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

This cruise was an extension offer from Oceania. We added it to a Miami to Athens booking and received credits on airfare not needed for a back-to-back cruise. This also gave us an opportunity to do a day tour in Greece during the ... Read more

Inaugural cruise of Sirena and we sailed on Marina last year. The service on arrival was excellent although it was obvious much needed to be finished, they were still painting sections when we left 14 dats later. Our bed head arrived after ... Read more

I was interested in the ports especially Istanbul and was very disappointed when they changed Istanbul as the final destination to Athens. It was for security reasons so really can't blame Oceania. The cruise was real good but decided ... 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

This was our second cruise on Oceania, sixteenth in total. We loved the ship. The Riviera is beautiful, almost new, and rides like a dream. We took advantage of a summer promotion to book a penthouse suite at a veranda minisuite price. ... Read more

This was our first cruise on Oceania and it will be the last. This was our 37th cruise. We chose Oceania as it was my birthday, and my sister's 45 wedding anniversary. 1 - Embarkation in Venice was excellent. 2 - Cabin was excellent ... Read more

This was our third sailing with Oceania and our second on the Riviera. They hit the sweet spot for us being upscale but not pretentious. This time we had cabin 10064 which is a concierge level veranda stateroom. While we enjoyed the ... Read more

Pre-Cruise This cruise began in the south of France, where we’ve visited often. Rather than fly directly to Nice, we decided to spend several days in Paris prior to beginning the cruise. We used Oceania’s Air Deviation ... Read more

We have done many cruises but this was our first experience on Oceania. We had heard good things about the cruise line and the ship so were really looking to it even though we had been to most of the ports of call before. It was a real ... Read more

Advice - do not have a suite on deck 11, ours, 11031, was under the smoking area and lounger area and at night there was constant noise from the late night smokers and deck hands moving the loungers. Deck 11 suites also have a big overhang ... Read more

How I would describe the whole ship is "understated elegance" including the public areas and cabins. It is a very beautiful and relaxing surrounding. Our regular concierge (A2) cabin was a generous size with appealing ... Read more

We joined the ship in Istanbul. Embarkation was quick and smooth. Don't expect any kind of welcome in board; no senior staff or welcome drink. The ship is beautiful and the service and house staff really do a great job. Senior staff ... Read more
