We were traveling a two mature couples who have taken twelve cruises in the last 10 or so years. We booked with Oceania because we were told they had wonderful food and great service but were a little less expensive than Seabourn. As it ... Read more

This was our second cruise on Nautica and 8th cruise on Oceania so we were expecting a certain level of service and quality. Many cases these were met but there were several, cases where they were not. Obviously -- lots new staff on ... Read more

After many cruises with Oceania, this cruise was a large disappointment. To summarize: This cruise being 20 days with 8 days at sea plus another day with port arrival at 4 pm, we were assured by Oceania there would be a bridge director on ... Read more

(I´m Swedish. More of a 2*-man, than 5*) Cruising ranks low, when I plan holidays. Nevertheless I now and then cruise. Hithertho always with different lines (RCCL,HAL, Costa, NCL). Oceania was a step up. In many aspects. From ... Read more

Enjoyed a wonderful 10 days aboard Nautica. Could not find fault with any aspect of the ship. Cabins clean and very comfortable, food in all the restaurants was great, although Polo was a bit of a disappointment on our final night. The ... Read more

This was our first cruise with Oceania, after a few more 'family' orientated cruises in years past. Where to start! Embarkation: A little slow - but letting us board and going straight to lunch was a good start. Cabin: We had a cabin ... Read more

I arrived in Bangkok a week before the cruise to take advantage of a pre-cruise land excursion (Oceania's) to Angkor Wat in Cambodia. The next day the Concierge arranged for a cab for the day, which took me to several temples I wanted to ... Read more

Our first Oceania cruise but 'seasoned' cruisers, we would sum up the experience as wonderful. First, the itinerary, because we know you are likely just like us, choosing the cruise company based on the itinerary. We wanted an over-view of ... Read more

This was our 7th Oceania cruise and this is the first time we have been somewhat disappointed. I could go through everything day by day, but the bottom line is that the quality of the food was not what we have become accustomed to. They ... Read more

We just completed our second cruise with Oceania, having previously sailed on Riviera in the Meditteranean. This time, we chose Asia. We had done some of China before, but wanted to see how it was changed. We also had not been to Japan, ... Read more

Went with Oceania from Capetown to Singapore . Don't do it sounds exotic but African ports other than Capetown not worth doing . Maldives and Seychelles were good but not enough to warrant this expense and time . As far as Oceania goes ... Read more

Enjoyed the cruise but felt that Oceania kept up to its usual lacklustre entertainment. No surprises there at all. Specialty restaurants, particularly Toscana were not up to Oceania's usual standards. Orders were mixed up, table ignored ... Read more

Firstly, there was a lot of talk on our board, prior to the cruise regarding whether to have a Yellow Fever jab. It was a no brainer for us. Had the shot, only reaction was a sore arm. We were asked to show our International Vaccination ... Read more

We just returned from our fourth Oceania cruise, this one aboard Nautica, which was also our first "O" ship back in 2008. Things are only getting better. The ship, built in 2000 and refurbished in 2010, is due to go into dry dock next ... Read more

This was our first Oceania Cruise. We picked it because of the itinerary Istanbul to Athens. Pros: We loved the smaller cruise ship with less then 700 passengers. Pick-up at the airport was prompt. Check-in and out was a ... Read more

Oceania has the most comprehensive itinerary for the Baltic, so be prepared to be tired. Every day but one, you are in port. But that was why we chose the cruise. Who would think we would visit places like Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania ... Read more
