One last post this year, and unfortunately it’s about some no-shows.

I blogged some weeks ago about a couple of new books about P&O’s 175th birthday. The books were supposed to be published on 1 December, but unfortunately neither has yet made an appearance.

It’s also disappointing to record that P&O have still not updated the description and deck plans for Oriana on their website – she’s still described as ‘family-friendly’, and the deck plans still include all the children’s facilities. This is frustrating. I know we have new deck plans in the 2012 brochure, but I’m not sure they’re accurate (they must have been drawn at least nine months before the refit). If you look at the deck plans in the 2012 brochure you’ll see there are six new cabins, all balcony, at the aft end of D deck. However, if you look at the photo of Oriana that Pam Massey took on 19 December in Southampton after the refit, you can see seven cabins in that location: one (the aft-most) a window cabin, the other six balconies. Hopefully P&O will publish accurate deck plans soon.
