MV Oriana is owned and operated by P&O Cruises and entered service in 1995 when she was named by the Queen at the port of Southampton. At time of launch in 1995, she was one of the largest cruise ships in the world. MV Oriana is the fastest ship in the P&O fleet.

She sails on an annual world cruise and spends rest of time cruising the Mediterranean, the Canary Islands, and on Baltic cruises.

She is named after the original Oriana which operated for Orient Line and P&O between 1959 and 1986.
In December 2006 the Oriana underwent a 12 million refit in Germany and was re-registered to Bermuda. The refit included the introduction of the new Oriana Rhodes restaurant (designed by chef Gary Rhodes) following the success of the Arcadian Rhodes restaurant on the Arcadia. The Lords Tavern bar was also added at this refit, and all the cabins were refurbished.

Eating places include the famous Gary Rhodes restaurant, a pizzeria, open deck grill restaurant. There are twelve bars including the Crow's nest bar and Lords Tavern featuring cricket memorabilia. There are five spas, ocean view gym, cinema, musicals in the Theatre Royal, night entertainment at Harlequins.
