Friendly staff, good British style pub and the food was excellent. Being someone who lives at 100 miles an hour and never letting myself fully relax, the first couple of days were weird, but waking up to a new port nearly every other day, waking early to walk quietly, have a casual breakfast, and a few pages of a good book without getting interrupted were a real treat. The spa was lovely, I had a fire and ice pedicure and manicure which was well worth the £84 it cost.
The Oriana is a quaint, pretty little ship...go on you wont be disappointed.
my only disappointment was having to go home

did not use the main dinning areas just went to the conservatory for every meal (suited us for what we wanted to do )the meals in there were ok not special but ok.the staff who manned the area were very helpful with many a smiling face every day .
ship staff ..the reception team ..i have never in all my years of of being on cruise ships come across such a wonderful group of people on the front desk so happy,helpful and always ready to talk and smile can not praise them enough so well trained and so well led .
the cabin was small but kept well supplied and very clean thank you .
now the down side....entertainment the cruise director was the worse i have ever come seen thats when we did see him (he was the invisible man )his deputy k.... never knew what it was to smile (was she afraid of cracking her face she was so miserable at all times the only two entertainment officers who did their jobs correctly were ..jemma and emma very well done you two you knew what your jobs where you made our time with enjoyable ....the other four you know who you are where disgraceful you are plainly in the wrong jobs your cruise director should have been about to see how poor you are ..either retrain them or replace them .the cruise its self after a bad start due to the weather (storms etc) was fantastic and the 36 nights passed to quickly we loved the ship .johndoe

The band was wonderful best ever. The only thing that spoilt our holiday, not allowed to relax do our own thing and dance. The two dancing teachers a husband and wife team, just like on hello hello, all those years ago. They were dreadful constantly there condemning and instructing. We usually enjoy ballroom dancing not that trip in fact I would not go on another cruise if they were there to ruin out evenings.

This obviously meant my husband and myself could enjoy some time together. The food was brilliant the service excellent, the cleanliness of the ship was without question.
The entertainment was varied and I believe something for all ages.
