The first contemporary ship to be built specifically for the British market, Oriana introduced several features that are shared by her larger fleet mate Aurora, including a range of facilities for families with children, which were expanded during the ship's latest refit. Adjacent to the playroom and teen center, parents and kids have a dedicated area with a pool, hot tub, and table tennis set.
For a medium-size ship, Oriana offers a wide choice in public spaces, with everything from a traditional British gentlemen's club to a library and a writing room. The four-deck-high atrium has an impressive Tiffany glass dome overhead. Lord's Tavern, the place to watch live sporting events, is decorated with cricket memorabilia. Interesting paintings, tapestries, and sculptures throughout the ship are almost museum-quality. High atop the ship, the Crow's Nest is an observation lounge with commanding sea views. With no balcony accommodations cluttering her aft decks, Oriana has wide-open spaces overlooking her wake.
