Sailed February 2016
We flew from Brisbane and stayed overnight in Auckland NZ. From there it was only a 5 hour flight to Papeete where we stayed at the Intercontinental for 2 nights. It is a nice place but expensive like all French Polynesia. The lagoon which ... Read more

To put it in a nutshell before our cruise on Oceania's Marina in the South Pacific, I was vehemently "anti-cruise." No more. At least not a relatively small ship such as the Marina. I'd sail on the Marina again in a flash. I ... Read more

This was our first cruise with Oceania and I have to admit to being a little disappointed with the company. The Itinerary was great, although you have to be prepared for a lot of sea days (10) for the opportunity to visit Easter Island. ... Read more

First time on Oceania but about 25 cruises under our belt ranging from Azamara, Celebrity, Princess, etc. We had really looked forward to this cruise based on the itinerary (Tahiti) and the Oceania's reputation for excellent food. ... Read more

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

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
