Oceana

A ship with glamour and a sense of fun

Oceana, formerly Princess Cruises' 77,000-ton Ocean Princess, joined the P&O Cruises fleet in November 2002.

It coincided with the retirement from service of the company’s smallest cruise liner, Victoria, and was in response to continuing growth and substantial future prospects for the UK cruise market.

Oceana is a lively and glamorous cruise liner full of personality. Her impressive atrium, adorned with palm trees, creates that holiday feeling as soon as you step on board. With deck bars, pools and many balcony Staterooms, she is the perfect cruise ship for sunny climates.

Her wide range of entertainment and facilities appeal to all ages. You can play tennis in her sports court - housed in her funnel; unwind in her whirlpool spas; try your luck in the casino; and dance the night away in Le Club.

Dining on Oceana offers great variety and flexibility. From fine five course meals in the main restaurants, to freshly grilled dishes under the stars there is something for every occasion.

David Dingle, the then managing director of P&O Cruises, said at the time of her arrival: “In Oceana, P&O Cruises gains an imaginatively-styled ship, full of innovation and with a glamour and sense of fun all of her own. She will be a natural complement to the contemporary Aurora and classic Oriana.

“There is no doubt that the 2000-built Oceana will enhance further the quality of the fleet. Like Aurora she offers a higher ratio of balcony cabins for added passenger privacy while flexible 24-hour dining is just one of a wider range of passenger facilities.”
