Warning: Is This Luxury Cruising? If You Pay Peanuts You Get…


Just a word of warning to those who are tempted by super cheap cruise deals, your experience may not be as luxurious as you had hoped. This room cost $75 USD per person per night on the luxury P&O Cruise ship, Oriana. Cabin number F213.

Yes, you do get access to the same bars, restaurants, entertainment venues and tours, so we can all agree that this price is good value, but it takes more than imagination to call this room a luxurious cruise room. Of course, there are very decent rooms on this ship, just be warned that the super cheap rooms are not all that.

The room in the picture is set up for 2 people but can actually house 4 in bunk beds. On newer versions of this P&O ship, the cheapest inside 4-person cabins are actually smaller than this… The mind boggles on how the ship has managed to squeeze 4 people into an even smaller space!
