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 […]

This may well be old news, but here’s a link to a page on the P&O website showing some results of Oriana’s recent refit. I must say, the results do look attractive. I could feel tempted… Of course, she’s been back in service for about month now, and has completed a couple of cruises in […]

Well, I was a few minutes too late to grab good webcam shots of Oriana leaving Hamburg – the one above is the best I could manage. But the important thing is that she is on her way back to Southampton where she’s expected just after midnight on the 15th so her two-night cruise starting […]

Here’s a webcam image taken just now (nearly 10am, 28 November) of Oriana and Black Watch in dock in Hamburg – Oriana on the left and Black Watch on the right. Here are a couple of links to other posts I’ve done about the refits to these ships – Oriana’s here, and Black Watch’s here. […]

Oriana 2016 Refit

By now pretty much everyone will have received their brochure from P&O or read about this online, so I’m a bit late to the party. My excuse is that I’ve been away on holiday all week, at Salcombe which seems to be a place where they haven’t quite got hold of this ‘internet’ thing yet. […]

Oriana 2016 Refit

Oriana is due for a refit this December. This will be between the conclusion of cruise X620 on 25th November (34 nights to the Caribbean and the southern United States) and X623N (a 2-nighter to Zeebrugge) on 16 December. Note that the subsequent cruise is listed with an ‘N’ number, suggesting that it’s a New […]

Oriana NOT for sale

Original post: This webpage has been spotted. As the original observer has commented, “Sad day if true…”. However, response has suggested that this may just be a ‘trawl’ – the brokers put up a page for a ship which they think might be available put a suggested price tag on it, and if they get […]

Problem with Oriana?

The image above is from a webcam in the Port of Miami – you can see that it’s times at 06:23, and it was taken this morning. That’s a bit of a surprise because Oriana was supposed to be at Key West today (19 April) having visited Miami yesterday. At the moment I can’t find […]

This is Oriana in Stavanger, about 12:15 today. She arrived there between 9:30 and 10 o’clock this morning, about 3 hours or so late – not bad, given that she left Southampton almost 12 hours behind schedule yesterday. Here’s a link to the streaming webcam from which  I snatched this image.

Oriana late away from Southampton

I posted the other day about Oriana returning several days early to Southampton because of mechanical problems – the problems were to be fixed while she was in port. I see that she has now left on her next cruise (to Northern Norway, I believe) but she departed Southampton at around 4am this morning instead […]
