Decorated in rich bronzes and golds, The Oriental Restaurant has an understated elegance and seats almost 500 people in stylish comfort. Huge ocean-view windows on three sides frame views of the ship's wake, while delicately crafted dishes are beautifully presented at your table. This is truly a world-class dining experience to be savoured in every sense.
Midships on Promenade Deck lies Harlequins - Oriana's largest nightspot. A pair of Harlequin figurines welcome you 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!
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. The Monte Carlo Club is the perfect place for roulette, blackjack and poker, and there are experienced staff on hand to teach you how to play all the games. Stop by and try your luck!
Chaplin's Cinema is located aft of midships on D Deck, with its entrance on the port side just off the Art Gallery. This outstanding cinema offers excellent viewing from any of its 200 comfortable seats, and boasts an exceptional sound system.

Chaplin's is also used for lectures, port enhancement talks, and much more.
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 you can attend craft classes and enjoy leisure pursuits here, and at night you 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.
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. It offers lovely views of the colourful Tiffany glass that crowns the atrium and overlooks Royal Court, Queen's Court and Garden Court on the decks below. 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.
Crichton's card room is located on the starboard side of D Deck, midships, next to the library and just aft of the Curzon Room. Named after former P&O director Sir Andrew Crichton, this quiet room is filled with card tables and is a great place to socialise over a friendly game of cards or your favourite board games. You will also find bridge tournaments here, as well as our competitive evening syndicate quizzes.
