P&O Cruises has announced details of the new-look Oriana, which is due for an extensive refit in November.
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.”
Oriana will undergo a three-week refurbishment in Hamburg at the end of November. The adult-only mid-size ship will receive a complete makeover of its staterooms, restaurants, bars, entertainment areas and public spaces to provide a whole new look.
“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,” added Paul.
Details of changes include Oriana’s main dining rooms, the Peninsular and Oriental restaurants, which will each be updated with new colour schemes, replacing the carpets, curtain fabric and upgrading the lighting.
The staterooms will also be transformed with a new palette of creams, soft greys and teal, as well as upgraded bathrooms. Chairs, sofas, tables and lamps will also be updated with newer classic styles.
P&O Cruises is collaborating with leading designers Richmond International, who also worked on the décor for Britannia, to provide a modern yet classic look and feel throughout.
