P&O Oriana

P&O Cruises has schedule a drydock and refurbishment for the Oriana later this year, promising the ship will retain its so-called “classical elegance” following the three-week refurbishment in Hamburg.

The ship will receive a complete makeover of its cabins, restaurants, bars, entertainment areas and public spaces to provide a whole new elegant and sophisticated look, according to a statement from P&O.

The main dining rooms aboard will get new color schemes, along with new carpets and fabrics.

Staterooms will also be transformed with a new color layout, featuring soft grays and teal. Chairs, sofas, tables and lamps will also be updated with newer styles as well as upgraded bathrooms.

P&O Cruises senior vice president, Paul Ludlow, said: “After listening to guests’ feedback, we are investing in updates to many areas of the ship, but what is key is that we are retaining her unique charm and traditional character. With her teak promenade and lido decks, we know that Oriana holds a special place in the hearts of many of our guests and so we will be keeping her most distinctive features, such as her Tiffany glass ceiling and other well-loved classic touches.”
