Just returned last night from a 12 night Mediterranean cruise on the Riviera. Overall the cruise was excellent. Ports of call were a great variety and a couple were hidden gems that I would never have considered visiting previously. ... Read more

Our first Oceania cruise and sadly our last. For the following reasons: The Nautica did have good food, some of the best we've had on a cruise ship. The service was OK but it was very slow at several of our meals in the main dining ... Read more

We booked this cruise nearly a year before as a 50th Birthday present! Booked through a U.K. based travel agent and all preparation went well. We have sailed mainly with R.C.I. and Princess before but wanted to see if the advertised ... Read more

We had a Penthouse Balcony Suite and the closet space and bathroom space were excellent. The Butler service was a nice perk, but we were somewhat disappointed that the laundry pressing was very limited to 3 garments each. We would also ... Read more

The Riviera cruise (Oceania) was very satisfying on a number of levels, because of what they call ‘enrichment experiences’. On a culinary level, there is a choice between speciality restaurants serving some exceptional food ... Read more

We have cruised many times with mid-size ships primarily on Celebrity, Royal Caribbean, Princess and wanted to see if we'd enjoy the "lite" luxury of Oceania. Pros: Small ship experience, no crowds. No art sales, photos & ... Read more

We are regular cruisers but not with Oceania, we usually cruise with Celebrity but thought we'd try a smaller ship for a change. We decided to treat ourselves to this cruise as we had been told that Oceania was superb, the service was ... Read more

Having had a very poor cruise earlier in the year on Azamara Journey, just out of refit, and with high expectations having become accustomed to excellent cruises with Seabourn and Windstar, we were a little apprehensive about trying ... Read more

We booked this cruise based on a recommendation from friends who had travelled the previous year. We successfully booked through our travel agent & then contacted Oceania Australia (OA) directly in regard to the La Reserve dinners ... Read more

This was my first cruise with Oceania (have cruised in the past on larger ships/other lines) and Mom's 9th cruise with Oceania (5th on the Nautica). Traveling with an experienced cruiser makes a difference! We flew into Athens a day ... Read more

Heard great things about Oceania. This cruise was the inaugural cruise on Sirena. We were extremely disappointed in this ship. The renovations they claim to make we're not always evident. From problems with rooms, service and ... Read more

We, too, were on the Sirena inaugural cruise. This was, obviously, a shake-down cruise and while most of the cosmetic changes had been made, a lot of work remained to be done. Still, our Penthouse Suite was fully furnished upon arrival, ... Read more

We chose this cruise of Polynesia solely because it was going to Easter Island - a port that few ships go to, and they are usually on a world cruise. We also were interested in going to the Pitcairn Islands, another port which is very ... Read more

Judging from the reviews and boards of Cruise Critic at least, It’s not been a good year so far for Oceania with all of the norovirus on RIVIERA and continued worry or real experiences that “things aren’t the same” ... Read more

We were booked on a 3 week cruise of the Tahitian Islands and missed our trip to Peru the year before and since this one ended in Lima, we thought it was the perfect opportunity to do both. Plus, it was less costly than Celebrity's cruise ... Read more

We chose Oceania because of the itinerary. We have never been to the South Pacific or Easter Island before. With only about 800 passengers aboard, embarkation was swift. We were early so we didn't have access to our cabin but there ... Read more

We chose this cruise primarily because the itinerary included Easter Island, but also because of Oceania's reputation for upscale cruising and wonderful food. What a disappointment this turned out to be! Although the food more than lived ... Read more

I have read some of the early reviews of the Papeete to Lima segment of the Marina Cruise. As usual, on certain points, I feel we were traveling on the ship in another dimension! It was wonderful cruise, with reality settling in from ... Read more

My husband and I really enjoyed the Marina because they take such good care of their passengers. I wish we would have arrived in Papeete a day earlier to see that city but didn't want to pay the extra Air Deviation fee. Embarkation in ... Read more
