    mikey1958 got a reaction from seawitch in Oceana is a fantastic ship! Highly recommended.   
    I've recently returned from a med cruise aboard the P&O Oceana and just wanted to share my fantastic experience!
     
    This is the second time my family and I have sailed with P&O (previously on the Ventura) and this time we couldn't fault the ship, itinerary or staff. We liked that the ship is smaller than the Ventura (less busy, easier to get around and see everything). The cabins were also lovely, I slept like a baby! Although the décor could do with an upgrade.
     
    The food was also great (try Café Jardin, it is worth the extra fee).
     
    In terms of the itinerary, we started at Southampton which was great for a young family - no airport hassle and crying children on the airplane. Check in was also very smooth and quick.
     
    We then stopped firstly at Madeira, then to La Palma, Tenerife, Lanzarote, and finally Lisbon.
     
    Madeira was a beautiful place and really gave us a great start to our holiday. Beautiful weather and scenery!
     
    Lisbon was also lovely although the port was very very busy - beware.
     
    There was also plenty to do at sea including some good films and four pools to play in during the nicer weather.
     
    If you're looking for a friendly ship look no further. All staff on board were very kind, and did all they could to ensure we had a great time (with 3 young kids we had thought it would be more stressful). Most people on board were British so we made some good friends on the first day, and dined with them for the rest of the week!
     
    Overall 9/10.
