We chose this cruise because the Amazon river was on our bucket list and because of the cuisine aboard Oceania. We were a little bit hesitant because of initial reviews of Sirena suggested that the refit from Princess left something to ... Read more

This was our second Oceania cruise. We had really enjoyed the Regatta when we sailed on a 7-night Alaska cruise (RT out of Seattle) in July of 2014, liked the itinerary (Montreal to Miami), and even booked the same stern cabin (7121). We ... 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

This cruise reminded us of Azamara with whom we have often sailed. Boarding and disembarkation was smooth, efficient and fast. We had a very comfortable windowed cabin with plenty of storage. The shower and bathroom were small but ... Read more

We have been on over fifty cruises, and oceania has by far the best food. In the Terrace Cafe grilled lobster, jumbo shrimp, and lamb chops are served nightly. Dining is even available outdoors on the stern of the ship. Some other ... Read more

Selected for its ports of call and the fact it was selling itself as a luxury cruise line. Well the ports didn't let us down but not over impressed by the ship. What can we say but it's boring! Thankfully we had a port stop every day so ... Read more

As virgin ocean cruisers, but experienced river cruisers, we were not sure what to expect. We chose this particular cruise mainly because of the reputation of Oceania, the cruise had only one sea day, a relatively small number of ... Read more

We choose Oceania on the recommendation of some friends who had taken their cruise in Alaska. In looking at the itinerary I saw that on Nautica's August 28, 2016 itinerary, there were some ports we had not been to so that is why I choose ... Read more

It is important that everyone knows that the O'life promotion if you pick the free excursions they must be booked at least 14 days before sailing. Once on board you can not pick your excursions and will have to pay the full price of the ... Read more

We have been on only two ocean cruise (but 5 river cruises) and both on the Regatta. I imagine there are better ships out there (i.e. Regent level) that could be worth all 5 stars but for our tastes, the Regatta is just fine and would ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we wanted to visit as many of the Baltic countries as possible and because we liked the variety of Excursions. We also chose it because Marina seemed a very gracious and well appointed ship. We chose it ... Read more

The destinations of Iceland and Greenland were new to us and were as hoped for. We had sailed with Oceania before on Insignia and thoroughly enjoyed it with good shows and lectures. This one was different as the shows were poor ... Read more
