The port stops were somewhat boring--not a lot of infrastructure for visitors in Central America. However, the ship experience was outstanding. The food was truly amazing and the service was wonderful. This was our fifth cruise with ... Read more

The length, West Coast Departure and Xmas and New Year. The public areas of the ship were nicely appointed but the showroom is a flat level and one can not see the feet of the dancers from about a few rows back. One is obliged to view the ... Read more

Had sailed on Marina Spring 2015, this trip around South America just wasn't the same. We enjoyed ourselves immensely on our 2015 trip and chose the same ship and same cabin (Conciege Veranda) for this holiday journey. We arrived ... Read more

This is our 2nd time aboard the Marina. In 2015 we traveled the Baltics for 10 days. Because of that experience, Oceania was chosen again. What an amazing trip! Overall, service was exceptional. The Cruise Director, Peter, was upbeat ... Read more

We had a good-to-very-good cruise experience, but the itinerary was great so all in all it gets an excellent rating. This cruise was over the holidays, Buenos Aires to Valparaiso, Chile. The ship was full, but unlike some other holiday ... Read more

This was our first Oceania cruise- and we're glad we did! I have been hearing about how great Oceania was from friends for several years, but we have become quite partial to our familiar Celebrity. We've also cruised with Seabourne, and ... Read more

We chose the sailing because it was one of the few offerings going to Manaus on The Amazon River and because Oceania was offering major inducements as they were not full. We ended up with only about 489 passengers, which resulted in a high ... Read more

The ship was very nice, it was our first small ship experience. We had a Balcony Stateroom which was the same size as we had on other cruises. The Bathroom and the shower were too small and not very functional. You had to sit on ... Read more

We prefer slightly smaller ships but in the same or better class. This was our first exposure to Oceania and we were comparing this experience to Seabourn. The ship was very nice and the Penthouse Suite was just a bit larger than the ... Read more

We were a little suspect of Oceania since we had been inundated by marketing material since we booked our cruise - back in March. But we enjoyed it very much. The Regatta is the perfect sized ship - easy to get around, you didn't have to ... Read more

The cabin was incredible. Way more luxurious and roomier than the photos show. The media room was the hangout place for the wife and I, as they had every movie and TV show you could want on their DVR. This cabin is supposedly the third ... Read more
