Having used P&O before we chose this cruise because of the original advertised itinerary. A very important change was made deleting a port stop near Ephesus Turkey (supposedly because of the political situation in Turkey) and ... Read more

Bit harsh, but it got your attention. Ship is fine, some of the waiting staff are very blunt and do not appear in the mood to assist. The entertainment staff are good, trying their very best to keep everyone going. Bingo, Information ... Read more

We thought this was a 4 star floating hotel? No not at all. This is not the life. Don't believe the adverts. Dining was slow. My wife quickly deduced through inquiry that P&O had reduced the number of waiters so that each one left ... Read more

This was our 3rd cruise on Oceana and yes she may be a bit tired and in desperate need of some new, comfortable seating, but we love her and she's always spotlessly clean. The waiters and stewards are welcoming and friendly as is Captain ... Read more
