34 Night ORIANA Sept /Oct 2011 to Caribbean and U.S.A.

Sail Date: September 2011
Destination: Transatlantic
Embarkation: Southampton
We took our first ever cruise (we usually fly to our holiday destinations), which was a 34 night cruise on the Oriana, to The Azores...Caribbean....Mexic....and U.S.A.

As far as hubby and me were concerned, this was a WONDERFUL cruise.

We had an outside cabin on F deck (5) with a picture window. The cabin was absolutely adequate for us and was kept spotless by Pedro, our steward. The towels were changed daily and the sheets every three days.

All the staff were first class and nothing was ever too much trouble for them.

We mainly ate in The Conservatory, as we hate dressing up so formal. The breakfast was amazing, with so much variety....lunch was always excellent too....evening meal was good, although a little repetative.

On board entertainment was mainly very good, with celebrities including Jimmy James (singer) and Roy Walker (comic). The on board singers/dancers did a fantastic job of entertaining us too, with a variety of shows. More

There was a very varied "things to do on board" programme, to keep you occupied, unless you wanted to lay on a bed on deck and catch some sun.

All in all, I think The Oriana was a lovely, comfortable and clean ship, with excellent staff and excellent facilities.

I can't say anything negative about the ship, the staff, or the holiday. Well done P&O, in our opinion, you got it all right. Less
