We wanted to celebrate our 45th, and on googling Mediterranean cruises, Oceania came to the top with an excellent deal. The agent who responded to our query was friendly and knowledgeable, and she suggested the perfect stateroom. Upgrades ... Read more

The itinerary on the cruise was excellent - a passage visiting Greece, Israel, Egypt, Jordan, Oman and Dubai. Cairo was cut from the itinerary one day after the final payment date, which was a disappointment and some passengers felt a ... Read more

From the moment we embarked at the port, we felt very welcomed. All of the crew we encountered at the restaurants, bars, pool deck, housekeeping,and security were wonderful. They all bent over backwards to make sure we had a positive ... Read more

We'd been with Oceania just once before, when Marina was new to the company, and were far from impressed by the poor levels of service, so vowed to give the company a miss! As we had cancelled a cruise with another 6* line, we decided to ... Read more

Friends recommended oceania cruises because of the good food. The food was good, but compared to the other cruiselines where we booked balcony huts in Europe since 2010, this was by far the worst in size, also the bathroom was far too ... Read more

My first cruise and I doubt I could have chosen a better cruise line. Only disappointment was a change in the itinerary eliminating the Athens departure which was changed to Rome and the fact that the sun did not shine every day. My ... Read more
