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

Although this review may seem long I took quite a few notes since the ship itself had mixed reviews so I might give a good perspective on the cruise line, the ship, and the itinerary as well. Our cruise was the Pearls of the South Pacific ... Read more

Our flight to Papeete was on time and we landed in Papeete at 5:15am on the day we were to embark on the cruise. We did not sign up for the expensive transfers ($129pp) to the port and took a cab to the city center and had them drop us at ... Read more

WOW just returned, what a beautiful place. Oceania was a lovely ship. Air Tahiti was good but must complain the seats were very uncomfortable for a person with a bad back, they were on time and the luggage arrived. The cruise wanted a ... Read more

We're seasoned cruisers (33 total - going all the way back to Grace Lines "Santa Rosa" in 1957), and this marked our first time aboard Oceania. We sailed on Marina from Valparaiso on 17 Dec & disembarked in Tahiti on 4 Jan 2015. We'd ... Read more

This was our first time on the Marina and for us it was by far the best cruise ship we have been on. The cabins are roomy, clean and comfortable. The service is great and so is the food. Oceania does everything to make your cruise an ... Read more

We were attracted to Oceania on the Islands to Incas Cruise because of the ports visited and the claims of outstanding food. Most of our Ocean travel has been on Holland America, with one Royal Caribbean and one Azamara. Our report is a ... Read more

We had the great pleasure of sailing on Marina for her Islands and Incas trip for 17 days from Tahiti to Lima Peru. The itinerary was fantastic: Tahiti, Hurahine, Bora Bora (overnight), Fakarava, Adamstown - Pitcairn Islands, Hanga Roa ... Read more

After many cruises with RCI, Princess, and Celebrity, DH and I decided to try Oceania. French Polynesia was on our bucket list and this ship and itinerary were perfect. Oceania is definitely a step up from RCI and Princess, but we felt was ... Read more

We tried this ship based on recommendations of friends, and we are very pleased that we did. The 14 day cruise took in the highlights of French Polynesia as well as a stop in The Cook Islands. Most of the ports required tenders into the ... Read more

Why again?  This was our third cruise to French Polynesia, the first two being on Tahitian Princess in 2008 and Royal Princess in 2010. Simply put; we love these islands, their laid back atmosphere, the beautiful lagoon waters, the ... Read more

Our first cruise with Oceania, and we were curious if it would live up to its reputation. It definitely did - and we'll cruise Oceania again. Flight We had a 7 and a 6 hour layover at LAX, which was less than ideal. However, once we were ... Read more

If reading the other reviews of this cruise, they are either great or would not recommend this cruise. We had a 5 star experience but even on board, I could see that it was a no, 1, or 2 star experience for others. Read CC and other ... Read more

So Oceania's Marina is beautiful and the crew and staff are the best., but that doesn't make up for the negatives. They advertise free air fare. Which is a chartered flight out if LAX on Tahiti Air. This flight is miserable. The plane is ... Read more

Embarkation: I'll put it simply: The process was a mess. Part due to Oceania's confusing and changing times for embarkation plus a lack of clarity for people with independent travel, and part due to the Port of Papeete. Once we finally got ... Read more

The Marina is a beautiful ship with large open areas. Even when the ship is completely full, as it was for us, you do not feel crowded anywhere. On the top of the ship is a running track and below it and above the pool another walking ... Read more
