Oriana’s Refit

We’re excited to announce that Oriana has undergone a refit to improve the overall cruise experience for our guests. After listening to your feedback, we collaborated with leading cruise-industry architects Richmond on a refit programme that encompasses updates to the cabins, suites, entertainment areas, restaurants, bars and public areas and brought Oriana up to the high standards that we hold across our entire fleet. We have of course retained Oriana’s most distinctive features, but guests can now enjoy new luxurious materials, soft furnishings and carpets, upgraded furniture, improved lighting, rich colour schemes and the ultimate in comfort and relaxation.

Refit Summary

Traditional cruising at its best has become even better. Oriana has undergone a fabulous makeover by Richmond International (famed for creating luxury hotels on six continents, as well as our own beautiful Britannia).

She returns with defining features such as her Tiffany glass ceiling and Art Deco accents still in pride of place. Yet, elsewhere you’ll find subtle changes including renewed cabins, suites, entertainment areas, restaurants, bars and public areas. Looking forward to seeing her revitalised interiors? We can’t wait to welcome you back on board.

The Peninsular & Oriental Restaurants

The Peninsular and Oriental Restaurants are Oriana’s elegant main dining rooms, welcoming hundreds of guests each night and offering world-class dining surrounded by graceful décor and magnificent ocean views.

To refresh the areas, we have replaced the carpets and curtains, upgraded the lighting and changed the colour schemes in both restaurants. This rejuvenation ensures that you can continue to dine in elegance and style for years to come.


We know that the place you rest your head while on holiday is one of the most important aspects of a relaxing break. Your cabin should be where you look forward to heading to at the end of the day, and a space for some much-needed time out during busy holiday activities.

To that end, we’ve replaced all soft furnishings with more modern and elegant designs, and repaired furniture to a high standard or replaced it. Bathrooms and toilets have undergone repairs and upgrades to bring them up to the standard that our guests deserve, and maintenance work on balconies ensure that you see the sunset in style and comfort.

Salon, Spa & Gym

To offer guests the best salon treatments, we have introduced a new pedicure station and upgraded salon equipment such as the washbasins and treatment beds, so guests can be pampered to their heart’s content.

Our Spa has a new look, too, we have refurbished the spa and relaxation areas to rival your favourite spa on dry land. We’ve uplifted the sauna, steam-room, whirlpool and changing areas with new tiling, modern furniture and contemporary equipment. And also an improved layout meaning that you can focus on pounding the pounds in the gym area, while the relaxation areas are all about escaping to a calming retreat with soothing décor and natural effects such as wood, flowers and plants.

The Conservatory and The Beach House

Wherever you dine on board Oriana, we want to you to experience the best of our service. The Conservatory and The Beach House include new service counters as well as increased seating and two-seater tables so more guests can enjoy what both areas have to offer.

We also want you to enjoy the elegance and classic luxury of cruising in every part of the ship, so we’ve introduced new lighting designs, upgraded the furniture and replaced the carpet throughout the areas to ensure a refreshed and reinvigorated dining space.


Named after P&O founder Arthur Anderson, rest assured Anderson’s bar has retained its sense of understated luxury. Only now, it’s an even more ideal venue for a pre-dinner tipple or a relaxing nightcap, with stylishly elegant new bar stools, sofas, chairs, tables, lamps, carpets and rugs.
