All verandah's are basically the same. No real value to upgrading unless concierge does something special for you. We have done the Penthouse suites and they are very nice. Read entire member review >>
We chose this rare cabin for location on the bow. This cabin and 8001 are the only two on the ship between two suites. Because of the weather and itinerary I would not choose this cabin again because of rough seas, riding the waves and pounding crashes on sides. However, this attitude changed multiple times when we were the first to witness the stunning scenery and solitude afforded in this location. Watching the moon rise to a full sky of stars, the glacier in Patagonia, coming into ports or heading out to sunsets with a full view. On the second cruise our cabin was premier through the Panama Canal and on sunny days for privacy and solitude. Read entire member review >>
Spacious, clean, attractive, comfortable. Experienced no problems sleeping, except in port in Buenos Aires overnight before we sailed. The port noise kept us awake a lot of the night. Bed VERY comfortable. Bathroom lovely and large for a ship. Closet space adequate, although the doors would slide open in rough seas and closet lights would come on....only minor annoyance. Balcony was decent size...we could both sit outside. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was a balcony level on the starboard side. We were disappointed that our view from the balcony was often blocked in port by storage containers and limited views the majority of the time. However the cabin itself was very nice and the steward service was excellent! So glad they have both a bathtub and shower that are separate as well as a variety of pillow softness to have as options.

Our cabin was really spacious and looked exactly as it did in the brochure. It was very comfortable and we loved the verandah, especially as we were on the port side in 5 of the 8 ports and got great views during sail aways. The table and chairs on the verandah were of high quality and very comfortable. Loved the bathroom which was a great size also. The bedding was very good and we loved receiving the Belgian chocolates every day. Loved having a couch in the room for a more homely feel. The attention given to cleaning our room by our housekeeper was outstanding. Read entire member review >>
Tons of storage to include under-the-bed open area--didn't use 75% of it. Comfortable bed in room (outlets over each bedside table are European style) along with couch & table, desk & chair, golf umbrella, robe & slippers, safe, 32 hangers, shower with removable & rain shower heads plus separate tub, retractable clothes line, amenities. Room service is only food available from 5-6:30pm from after tea to dinner. Cruisers can earn "O" points from trivia, golf, shuffleboard, & ping pong tournaments that are redeemed for Oceania merchandise. Food is excellent, & nice that specialty dining is part of cruise package. Read entire member review >>
VERY well appointed with loads of storage space very cleverly arranged.
Lovely bathroom - better than many hotels - with a walk in shower and luxury towels and toiletries
Lard=e comfortable balcony Read entire member review >>
Spacious, comfortable with a nice bathroom, plenty of closet space and a large balcony. Too close to a service door that was constantly opening and closing and disruptive especially in the morning if you are late risers as we are. Read entire member review >>
huge amount of storage, not to far from elevators. We did hear some "bangs" which I believe came from the room next door when they opened their sleeper couch. Great bathroom. Read entire member review >>
Attractive, quiet, but poorly designed. Cramped bathroom, and problems getting to storage space. Door to balcony broke during cruise, and it took three calls and sharp language to convince them to fix it right away. Read entire member review >>
The stateroom was fine. It was the other parts of the ship we didn't like.The ship's decor was old fashioned and a bit 'dark'. Food quality was the only redeeming feature.Entertainment was very sparse and not too enjoyable. Read entire member review >>
Was in cabin 8100... perfect location... mid ship and was beautiful... I for one loved the huge tub... left balcony door open to hear the open while taking a bubble bath... now thats relaxing :) there are outlets.... the one near the vanity in sittin area is about too little for two plugs, but it you look where the tv is plugged in, there is one there and one in bathroom... just gotta pop off the plate... ask your steward... Loved the cabin, and the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in... huge closet too for a ship... Read entire member review >>
We were towards the back, in between the middle. Very quiet as other cabins closer to middle seemed noisy due to engines. Nice sized balcony, great bath tub for bathing. Bed was comfortable and the room temperature was perfect. Plenty of hangers and closet space and drawers. There were times however that the room had a damp smell, we could not figure out where it was coming from. Some of the public areas had the slight odor as well. Read entire member review >>
Great location at the very front of the ship between 2 suites so balcony was large, but that's where the anchors are located so you can expect noise when arriving in the ports, sometimes as early as 6 am. The plus is this cabin is in a quiet location, away from the hallways that could be noisy. Read entire member review >>
Can't imagine a better layout or more efficient use of space than what Oceania has provided in the veranda class staterooms. The ample drawer and closet space were more than sufficient for a 12 day cruise. While we heard some fuss at the size of the shower, the fact that both shower and full size tub WITH vanity containing built-ins was nothing short of what you'd find in a full size hotel bath.

7041..Good location to stairway and elevator, quiet. Cabin is about the same size as Celebrity Solstice class ship- Aqua class..no bid deal. It's not the sq ft but the use of space that counts. Balcony adequate. Shower is horrible, so small that a normal sized person can barely turn around. Everyone complained of this. Safe so high that you cannot see the contents..lucky for them if you leave money in the bottom. Storage adequate. Lighting poor especially in bathroom. Food a disappointment except is specialties where there is no UP charge. Some of the service a big disappointment. Cruise tours..DO NOT TAKE THEM...very overpriced, even for transfers. Entertainment..poor, amateur productions. Casino..awful machine choices for those of us who consider that our evening entertainment. First time Oceania for us..stewardess did not introduce herself.Overall, a poor value and Oceania will not see us again. We are experienced cruisers on good ships. Read entire member review >>
8087, We were offered upgrade to this cabin for $600. It was worth it. It is located Mid ships and very smooth. The door to veranda is very hard to open but chairs are great and the design is what your going to find in any room in this category. We also had a chance to visit friends in room 1001 which is Vista Suite. Although the room is great they thought the wind factor kept them from enjoying the huge outside deck on the front of the ship. Read entire member review >>
