A Life on the Oceana Waves

Sail Date: October 2011
Destination: Africa
Embarkation: Southampton
Hello. My wife & I and 26 year old son, have just returned from our second cruise on the P&O ship Oceana.We last sailed on the Oceana in November 2008 and found the service is almost on par with the QE2 which we still compare all our Cruise's with!.The Parking and embarkation was good at the Ocean Terminal.Luggage outside of rooms when we arrived.The inside cabins are plenty big enough for two people with wardrobes and draw space.Everything bright & clean.The ship is one of the most looking we have been on,very stylist.We were greeted by some of the staff from our last cruise who remembered us. One a very nice young Indian lady called Amandeep who was about the perfect Bar Waitress you could wish for, helpful in every way. The food and service in the Adriatic restaurant 2ND sitting table 190 was the best we have had for many years A1+
.The shows in the evening were very good, a mix of singing dancing etc. Martin Bell the war correspondent was one of the guest speaker's very More interesting man.
The Tours were much better organised then last trip, with people going straight to the coaches ashore most times rather then all meeting on board the ship.
The price of the tours was a fair price and good value for money.
The disembarking went well with no problems, car ready and waiting.
Will sail again on the Oceana !!.

The second port of call was Lisbon in Portugal.We have been to Lisbon many times and the love the place,plenty to and see,lots of local bus tours to go on. the people very friendly in a reserved way.P&O provided a Shuttle bus serviced to the centre free of charge. The weather was sunny and hot,perfect.

The first port of call was Vigo,in Spain.A very nice place,easy access to everything ashore. Oceana docked close to main area. We went on a Tour called Leisurely Vigo, a sight seeing trip around Vigo with a Stop for Tapas & Wine at the 5 star Hotel Los Escudos,lovely views over harbour.
