" Your chance to purchase and own unique piece of history " P& O S. S. Oriana Ship Nautical Pocket Guide Who and What to Tip Fair Condition 3 inches in Width & 5 Inches in Length when folded in half. I have looked after this for many years handed down to me in fantastic condition considering its age. SS Oriana was the last of the Orient Steam Navigation Company's ocean liners. She was built at Vickers- Armstrongs, Barrow-in- Furness, Cumbria, England and launched on 3 November 1959 by Princess Alexandra. Originally resplendent with her owners' traditional corn coloured hull, Oriana appeared as an Orient Line ship until 1966, when that company was fully absorbed into the P& O group. Faced with unprofitable around the world passenger routes, the P& O white hulled Oriana was operated as a full-time cruise ship from 1973. Between 1981 and her retirement from service five years later, Oriana was based at Sydney, Australia, operating to Pacific Ocean and South- East Asian ports. Deemed surplus to P& O's requirements in early 1986, the vessel was sold to become a floating hotel and tourist attraction, first in Japan and later in China. As a result of damage sustained from a severe storm whilst in the port of Dalian in 2004, SS Oriana was finally sold to local breakers in 2005.
