Oriana has 941 cabins divided into five categories. In total, there are 611 outside cabins, 130 with balconies (including eight suites and mini-suites) and 330 inside cabins. There are eight accessible cabins, and there are two inside single cabins.

Cabins have classic -- rather than contemporary -- decor, and a restful blue colour scheme is used throughout. The carpets and curtains again echo the feel of a country house hotel. During the 2016 refurb, all soft furnishings were replaced, along with furniture; bathrooms were also upgraded.

The televisions feature a reasonable selection of English-speaking news channels and films. A welcome sight for British passengers is the kettle provided in all cabins, with biscuits topped up daily. All cabins are air-conditioned and also include a radio, telephone and hair dryer. It was good to see plugs available near mirrors. Standard cabins have three UK-style plugs, while suites have eight.

Bathrooms in all categories are well lit and include ample mirrors and generous 100 ml bottles of The White Company shampoo, conditioner and body lotion, as well as P&O branded soap and a fixed dispenser of The White Company gel in the shower, where there are curtains rather than glass doors.

Interior: Inside cabins are relatively compact at 150 square feet, and many have small bathtubs, as well as showers -- another nod to British tastes.

Oceanview: Like inside cabins, ocean views (including some with portholes) start at roughly 150 square feet, with some ranging up to 220 square feet.

Balcony: Deluxe balcony cabins are 220 square feet, each with a 30-square-foot balcony. We were pleased with our deluxe balcony cabin, where the bedroom and living areas could be divided by thick curtains. In common with the suites, it had an airy feel, with floor-to-ceiling windows leading to the balcony where the two reclining chairs on the balcony provided enough room to stretch out. We liked extra touches, such as an atlas and binoculars, also provided in the suites.

Suite: Mini-suites are 340 square feet, each with a 75-square-foot balcony, and the suites measure in at 420 square feet with 92-square-foot balconies.

The most spacious cabins are located on Deck 10, with the eight suites situated on each side of the ship close to the forward lifts and stairwell and surrounded by mini-suites. Perks in suites include an inclusive but optional butler service, mineral water, flowers, Champagne and chocolates on arrival, coffee machine, whirlpool bath, bathrobe and slippers, and daily canapes. Excluding butler service, there are similar extras in the mini-suites.
