Tell us where you are going i.e. ports of call, and we shall be able to tell you if they are worth a visit.

In case they don't get back to you. Oriana only has one mini cruise (2 nights) in April 2009, calling at Zeebrugge for Bruges. Not been myself but if you can help? ...Bob.

I expect this is the classic P&O weekender to Zeebrugge. Excursions are provided both to Brugges and Brussels but I beleive the prices are excessive. We done a similar cruise earlier this year and found the 5 euro return fare on the train to Brugges very good value. A tram runs along the sea front from outdside the dock gates to Blankenberge and also to Zeebrugge Strand station where there is a train to Brugges every hour(The journey takes 25 minutes). True, we didn't have a guide but we didn't have a rigid timetable either and took Brugges and all it had to offer at our leiure. Enjoy the history, the cafe culture and the chocolate.

Unless you want to visit Bruges (assuming you are going to Zeebrugge and that this is only a 2 night cruise) you could stay on board and spend the time enjoying the ship. If you board one afternoon and then spend all the next day out on an excursion you will have very little time to enjoy the ship. If you are first time cruisers you could enjoy a good lunch in the main restaurant and see what else is going on. When a lot of passengers are ashore it is a great time to explore the ship. We have been on Oriana twice - the first time was on a 3 night cruise - and we loved it.

Ports of Call or Sea Days?

By Lee Johnson

After booking a passenger yesterday on a 24 night Caribbean cruise from Southampton return it got me thinking about the different itineraries, some that are port intensive and some that have lots of Sea days, as this one did.Having taken my first Cruise back in 2002 on board the QE2 transatlantic to New York I fell in love with the cruise experience during those sea days. There was always something going on, be that Ballroom dancing or learning the tango (I didn’t do any of this for th...

Adonia back with P&O

By Gemma Coles

Gemma Coles's blog

 It doesn’t seem that long ago when we said goodbye to the P&O Adonia. P&O Adonia left the fleet in 2015 with much sadness to lots of passengers. The ship went to Fathom Cruises which is a line dedicated to volunteer tourism. Guests were taken to locations such as the Dominican Republic to help teach English or build water filtration systems to help with poorer countries. Carnival Group have now announced that after an upgrade to the ship, with the addition of a new rest...
