Oriana Cruise Review by The Dales
- Sail Date: July 2018
- Destination: British Isles & Western Europe
However we were pleasantly surprised, to find the ship, alot better than, what we had read, in the reviews.
It was the first time we had sailed on a smaller, adult only, ship. We loved the art deco design, of the ship,and the size of the ship. So easy to get around. Lots of different bars, and entertainment places.
Every area of the ship, was always, clean and tidy.We had an outside cabin (Deluxe Window), on A deck, which was lovely and clean, and plenty of space to hang all our clothes. Our cabin stewardess was a so friendly, she made us feel very welcome.
The food, and service, in the restaurant, and bars in the evening, were excellent.All the staff, in the restaurant, were friendly and helpful.
The evening entertainment ,was excellent too. Plenty to choose from, to suit all tastes.
Loved The Brit Tones and E Sarah Carter, and the man who sang, a mixture of Simon and Garfunkle and other songs, and played the guitar, in various bars, around the ship. We could not fault the Oriana, and would love the chance to sail ,on this ship again.
We sailed, all around Ireland, which was nice. It enabled us to see, different parts, of Ireland, Cobh, Dublin, Killybegs, and Galway.We only went on one shore excursion, to visit, Blarney castle, great morning out,which left us plenty of time to look around Cobh, in the afternoon, before sailing. All the ports had lots of excursions you could book, or you could just get off the ship, and do your own thing. Dublin and Galway, both had, city sightseeing buses, which is always a good way to see a city, and for getting around.

Plenty of space to hang clothes up,in the wardrobes, and lots of drawer, television, kettle, and tea making facilities,hair dryer in the room. Small table and settee, a very nice room.
Stewardess kept the room tidy and clean, and was always very friendly.

Cobh (Cork)Visited Blarney Castle and gardens. Nice short morning drive to the castle, lovely gardens, to walk around. Also stopped at the woolen mills, where there were lots differnet things you could buy to take home, and a restauraunt/bar where you could have an Irish coffee.
