We sailed from Valparaiso to Tahiti in January 2016. This was our first Oceania cruise. I doubt we would sail with Oceania again. First thing was their loss leader concept on their brochures. Advertise a low fare and when you try to ... Read more

Note: we only did the 18 day portion of this longer voyage, i.e., Valparaiso to Papeete. After a many years hiatus from cruising (due to professional responsibilities), retirement found us back in the cruise world. Fortunately, several ... Read more

Being experienced cruise guests, we were very disappointed by our first Oceania cruise. The atmosphere on board was boring, we felt being treated like bank accounts, which are debited by every staff contact. Worst was our experience ... Read more

This was our fourth cruise with Oceania and the third time we occupied an "Oceania Suite". We always book our own pre-cruise travel and hotels therefore this review is confined to the cruise itself. Marina is a beautiful ship, ... Read more

We had a wonderful time on the Buenos Aires to Valparaiso cruise. Oceania does a great job of providing a spacious cabin, we had a verandah, delicious food, all the specialty restaurants are excellent and we had some memorable meals in ... Read more

Took the Southern Wonders cruise from Buenos Aires to Valparaiso and absolutely loved it. A fabulous itinerary!!!! The weather and waters cooperated beautifully - only one really rough day and night. Took both Marina tours and independent ... Read more

We sailed from Rio to Valparasio. We had previously sailed on the Marina 4 years ago during the summer of her maiden year. The ship is in excellent shape with beautiful art work and tasteful decor. We can't say enough about the Crew, ... Read more

Sailed 10 day cruise from Rio to Buenos Aries. We haved sailed on multiple lines before but Oceania has my vote as "favorite." Ship is smaller than other ships we have sailed with about 1200 passengers, is very low key and very ... Read more

We started the cruise with a ATL-JNB flight aboard Delta. We stayed at the Oceania suggested hotel of 54 on Bath in JNB for two nights. The hotel is excellent. As part of our cruise we booked Oceania's pre-cruise tour to the Chobe Game ... Read more

Pre-Cruise This cruise began in the south of France, where we’ve visited often. Rather than fly directly to Nice, we decided to spend several days in Paris prior to beginning the cruise. We used Oceania’s Air Deviation ... Read more

Below the neck line, creature comforts are good. The cabin was spacious, well furnished and with an excellent bathroom, all extremely comfortable. The food was also some of the best cruise food we have experienced; there is a main ... Read more

We have done many cruises but this was our first experience on Oceania. We had heard good things about the cruise line and the ship so were really looking to it even though we had been to most of the ports of call before. It was a real ... Read more

Advice - do not have a suite on deck 11, ours, 11031, was under the smoking area and lounger area and at night there was constant noise from the late night smokers and deck hands moving the loungers. Deck 11 suites also have a big overhang ... Read more

We had high expectations for our Oceania Cruise on the Marina. We had heard many wonderful things about this cruise line and were excited to finally be sailing with them. This cruise did not meet our expectations. We have been fortunate ... Read more

I did so much research in preparation for this cruise so wanted to add detail to help others who are considering Oceana Marina. Overall, I think the trick is to work around the weaknesses of this cruise to get the best experience but for ... Read more

Overall experience Only good - for the price we paid I felt that the cruise was average. The ship is elegant, but very dark. Food standards are good but not what you read on the reviews. Room We went concierge class which ... Read more

We are a retired couple that took the cruise for the 20 port visits, with the expectation that we would see and enjoy many new places. The ship itself was excellent. Embarkation was easy and the veranda stateroom was large enough to be ... Read more

We booked our trip through a travel agent who strongly advised cruising on one of Oceania's new ships. Thankfully, they made advanced reservations in the restaurants. Our meal at Ginger ended with us walking out of the dining room when our ... Read more

We had food and service issues from day 1. Chipped glassware, and a string or hair in my dessert, in the main dining room. Raw hamburgers at the grill for lunch, not once, but twice. Nothing was ever served hot, just warm, and the ice ... Read more

I was looking forward to cruising on Oceania because of it's reputation for excellent food and Customer service. I was sorely disappointed! The food was mediocre at best. Overcooked, bland, boring salads and uninteresting menu choices ... Read more
