P&O Iona

Well, I was wrong – the new ship will not be called Olympia. As everyone knows by now, her name will be Iona. That’s a nice name, and it trips off the tongue, but of course there’s no echo of P&O heritage there at all. But never mind. P&O have issued a fly-around animation of […]

It’s no secret that P&O are getting a new ship in 2020. She’ll be enormous – bigger than Britannia – but that’s the way things are going. I did a couple of posts some while ago with the first news about the new ship. First, there was this post with the details that had been […]

I’ve been exploring options for cruises in the Arabian Gulf on Oceana, principally for February/March next year. One thing I was tempted by was the thought of mixing the cruise (10 nights) with another holiday destination – perhaps in south-east Asia (Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore) or southern Asia (India, Sri Lanka). Doing this would require making […]

P&O Ventura refit

I’ve had an email from P&O about the refit that their ship Ventura is currently undergoing at a shipyard in France. Having read it, I have to report that there’s nothing terribly exciting going to happen. Most of the work seems to be the fitting of new carpeting to all cabins and suites, plus a […]

As I said in my last post, P&O have announced that they are to get another big new ship. This will be delivered in 2022, and will be a sister to the earlier big ship which is due in 2020. As yet, we have no details of either of them. However….. P&O being part of […]

Another big new ship for P&O

P&O have announced that they are to get another new ship. This one will arrive in 2022, and will be a sister to the one that’s due in 2020. Malcolm Oliver spotted this news before me, so I think the best thing I can do is provide a link to the post on his blog. […]

Oriana cruise cancellation

I’m late with this story, but I’ve only just learned that Oriana’s planned 50 night cruise from 6 January to 25 February has been cancelled. P&O have instead arranged for Oriana to have some ‘essential maintenance’. I can’t find any real information as to what that maintenance will consist of, but there are suggestions on […]

Oceana in Hamburg

Above is grab from a webcam shot of Oceana, safely tucked-up at the B+V ship repair dry dock in Hamburg. I believe she arrived some time yesterday evening. Still no real information from P&O about any major work, so it does appear that the aspects of this refit that passengers will see will simple be […]

To Glass House or not to Glass House

Specifically, will Oceana’s Cafe Jardin be converted to the next Glass House? Oceana is going in for a refit in a few days’ time – as far as I can see she’ll return from her current cruise (E722) on 29 November and her next cruise is E725 starting on 17 December. Allowing for transit times […]

Our next cruise

Once again it has been so long since I last posted that I ought to apologise. For whatever reason, nothing has caught my eye, or my interest in the last couple of months. But I have finally managed to crank the old brain into gear, and produced this pearl. I posted some while ago that […]
