This was the first time I have seen Oceana, and she does seem to be a regular caller. Again I think she could do with a redesign, especially around the bow area, but that is my opinion.
She is operated by P&O Cruises, and she is one of 4 similar ships built for Princess Cruises/P&O. I also think one of them called in South Africa in the period shortly after Oriana entered service.
However, if anything Oceana seems to be one of those ships that doesn’t really leave an impression. Maybe next time she is here I should go out to Hythe and see what she is like from the front.

I never did get to Hythe to see her from the front, and she kept on evading me or sitting at QEII where I could not get decent pics. Until today.
Supposed to sail at 16H30, she only started moving after 5. The weather was overcast and not really great lightwise, but I did manage to shoot some video and get some pics. She does not impress from this angle either.
