Not Christmas

The cruise was advertised as Christmas and New Year, but there was no atmosphere for either. The decorations looked as if they had been bought at Poundland not at all what we experienced on our previous Christmas ...

This was only our second cruise, the first being on Oceana in July 2013, and we did enjoy it, Oriana may not quite have the 'bling' of Oceana but she is elegant and you do get a bath in your cabin and it's good to ...
