P & O Oceana Inside cabin A316 - NC Grade

Cabin A316 was situated on Arcadia deck 11 forward, in a cross passage between port and starboard. It was sufficiently spacious for our needs and we were perfectly happy with it.

Our stewardess Maria was from the Philippines was very pleasant and made sure that our cabin was kept spotlessly clean.
We were supplied with big fluffy white towels and The White Company 'Flowers' toiletries.
The shower was OK but seemed to take an age to run hot. We also had to get the aircon seen to as it was very cold in the cabin at first, no matter how we tried to adjust it.
There was a fridge which housed 2 bottles of complimentary water. The TV was fine although we never watch it whilst on a cruise. It would have been nice if we could have accessed our account on it though but no such luck. :(
We had a kettle with endless supplies of Twinings teas and Nescafe coffee. The was a tray of sweets in the cabin and the customary chocs were left on our pillows every evening.

Apologies for the blurred photo. :oops:

There was plenty of drawer and wardrobe space so all in all, we were quite comfortable.

Along the corridor further forward was cabin A204 where Stan and May were situated. The layout was similar to ours but they had less wardrobe space and more drawer space. They also had more space between the beds.

Very comfortable :D Although we don’t watch TV on a ship I like to keep bridge webcam on the screen. The only ship I have travelled on where you could use TV to keep tabs on your account (and order breakfast) was Balmoral. It was very convenient.

Your inside cabin looks more spacious than either I've had on Oceana. The last one on Oceana I felt was cramped and a poor layout. A stool at the dressing table as no room for a chair as the bathroom door was right next to it. :roll:

We must have been lucky then Sue. Obviously it not so much about the square footage of the cabin that is crucial but the layout.
Stan and May had lots more space between their beds but in my opinion, that is wasted space.

We don't spend that much time in a cabin but some layouts are definitely better than others! At least the TVs were in a sensible place...... In a unit at the foot of the bed so easy to watch...... Although don't watch that much. ;)

Looks like you had everything one needs Jill, plus put cleanliness at the top of the page, wardrobes, drawers, fridge and kettle a bonus! Looking at your account on TV is available n the Solstice class ships, but wouldn't rate that as top of my list of necessities.
