P&O Cruises’ oldest ship, Oriana, is to receive a bow-to-stern refurbishment when she heads to dry dock in November.
The 1995-built ship will head to Hamburg to undergo a refurbishment that will see new updates to accommodation, restaurants, and venues.
Working with leading cruise industry architects, Richmond, Oriana’s most distinctive features will remain, but carpets, lighting, and furniture will be modernised.
All soft furnishing in Oriana’s cabins and suites will be replaced, while furniture will be repaired to a high standard or replaced. Bathrooms and toilets will undergo repairs and upgrades and balconies will receive maintenance work.
Carpets and curtains in the Peninsula and Oriental Restaurants will be changed, along with a new colour scheme and improved lighting.
The ship will head to dry dock on November 25, 2016, after returning from a cruise to the USA and Caribbean, where she will emerge 21 days later, ready for her first post-refit cruise on December 16, a 2-night mini-cruise to Zeebrugge.
