About This Ship
Cruise Ship Overview
The family-friendly mid-sized Oceana is much like her cousins in the P&O fleet. The design and layout of bars, lounges, shops and dining areas promote a flowing, social atmosphere perfect for mingling and making new friends with or without children. Informal and casually fun, the ship’s broad decks welcome passengers to splash in four pools and six whirlpools or burn energy on the sports court ingeniously housed in the funnel. While a champagne bar caters to the older set, the ice cream parlor will please little ones. Light and bright, colorful cabins are spacious enough to accommodate families comfortably. Refurbishments in 2013 will include new bedding, carpets, and furnishings, as well as enhanced technology in lighting and sound for entertainment venues. The Oasis Spa will also have renovated changing rooms and sauna.
Oceana was originally Princess Cruises’ Ocean Princess, but was transferred to P&O in 2003 and has sailed since then as one of their family-friendly ships. Although she retains her original layout and fixtures, the decor has been refined to suit the tastes of British passengers. The delicate circular staircase in the four-deck-high atrium seems to float above the palm trees below. Indoor decor is pleasant, with intimate spaces creating the illusion of a much smaller ship. Main public rooms are on a vertical arrangement on four lower decks, with cabins located forward and aft. The casino is positioned out of the way of lounges and dining rooms, so there’s little need for most passengers, especially children, to pass through unless they intend to gamble. A sports court is in the funnel, offering tennis, soccer, and basketball, as well as table tennis, a golf net, and a simulator with limited operating hours.
