The Oriana is one of P&O Cruises’ finest vessels combining sleek innovation with elegance, teamed with classical designs for a cruise experience of past and present. Serving as the longest ship in the P&O fleet as well as being the oldest of eight ships, Oriana remains as a renowned cruise-favourite. Oriana was famously named by Queen Elizabeth II and was purpose-built for long distance voyages and designed for world cruises.
All cabins on the Oriana are comfortable and complete with lavish furnishings, with plenty of space for you to enjoy your cruising experience. Many even come with a private balcony or large panoramic windows and the suites include extras like a whirlpool bath, butler service and a lounge to relax in.
Dining on board the Oriana is designed so that you can dictate the way you enjoy your meals, where you enjoy them and when. The Peninsular and Oriental restaurants are the highlight of dining on board, serving up traditional favourites in a flexible and friendly atmosphere. For a light and healthy option, Al Fresco is the ideal place to go, serving a Mediterranean menu in an intimate Italian-themed restaurant. There is also a number of Select dining options on board, like The Beach House which offers laid back dining with a coastal feel and international flavours.
Entertainment and Activities
Boredom is unthinkable on board the Oriana as there are so many different ways to keep yourself entertained. There are various bars where you can enjoy a drink in the evenings and get to know fellow passengers. Chaplin’s Cinema shows the most popular blockbusters, at Harlequin’s you can enjoy a night of dancing and if you’re feeling lucky then there is the Monte Carlo Club casino. Or for a nice, chilled out cruise away from all the hubbub of the rest of the ship, there is the library.
Health and Fitness
Enjoy the warm weather out on the promenade deck or take a splash in one of the three swimming pools complete with sun loungers. At the Oasis Spa you can get pampered with a massage and the gym allows you to keep fit while looking out at the wonderful sea view.
There is a relaxed atmosphere on board the Oriana and therefore casual attire is permissible except when having meals in the restaurants during the evenings when formal clothing is advisable.
As across the P&O Cruises’ fleet, you can expect to be treated to a top-class professional service with an on-board team of staff and crew who will endeavour to meet your needs with a 24-hour service. Each cabin features air-conditioning, two lower beds that are convertible to a queen-sized bed, hairdryer, a safe for valuables and tea and coffee making facilities all to make your stay as comfortable as possible.
Accommodation aboard the Oriana is more than just a hotel – it’s a place that you can call home during a cruise holiday of unforgettable destinations and activities. For a tranquil space to rest your head, an inside cabin is the perfect getaway with standard P&O Cruises features. For an economical way of travelling, you can opt for the spacious outside cabin, many of which feature a window or porthole. Floor to ceiling sliding glass doors will feature in the balcony cabin, where you can sit and relax while watching sweeping landscapes in utter bliss.
The charming Oriental Restaurant and the exquisite Peninsular Restaurant are Oriana’s two great dining rooms, both of which offer world-class menus with dishes from across the globe. The Oriental Restaurant takes its name from the ‘O’ in P&O (Peninsular and Oriental Steam Company) and caters for almost 500 people. Its understated elegance is accentuated by its bronze and gold decorations and expansive three-sided ocean-view windows.
Sleek and sophisticated, the Peninsular Restaurant combines classical designs with contemporary décor with an enticing menu serving delicious cuisine night after night, and let’s not forget the chocolate buffet!
