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

We have cruised many times on other cruise lines. We chose Oceania because of the destination and previous positive Oceania experiences from friends. The cabins were very comfortable , refrigerators well stocked, and the food was ... 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

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

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

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 chose this cruise because we had always wanted to go to the Baltic especially St. Petersburg. We were happy to see Oceania sailed there. We have sailed from Tahiti to Lima on the Marina three years ago. The Marina did not disappoint. ... 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

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
