Passengers must be over the age of 18 to use the spa facilities including treatments. If you are under the age of 18 and if you would like a treatment then you will need to be accompanied by an adult.

Dress Code

The ship operates three styles of dress code: Smart, Evening Casual and Black Tie.

On Smart evenings ladies typically wear tailored trousers and separates or even a stylish dress, while men are in a shirt and trousers with a jacket, such as a blazer or sports jacket, or a suit and tie if they wish. For a typical two week cruise there are normally four Smart evenings.

Stylish resort or leisurewear is ideal for Evening Casual nights, for example casual separates or dresses for ladies and open-neck polo shirts and casual trousers (not shorts) for men. A jacket and smart trousers can be worn but are not compulsory. Smart dark denim is also fine, but not trainers, football shirts or tracksuits. For a typical two week cruise on Azura, Britannia, Oceana or Ventura there are normally ten Evening Casual nights. On Adonia, Arcadia, Aurora and Oriana there are normally six Evening Casual nights.

Black Tie nights (also known as Gala Evenings)add a touch of glamour and a real sense of occasion to evenings at sea. Ladies wear glamorous evening wear including cocktail dresses, ball gowns or even smart trouser suits. For men, dinner jackets or tuxedos are the norm, but a dark lounge or business suit and tie can be worn as an alternative. For a typical two week cruise there are normally four Black Tie evenings on board.

During the day casual shirts, shorts, trousers and beachwear are ideal.

Smoking & E-cigarette Policy

There are dedicated areas onboard where smoking is permitted. Smoking is not permitted in any public room, inside cabin or on cabin balconies.

Electronic cigarettes, including those which do not emit smoke, are not permitted in public areas but can be used in cabins, balconies and designated areas of the open deck.

Midships on Promenade Deck lies Harlequins - Oriana's largest nightspot.

A pair of Harlequin figurines welcome guests to this very glitzy and very modern dance venue. One of Oriana's most popular spots, Harlequins has an in-laid, wooden sprung floor, which offers a large open space that's great for ballroom dancing during the day. In the evenings, the floor area is reduced to a small intimate space for fantastic late night disco dancing action. The latest in lighting, coupled with superb high-tech sound equipment and the latest tunes, is a recipe for a fantastic evening experience!

Theatre Royal

The 650-seat Theatre Royal is located in the forward part of the ship on Promenade Deck.
A traditional theatre colour scheme of rich red, blue, gold and maroon, combined with a Shakespearean Tudor rose motif and heraldic design, was employed to give the feel of a West End theatre. The Theatre Royal also has all the very latest technical advantages, with its high-tech audio, video and lighting equipment and its revolving stage. And with a different musical spectacular every night, this is one room that guests will visit over and over again.

The Pacific Lounge

The Pacific Lounge, at the stern of the ship on Promenade Deck, is Oriana's entertainment centre.
Soft comfortable furnishings and contemporary colours create a friendly and inviting feel in the Pacific Lounge, and a tiered floor offers excellent viewing from anywhere in the room. During the day guests can attend craft classes and enjoy leisure pursuits here, and at night they can take in a hilarious comedy or a sophisticated cabaret. There's a full-service bar for liquid refreshment and a large wooden dance floor that comes alive at night.

Chaplin's Cinema

This outstanding cinema offers excellent viewing from any of its 200 comfortable seats, and an exceptional sound system.
Guests can sit back and enjoy the latest blockbusters or their favourite old classics, which are shown throughout the day and evening. Chaplin's is also used for lectures, port enhancement talks, and much more.

Monte Carlo

The Monte Carlo Club is the perfect place for roulette, blackjack and poker
Just forward of midships, on the starboard side of Promenade Deck, is the Monte Carlo Club Casino, Oriana's very own slice of cosmopolitan allure from the Riviera. Guests are invited to stop by and try their luck!


Named after former P&O director Sir Andrew Crichton, this quiet room is a great place to play a game of cards.
Crichton's card room also holds numerous bridge tournaments here, as well as competitive evening syndicate quizzes.


Both elegant and welcoming, Anderson's is ideally located for a break from the tables in the Monte Carlo Club.
The panelled walls, deep sofas, comfortable club chairs, classical paintings and traditional rugs create an ambience of a time-honoured London Club. It's perfect for a pre-dinner drink or warming nightcap. With his bronze bust on display in these fine British surroundings, P&O founder Arthur Anderson would be proud to be the namesake of this elegant room.

The Crow's Nest

This classy cocktail bar offers Oriana's most spectacular panoramic views.
High up on Sun Deck at the forward end of the ship guests will find The Crow's Nest. During the day they can enjoy shimmering sea vistas in this comfortable and relaxing atmosphere, with seating on two levels. But it's in the evening, as the lights go down, that The Crow's Nest is at its best; with some mood setting piano music in the background, guests can't find a better place from which to watch a breathtaking sunset at sea.

Lord's Tavern

A tribute to Lord's Cricket Ground, this quintessential British sports bar is shrouded in cricket memorabilia.
Next to the Photo Gallery, on the starboard side of Promenade Deck, is Lord's Tavern. The wall is adorned with a 2.3m high by 8.8m long, hand-painted mural of Lord's, with life-sized figures. There is a canopy above the bar, reminiscent of the awning over the stands at Lord's. Even the carpet is green - with a cross-mowed lawn effect! Offering glorious sea views, there is seating inside, as well as out on deck under umbrellas.

Terrace Bar

This full-service outdoor bar over looks the ships fabulous tiered decks and it's a great place for a casual al fresco lunch.
Located at the stern, high up on Lido Deck, the Terrace Bar is open all day and throughout the evening. With background music that adds to the relaxing environment, the Terrace Bar offers spectacular seascapes during the day and in the evening it is the best vantage point from which to watch the sun dip into the horizon.

Tiffany's Bar

The bar offers lovely views of the colourful Tiffany glass that crowns the atrium
Incorporating Tiffany's Bar in the forward section of D Deck, and wrapping around the top deck of the four-deck atrium, is Tiffany Court. The soft lighting and comfortable sofas and chairs create a very relaxing ambience, wonderful for meeting up with new friends or just enjoying a quiet drink.
