Iceland is the land of fire and ice. Hot springs, powerful waterfalls and stunning glaciers make Iceland a curious mix of opposites. Iceland is a vast volcanic laboratory where mighty forces shape the earth: geysers gush, mud-pots gloop, ice-covered volcanoes rumble and glaciers cut great pathways through the mountains. Its supercharged splendour seems designed to remind visitors of their utter insignificance in the greater scheme of things. A dip in a pool becomes a soak in a geothermal lagoon; a casual stroll can transform into a trek across a glittering glacier. We hope you can join us!

P&O Oriana

Oriana is one of the smallest cruise ships in the P&O Cruises fleet. Oriana elegantly combines classic design features such as teak decks and a tiered stern with delightful Art Deco touches. Exclusively for adults, she exudes refinement and luxury. Oriana’s signature features are a stunning atrium with a Tiffany glass ceiling and her panoramic Crow’s Nest bar. The Oriana offers many different dining options from the traditional dining room to a variety of speciality restaurants. The P&O Oriana offers a great variety of entertainment from West End style productions in the Theatre Royal to the Casino. Making the most of her size, Oriana offers plenty of on-board activities. Curl up with a book on a sun chair across the teak promenade or find a quiet corner in the cosy library. And when it’s time to meet up, there are plenty of lively bars and venues across the ship to set the perfect tone for what is sure to be a brilliant evening.
