Oriana ticks all of those cruising boxes with fantastic entertainment, tasty food and state-of-the-art facilities, you'll want for nothing onboard this British gem.
With elegance being the most prominent characteristic on this traditional ship, you shouldn’t be surprised when you see the teak promenade and lido decks ideal for sunbathing and relaxing, and an Art Deco style that exudes sophistication.
Given Oriana’s size, it’s a great introductory cruise for first timers while many guests come back time and time again. Select your accommodation from a range of inside, outside or balcony cabins, and get ready to experience magical tours around the Mediterranean, Caribbean, Norwegian Fjords, Canada and the USA, the Atlantic Islands and more.
There are no gimmicks with this ship, it’s straight down the line great – with plenty of entertainment including pianists tickling the ivories in the glass-ceiling of the Tiffany Lounge and Crow’s Nest Bar located in the middle of the atrium. Meanwhile singers entertain in the Pacific Lounge, and you’ll find livelier music in the Lord’s Tavern sports bar. Hit the Casino for a fun game of roulette or black jack, or show off your moves at Harlequins, the ships largest dance venue.
Spend your days relaxing in the Oasis Spa and getting your hair done in the Salon. Or, if you’re feeling really active, you can begin your day early with fitness classes, short tennis, bingo, art classes, art gym, and sports courts – or just relax in the wood-panelled library and have a snooze next door in the Thackeray Room adorned with comfy chairs.
Be prepared to enjoy some delicious dinners in the evenings – alongside the two main restaurants onboard, The Oriental and The Peninsula, you can find offerings from Michelin star chef Atul Kochhar Sindhu – dubbed the ‘Master of Spices’ and known for adding British twist to his Indian food.
