Oceana Overview

The Oceana cruise ship is part of the P&O fleet and sails primarily from Southampton. This beautiful vessel embarked on her maiden voyage in 2000, under the name of Ocean Princess. She was moved to the P&O fleet in 2003, at which time she underwent a second official naming ceremony and was christened by Princess Anne and her daughter Zara Phillips. Her sister ship is the Adonia.

The Oceana specs
A mid-sized vessel, the Oceana weighs 77,499 tonnes, measures 857.3 feet in length and spans 15 decks. She can accommodate 2,016 passengers and 875 crew.

Inside the Oceana
The interior decor on board the Oceana is contemporary and welcoming; think baby blue colourings, light wooden finishings and polished white marble. This is complemented by soft lighting and beautiful indoor plants. Most of the public rooms and cabins received an upgrade in December 2012, when the ship underwent an extensive refurbishment.

Things to do on board the Oceana
From shopping to swimming to a day at the spa, there's no shortage of activities to keep you well entertained on the Oceana. A good place to start is in the Atrium, the social heart of the ship. Here you will find a selection of lounges, bars, cafes and shops.

When the sun is shining, there's no better place to be than by one of the ship's six pools and jacuzzis. Alternatively, head to the Sun Deck for a game of deck quoits or shuffleboard. If the weather is not so great, then you'll find a range of public rooms to explore at your leisure, including an internet cafe, library and art gallery.

Oceana restaurants and bars
Whether you feel like a casual bite to eat or a proper sit-down meal at a fancy restaurant, you'll find both options and everything in between on board the Oceana cruise ship. There are two main dining rooms, one with fixed dinner seatings and one offering Freedom dining, as well as two specialty restaurants. You'll also find a selection of cafes open throughout the day, serving hot drinks and snacks. Of particular note is Tiffany's, which serves delicious Belgian chocolates alongside specialty coffees. The Sundaes ice cream bar is also a hit on sunny days, especially with families.

There is a good variety of bars and lounges to enjoy a drink or two, from a casual sports-themed venue called Winners to the glitzy Magnums Champagne Bar. Most bars come to life in the evening, but some are open throughout the day and may double as locations for enrichment activities.

Oceana itineraries and shore excursions
The Oceana splits her time between the Mediterranean, Caribbean, Canary Islands and USA. The shore excursions available will of course depend on your chosen destination. Rest assured, all ports offer an ample selection of excursions suitable for all interests and activity levels. Some examples include exploring La Coruna by bike, a catamaran adventure in Corsica and a wine tour in Florence.

If you would like more information about the Oceana schedule when on board, head down to the Explorers Tour Desk on Deck F. The friendly staff here will be able to provide you with some tips and advice. While you're there, be sure to enjoy a relaxing drink in the Explorer's Bar next door, where you'll also find a few computers in case you'd like to do some of your own research.

Cabins on board the Oceana

The cabins on board the Oceana cruise ship are modest yet comfortable. Standard cabins start at 137 square feet (inside) and go up to 178 square feet (outside with balcony). All rooms received a makeover during the 2012 refurbishment and come equipped with basic amenities such as a safe, hair dryer, mini fridge, writing desk and tea & coffee making facilities.

For those looking for a touch more space and luxury, the suites are an excellent choice. You can choose from three categories; mini suite, mini suite with balcony and deluxe suite. These range from 382 square feet to 638 square feet in size (including balcony space). In addition to the amenities provided in the standard rooms, the suites come with perks such as a pamper pack, a coffee machine and fruit and champagne on arrival. If you are staying in a deluxe suite you will also enjoy complimentary butler service.

Entertainment on board the Oceana cruise ship

The Oceana by day
Most traditional cruise activities are available on board the Oceana, such as trivia, shuffleboard and galley tours. If you'd like to try something new, there is a small selection of classes to choose from, including professional dance lessons and cooking demonstrations.

When it comes to relaxing, you can't go past the library. This beautiful room boasts stunning views of the water, making it the perfect place to settle down with a good book and watch the sea go by. Another excellent spot during the day is the Art Gallery - browse the impressive collection or even pick up a new piece to take home.

Pools, spas and fitness facilities on board the Oceana
There are six pools and jacuzzis available on the Oceana. The Crystal Pool is one of the most popular spots. Located on the Sun Deck on top of the ship, this pool is sheltered from the wind and offers some spectacular views. You could easily spend all day on the Sun Deck, with plenty of sun loungers to choose from and a poolside bar serving delicious snacks.

Fancy some downtime? Get away from it all at the Oasis Spa. After one of the relaxing treatments available, you'll walk out of the spa feeling like a new person. Located on the Lido Deck, the Oasis Spa is also home to a sauna, steam room and several jacuzzis.

There are plenty of ways to keep fit on board the Oceana. The fully-equipped gym has the latest cardio machines, as well as group fitness classes. If you'd like some help getting started, you can request a session with a personal trainer or nutritional consultant. Those who prefer to exercise outside could swim a few laps of the Terrace Pool or play a game of basketball at the sports court.

Oceana nightlife
As the sun goes down, the Oceana bars and lounges come to life. Grab a pre-dinner drink in Yacht & Compass, a nautical-inspired bar, or if you can't drag yourself away from the pool, enjoy a night out at the poolside Riviera Bar, home to deck parties, dancing and live bands.

Live entertainment can also be found at Starlights. Located on the Promenade Deck, this glitzy venue is home to cabaret shows and transforms into a dance hub as the night progresses. For West End inspired production shows, head to Footlights Theatre, the ship's show lounge. Live entertainment of a different kind can be found at the Monte Carlo Club casino, which has several slot machines and blackjack and poker tables. 

Packed your dancing shoes? Look no further than the ship's main dancing venues; The Plaza, Le Club and Tiffany's.

The Oceana for families
With regular sailings to sunny destinations in the Mediterranean and the Caribbean, the Oceana is especially popular with families during the summer and school holidays. However your children are guaranteed to have a great time rain or shine, thanks to the ship's fantastic youth facilities.

Located on Deck 12, The Reef is the designated children's area and is equipped with an impressive selection of toys as games, as well as a family-friendly pool and a teen's disco. The Reef is run by friendly, experienced supervisors and children are separated into age appropriate groups: Splashers for 2 to 4 year olds, Surfers for 5 to 8 year olds, Scubas for 9 to 12 years and H20 for 13 to 17 year olds.

Each age group has their own designated hangout, such as 'The Hideout' for the Surfers and the 'Treasure Chest' for Scubas. All of the hangouts are close to the Terrace Pool, so parents can drop their kids off and enjoy a relaxing swim.

Selected activities continue on throughout the evening and can serve as a type of babysitting service, although it is best to check what will be available as these can vary depending on the sailing. In the teen area, there is a dance floor and bar serving non-alcoholic beverages, as well a good selection of video games and movies. For your little ones (aged 6 months to 4 years old), there is a night nursery open until 2am.
