Oceana, formerly Ocean Princess, is the fourth sister to Princess' Cruises Sun Princess, Dawn Princess and Sea Princess. I have not sailed on a P&O ship but I have been on Sea Princess, and since she sails part of the year for P&O I can't imagine her being much different from when she sails for Princess. Which is a clumsy way of saying I would expect Oceana to be at least as nice as a Princess run ship.
As for the ship itself, many of us here at cruise-chat think the Sun Class ships are the ideal ship; large enough to have all the amenities you would expect from a luxury cruise ship, yet small enough to be more intimate and easy to get around.
I can't for the life of me imagine someone calling the ship "irritating". I would have to hear more to know how to even respond to a comment like that.
Personally, I love the Sun Class ships, and considering P&O's reputation and experience I would not hesitate to sail on any of their ships.

The Ocean Princess, now the Oceana, was the ship on which I took my first cruise. I fell so in love with that ship! I returned for a short coastal cruise on her during a repositioning, right before she left Princess. This class of ship is perfect (for me).

I'd love to sail that ship again but I know nothing about P&O.

I can't imagine anyone being anything other than quite comfortable on this ship. The quote offered, referring to an irritating atmosphere, perhaps is directed more to the passengers or staff. ???

judy27, if you loved Ocean Princess but are not sure about P&O you can still sail on Ocean's three sister ships, Sun, Dawn and Sea Princess which still sail for Princess.
