Very good cruise to Guernsey by SandBWatts

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

All four of us really enjoyed our short cruise with P&O. It was our first cruise with you and enjoyed it so much that we have already booked another cruise for next year! We loved the ship and there was plenty to do. The food was delicious, also the cocktails!

Lovely cruise by janton

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We enjoyed the cruise overall, despite suffering some seasickness due to the rough weather. In hindsight, March was probably not the best time to travel on a Canaries cruise and we would prefer to travel to the Mediterranean if we ever did another cruise.

Fantastic Cruise to the Canaries aboard Oriana by libbysmum61

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

This cruise was to celebrate my 60th Birthday. Apart from the first two days which were a little bit rough, we really enjoyed the cruise. We had some wonderful table companions for dinner and as a whole, all the passengers were a delight to be on board with.

Did a two day cruise... by gymmonster

Sail Date: /

Did a two day cruise to Belgium on 1 December 2017. First time on a smaller ship and thought it was excellent, really liked the layout and decor. The Spa was dis organised chaos which wasn't good there had been a crew charge and people were finding their feet, the MDR was slow in servicing whilst Sindu was an oasis of calm. The excursion to Bruges was well worth doing enjoyed the market there. There were unfortunately a few intent on putting the booze into cruise and this is probably why the crew were miserable, we were in Tiffany's and one lad was swearing at the staff, no need for it. But apart from that, great ship loved it and we would go back on her but for a longer cruise.

My first time on Oriana... by Fjorder

Sail Date: /

My first time on Oriana having previously travelled on Azura. Lovely ship,lovely cabin although they need to do something about their loos. Great shower. A much smaller ship than Azura but still lots to do and places to sit and have a drink etc.Good entertainment. Food very good but the freedom dining experience was oh soooo slow and we felt the crew all looked a tad unhappy. And where was the Captain? He gave one announcement on leaving and that was it. We found other passengers had similar experiences. All in all though we enjoyed very much.

Not the best P&O experiences by Fjorder

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Have only previously been on Azura which was a better experience by far.One got the impression that because this was a short cruise no one really cared including the Captain.Bit of a get on with it free for all.

This was our first cruise... by mariabrookes1

Sail Date: /

This was our first cruise on x720 to Amsterdam. It was delayed by 24hrs but well compensated. Loved the ship the food and the destinations but sadly the bar staff really let the cruise down. It would take half an hour from ordering your drink to receiving it. It would then take them half an hour to fetch your cruise card back which would be time to reorder your drinks. Going on Azura in January let's hope it's better on board her.

Sadly shortened but otherwise top class short break. by cynandstu

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Great value, so much stress free fun in a few days. Perhaps not long enough to get the full cruise experience but a great introductory or short break for anyone.

Not long been back from... by sgreen01

Sail Date: /

Not long been back from the delayed x720 loved the ship although there were noticeable vibrations we put it down to her being an older ship. Ports we stopped at were Amsterdam and Brugge both very interesting places,was a tad disappointed we didn’t stay overnight at Amsterdam as previously planned and felt a little rushed on our visit which couldn’t be helped we felt P&O dealt with the delay very well in the time they had and compensated generously too. Definitely will be booking this trip again x

Brilliant Birding Beano by Birdwatcher

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

An excellent cruise with great weather, with a noteable exception in Venice. Even BoB was calm with just a little swell both out and back! Want to do it all over again....tomorrow....no chance.

Returned last week from a... by pjd8283

Sail Date: /

Returned last week from a cruise around the Emerald Isle. Weather was hit and miss, the seas were choppy to say the least off the west coast of island, and personally they are the only two non-positives I can think of about this cruise. My first time on Oriana and was impressed. Newly refurbished she looked stunning. Very light and oozed warmth with friendliness. I do prefer the medium sized ships in general. As an adult only ship the atmosphere is different, from oceana say. For me it was perfect, my partner found it a bit quiet. I'm sure if the weather had been different the atmosphere may have been a bit more upbeat, but just little things like on the oceana if you want music round the pool, you go midship, if you want peace, you head to the back. Oriana is peaceful all over, which for me is perfect. Gorgeous promenade. Entertainment was very good. Brit tones and an Irish comedian were excellent, and I must say, the headliners were AMAZING. I had become a little bored with previous headliners performances but these guys were brilliant. Food was excellent. Friendly service in the MDR, with (although repeated from previous cruises) well cooked and presented food. With a nice feel in the restaurant, it didn't feel too busy or rushed. The buffet was very good. No problems finding a table (we only did breakfast there) Al fresco was very sweet, and something different and all in all very nice. Sindhu and the beach house (specialty restaurants were absolutely amazing. The cabin - we were on a deck beneath the gym. Lovely airy cabin with a nice big window. Although it was the smallest cabin we'd stayed in, it felt adequate and comfortable and we weren't tripping over each other. Bathroom had a bath! And a shower curtain. I think our cabin was under the weightlifting area as every now and again we would hear a thud, like someone dropping a dumbbell. This was not frequent though, no noise from treadmills etc. Bars were lovely and friendly, I love Andersons. A real classy touch. To sum up, I loved this ship. She has overtaken the oceana at present in my favourite ship league table. I would jump at the chance to go on her again. The oceana is having her refit in a few months, and she may reignite our spark when we head back on her in march, but for now, this old gal is my favourite.

Sail Date: /

Oriana,,,,,nice little ship, food ok, entertainment was under par. P&O could have done better with the entertainment side of things in a 19 day sail. Cabin was compact but then how much time do you spend in the cabin, decks where clean, all staff where excellent,I The ship must of been good we've booked again for May 18.
