Won't be my last time...

Sail Date: June 2011
Destination: Europe - British Isles & Western
Embarkation: Southampton
We had a great time on our first cruise holiday with our 11 month old son.

He loved the attention from the great staff and we loved the food and attention from the great staff. Nothing seemed too much trouble and even though we had the lowest grade cabin, we didn't feel any different from the more expensive cabins.

The facilities provided for children were great and we enjoyed the relaxed nature of the ship, not too big and not too small (at 77kt!) You could still find quiet areas of the ship for yourself even though there were 2500 people on board.

The ship is a little worn in some areas, but generally the fixtures are well maintained and they didn't detract from the enjoyment we had.

My wife wants to book again straight away and I am sure we will at some point. People we spoke to on the ship who had travelled with P&O on other ships said that Oceana had a much better feel to it than some of the bigger ships in its fleet.

We were not More dissapointed in our trip and had got what we thought was good value. Less

Cabin review: ODL305 Inside Twin with Shower

Space fine even with cot. Very quiet, but being high up meant we had a bit more movement in Bay of Biscay, up and down...
