It's easy to use adjectives describing the comfort of having everything done for you, the superlatives we all use after a week of pampering and eating way too much consistently delicious food. Having just returned home from a week on ... Read more

Our Oceania Cruise was the first cruise that either I or my wife have ever taken, but we hope it won't be the last. Nearly everyone on our cruise were old hands at cruising; a majority having taken a half dozen if not double-digit tours ... Read more

We chose the sailing because it was one of the few offerings going to Manaus on The Amazon River and because Oceania was offering major inducements as they were not full. We ended up with only about 489 passengers, which resulted in a high ... Read more

The cabin was incredible. Way more luxurious and roomier than the photos show. The media room was the hangout place for the wife and I, as they had every movie and TV show you could want on their DVR. This cabin is supposedly the third ... 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
