Oriana-modern Playing Cards
Modern Playing Cards, not as nice

In mid 2018 P & O Cruises announced that Oriana would be withdrawn from the fleet in July 2019. In my opinion I suspect that one of the reasons she is going is because Carnival do not like smaller ships, instead they continue to build ship monstrosities! Oriana is the last "pure P and O" ship left in the fleet. Her traditional funnel colour has been changed from buff to blue with a stylised sun motif (see below), paying lip service I suppose to the original Company Rising Sun. My Wife and I went on her cruise to the Western Mediterranean in October 2018 and during the cruise I asked the Chief Engineer why the ship was leaving and what was happening to her! She has
been sold to Chinese interests to go to Shanghai to be a floating hotel..... shades of her predecessor, which also ended up there and eventually, through lack of maintenance, she had to be scrapped.
