The British style of P&O Cruises cannot be overemphasized in the fleet of mid-size and large ships which attract a clientele that’s fiercely loyal and who revel in the traditional interpretation of cruising. As one of two ‘white sisters’, Oceana was christened by HRH The Princess Royal in 2003. This 2,016-passenger vessel joined the P&O Cruises’ fleet six months earlier having been switched from the Princess Cruises’ fleet where she had been in service as Ocean Princess since 2000. The ship underwent a makeover in 2012 when Le Club was transformed into a multipurpose venue for everything from lectures to craft classes before transforming into a disco at night. One of the most popular ships in the company's fleet, the informal atmosphere makes Oceana particularly attractive to families.

There’s a variety of accommodation categories which basically boil down to 137 sq ft – 181 sq ft Inside and Outside cabins; 178 sq ft – 237 sq ft Balcony cabins; Mini-Suites which range from 368 sq ft to 384 sq ft; plus 449 sq ft to 753 sq ft Deluxe Suites. There are 19 adapted cabins for less-able passengers, across most categories.

Choice, presentation and quality in the two main restaurants are hard to fault and, crucially, remain consistent. The Ligurian Restaurant has traditional set sitting times, while the Adriatic Restaurant offers Freedom Dining, allowing passengers to arrive between 6 pm and 8.30 pm and sit with whomever they choose. The Plaza self-service buffet on Deck 14 is open from 6.30 am to 9.30 pm and serves a good variety of dishes including a daily roast. On Indian-themed nights passengers flock there for delicious curries. In the evening, Café Jardin - on the uppermost level of the four-deck atrium – transforms into a trattoria featuring Mediterranean-inspired cuisine by the acclaimed chef Marco Pierre White. Another popular option is the Beach House for comfort food such as fish, steaks and chicken.

Starlights is home to various comedy and cabaret acts which are competent enough but lack imagination. Exceptions are the classical piano and violin recitals. Socialites don’t have to stray far from Deck 7 where Winners' Sports Bar hosts live music; Magnums and Tiffany's are ideal for posh cocktails; while the Yacht & Compass is a nautically themed pub.

During warm-weather cruises we really like the light show on Lido Deck as night falls, when the pools and the deck are illuminated in glowing colours and is a great place to meet friends after dinner. Another facet worth highlighting is the well-stocked library with its own librarian and good selection of fiction and reference books.
