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

This was our second Oceania cruise (last year: Scandinavia and the Baltics on the Marina) and we just booked another cruise in 2016! The fine quality of the Oceania line has been maintained despite it's sale to Norwegian Cruise Line. The ... Read more

Regatta through Panama Canal Apr 23, 2015. Ship — moderate size (650+) but both the main dining room and the entertainment room could not accommodate a full shipload of passengers. On one or two nights the line was very long at ... Read more

I purposely waited 5 days to write this review because I felt I could write a better review after I rested up from the long trip back. Unfortunately, that has not happened, so here goes! First, the ship is beautiful, the crew was great ... Read more

Embarkation in Cape Town seamless and we were soon on board. Nautica was in port for one night before sailing which gave us time to stock up on liquor at Pick n Pay at the V & A Waterfront. Nautica has the big plus of allowing liquor ... Read more

We've sailed with several other cruise lines, but this was our first time with Oceania, and we came away very pleased with almost everything involved. The information we received pre-cruise was very good and timely, and being able to make ... Read more

We have been the guests of Oceania for 5 cruises. We have always been impressed by their attention to detail and overall quality. Not so with this most recent cruise. It started with having incorrect information on where to board the ship, ... Read more

First time on Oceania, but will be the last because they did not live up to "consistently delivering excellent service and value", as they state. The Marina ship was very nice and the service on board was fine. We found the ... Read more

Amazon Odyssey This was our fifth Oceania cruise, third on Regatta. The average age of the passengers on this cruise appeared to be a little older than the Oceania norm; this might have been because it was a fairly long one. Things ... Read more

Ship  Like all Oceania ships the Marina offers superb quality. A bit more expensive then e.g. NCL, but worth every penny. The attitude of personnel is so friendly that you immediately feel at home. Especially the food is above ... Read more

Just finished a sweet Riviera cruise through the Med. Doesn't hurt that we had temps in the 70's-80's and calm seas. We previously cruised Oceania Nautica and wanted to try the newer/larger Riviera. Were not disappointed. Ship was elegant, ... Read more

The cruise was generally satisfactory. The food, with some exceptions (such as the Polo Grill steak house) was quite good. The staff throughout the ship was helpful and pleasant, and it does a good job in necessary tasks such as ... Read more
