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

Being experienced cruise guests, we were very disappointed by our first Oceania cruise. The atmosphere on board was boring, we felt being treated like bank accounts, which are debited by every staff contact. Worst was our experience ... Read more

Well, where do I begin? Oceania Cruise Line far surpasses any cruise line I have sailed. I've sailed 8 different cruise lines and many numerous times. I would consider myself to be fairly seasoned as far as cruising goes. With that being ... Read more
