Oceana is a family friendly, mid sized ship
Oceana's atrium offers a real 'wow' as soon as you step on board, with its palm trees and glass-fronted lifts. Her diverse and flexible dining and entertainment options offer great choice day and night - from 2 main restaurants, an Italian restaurant by Marco Pierre White and a poolside grill to 13 places to drink, a nightclub, a casino, 2 pools and a champagne bar, plus fun facilities for children of all ages.
A real wow
Oceana is a mid-sized ship with a particularly stunning atrium that creates a real 'wow'. Her bars, restaurants, shops and lounges have all been designed to flow seamlessly through the ship, which makes for a sociable and informal atmosphere.
Something for the whole family to enjoy
Oceanas welcoming and informal atmosphere makes her particularly popular with families, with a host of fun facilities for children of all ages. Oceana offers incredible family holidays so you can be sure that the phase "I'm bored" will be left on the gangway.
Don't forget the adults
Oceana has broad decks with 4 sparkling pools and 6 whirlpools to enjoy during the day and even has a sports court ingeniously housed in her funnel. The gym and spa are well appointed and within easy reach.
Activites and educationLiving the life!
Life on Oceana can be as relaxed or as active as you desire. There's plenty to get involved in on board. Children's clubs will keep youngsters and teenagers amused. There's a great atmosphere around the Riviera Pool and live bands often entertain you as you chat, swim and sunbathe.
Port presentations enlighten you on your next port of call. The Cyb@study provides the perfect way to contact loved ones back home. Events such as art auctions, quizzes, deck game contests, galley tours and specialty buffets offer something for everyone. And exercise and dance classes inject some extra energy into your time away.
There's such a wide choice of things to do on board a P&O Cruises ship, they each have to publish a daily newspaper just to list them all. Of course, you don't have to do anything at all if you don't want to, but if you do tire of just lazing in the sun and reading, we can offer you a range of things to keep you busy.
Needless to say, swimming is a favorite past-time on board. Whether you have kids with you or not, you'll be glad to know you have a choice of pools - one is specially reserved for families with children.
To counter all the gourmet calories you'll be enjoying at every mealtime each liner also boasts a fully-equipped health-spa with gymnasium, sauna, massage and beauty treatments on offer.
Oceana now equipped with state of the art cyb@studies where you can send and receive e-mails, use the Internet and read our amazing destinations guides, perfect for keeping in touch with people at home and discovering what lies ahead.
For kids, there is lots to do on board. In fact, our children's facilities are so good, you may even forget you brought the family with you! There are fully equipped play rooms for 2 to 9 year old's and - on Oceana - we have a special area, Decibels for teenagers. With art classes, finger painting, special parties, fancy dress and their own youth staff, kids have every bit as much fun as the grown ups.

The Plaza has a relaxed atmosphere and boasts plenty of dining choices. Breakfast and lunch buffets are available throughout the day and a waiter-service bistro menu is available from early evening until late. The Plaza's twinkling starlights and inviting dance floor also make it a popular place to congregate when the sun goes down and the music comes up.
Wrapping around the top of the atrium on D Deck is the delightful Cafe Jardin. This very light and airy, informal eatery offers fantastic views of the spectacular four-deck atrium while you dine. You can enjoy delicious light snacks, baguettes and pizza in Cafe Jardin's casual atmosphere, twenty-four hours a day.

Immaculately laid with fine white linen and sparkling tableware, every night here is a special occasion, and the relaxed ambience and sociable atmosphere will enhance your entire dining experience.
The beautiful 530-seat Footlights Theatre is located on the Promenade Deck, in the forward part of the ship, next to the Yacht & Compass. With its high-tech audio, video and lighting equipment, the Footlights Theatre sets the scene for musical extravaganzas in superb style with a West End sparkle. And with a different musical spectacular almost every night, this elegant venue is bound to bring out the theatre goer in everyone!
Riviera Bar by night
The Riviera Bar is at the forward end of the Riviera Pool, on Lido Deck. A full-service, outdoor bar with a roof covering, it's an excellent place to cool off with a refreshing cocktail while sunbathing. With a bandstand close by, it's also a great place to sit and relax to live music throughout the day and into the night.
Life on BoardA sociable sojourn
Fun and relaxed, this superliner has a 'wow factor' all her own. Endless diversions and an informal atmosphere beckon on board. You can play a game of five-a-side or tennis in her sports court, ingeniously housed within her funnel. Peruse the shops in Regent Street. Luxuriate in a jacuzzi. Surf the net or email home in Explorers. And tone your body while you soothe your mind in the ocean-view gymnasium.
If you prefer to keep evening arrangements flexible, opt for Oceana's Freedom Dining. Allowing you to dine in the inviting Ligurian Restaurant when and with whom you choose, it is perfect for Oceana's sociable crowd. If you prefer really getting to know your table companions, opt for Club Dining. And of course Oceana's Select Dining venues offer variety and a change of scene. Dine beneath the stars at her Horizon Grill or opt for bistro style fare in The Plaza.

A superliner suited to many tastes, she is the perfect choice for families and newcomers.
