Oriana is one of the smallest cruise ships in the P&O Cruises fleet, elegantly combining classic design features such as teak decks and a tiered stern with delightful Art Deco touches. Exclusively for adults, she exudes refinement and luxury. Oriana’s signature features are a stunning atrium with a Tiffany glass ceiling and the Crow’s Nest bar.

Title: Sadness Summary: Went on Oriana for its last cruise. Did not even care where it was going just wanted to be on the only ship that was worth cruising on in great comfort . Do not have the heart to look at any other small boat as it will always be compared to the great lady.

Title: Sentimental Journey Summary: Just sailed on Oriana’s last and final cruise with P&O. We went up into the Artic Circle via Norway’s northern coast and the North Cape. Nearly everyone on board had cruised many, many times with her and we all thought – and I spoke/chatted to many fellow cruisers – that this was going to be something really special. Sailing on 22nd July – we crept out of Southampton – nothing to mark the final farewell/sailing....

Title: Fairwell Oriana Summary: We went on the Oriana to say goodbye before she disappears for good to China. We have sailed on her several times and most passengers were sorry to see her go and replaced by a ship close on three times her size. I feel the Americas have no idea that there is a large group of customers who prefer a smaller ship, even though they cost more. Big is cheap but not with everyone. Many...

Title: Final cruise on Oriana Summary: An emotional farewell to Oriana! Travelled high above the Arctic Circle on Oriana on her farewell cruise. We love this ship and will miss her dearly. The cruise was fantastic and the weather was superb apart from our visit to the North Cape when the mist rolled in. Everything on board from the food to the entertainment was perfect and P and O had organised a chance to reminisce over the past twenty four years...

Title: Last Cruise for Oriana Summary: The cruise to the fjords in Norway and up to the Arctic Circle and the North Cape was spectacular. It was a pity that the old ship was now past its sell by date and perhaps p & o have made the right decision to sell it. The views etc were brilliant with a cosiderable amount of sea life seen. The glaciers were probably some of the best sights tht can be seen anywhere and...

Title: Our last cruise on her Summary: We did our last cruise on Oriana to Iceland, she was and will always be one of our favourite P&O ships. so sad that P&O is replacing her and other ships like her with big ships .we liked the family feeling with staff and passengers .because of the size of the ship you all get to know each other .and it makes it feel like home from home. the food entertainment and mostly the staff...

Title: Oriana Cruise Summary: We had a cruise on Oriana starting 25 April and finishing on 11 May 2019. We were very happy with every kind of service including restaurants, food and shows. However,there are 2 points regarding our experience on Oriana. 1 – The sound level at nightly shows was very high and we do not understand why; we and others we have spoken to , have complained about the sound level in shows but for some reason...

Title: Our final trip on the Oriana Summary: We were keen to have one final trip on the Oriana as it had been a favourite of ours. We chose the Azores/ Canaries destination as it included both new destinations and previously visited ones we were keen to revisit. Overall a very enjoyable trip despite disappointing weather (temperatures were OK if a little cooler than most were hoping for and some cloud and rain at a couple of ports) which gave a rough few...

Title: Marred by the weather!!!!! Summary: Although Oriana is ageing the ship provided a comfortable and delightful experience. Entertainment good especially the Headliners, Classuic Duo ( cello/piano) , Magician, 4Tunes, Samantha Jay. Comedienne poor also the Motown very poor. Good selection of films. Staff as ever very helpful and friendly, Food good, Biggest problem was the weather over which there was no control which was surprisingly poor for the Canaries. Disappointment were the excursions which I felt were not worth the...

Title: Bad weather Summary: The trip was ok apart from the weather as only had 1 day sun in canaries/azores for 16 nights cruise. Very choppy waters and the aging small ship Oriana she struggled through to her destination especially as the stabilisers had not been deployed (we later were told that this saves fuel) as would have held the fleets fastest ship back

Title: Sorry to see her go Summary: Fourth trip on Oriana and will be sad that when we cruise again (hopefully next year) it won’t be on Oriana. OK one or two things could be better – for example the cinema as the films often a little out of sync and a little out of focus too at times – but overall the ship is great (beautiful in fact) and the staff absolutely brilliant. This time we couldn’t get a cabin on...

Title: Sorry to see you go Summary: The Oriana has been a firm favourite for both new and especially long travelled passengers (guests). Still not used to the term ‘guest’. It is with great sadness that after 24 years of loyal service she is leaving P & O. I sincerely hope she is as appreciated by her new owners and guests as much as past and present passengers. The friendliness and efficiency of the whole staff (crew) have been excellent every time...

Title: Fun in the sun Summary: Staff were all helpful and cheerful. The cabin was clean and comfortable. Entertainment was disappointing as it consisted of shows we had seen many times and acts with an unaltered format. Shame Oriana is going. So many people love it.

Title: The Atlantic crossing. Summary: We left Southampton on 22nd of February 2019. The channel was quite bumpy while we slept. Next day the sea became very rough and turned into a force 9 gale for 7 days. There was a lot of banging and crashing and sleep was difficult. It sounded as if the cabin was going to fall apart. We were unable to go on the decks but plenty of activities during the day. Several passengers benefited from...

Title: North Atlantic and Caribbean cruise Feb/Mar X903 Summary: Overall a rather disappointing cruise (for the money spent) but with one redeeming feature. The North Atlantic did its best to stop us getting to Bermuda and indeed we took seven days rather than six. Unfortunately, this resulted in a rearrangement of the itinerary and we missed out Grand Turk, which was one reason for choosing this trip. Also, a week before sailing we were told that the ship had been refused to refuel at...

Title: P & O are losing it Summary: Bermuda and back seemed a good idea with new calls for us at Bermuda and Grand Turk and a visit after many years to Nassau. A few days before sailing we were informed that we would now miss Nassau as on that day as it was full! but call instead at Freeport. A bad crossing weather wise meant we were late into Bermuda but the two-day stay was persisted with even though the second day...

Title: Disappointing in a number of ways Summary: Oriana Caribbean cruise x903 22/02/19 – 22/03/19 The cruise did not start well with a letter arriving before we sailed stating that we would be calling at Freeport rather than Nassau. We had believed that itineraries were organised two years in advance so this was a surprise. The perception among the passengers I spoke to suggested this was more to suit P&O logistics rather than the passengers. The ship had supposedly had a recent makeover...
