I had also never been on one of...

An introduction to Cruise holidays.

This February, the opportunity arose to holiday onboard P&O’s Oriana cruise ship. Sailing from Southampton, over the course of 10 days the cruise took in destinations in Spain, Portugal and also Gibraltar. I have been on one cruise before around 6 years ago and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience after being initially apprehensive of taking a cruise holiday. Since then, I’ve been championing them to friends and family...
