Having taken a cruise 2 years ago on Oceana we made a decision never to travel with P&O again, however, as they were the only cruise company making this trip we had no choice and booked the Northern Lights Cruise on Oriana in March ... Read more

The ship is smaller than the other cruises we have been on and being all adults was a bonus . It does move and creak more than the modern ships and we did have a storm for a day and a half which was quite uncomfortable and let to things ... Read more

Few, if any other were offering a cruise to the Northern Lights when we wanted to go so we took a chance on an older & smaller ship than we usually consider. About us: Fussy & critical if needs be. Boarding: Southampton. As ... Read more

The Northern Lights cruise was one of our must do cruises. Embarkation was trouble free and we were soon onboard. We knew our way around as we have sailed on the Oriana before. Our cabin was on deck 9 aft. It had a perfect view of the ... Read more

You have to accept that Oriana is a ship and the sea and weather can determine many things. She is not a hotel as on land so before you book understand that ships float on water and things can get bumpy and leaks may occur and it really is ... Read more
