Just got back from the oriana, it dose not matter which dinning room you are in the menu will be the same, we were in the oriental, but the penisular is the other one and they are both very nice. They both have first and second dinning. the second seating is around 8.30. they do two shows in the thearter so which ever one you are on you will see the show.

It will be in either the Peninsular or the Oriental restaurant on E deck as both main restaurants are used. There will be a card in your cabin giving you the table number and which restaurant. The menus are identical.

It's a few years since I was last on Oriana but, in those pre Carnival days and when they had fewer ships, the brochure used to state which cabins were allocated to each restaurant. From what I recall the basic rule was that if your cabin was forward then you were allocated the Peninsular while those whose cabins were aft went to the Oriental. Don't take this as a hard and fast rule and if you have a suite then possibly different arrangements may apply. As Ingle has already stated, the menus are identical.

Just come back from Med. on Oriana, I agree with Ingle. Both restaurants are the same menu, and you will be told which one when you get to your cabin. I'ts a great ship,plenty to do or not as you wish,staff are fantastic and it is one of the best if you hit any rough weather - we had force 10 coming back across Biscay. Have a great cruise!!

Sex, drugs and ports of call. ...

Dean Michaelides's blog

I recently read an article from a former cruise ship employee. He was explaining that having sex, taking drugs and making friends in the onboard sex dungeon was a regular occurrence on board one Caribbean cruise liner. Despite having sex with the clients being a sackable offence the staff would have no qualms getting involved. He also mentioned that the riskier the better so as well as having sex in the staff decks they would like to push the boundaries on the unpopulated decks.It wasn’...

Piraeus Athens Gateway Or ...

By Camilla Edwards

Camilla Edwards's blog

Continuing my look at European ports this week I thought I`d choose Piraeus, the port for the Greek capital Athens.Athens is probably most famous for the Acropolis, topped by the Parthenon Temple, and the National Museum. It is a bustling, busy city with lots to do and a place I have visited several times. It has lots of really good hotels, restaurants and bars as well as its history. Many cruise ships now visit Athens using Piraeus as the anchor port.The port sits about 7 miles from the city...
