We wanted to celebrate our special anniversary in a memorable way, this trip was beyond our expectations. We chose the Marina at the recommendation of friends, and the Baltic cruise was on our bucket list. We were so happy with both ... Read more

This was our third Oceania cruise with trying a more mass market cruise line in between. The difference was startling, and we will stay with Oceania from now on. Our cruise was both stimulating and relaxing. We visited several ... Read more

This was a very average cruise and a real disappointment. WE have cruised many times before with Seabourn, Cunard and RCI, so were eagerly expecting an excellent cruise with Oceania. Not to be. Its a very nice ship and well kept. The ... Read more

Embarkation went very smoothly. As we had not been on a cruise before, we didn't know what to expect. Our first impressions of Marina exceeded our expectations. We were very impressed with what we found on boarding. A magnificent ... Read more

I am normally a serial complainer and fault finder, but Oceania beat me this time !! I went on this cruise which I did on the same ship 2 years ago and had been to most of the ports of call before only one was not worth the effort ... Read more

We had not cruised with Oceania before and were pleasantly surprised. The size of the ship was perfect- not too big, easy to get around and never a line anytime or anywhere. Not even on an elevator.The service from everyone was stellar. ... Read more

Oceania's Marina has the best quality food of the 8 cruise lines we traveled on, but there are major problems in entertainment and excursion policies. We were booked in a Concierge cabin and dined 6 times in specialty restaurants. All ... Read more

We have taken a lot of Oceania cruises and especially like the larger ships, primarily because of the cabins, the large bathrooms, the magnificent common areas and our favorite restaurant, Red Ginger. The food generally is great. 22 nights ... Read more

The staff of the Marina very attentive. We were very pleased with the service provided by the wait staff and our room steward. The wait staff are very busy but we found that they try very hard to please. Our room steward was remarkable in ... Read more

Our fourth voyage on Marina. We love the ship, small enough to feel comfortable with gourmet food. We felt the food was better than our last cruise 2 years ago. This time we had a penthouse suite which was quite comfortable especially the ... Read more

Having been impressed with a lunchtime ship visit in 2015, we found a local cruise at reduced price. The ship was very spacious and clean and well kept... as was the cabin (balcony) but as usual access the storage was not ideal although ... Read more

This was our 5th Oceania Cruise and 3rd on the Marina so we like it a lot. The staff are excellent, the rooms a generous size, the food is really excellent and we don't go for the entertainment. A nice set of ports, starting in Stockholm. ... Read more

This was our first cruise, so we don't have anything to compare with, but it was such a good experience we can't wait to go again. We don't drink much so didn't bother with a drinks package, and liked that other than alcohol everything ... Read more

This cruise was chosen for the ports of call in the Baltic and only having 1 sea day. This was my first time with Oceania and I had previously sailed with Azamara. The Marina is twice as big as Azamara but you didn't notice it had 1,200 ... Read more

The ship in general is looking tired and needing a refit. On deck 14, some of the windows were loose due to rust having eaten away most of the fasteners. Decks need some refinishing but the crew were diligent about trying to make it look ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we wanted to visit as many of the Baltic countries as possible and because we liked the variety of Excursions. We also chose it because Marina seemed a very gracious and well appointed ship. We chose it ... Read more

Disembarkation was easy at each port, even for those not taking Oceania tours. (Would not recommend using Oceania tours a la carte for St Pete, as each tour would return back to ship through all the traffic.) Heard of no virus ... Read more

I agree with another reviewer who pointed out how tired the cabins were. Our carpeting was frayed, there was rust along the door, furniture was scoffed and the pillows were lumpy. The PH cabins have a spacious, lovely walk in closet and ... Read more

This was my first cruise on a large ship. (My first cruise was on a brand new Junk in Ha Long Bay, so it is a different experience.) We arrived in Copenhagen a day early and explored the city one afternoon and the next morning, which was ... Read more

This was a very nice cruise with excellent staff. The stateroom was fine. The bathroom had a tub with a shower in addition to the typical shoe box size shower. So, that was very good. The food was very good. The best surprise was for ... Read more

We are a still working couple (55 and 53 years old) who are just beginning to cruise. The ship had many older travelers but we also found many travelers in mid-50-mid-60s that were active and social. We didn't see too many children or ... Read more
