Our cruise to Dubai and Arabian Gulf lived up to our expectations and more. As we were on P&O’s maiden voyage to this part of the world we were pleasantly surprised that everything went smoothly and as always customer enjoyment was paramount. Food, entertainment, staff and excursions were great and as expected. The ports visited were amazing and we would return tomorrow.
Oceana is our favourite ship but she is starting to show her age now and we think in need of a facelift. We had a mid-ship balcony cabin and although comfortable was in need of decoration. Walls were scuffed and the balcony needed painting ( rusty pipes and railings not pleasant when sitting and relaxing with a drink). Balcony doors could only be closed using brute strength as runners warped and covered in salt. Wardrobe door wouldn’t close and 2 drawers sticking badly. On c deck and corridor carpet desperate for a deep clean. Still, love the ship though so we ignore these inconveniences.
