P&O Cruises flagship vessel, Oriana, proudly sits as the largest adult only P&O Cruises vessel and holds the title of the fastest yet oldest ship in the established fleet. Christened by HM The Queen in 1995, she originally hosted families, however after her multi-million facelift in 2011 she emerged as the adult only ship loved by British cruisers today.

Passengers can enjoy a celebration of P&O’s traditional British roots throughout with signature features such as her three tired stern decks, Tiffany glass ceiling atrium and warm wood paneling creating a sophisticated country club atmosphere.

Public areas are refined and varied. Anderson’s Bar offers a stylish setting for a drink before or after dinner, whilst Lords Tavern sports bar is perfect for a more casual, cosy pub feel and there is no better place for vino with a view than in the Crows Nest Bar. A spa has replaced what was previously the children’s area and a further 3 pools and 4 whirlpool spas sit within the elegant teak promenade.

Making use of her larger size, Oriana offers a great selection of dining options

The Oriental Restaurant – One of the two main dining venues onboard, guests will enjoy the comfortable and elegant settings while gazing out at ocean views through the huge windows. Tuck into a menu filled with beautifully crafted dishes.

The Beach House – Situated on the Sun Deck is the relaxing Beach House which provides great views across the ship while you dine on a broad variety of tasty dishes. The Beach House menu includes burgers, hot dogs steaks, jacket potatoes and much more.

Peninsular Restaurant – The second of Oriana’s top quality dining venues has an enticing menu that will tempt you back every night. Enjoy superb cuisine and a tasty chocolate buffet.

Conservatory – Take your pick from the delightful buffet on the Lido Deck, serving breakfasts, lunch buffets, afternoon tea & coffee, plus themed buffet dinners. Look out at the charming coastlines as you sail along through floor-to-ceiling windows.

Alfresco – The informal Mediterranean offers a range of mouth-watering speciality dishes from pizzas and sandwiches to healthy snacks and salads. Spectacular sea views make every meal here a special one.

After the sun goes down the lights come up, Oriana hosts an array of sparkling entertainment, from West End style shows in the Theatre Royal, to intimate performances in the Pacific show lounge and bar.

Harlequin’s is the largest and most popular nightspot onboard, and is an excellent venue for ballroom dancing during the day time and disco dancing during evenings. Fitted with the latest sound and lighting equipment, be sure to take a whirl across the wooden sprung floor. Watch the wheel spin on the roulette table as you cross your fingers, play a hand of black jack or test your poker face at a game of Three Card Poker at Monte Carlo's Casino.

Chaplin’s Cinema is the place to be to relive your favourite old classics or enjoy the latest blockbuster releases in the comfortable 200 seated venue. Specifically created to meet British tastes, you can enjoy the best of British talent all in one place in the knowledge that the comfort of your stateroom is just moments away.
