Here’s a follow-up post to the earlier one about P&O’s Oriana leaving that company’s fleet in August 2019. There’s still no hard information as to where she is going, although there are some rumours that it might be to Hong Kong – or elsewhere in China – for use as a casino ship. It’s suggested […]

Well, after years of rumours, P&O have announced this morning that Oriana will be leaving the fleet in August 2019. I don’t yet know where she’ll be going, but I shall try to find out more.

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 […]

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 […]
