We chose this cruise purely for the itinerary, which is different from most of the cruises in this area. Firstly, before booking, we had consulted the reviews, and knew roughly what to expect. I get fed up with listening to some of ... Read more

The itinerary was a main reason for taking this cruise. The staff and food are exceptional. My only complaint is the size and layout of the cabins. We are in a concierge cabin and it's too small. The bathroom is just okay with a ... 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

We enjoy the sea days on repositioning cruises, and this 14-day Oceania Riviera voyage from Barcelona to Miami gave us five in a row, from Madeira to Bermuda. The meals were excellent, and the service exceptional. The penthouse suite ... Read more

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

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
