This cruise, which began in Copenhagen and visited Warnemunde, Germany (Berlin); Gdansk, Poland; Tallinn, Estonia; St. Petersburg, Russia; Helsinki, Finland; and Stockholm, Sweden, appealed to us for its itinerary. Our boarding process ... Read more

It all started on the wrong foot. On the morning of our starting flight, which had been arranged by Oceania, we found it was delayed. Panic set in about meeting our connecting flight and arriving at the embarkation dock on time. When we ... Read more

We are just so thrilled with Oceania that we booked TWO MORE cruises with them. I couldn’t imagine sailing any other line after this experience, and we’ve sailed most of the mass market and even some of the premium lines ... Read more

Although we are experienced independent travellers, this was only our second cruise (the first was the inaugural cruise of Oceania's Insignia about ten years ago). We were initially concerned that the size of Marina (1200 compared to 650 ... Read more

Oceania has the most comprehensive itinerary for the Baltic, so be prepared to be tired. Every day but one, you are in port. But that was why we chose the cruise. Who would think we would visit places like Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania ... Read more

Good points: * Boarding went smoothly except for malfunctioning credit card machine which required us to make extra trip to reception to resolve * Love the ability ship has to store half finished wine bottle for later use when dining * ... Read more

Our ten-day cruise through the Baltic Sea on the Marina was a delight. The mid-size Marina had many features that my wife and I found attractive. The size of the ship was small enough that it was possible to become acquainted with several ... Read more

Overall, the Marina is a lovely ship and we were very pleased with our experience. Let's start with the good stuff: Cabin--very attractive and comfortable veranda stateroom. Bathroom was a bit cramped, but the bed was heaven. ... Read more

I sailed on the Oceania Marina mid June with a group of 10 friends that I met through Cruise Critic over the years. I have already published a comparison of my "observations" on Oceania vs. Azamara, on the Oceania board. I have reset my ... Read more

This was our third Oceania cruise and the best yet. As a 10th Anniversary designated sailing, we had several complimentary special events on board that included gifts for passengers and even more food/drinks of all things. The staff is ... Read more

Hubby and I decided to do this at the last minute to celebrate my birthday. We had been looking at various cruise lines who included St. Petersburg in the itinerary for months, thinking of doing it next spring, when we found this trip on ... Read more

We're just home from 10-day Baltic cruise on Marina. As experienced and seriously independent travellers this was our first cruise other than a Rhine River trip. Here are my thoughts based on a lot of questions I see on this board: - ... Read more

My wife and I have been on four Oceania cruises on the smaller ships. My first impression of the Marina was that this is a large floating Vegas hotel. I learned to love the ship as the cruise progressed. The embarkation was efficient. ... Read more

Much hype, not so much substance. First the good - great cabin stewards and fantastic friendly staff - (not sure of officers - never saw them). The itinerary was great, although one port was aborted (Visby) because of rough water - ... Read more

Oceania's two new ships, Marina and Riviera are supposedly identical. They carry twice as many passengers as the older ones. The public space reflects the increase in passengers, the decks are spacious and well appointed, they have lost ... Read more

The July 3, 2012 London to London Viking Expeditions Cruise did not live up to our expectations. When we completed this cruise, we had sailed on Nautica for 85 days. Each time, Oceania seems to have lowered the bar. On the positive ... Read more

We arrived into Stockholm a day before as this long of travel from the States necessitates at least a day to unwind! EMBARKAtion: About 30 minutes; although we arrived at "peak" boarding time. Not bad for a 1000+ passenger ship. ... Read more

The Marina is truly a beautiful ship with a fantastic crew. The main downside of the trip was the bad weather which, of course, was no fault of Oceania. We had a Concierge Level A3 Cabin which was mid ship. Although we hit some rough ... Read more

We had wonderful cruise with this cruise liner. I did a lot of research and found that the majority of customers had enjoyed this cruise line. I have been very wary of taking a cruise, and this was our first. I was impressed that everyone ... Read more
