We loved the ship, the service was impeccable and the food was very good. I would have to say the food in the main dining was better than the specialty restaurants except for Red Ginger and Jacques which were excellent. The service on ... Read more

Loved this cruise itinerary, great ports. This was our 5th cruise with Oceania, all on the Marina. We noticed food to be exceptional as always in Red Ginger and Jacques but sub-par to what we have experienced previously in Polo and ... Read more

This was our first cruise on Oceania. We chose this ship because of the itinerary, and for that reason it was excellent. At 70, we were probably about average in age, if not on the younger side - there were very few passengers under 50. ... Read more

Found all the ports interesting and accessible from the ship. Cartagena a small city was beautiful and interesting to stroll through right off the ship. Ditto Cadiz. Malaga was breathtaking. We took five excursions with Oceania -- all ... Read more

First time cruising with Oceania and definitely won't be the last. The food was amazing, the staff was very attentive and with only one child onboard there was a whole level of calm that I have never experienced on a cruise before. I ... Read more

This was our third time on Marina and fifth with O. Service and food slipping a bit since they were bought by Norwegian. Food very inconsistent even in each restaurant. Still good but a little less so. Great itineraries make it first ... Read more

This was our first trip on Oceania, and the Marina staff made this an extremely enjoyable voyage. The specialty restaurants were outstanding. In comparison to another luxury line we have sailed on, we did find the lunch buffet to be ... Read more

The itinerary was the attraction as well as the benefits conferred as a result of my cruise status (over 15 with Oceania in the last 5 years.) The service in the cafeteria was sub-par. many of the servers didn't speak adequate ... Read more

I chose for the itinerary and no-charge specialty restaurants. I travel solo and like the choice of several restaurants where I can eat alone or join others. The Penthouse on Marina is very roomy, and you can order dinner in from any of ... Read more

We chose this particular cruise as it was a transoceanic! The ports we wanted to visit were included and the number of sea days we enjoy! Everything about the Marina is perfect! Great sized ship, no lines and after the second day the ... Read more

Oceania is a good cruise line, and the Marina is a lovely ship. There are only 1250 passengers, so people who are wary of the 5000 -passenger vessels would be wise to consiser this company. It is never crowded, even in the Terrace ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it had an interesting itinerary (Cape Verde, Dakar, St. Barts etc) for a transatlantic crossing, and because as a TA it was very cost effective on a per-day basis compared to some other O cruises. This was ... Read more

We chose the cruise because of the addition of Cuba to the itinerary. The cruise, ship, crew, and service were exceptional. Our focus was on the itinerary, so we were out most of the time. Chose late dining to maximize tour ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it was Oceania, and because of its 2 day stay in Cuba. Overall we were not disappointed. It was our fourth Oceania trip, the first on Marina - though we have cruised on Riviera before, her sister ship. The ... Read more

Itinerary - Cuba was fantastic! The service was by far the worst I have ever experienced on any cruise. Too much to say, but a few points can summarize: 1 - when we entered our cabin & began to put our clothes away, the drawers ... Read more

We chose this cruise for a birthday celebration. It was mostly great, but food service at times wasn't. Oceania's Marina was making a stop in Havana, Cuba. We couldn't resist. The ship is beautiful. Our cabin, 9080, was kept clean and neat ... Read more

We jumped on this cruise when we heard it was going to Cuba - the first of the Norwegian line ships to do so. It was also visiting some Central and South American ports we wanted to visit. We had already travelled with Oceania before ... Read more

We were very surprised by the amount of motion that this ship exhibits when under way. On two of the four sea days, it was difficult sleeping overnight due to the sometimes abrupt motion. We have sailed on other ships the same size or ... Read more
