This is our fifth with Oceania, only one on the smaller ships. Love the space and amenities on the big ones. The main selling points are the excellent staff and food and the fact that most things are included in the cost. Love the Country ... Read more

Sirena is not the quality of other Oceania ships. Still good but not as good. The quality of the ship is not the same. A lot of broken things, the lights in Red Ginger would not dim correctly - bright or very dim, ice cream machine in ... Read more

This cruise was recommended to us by our travel agent. It was touted as a luxurious venue with superior services. We were disappointed with the ship overall. We met wonderful people onboard. The pool deck area is lovely as is the spa ... Read more

Selected for its ports of call and the fact it was selling itself as a luxury cruise line. Well the ports didn't let us down but not over impressed by the ship. What can we say but it's boring! Thankfully we had a port stop every day so ... Read more

We like small ships and river cruises so Oceania was a preference over larger ships to see these locations. Verandah stateroom was roomy enough although bathroom and shower were small (not a surprise if you follow Cruise Critic). MDR food ... Read more

This was our third Oceania cruise with trying a more mass market cruise line in between. The difference was startling, and we will stay with Oceania from now on. Our cruise was both stimulating and relaxing. We visited several ... Read more

This was a very average cruise and a real disappointment. WE have cruised many times before with Seabourn, Cunard and RCI, so were eagerly expecting an excellent cruise with Oceania. Not to be. Its a very nice ship and well kept. The ... Read more

Oceania's Marina has the best quality food of the 8 cruise lines we traveled on, but there are major problems in entertainment and excursion policies. We were booked in a Concierge cabin and dined 6 times in specialty restaurants. All ... Read more

It is important that everyone knows that the O'life promotion if you pick the free excursions they must be booked at least 14 days before sailing. Once on board you can not pick your excursions and will have to pay the full price of the ... Read more

W e chose this cruise because of the itinerary-particularly Latvia and Lithuania, which are two countries that my wife and i had never been to. It has also been 16 years since our previous Baltic cruise, so we were curious about potential ... Read more

We really enjoyed this Baltic cruise on the Nautica. We like the way we are treated by Oceania and we especially enjoy the food onboard. This cruise was port intensive with only one sea day, so we knew that there would be plenty of ... Read more

I chose this cruise in the Baltic region because there were places on this itinerary I had never visited before. I was particularly interested in transiting the Kiel canal. I flew into Stockholm on the day of the cruise so was unable to ... Read more

Our cruise on Sirena was chosen primarily for the itinerary, which followed the Atlantic coasts of Spain and France. We also wanted to revisit Oceania’s smaller ‘R-class’ ships after several cruises on the larger ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary however; the two ports I was looking forward to were skipped. The entertainment was awful for the most part. This tour was originally listed as a 21 day cruise but ultimately was changed into ... Read more

This was our 5th Oceania Cruise and 3rd on the Marina so we like it a lot. The staff are excellent, the rooms a generous size, the food is really excellent and we don't go for the entertainment. A nice set of ports, starting in Stockholm. ... Read more

This was our first cruise, so we don't have anything to compare with, but it was such a good experience we can't wait to go again. We don't drink much so didn't bother with a drinks package, and liked that other than alcohol everything ... Read more

This cruise was chosen for the ports of call in the Baltic and only having 1 sea day. This was my first time with Oceania and I had previously sailed with Azamara. The Marina is twice as big as Azamara but you didn't notice it had 1,200 ... Read more

The ship in general is looking tired and needing a refit. On deck 14, some of the windows were loose due to rust having eaten away most of the fasteners. Decks need some refinishing but the crew were diligent about trying to make it look ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we wanted to visit as many of the Baltic countries as possible and because we liked the variety of Excursions. We also chose it because Marina seemed a very gracious and well appointed ship. We chose it ... Read more

Disembarkation was easy at each port, even for those not taking Oceania tours. (Would not recommend using Oceania tours a la carte for St Pete, as each tour would return back to ship through all the traffic.) Heard of no virus ... Read more

I agree with another reviewer who pointed out how tired the cabins were. Our carpeting was frayed, there was rust along the door, furniture was scoffed and the pillows were lumpy. The PH cabins have a spacious, lovely walk in closet and ... Read more

This was my first cruise on a large ship. (My first cruise was on a brand new Junk in Ha Long Bay, so it is a different experience.) We arrived in Copenhagen a day early and explored the city one afternoon and the next morning, which was ... Read more
