P&O Cruises recently welcomed Oriana back into the fleet after a month-long dry dock refurbishment which transformed the ship so it is exclusively for adults. The re-fit saw the addition of 27 new cabins and the introduction of an Ocean Grill restaurant by Marco Pierre White, now also proving very popular on P&O Cruises Adonia.
The multi-million pound overhaul to the ship, named by HM The Queen in 1995, also includes the addition of Sorrento, the new Italian restaurant concept also launched on Adonia, but this time with an outdoor dining area; a newly designed aft deck with bar; refreshed decoration in the public areas and Oasis Spa, which also now features thermal loungers and a dedicated aerobics floor; and a new look to the Al Fresco Mediterranean cafe.
Oriana is currently on a 97 night world cruise so this video takes a look at what the refit entailed, the design process, and gives a preview of what to expect when the ship arrives back for her 2012 cruising season from Southampton.
