We have always found the Oriana and P & O to be a pleasure in all aspects, attention to detail, crew, entertainment and food always exceptional, so we didn't have any problem re-booking another cruise.

As always everything was good other than the food, which looked o.k. but on the whole proved to be tasteless, especially the desserts which were bland and unappetizing, we came to the conclusion that all were brought on board frozen and dressed up daily.

The dinner menu has been cut back, there was always a choice of salads if you didn't fancy dinner, these were none existent, the only plus was we didn't gain any weight, this is a first!!! We will be trying other companies in the future to compare.

Cabin Review

Outside Stateroom with Window
Cabin EA C170
Good size cabin, robes and slippers provided, good views, quite location not too far from the lifts either way. Plenty of wardrobe space, the cabins are looking tired, not sure if they will be refurbished when the ship goes in for a refit in November
