of the interesting itinerary, but everything was just right, especially the friendly service with a smile on every face. We had already planned what to do at every site visited but modified our plans according to the excellent opportunities provided at each country. Embarkation and disembarkation could not go more smoothly. The ship was wonderful and the cabin most comfortable. Dining was always delicious and well presented, and the entertainment most pleasant, especially for the shows by Jon Courteney. We are an elderly couple and we found help every time we needed it. So much so that we plan to go on another cruise on the Oceana 0n the 28th September 2017. A huge THANK YOU to all staff on board Oceana for the state of the art of the presentation and service.
