My husband and I really enjoyed the Marina because they take such good care of their passengers. I wish we would have arrived in Papeete a day earlier to see that city but didn't want to pay the extra Air Deviation fee. Embarkation in ... Read more

My wife found the cruise from a brochure for Oceania and talked 6 of us into going. Our first time aboard any Oceania vessel. We were very pleased! No NORO, after a discussion on cruise critic roll call of this cruise and some ... Read more

We were very disappointed in the Concierge veranda room on the Nautica. After a prior cruise on the Marina, we expected a quality experience. It was a very small room, little closet space, a very small bathroom ( difficult to use) and the ... Read more

We selected this cruise for our 15th cruise on Oceania, looking forward to receiving our Oceania Club Gold status. In addition, this cruise would take us to a couple of new ports and back to others we had not revisited. To alleviate the ... Read more

The service on this ship was outstanding! Staff were very friendly and very helpful. However the general operation of the ship seemed to be sadly lacking. We rarely saw or heard from the captain other than to give us our compass bearing. ... Read more

We were quite disappointed with this cruise, as we have cruised Oceania a few times in the past and have always loved our stay on board. We joined the ship in Buenos Aires and sailed to Rio de Janeiro . To be fair, the ship had an ... Read more

Now we just got home. And we also were on the first sailing after a complete scrub down since a noro virus out break. 177 cases to CDC. Notified prior by Oceania that our boarding would be at 2 pm instead of 1pm due to the scrub down. Now ... Read more

Before we left for our trip, we were notified at the last minute of a port change from Tianjin to Incheon, Korea. Thankfully, this did not affect our plans as we weren't flying home until Sunday, March 6th. After staying in Bangkok for a ... Read more

We are in our mid 60's and have sailed 7 times in last 7 years. After 2 cruises on Celebrity Millenium ships we decided to go upscale and try Oceania Marina in 2011. One month prior to sailing, we were offered and accepted a bargain ... Read more

What a great ship this is! I feel sad to read that some people blame the cruise line for the virus that spread though some passengers. I watched people refuse to use hand sanitizer before entering food venues, being incredibly rude about ... Read more

We sailed on the Oceania Marina on a cruise of the Tahitian islands. We started and ended in Papeete on Tahiti and visited Moorea, Raiatea, Bora Bora, Nuku Hiva, and Rangiora. Although I thought of Tahiti as a single island in the middle ... Read more

This is the first cruise I've been on in which it improved with each day. At first, I had misgivings & couldn't see any differences, but the overall service and attention to detail soon became apparent. The ship is beautifully ... Read more

We booked the Concierge Level upgrade for the Mayan Mistique cruise. First the pluses: - Lovely ship, elegant, well appointed mid-sized, never felt crowded, spacious verandah cabin and bathroom, lots of little 'extras' in the cabin ... Read more

After reading some of the reviews on Cruise Critic we were a bit apprehensive about whether the high standards of our two previous Nautica cruises would be maintained, since the NCL acquisition. We need not have worried! The ship was ... Read more

First time on Oceania but about 25 cruises under our belt ranging from Azamara, Celebrity, Princess, etc. We had really looked forward to this cruise based on the itinerary (Tahiti) and the Oceania's reputation for excellent food. ... Read more

I hadn't cruised in years, until serendipitously, I met another person interested in sharing a stateroom on the Insignia's 180 day Around the World Cruise 2016. When people ask me about the cruise I always reply, "There are not ... Read more

This is a very personal view of the cruise based on our previous experiences. This cruise ship is very smart. Very well looked after and spotless clean. Posh. Upper class. Pretentious. It seemed to me that it was trying very hard to be ... Read more

The fun of this one month cruise was destroyed by the fact that the ship missed 4 ports of the 19 included in the itinerary, including Maldives, due to the declaration of the State of Emergency in the eve of our arrival (but without any ... Read more

Don't do this in the summer. We were hit with temperatures in the upper 90s and higher, with humidity around 100-percent much of the time. Other than that, and the chairs scraping noise from the grill above our stateroom (see cabin ... Read more

Our cruise began inauspiciously with the Oceania staff at the airport having no record of our booking the cruise. But after being shown the confirmation, the response was impressive. We were guided by two employees -- one in charge of our ... Read more

1. Ship size - just right. Considered the small end of a mid-size ship. Very clean. 2. Crew to passenger ratio - not 1 t 1 but close. 3. Crew/steward/waiter service - absolutely marvelous. Alway a smile and greeting from someone ... Read more

I have read some of the reviews, and wonder how anyone could give Oceania and their Marina ship anything but 5 stars. True, we have not been on 40 or 50 cruises like others, but have been on enough cruises to know the differences between ... Read more
