Did the Gondolas to Gaudi cruise. We are a couple in our early fifties and this was our second cruise having cruised in the Baltic with Celebrity two years ago. We loved our previous cruise on the Celebrity Eclipse but the Riviera was ... Read more

We chose this cruise primarily because of its itinerary (Lisbon, Porto, Gijon, Bilbao, Bordeaux, Biarritz, St.Malo, Le Havre. First time with the Oceania cruises. The room was small and obviously not completely refurbished, as promised. ... Read more

This was our second cruise on Oceania. We received a lot of press on the new Sirena. We booked a Penthouse SG2 with no specific stateroom. This was a first for us not having a Stateroom; one of their promotions. We were going to be in ... 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

We have been on only two ocean cruise (but 5 river cruises) and both on the Regatta. I imagine there are better ships out there (i.e. Regent level) that could be worth all 5 stars but for our tastes, the Regatta is just fine and would ... 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

We have cruised on the larger Oceania ships before and were so pleased. We've done most of Europe already but this was a special cruise that featured the wine regions of Portugal, Spain and France. We cruised on Oceania Sirena. The ... Read more

Sailed July 2016
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

We loved everything about this cruise except for the wifi. So let me get that out of the way first. Oceania, you MUST upgrade the wifi. Really a shame that you are charging for this, and it doesn't work about half the time. A real rip ... Read more

The Sirena was the new addition to the fleet and having sailed on all the others we thought we would like to be on it's inaugural voyage. We took the section from Barcelona to Le Havre, 21 days. The SIrena is another of the old ... 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

This was my first cruise ever, and the first for my mother since she took the Queen Mary in the early 60's. I traveled with my mom (69), sister (29), aunt and uncle both early 70's. My sister and I were definitely in the minority on the ... Read more

Close friends cruise with Oceania on this ship every year, sometimes twice a year, so our maiden voyage on the Riviera came with high expectations. Overall we weren't disappointed. We occupied a PHI penthouse suite on deck 11. The ... Read more

We chose this Alaska cruise on the Regatta for a few reasons - generally good reviews and reputation of the cruise line, the itinerary, and the excellent deal we got from our travel agent. We absolutely loved it! Only our 2nd cruise and ... Read more

Excellent everything except cabin, Bathroom so small could barely enter and shower was a joke. 95% of passengers couldn't fit because of age or their size. Common areas were cozy, beautiful and inviting. Food in any venue was gourmet. ... Read more

This cruise was a anniversary gift to ourselves as we both have wanted to go on an Alaskan cruise. We work with a travel agent who guided us to Oceania, when she understood our desires for something small and somewhat casual yet luxurious. ... Read more

Chose this cruise after reading al the hype about Sirena and the refit. Having cruised on similar ships we knew what to expect regarding size, layout, cabins etc. Although the carpets, linen, furnishings, deck chairs etc. all appeared new ... Read more

We are seasoned cruisers having been on many lines including Azamara, HAL but mainly Celebrity. We wanted to try Oceania and this cruise seemed as good a place as any to start. On embarkation, which was a breeze, we realised that the ship ... Read more
