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. 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.

Cabin Review

Cabin F
We had a cabin on F deck.
Quiet.
Shower room/ Toilet adequate, but a little small
Living area, no problem
T.V. a bit small.......also needed D.V.D. player
Public address system needed in ALL cabins too
Advertised as having a radio in cabin, but there wasn't one

GENERAL.....VERY NICE CABIN, KEPT CLEAN, WITH REGULAR CHANGES OF ALL LINENS. NO PROBLEMS AT ALL.
