UK design firm Richmond International is to refit P&O Cruises’ Oriana during a three-week refurbishment project in Hamburg, Germany at the end of November.
The adult-only vessel will receive a complete makeover of her bars, entertainment areas and public spaces. Both of Oriana’s main dining rooms, the Peninsular and Oriental restaurants, will be updated with new colour schemes, fresh carpets, curtains and upgraded lighting.
Passenger cabins will also be transformed with a new palette of natural creams, soft greys and teal. Chairs, sofas, tables and lamps will also be updated with newer classic styles, while bathrooms will be refurbished.
“After listening to guests’ feedback, we are investing in updates to many areas of the ship, but what is key is that we are retaining her unique charm and traditional character,” said PaulLudlow, P&O Cruises senior vice president. “With her teak promenade and lido decks, we know that Oriana holds a special place in the hearts of many of our guests and so we will be keeping her most distinctive features, such as her Tiffany glass ceiling and other well-loved classic touches.”
