The food was great. Favorite restaurants were Toscana and Jacques. A little disappointed in Polo. The dinner buffet was excellent as were the breakfast and lunch buffets. Service was impeccable throughout the ship. Entertainment ... Read more

My wife and I choose this cruise as we both wanted to visit French Polynesia. We did explore other Cruise Lines but based on the itinerary we choose Oceana Cruise Lines. We had never sailed on Oceana before and were not sure what to expect ... Read more

We were a group of 9 family and friends traveling together. My DH and I had been to French Polynesia before but the others had not. We chose this itinerary because we're avid snorkelers and family members like to get out of Wyoming ... Read more

This was a spur of the moment decision made 3-months before embarkation. A deeply discounted price and exotic destinations on the Amazon River got us to book. We were not even considering a 2017 cruise. My wife and I have been on 16 ... Read more

We normally cruise Celebrity, and sometimes Princess, but decided to celebrate my wife's retirement by upgrading to a higher end line. We were not disappointed. Although overall service was excellent and the stateroom was beautiful, it ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the itinerary and the time of year. Also it was our first time with Oceania. Our cabin was an oversized Balcony Stateroom. Our balcony was twice the size of the others. Our stateroom was beautiful and the bed and ... Read more

We are mostly Silversea cruisers. Silversea was sold out so we tried Oceania. The ship is beautiful. Modern but not gaudy. Our cabin (penthouse) was very nice with a walkin closet. Similar to Silversea but more modern. Our butler was ... Read more

This was our first time cruising with Oceania. We had cruised with all the top rated cruise lines like Crystal, Silver Sea and Regent. We have high expectations and were looking for something with exceptional esthetics as well as good ... Read more

After a wonderful Baltic cruise on Marina last summer we decided to take a Western Caribbean cruise. The cruise did not start auspiciously as boarding was delayed several hours due to a Coast Guard full ship inspection. Additionally, ... Read more

Our 7th cruise with Oceania, first on Marina, so we really like the offer. First cruise since the Norwegian take over. Enjoyable cruise overall, although very late embarkation and hygiene 'lockdown' for the first couple of days, coupled ... Read more

We had always wanted to experience the Panama Canal, and had been very satisfied with our previous cruise on the Oceania Marina. The Regatta is the smallest ship we've ever cruised, and we had an Aft Cabin (8069), so we were a little ... Read more

We have cruised on Oceania before to the Mediterranean so was familiar with the Cruise line. Ships are very comfortable and accommodations are high end. The ports of call were delightful and the ship provided a good selection of shore ... Read more

We chose Oceania because of the itinerary and the reviews I had read. From all reports, it is for "foodies". With that, I set my expectations pretty high and unfortunately I was disappointed. I have cruised on several lines ... Read more

I had never spent this kind of money for a cruise before and was expecting that the cruise would match the dollars I had spent. It came no where near what I had paid. The cost worked out to $436 Canadian ($333 US) each a day for the ... Read more

We chose this cruise purely for the itinerary, which is different from most of the cruises in this area. Firstly, before booking, we had consulted the reviews, and knew roughly what to expect. I get fed up with listening to some of ... Read more

Wanted to go through Panama Canal and wanted a longer cruise. We've been working up in the length of time as we move toward retirement. Heard good things about Ocean and it fit the other criteria so we booked. Food is their claim to ... Read more

We chose this itinerary and line because of our prior experience and because of the Panama Canal crossing and an opportunity to see the Mayan Ruins in Mexico. The ship itself is beautiful and very well maintained, but as a overall ... Read more

We left LA on January 4th. I was somewhat concerned about the Sirena as many reviews were not very positive in one way or another. The ship was beautifully appointed, as was our Penthouse room. Granted smaller than the PH3 on the ... Read more

This was our 4th sailing with Oceania and our second sailing on Riviera (we have also sailed on her sister ship, Marina). This is the first sailing we have taken with Oceania that was not "port intensive". We had 5 stops in the ... Read more
