I've cruised before, but my husband had not. I wanted to take an excellent cruise to convince him this is a great way to vacation. It worked; we booked another cruise before this cruise ended. We choose our own air and own pre-cruise ... Read more

This was our first Oceania cruise. We have been On about 80 cruises so can make a comparison. We went because we wanted the "culinary" experience. We were mostly pleased. On the buffet one could find, on different nights, crab ... Read more

We booked this cruise nearly a year before as a 50th Birthday present! Booked through a U.K. based travel agent and all preparation went well. We have sailed mainly with R.C.I. and Princess before but wanted to see if the advertised ... Read more

17 night cruise started in Papeete. Easter Island was on the itinerary for this 17 night voyage. It was the only reason I chose this particular cruise. We were due to have two days on the island. Having arrived on time the Captain ... Read more

We chose Oceania because of the itinerary. We have never been to the South Pacific or Easter Island before. With only about 800 passengers aboard, embarkation was swift. We were early so we didn't have access to our cabin but there ... Read more

We chose this cruise primarily because the itinerary included Easter Island, but also because of Oceania's reputation for upscale cruising and wonderful food. What a disappointment this turned out to be! Although the food more than lived ... Read more

I chose this cruise lines because I thought they were above average and I was greatly disappointed. I paid a much higher price on this cruise line than others and it WAS NOT worth it. The food was average. The entertainment was not ... Read more

Our sailing from Papeete to Lima was our 5th cruise with Oceania but our 1st on a larger O class ship. The ship was beautiful and as usual Oceania met our top three criteria with their wonderful crew, excellent cuisine and a super ... Read more

I have read some of the early reviews of the Papeete to Lima segment of the Marina Cruise. As usual, on certain points, I feel we were traveling on the ship in another dimension! It was wonderful cruise, with reality settling in from ... Read more

We arranged our own travel, so no input on Oceania's air scheduling. We enjoyed the ship, the size of the stateroom (Penthouse Suite) and the tub in the bath. The food was good in all venues, service was not. Red Ginger was our favorite ... Read more

Sailed from Papeete, French Polynesia to Lima Peru. Cuisine on ship was unbelievable. Top quality food. No charge for specialty restaurant dining in the four specialty restaurants on board. Main dining room was excellent also. ... Read more

My husband and I really enjoyed the Marina because they take such good care of their passengers. I wish we would have arrived in Papeete a day earlier to see that city but didn't want to pay the extra Air Deviation fee. Embarkation in ... Read more

This cruise was to see islands in French Polynesia and travel to Lima via Easter Island. I had wanted to go to Easter Island since college- fifty plus years. This seemed to be a great way to visit. The ship was to be there two days. It ... Read more

Our friends recommended we take this trip. We did the 10 day trip around the Tahitian Islands aboard the Marina. We upgraded to a Penthouse Room and we did fully enjoy the experience of our own butler and the executive lounge. The ... Read more

The ship is in excellent shape now that it has aged a bit. The cabins seem smaller than the 242 sq. feet advertised. Oceania is now being cheap with soap and shampoo--not exactly what you expect from a luxury cruise. Other than that, ... Read more

The service on this ship was outstanding! Staff were very friendly and very helpful. However the general operation of the ship seemed to be sadly lacking. We rarely saw or heard from the captain other than to give us our compass bearing. ... Read more

The Marina is a classy ship that was kept spotless. The highlight of the Marina was the friendliness and service of the crew. Oceania's employee training program must be top notch because every crew member we encountered said yes with a ... Read more

I haven't published a review in some time, as many of the major cruise lines have thousands of reviews already and what can I add? But Oceania doesn't currently have that many reviews up, and certainly not many of this particular cruise ... Read more

This was our second experience on Oceania, the first being the Riviera in the Med. The ship sponsored shore excursions as noted in previous comments were really limited coach tours of the countryside. One described as an extraordinary rail ... Read more

I am a fan of Oceania, having travelled on a few of their ships. I find the cruise line perfect for us, not to big just the right amount of quests on board. We found the ship clean, comfortable and the food excellent, the quality and ... Read more
