Default Guest speakers on Oriana (and other questions)

Hi all, we are cruising on Oriana on 21/4/13. Not been on her before and I was wondering if we can find out in advance who the guest speakers are?

Also, are there free Pilates or stretching classes available?

Lastly (for now ), are there decent hairdryers in the cabins (inside) or are they those silly ones fixed to the wall in the bathroom?

They dont publish who the quest speakers will be pre cruise in case they cancel... you will get a speaker sometimes two if there are lots of sea days. You also get a Port Lecturer as well ....

Pilates classes often take place if somebody qualified is working in the Spa. There is a charge for the classes.

The hair dryers are in in the drawer of the dressing table. BUT I prefer my own one !!! they are quite good but I get static in my hair with them and prefer to bring my own...

I have been on Oriana twice and both times the hair drier was in the drawer, but my daughter found that some of the cabins had the silly ones on the wall.

There will be a small charge for Pilates classes. I have always found the hairdryers just fine - they are in a drawer as the others have said - even in my brand new single cabin last year.

I have lots of recent photos of Oriana here is you fancy a look.
