Marina San Fran to Miami

Sail Date: February 2011
Destination: Panama Canal & Central America
Embarkation: San Francisco

The Marina is a wonderful ship - attention to detail is amazing along with the craftsmanship. The food, as usual for Oceania is first class - and the staff in the restaurants are so nice.

The trip through the Panama Canal is something that everyone should do once in a lifetime - it was worth it, even though the previous ports in Mexico were not outstanding for us.

The cabin staff, again as usual, were fabulous - they could not do enough for us and kept trying to make sure that everything was OK.

Of course, there were a few nits - but they are the usual Oceania, - Internet cost, expensive tours, so-so entertainment.

We met a lot of nice people, and enjoyed the dining experience with different folks most of the time.

Terrace cafe is our favorite, next the main dining room. The speciality restaurants were fine.

We arrived in Miami with instructions to get out of our cabins by 8am and be off the boat starting at 8.30am - then we were all held More hostage for about an hour. (Does anyone know why??) We missed our flight back to California - needless to say we were not happy. Disappointing first outing on Marina. Less

Cabin review: Marina Conciege Level Veranda Deck Nine 9077

Cabin overall is quite adequate - bedding, layout, bathroom generally very high quality. Safe is good. Carpet and furniture fine. Drawers are not long enough under the TV TV won't rotate - the outlet is in the wrong place Lots and lots of nits, - but overall, excellent - if they fix the nits would be fabulous. Some of the nits would be difficult to fix though!

Went on a small boat - had a fun time and saw some wales. (This was an OK ships tour)

Took a ships walking tour which was very good. Enjoyed the old town and walking around the churches and museums. They did a folk dance for us which was very good.

We took the public bus which was a lot of fun and cheap! We saw all the places on the ships tour for $15 each versus $150 on the boat!

Had fun horseback riding with a ships tour - this was a good day and we drank - just a little!

Great port for a day's visit - we toured the aircraft carrier - the walk along the harbor was very nice and easy to do off the ship
