Great ship. No line up at embarkation, just walk up to the ship and register. Asian porridge for breakfast everyday and waffles on order. Lobsters, lamb chops and steak every dinner at terrace cafe besides a wide variety of roasts 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

Ship: The Ship's crew were very polite and professional. The ship overall was very well maintained and a pleasure to be aboard, no sales pitches or unexpected charges as we have had on other cruise lines. Cabin: Very nice, always ... Read more

We travelled with 3 other couples to celebrate our 60th birthdays. Our cabin was very nice and the service in the cabin was very good. Their drink packages are very confusing. My wife and I each bought one only to find out it was for beer ... Read more

A big hunk of my ancestry is from Sweden, and ever since a Swedish cousin came to visit 20 years ago and invited us to a Swedish homecoming, I've wanted to find out more about Scandinavia and the general region that includes the Baltic ... Read more

This would have to be the most difficult review I have undertaken and I know many of you will find it hard to believe, that the following occurred on our first cruise with Oceania, on the fairytales and folklore Baltic cruise. As a past ... Read more

We are not cruisers, but have spent a life time traveling, both for work and pleasure. A day in port was a new concept for us. We chose Oceana because of the large Penthouse stateroom and the culinary recommendations. We were not ... Read more

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

Oceania has several ships and we enjoyed the Marina from South Hampton to Copenhagen. We had a lovely large penthouse suite on 11 th floor, near the Executive lounge. Which was handy for coffee and snacks and conversations. We had 4 ... Read more

We had heard positive things about Oceania and the Marina in particular so when we saw a cruise to a number of locations that we liked we booked a concierge level stateroom for a special occasion. The ship is lovely but we were astounded ... 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

We chose this cruise of Polynesia solely because it was going to Easter Island - a port that few ships go to, and they are usually on a world cruise. We also were interested in going to the Pitcairn Islands, another port which is very ... Read more

We were booked on a 3 week cruise of the Tahitian Islands and missed our trip to Peru the year before and since this one ended in Lima, we thought it was the perfect opportunity to do both. Plus, it was less costly than Celebrity's cruise ... 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 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

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
