Marina Transatlantic NYC to Dover
Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)
We took most of the ship's excursions, which were all quite good, but seemed more expensive than on other lines we have experienced. They were no better or worse, no more or less crowded than on the other lines. We met quite a number of fellow travelers who either arranged for outside tours or did not take any excursions at all. I think Oceania should look into the price of their excursions, as it appears that many fell that they are too expensive. Several similar cruise lines are now including excursions as part of their price.
As for the enrichment activities--the talks by the outside lecturers were great, especially the music professor. The cooking classes were interesting and the Chef was very fun, with delicious recipes. We also liked the Bridge lessons and thought the teacher, Barbara, was very generous with her handouts and very knowledgeable and interesting in her presentations.
All in all, it was a great cruise! Less
Our cabin was fine -- spacious enough, with a nice bathroom. It was mostly too cool to use the balcony, but we appreciated the extra space. We also liked being able to get American news channels for most of the trip, which we were not able to get on most other cruise lines outside of the U.S.
