This was our 8th Oceania cruise over 13 years. We saw this cruise line rise to excellence, then fall recently under the holding company to low levels, and now is back to it excellence. The food is by far the best on the seas. We recently ... Read more

The Good: We were in an A1 category so early embarkation was a plus. Long lineups that moved quickly by pleasant and informative attendants. As there appeared to be a norovirus on the previous cruise, we were told to go to Terrace ... Read more

We wanted to give Oceania another chance and so glad we did. Our first cruise with them was to Alaska last year...not their fault, but the weather was horrid. So that made the cruise not so fun! BUT this time our weather to the ... Read more

We are Celebrity Elite members. We wanted to try a more "upscale" cruise line and thought Oceania would be the best choice. Not too stuffy but a little more elegant. We arrived at the cruiseport in Miami around 1:30pm. ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the itinerary and the time of year. Also it was our first time with Oceania. Our cabin was an oversized Balcony Stateroom. Our balcony was twice the size of the others. Our stateroom was beautiful and the bed and ... Read more

Service was excellent. Conceige attendee was extremely helpful and the conciege lounge was a great place to gather. Watched the Super Bowl with friend there instead of the crowded public rooms. Smaller less populated ship made for ... Read more

We have friends who love Oceania, and Oceania was enthusiastically promoted by our TA. We are trying all the lines that do World Cruises in the next 12 months so this is one. We were late getting in to rooms, until 5:45 pm, due to a Coast ... Read more

Our 7th cruise with Oceania, first on Marina, so we really like the offer. First cruise since the Norwegian take over. Enjoyable cruise overall, although very late embarkation and hygiene 'lockdown' for the first couple of days, coupled ... Read more

Wanted to go through Panama Canal and wanted a longer cruise. We've been working up in the length of time as we move toward retirement. Heard good things about Ocean and it fit the other criteria so we booked. Food is their claim to ... Read more

We chose this itinerary and line because of our prior experience and because of the Panama Canal crossing and an opportunity to see the Mayan Ruins in Mexico. The ship itself is beautiful and very well maintained, but as a overall ... Read more

We chose this cruise to see an excellent view of S. America aboard a high rated quality ship with a mid to high price point. We were not disappointed in the itinerary, food quality, service, ship command, and overall ratings. We had ... Read more

My wife and I wanted to experience cruising on Oceania as we had heard much about their ships and the dining reputation. This was our first Oceania cruise but our 10th overall on various other cruise lines. We chose this route from ... Read more

Had sailed on Marina Spring 2015, this trip around South America just wasn't the same. We enjoyed ourselves immensely on our 2015 trip and chose the same ship and same cabin (Conciege Veranda) for this holiday journey. We arrived ... Read more

We chose this cruise as we had been all over the word apart from South America. What better way to experience this continent but on the Oceania Marina. Unfortunately we arrived in to Buenos Aires to be greeted by a strike of bag ... Read more

I chose this cruise for the itinerary and the rave reviews about the food, plus the total O Choices package made it irresistible. The food experience was uneven. Sometimes the food was very good and sometimes it wasn't that great. For ... Read more

We chose this voyage based on timing and itinerary. It marked a return to Oceania after our first voyage on Riviera in 2012. We chose the same PH3 category as before and were very happy with our suite. On future cruises we will consider ... Read more

Our cruise started with tours in Buenos Aries and the Tigre Delta. All excursions with the ship were well organized with good guides. In two ports we got tours with local operators we saw at the pier and they were satisfying-and half the ... Read more

We had some unusual circumstances occur in our family which ended up with Mom and Dad being able to finally take that long-awaited cruise to the Patagonia Region of South America. It was the first time we were solo over the holidays, and ... Read more

This is our 2nd time aboard the Marina. In 2015 we traveled the Baltics for 10 days. Because of that experience, Oceania was chosen again. What an amazing trip! Overall, service was exceptional. The Cruise Director, Peter, was upbeat ... Read more

We had a good-to-very-good cruise experience, but the itinerary was great so all in all it gets an excellent rating. This cruise was over the holidays, Buenos Aires to Valparaiso, Chile. The ship was full, but unlike some other holiday ... Read more

This was our first Oceania cruise- and we're glad we did! I have been hearing about how great Oceania was from friends for several years, but we have become quite partial to our familiar Celebrity. We've also cruised with Seabourne, and ... Read more

The itinerary was a main reason for taking this cruise. The staff and food are exceptional. My only complaint is the size and layout of the cabins. We are in a concierge cabin and it's too small. The bathroom is just okay with a ... Read more

We prefer slightly smaller ships but in the same or better class. This was our first exposure to Oceania and we were comparing this experience to Seabourn. The ship was very nice and the Penthouse Suite was just a bit larger than the ... Read more
