We chose this cruise because we wanted to go in a less crowded ship. Before, we've sailed in larger ships of about 2500 passengers. We really enjoyed less people aboard, more tranquility. Athens is really a very interesting place to ... Read more

"The Finest Cuisine at Sea"? Well, there's the Aral Sea. The menu read, "Duck a la Orange." How Oceania could then offer up slender morsels of duck breast, with a side sauce, is a mystery; unless, perhaps, the chef ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the unique seven day point to point itinerary, from Barcelona to Rome. We are still working and like to spend some of our vacation time exploring on land, so we ended our trip exploring some areas in Italy ... Read more

Its an excellent value for the money compared to may upscale cruises. Everything first rate and staff could not do enough. Some of the excursions just okay but still fantastic. I'd rather they gave less excursions but better ones! The ... Read more

This is a cruise for more discerning foodies who want quality, service and luxury and don’t want to be herded along with thousands of other passengers on a monster ship. After reading other reviews below, two alarm bells rang in ... Read more

Overall great cruise. We went at the end of May and the weather was perfect -- hot during the day, sunny, and pleasant at night. Food is fantastic on the Sirena and there's a good choice of on-board restaurants and dining venues. ... Read more

We were somewhat sceptical taking this cruise, due to an unpleasant experience on another cruise line. Friends sailed with Oceania about two years ago and assured us we would enjoy it. Oceania did not disappoint. The food is great, and ... Read more

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

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

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

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
