Overview Itinerary
The Ship
Oceana was launched in 2000 and received a makeover in 2012. This family-friendly ship is a firm favourite with guests who adore her casual, relaxed atmosphere and inimitable style. From the moment you step on board, you'll be amazed by the atrium with its palm trees and glass-fronted lifts. There is also an array of restaurants, ten bars and lounges, modern sports and leisure facilities, and chic staterooms to make each cruise enjoyable. Days at sea are the perfect time to explore. Discover four pools and six whirlpools, a sports court with basketball hoops and a golf driving range. The rejuvenating Oasis Spa offers pampering hot stone massages or you can treat yourself to a new hair-style in Oasis Salon. Lose yourself in a book at the library, get active with a session at the gym, or indulge in retail therapy at the Emporium, Bond Street and Regent Street shops. Cruises on Oceana offer fantastic luxury and style.

Food
Oceana is a food lover’s favourite. The ship has two main dining rooms - Adriatic Restaurant offers traditional club dining with early or late sittings, while Ligurian Restaurant provides the same menu but more flexible dining times. For something a bit different, Café Jardin has an evening menu created by Marco Pierre White, with Italian sharing dishes and a Mediterranean wine selection. Café Jardin also offers a pre-ordered children's menu between 17:15 and 17:45 daily. Horizon Grill is located by the pools, where you can grab yourself a range of gourmet snacks during the day and, in the evening, dine more intimately under the stars. For a more casual affair, head to The Plaza for a dedicated buffet restaurant serving a wide variety of dishes from around the world. The open-air Beach House looks across the pools and serves burgers, hot dogs and jacket potatoes by day, and tasty seafood and steak dishes by night. For ice cream lovers, there is Sundaes — the dedicated ice cream bar.

Drink
Riviera Bar is the place to socialise both day and night, combining refreshing poolside drinks with pre-dinner cocktails and relaxing music. Enjoy some downtime with a speciality coffee at Explorers Bar or unwind with drinks and a twirl around the dance floor at Tiffany's. Magnums Champagne Bar serves champagne by the glass or bottle. For that traditional 'English pub' feel, Yacht and Compass Bar offers a wide range of beers and ales, pub quizzes and live bands each evening. Winners' sports bar sits next to Monte Carlo Casino and is the perfect spot for a celebratory cocktail.

Entertainment
Oceana offers an eclectic mix of entertainment after dinner. Footlights Theatre hosts two performances a night with West End inspired shows, cabaret acts and spectacular dance numbers on stage. Afterwards follow the crowds to Starlight's Show Lounge for dancing and live music. Risk a few pennies at the slot machines and blackjack tables at Monte Carlo Casino or head to Le Club to dance and party until the early hours.
Day 1: UK to Dubai, UAE
Fly from your chosen UK airport to Dubai and be privately transferred to your Jumeirah Beach hotel for a four-night stay.
Day 2 – 4: Dubai, UAE
Your Arabian adventure begins in Dubai, the world's fastest-growing global city with a vibrancy and a majesty all of its own. You’ll find all kinds of wonderful modern attractions here, including, at 2,722 feet, the world’s tallest building, Burj Khalifa, plus cutting-edge bars and nightclubs, a man made island in the shape of a giant palm tree, and unparalleled shopping opportunities.
Day 5 - 6: Dubai, UAE (Embarkation Day)
After check out, be privately transferred to the port to board P&O Oceana for your ten-night cruise.
Day 7 - 8: Abu Dhabi, UAE
In the space of a generation Abu Dhabi has managed to transform herself from small fishing village into the thriving metropolis of today. A dramatic skyline of modern skyscrapers and exquisite hotels provides a contrast with the mosques and bazaars of old that can still be found here. Take a ride out to Ferrari World, the world’s largest indoor theme park providing thrills and fun for all the family, or why not take a Jeep Safari through the sand dunes surrounding the city.
Day 9: Sir Bani Yas Island, UAE
On Sir Bani Yas, just like on the islands of Dalma and the six nearby Discovery Islands, an enormous nature reserve has been designated to species in danger of extinction, be they from the Arabic peninsula or from Africa. In particular, on Sir Bani Yas you will be able to observe rare animals inside a protected area where the great majority of the animals, including giraffes, flamingos and cheetahs to name just a few, live freely.
Day 10: At Sea

Get up close to nature at Al Areen Wildlife Park & Reserve and enjoy splashing times at Wahooo! Water Park. Discover the world of cultured pearls at Heritage Centre and Museum of Pearl Diving.
Day 12: At Sea
Day 13: Muscat, Oman
Muscat, unlike a lot of her Arabian cousins, has managed to retain a scene of authenticity to the old ways. Where her more notable cousins have arrived into the 21st century with a skyline dominated by skyscrapers, shopping malls and hotels, Muscat has retained a lot more of her traditions and values of old. It is this aspect that allows her to captivate guests time and time again. Sail into the preserved historical waterfront and experience the traditional architecture of this calming seascape, hike through the terracotta coloured mountains or even visit the old town and discover the traditional souk and spice markets.
Day 14: Khasab, Oman
One of the hidden gems of The Middle East, Oman will have you captivated from the moment she appears on the distant horizon. From the moment you sail into Khasab you will immediately be greeted by a striking Arabian military fort bewitching the harbour skyline enchanting you into to romance of the area. Scuba dive in the crystal clear waters surrounding the area or take a boat trip into the Fjords of Arabia, experiencing the breathtaking coast that is known as 'the Norway of the Gulf' and see if you can even spot a pod of dolphins playing nearby.
Day 15: Dubai, UAE to UK
Today your cruise comes to an end. Disembark and be privately transferred to the airport for your return flight back to the UK.
