We had a lovely first cruise aboard the Oriana. The staff were all very attentive, especially in the main restaurant (Peninsular). With the freedom dining we were offered a choice of dining every day 2,4,6 or 8 tables, this worked very well for us meeting new people every night. The meals were fantastic in all the restaurants but especially the peninsular. The Conservatory was used during the day along with the Al Fresco restaurant, both self service and great. The Alfresco restaurant serves till 2.30 in the morning, with Hot chocolate and Horlicks on the menu. We had a seven port stop in Portugal, Spain and Canary Islands and loved every minute of it. We saw signs of repair as in painting on the ship, but apart from some slight rust marks it was fine (well come on it is constantly in a salt environment). I saw no curled carpets. The Cinema projector is overdue for updating and let down some great films, that we should have been able to see in HD All in all we enjoyed our first cruise and we felt everyone was there to help us enjoy our time.

Cabin Review

Cabin C258
The bed was comfortable and can be set as a twin or a king size, not massive but adequate room and storage good. We did suffer with a noisy cabin with the air conditioning, but left the radio on. Found out on the last day! that behind the mirrors in the bathroom were two large cabinets :-).Room always well serviced.
