Oriana A-Ok

Sail Date: August 2011
Destination: Baltic Sea
Embarkation: Southampton
The tours to shore available were really good and had a lot of fun on them, seeing famous sights and having a generally good time, the weather was not the best but it is the Baltics, we weren't expecting 40 degrees with palm trees!

The food available was not "inedible" or "vile" as some of the people here have mentioned, it was constantly available and of a good quality, the dining experience was very pleasant, good food, good company and some entertaining waiters.

The facilities for teenagers and children were excellent, with some of the most pleasant youth staff i have ever encountered who all the kids thought were legends.

The gym and pool and other health and relaxation facilities were also good but the one complaint we did see was a useless pedicurist, but if you're the kind of person who books a cruise based around the pedicurists then you have some deep underlying mental issues.

The cabin was so quiet and have never slept better, it was More very comfortable albeit with three of us in there it did seem a bit crowded.

We did not partake in the ships theatre shows but we thought the cinema was very good showing current and popular movies.

Overall this was a fantastic cruise and wish it did not have to end, for people reading this please do not let yourselves be put off by the other reviews and now that the Oriana is becoming a redone 18+ cruise it should be phenomanal. Less
