British-based P&O Cruises has announced that the Oriana cruise ship will undergo a major refurbishment at the end of November 2016.
The ship will sail to Hamburg. Germany for its upgrade which will begin on November 25, 2016. The cruise line posted on its site “After listening to your feedback, we’re collaborating with leading cruise-industry architects Richmond on a refit programme that will encompass updates to the cabins, suites, entertainment areas, restaurants, bars and public areas to bring Oriana up to the high standards that we hold across our entire fleet.”
The 69,000 gross ton vessel will be getting a ton of improvements including the Peninsular and Oriental Restaurants. In both restaurants, the carpets and curtains will be changed, new lighting and new color schemes. They will have a fresh new look for the hundreds of cruisers who will be dining each night.
A lot of work will be done on P&O Oriana’s cabins. They will be brought up to an even higher standard with repairs and upgrades throughout. Balconies will get some attention so guests can enjoy a sunset in the best possible surroundings.
P&O Oriana’s last cruise before the refurbishment will be its 34-night USA and Caribbean sailing. The ship will resume cruises in December. P&O Oriana was built-in 1995 and can carry over 1,800 passengers at double occupancy.
