I was on the Oriana (P&O) last year and found the evenind dress code was smart formal and for the 2 formsl nights add a glitter wrap & gold?silver shoes and enjoy. There were the what I would call 'overdressed' but really smart is enough. Relax and be comfortable.

I would reiterate what Jackson says. I (53) went on a two week cruise with P&O on the Oceana, last July with my wife (50) and my twin 21 yr old daughters. I hate dressing up so wasn't looking forward to the black tie nights. But I dutifully hired a tux for the occasion and took a suit with me for the semi formal nights and I thoroughly enjoyed the whole thing. I found that, even on the nights when I could dress down a bit, I chose to dress a little smarter than I might otherwise have done as I don't get much opportunity at home. The ship, in the main was full of ordinary people just out to have a good time and not a drunken hooligan in sight. Of course in the daytime it' shorts and t-shirts as usual. You can, if you want just wear a dark suit on the formal nights but most men do wear tuxedos or dinner jackets and ladies just wear whatever they feel glamorous in. You will enjoy it even if you try hard not to. Regards, Keith.

Sounds like something that JK Rowling could use a title for one of her novels but in the real world the word supplement strikes fear into the heart and wallet of many a single traveller. We receive quite a few enquiries where people make a comment about supplements and how unfair they are, but is the cruise industry cashing in or are the supplements part of a wider dilemma? Take hotels for instance; they charge a room rate and it doesnt matter if there are two people in the room or one perso...

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...
