This was our fourth Oceania cruise and we have become accustomed to the high standard of service and food. One disadvantage of going ashore in a tender/life boat is that high waves will keep you onboard. That happened on one stop in ... Read more

Third cruise on the Marina. I love a new ship no smells or mold. Penthouse 1 a perfect size for a longer cruise. Butler and cleaning staff were excellent. Room under Waves Grill a bit too much noise at times. Gym and trainer excellent. ... Read more

A last minute decision to take a cruise led to us discovering Oceania's Regatta. What a lucky find! There are only a few ships taking interesting cruises from our home port of Fremantle and as we had never seen New Zealand, our travel ... Read more

We had booked this cruise almost a year ago but upgraded from Concierge to Penthouse when the opportunity came a few months before embarkation. The experience was generally seamless until we returned to Sydney airport and joined the ... Read more

This was our fourth cruise and first with Oceania. We did not use the cruise lines air arrangements and took their credit instead so as to have more flexibility. This enabled us to arrive in Auckland two days before the cruise to adjust ... Read more

Our background: We are a Danish couple in the mid-late 50s, and this cruise was our first cruise ever. For that reason, I obviously cannot compare the cruise to any previous cruises, but I can compare it to our expectations, and after ... Read more
