Piano Land (built 1995, last refurbished in 2016 as "MV Oriana", last refurbishment by Astro Ocean in 2022) was the oldest liner in PandO UK's fleet. The vessel was P&O's’s flagship (main ship in the fleet) until the arrival of Britannia (2015). Oriana was also one of P&O's adults' ships - together with Arcadia and Aurora. In 1997, the vessel was awarded the “Golden Cockerel” for being P&O Cruises fleet’s fastest (max cruising speed 31 mph / 50 kph). The only cruise ships that are faster than Oriana include Costa Voyager (now Chinese Taishan) and Cunard Line’s RMS Queen Mary 2. Oriana left the P&O fleet in August 2019. The ship was purchased in 2018 by the new Chinese company Twinkle Travel Cruise (brand of CTS-China Travel Services International).
P&O Oriana cruise ship deck plan has a total of 941 staterooms (for 1882 passengers (max capacity is 1950 guests) served by 800 crew/staff, 7 bars, 3 swimming pools, 4 jacuzzies. In the period 2011-2019, Oriana was advertised as "adults only ship" (without any especially family- or kids-dedicated facilities or programs available on board).
Note: On P&O Oriana ship, launderettes were located on decks A, C, D, E, F. These were passenger use laundry facilities (open 8 am - 10 pm, complimentary), complete with dryers, washers, ironing boards. Detergent costs extra, or you can use your own. Dry cleaning (conventional) was also available, with service charges per item. List with dry-cleaning prices was available in all staterooms.
MS Piano Land refurbishment 2020 review
During drydock 2020 (at COSCO Zhoushan Shipyard) the Piano Land ship received major interior and technical upgrades.
New suite categories were grouped in an exclusive (suite-only) complex with its own restaurant and pool deck. New suites' perks include priority boarding-tendering-debarkation, VIP shopping (private experiences), free WiFi, discount-priced Spa treatments. Many existing staterooms were upgraded to "family cabins" (with triple occupancy) by adding a 3rd bed. The 2-deck high duty-free shopping area (decks 6-7) was expanded (tripled in size) and now represents 100+ different brands.
The liner was upgraded with a new and more powerful marine HVAC (heat-ventilation-air conditioning) system.
