Yes, in two weeks’ time we shall be aboard Oriana, P&O’s 13-years old, medium-sized ship. It’ll be our first cruise with P&O and we are looking forward to it enormously. It’s just for four nights, and is completely port-intensive: we leave Southampton on Saturday afternoon; on Sunday we will be in Rotterdam, Monday is Zeebrugge, and Tuesday should be Guernsey. That last call might not happen, of course, as it’s a tender port and for some reason it’s quite common for captains to decide that the weather isn’t good enough to support tender operations. (We experienced this last September on Braemar; I blogged about it here.)

But I’m really looking forward to experiencing Oriana. In the years she’s been cruising she’s captured a great deal of support, and has also been very well maintained and upgraded – she had a refit just a couple of years ago, at which time a new signature restaurant (Oriana Rhodes) was added to her facilities. Here’s a link to P&O’s page about her.

I hope to blog from the cruise.
