As first time cruisers, we were looking forward to the hyped up cruise with p&o on the Oriana . Deluxe room very ordinary on C deck. Food at the main restaurants very average, with self service at the conservatory comparible to motorway service stations. Continental breakfast served in your room was extremely disappointing - so poor we had to leave it !! Al Fresco restaurant probably the better breakfast/ snack areas- still very 2*.Fortunatley we had booked a table at the Ocean Grill for our last night dinner which was 10/10. No complimentary water in your room- £1.00 a small bottle! Entertainment cheesy and downmarket! Painting Maintenance carried out on the upper deck which left a few cruisers with paint covering their outer wear- no attempt to stop passengers using these areas. Average age in the 60's.. All in all, very disappointing. Won't be in a rush to return!

Disappointing 1st cruise!
