We chose this cruise because of the itinerary. I have been to Spain and Portugal but always wanted to visit Morocco. We booked late and couldn't get the cabin we wanted so only had a window rather than veranda; our travel agent convinced ... Read more

Disembarkation was easy at each port, even for those not taking Oceania tours. (Would not recommend using Oceania tours a la carte for St Pete, as each tour would return back to ship through all the traffic.) Heard of no virus ... Read more

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
