We enjoy the sea days on repositioning cruises, and this 14-day Oceania Riviera voyage from Barcelona to Miami gave us five in a row, from Madeira to Bermuda. The meals were excellent, and the service exceptional. The penthouse suite ... Read more

We'd been with Oceania just once before, when Marina was new to the company, and were far from impressed by the poor levels of service, so vowed to give the company a miss! As we had cancelled a cruise with another 6* line, we decided to ... Read more

Friends recommended oceania cruises because of the good food. The food was good, but compared to the other cruiselines where we booked balcony huts in Europe since 2010, this was by far the worst in size, also the bathroom was far too ... Read more

We have sailed Oceania 6 times and this time we were disappointed, not in the amenities or service which was outstanding. We chose a transatlantic crossing thinking there would be movies, lectures on varied topics beside the usual games ... Read more

We had a wonderful cruise on the Oceania Marina. Embarkation was fast and probably the easiest we have ever had. Once on board, all the crew were so very friendly. Not a single crew member failed to say hello or good morning or some ... Read more

Had another strong experience with Oceania on the Marina. We didn't notice much difference between the Riviera and the Marina, given they are only one year different. The restaurants were excellent, the staff very service-oriented. ... Read more

If you love the Nautica, Insignia or Regatta you will love the Sirena - it is the same ship (almost). I have done over 35 cruises and 10 on Oceania. I sailed on the Sirena when it was the R4 and when it was the Pacific Princess. I love ... Read more
