Oriana has two main dining rooms. Ship enthusiats
will recognize that the names of the two restaurants
are taken from the line's traditional name (i.e.
Peninsular and Oriental Steam Navigation
Company). The two restaurants are similar in decor and size.
The Peninsular Restaurant (above and left) is
located midships and seats 500. It is open for breakfast and lunch as well as for dinner. Breakfast and lunch are open seating and all passengers may partake. For dinner, this restaurant is limited to passengers who have opted for P&O Cruises' flexible dining system. Under this system, guests may come at any time the restaurant is open.
The Oriental Restaurant is located aft and
has views overlooking the ship's wake as well as to port and starboard.
This restaurant is usually only open for dinner. For dinner, it follows the traditional cruise ship dining system with passengers assigned to a specific table at either the first or second seating.
The Conservatory is Oriana's self-service buffet
restaurant. It has lots of natural light coming in
through the floor-to-ceiling windows on each side,
which of course, offer panoramic views over the
This venue is open throughout the day and well into the evening from early continental breakfast to late night snacks. It also has themed-buffet dinners.
