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

This was a destination specific cruise. Lecturer Mike Boll was fabulous giving histories of the countries visited. All nationalities were onboard which was a great mix. Entertainment was average & the so called "pool deck ... 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

We travelled the pacific visiting Hawaiian & Polynesian Islands in January 2017. The communal areas of the ship are of excellent standard, most are very grand & opulent. We had a veranda cabin which was comfortable but very dark in ... 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

We have taken several cruises previously on Holland America but we wanted something a little more upscale to celebrate a milestone wedding anniversary so we decided to try Oceania. We are so glad we did. We loved Oceania and will be ... Read more

Embarkation easy. The first 3 days went well if you excluded the very poor entertainment. I found the cabin very dusty and the windows were filthy. Service is good in the specialty restaurants but spotty in the MDR and worse in the bar ... Read more
