ORIANA arrived at Blohm & Voss, Hamburg, for a major refit

P & O CRUISES "ORIANA" arrived this wednesday at Hamburg for a major refit, a conversion to adult only cruising, this is for me one of the most antecipated refits of the last few years because major modifications will incur, which regrettably might alter the appearance of this classic ship, she was built in 1995 with a view to retain CANBERRA´s ambiance, her first master Commodore Ian Gibb was appointed because of his connection with the much-loved CANBERRA, she was for a few years the bench-mark against which all other cruise ships would be measured, she epitomizes the best the nineties could offer in terms of ship building, a ship designed with long sea voyages in mind, stable, sleek, powerful and fast, the fastest for 25 years. Few photos taken along the years, the likes of which we might not see again
