Cruise Ships


Classic superliner with a warm and welcoming personality

Oriana became the modern face of traditional cruising at its very best when she arrived in 1995. From the quayside, her classic lines draw admiration wherever in the world she has sailed.

On board, her lavish interiors and remarkable spaciousness create a mood of calm, relaxed elegance. Her design helped create an atmosphere epitomising the romance of cruise travel.

And a multi-million refit in 2011 introduced speciality restaurants, including Marco Pierre White’s Ocean Grill, new decor and additional cabins, as well as converting her into an adult-only environment.

Her days sailing for P&O Cruises are numbered, however, as she will be leaving for pastures new in August 2019.

As the first of P&O’s superliners designed and built for the British market, Oriana has combined maritime tradition with the latest nautical technology - to dazzling effect. Large enough to traverse the world’s oceans with ease, she nevertheless retains a warm and welcoming personality.

Oriana of P&O Cruises

Many of her venues become firm favourites. Coffee and chocolates in Tiffany’s. Musicals in the Theatre Royal. Pre-dinner drinks in the Crow’s Nest. Late nights in Harlequins.

She also offers dining to suit your every mood. You can savour fine cuisine in one of her main restaurants, opt for a bistro style menu in the Terrace Grill or sample the contemporary British dishes of Gary Rhodes in Oriana Rhodes.

Sail with her to the Mediterranean or across the world and she will become for you, as she has for thousands of passengers, a lifelong favourite.
