» Oriana

Owned by: P & O

Only 7000 or so tons less than her sister ship, Aurora, Oriana at 69,453 tons is pretty much the 'standard' when you envisage a modern-day cruise ship. Please don't confuse with her predecessor the first Oriana who began life back in 1960.

Built by Meyer Werft in Germany and coming into service in 1995 she was an extremely fast cruise ship with an cruising speed of 24 knots and able to operate almost anywhere in the world. Currently she will perform a 90 day cruise each year on top of her shorter sailings to the Mediterranean, Baltic, Scandinavia and the Caribbean.

Some other statistics which may interest you are she's 106ft in width with a draught of 26ft (both same as Aurora) only slightly shorter in lengt at 853ft. She will carry a maximum of 2272 passengers and a crew of 794.

Below are photographed events the Oriana has been seen at.
