This was our first cruise on Oceania, the 12 day ‘Pure Polynesia’ on Sirena. We tend to be land based travellers, but some places are just better by ship. Sirena is a smaller ship, which we prefer. The ship, refurbished in ... Read more

The itinerary was the main reason for selecting this cruise. Also the boat is identical to an Azamara cruise we went on in the past which we absolutely loved. Plus Oceania was rated 1/2 star more "luxurious" than Azamara. I ... Read more

We initially were made aware of this cruise by Go Next which was actively promoting this cruise last year, however we ended up booking it through our own travel agent for a slightly better deal. As others have mentioned, French ... 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 wanted to give Oceania another chance and so glad we did. Our first cruise with them was to Alaska last year...not their fault, but the weather was horrid. So that made the cruise not so fun! BUT this time our weather to the ... 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

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

We wanted to try Oceania instead of our usual Princess or HAL. My review is very mixed because some things were better and others were not. For example, embarkation was great, we walked right on and there were some little kiosks with ... 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
