This was our first Oceania cruise. We have been On about 80 cruises so can make a comparison. We went because we wanted the "culinary" experience. We were mostly pleased. On the buffet one could find, on different nights, crab ... Read more

We booked this cruise nearly a year before as a 50th Birthday present! Booked through a U.K. based travel agent and all preparation went well. We have sailed mainly with R.C.I. and Princess before but wanted to see if the advertised ... Read more

This was our first cruise on Oceania since it was purchased by Norwegian Cruise Line. We wondered if the service and food might decline. Their was no need for concern as the food is still the best at sea, service was excellent and the ... Read more

This is my sixth cruise, all on Oceania. We chose a transatlantic cruise because we wanted a relaxing two weeks without guilt...we could lie in the sun and read, or participate in shipboard activities without fear of missing something in ... Read more

I had always wanted to try a TA cruise and this was a perfect opportunity. It turned out even better than my expectations. The greatest aspect was the leisurely pace, not having to get up early in the morning for a shore excursion, ... Read more

The Riviera was highly recommended to us. It was our 2nd cruise with Oceania (Insignia, before), and I should have known better. My husband and I go cruising to relax, have nice meals with good service, and then dance the night ways! ... Read more

This was a segment of the 180 round the world cruise. I booked because I was interested in the destination - Cape Town - and the ports of call along the west African coast. There was little to complain about on the ship, as I didn't ... Read more

I agree for the most part with Old Jazzer's review. This was my first cruise on Oceania. The cabin service was first rate. The social hostess Tammy was very good. The itinerary is why I took the cruise and it was more than I could have ... Read more

We started the cruise with a ATL-JNB flight aboard Delta. We stayed at the Oceania suggested hotel of 54 on Bath in JNB for two nights. The hotel is excellent. As part of our cruise we booked Oceania's pre-cruise tour to the Chobe Game ... Read more

My husband and I have sailed many times with Windstar, Seabourn, Azamara, Cunard, Celebrity, and Holland America. This was the worst cruise we have ever experienced. From the moment of embarkation, seemingly simple requests were met with ... Read more

This was our 17th cruise - 4th on Oceania. The food was very good for the most part and in perfect portions for multiple-course meals (with the exception of perhaps one overzealous cook who seemed to greatly overcook the fish fillets ... Read more

Very disappointed in this cruise. The ship is wonderful, the crew was very effective - if not the best I have ever seen, but I was very disappointed in being turned away from Bemuda due to a "norovirus" outbreak. No ... Read more

First, we have been on ten O cruises (over 30 total) so there are grounds for a fair comparison and constructive criticism. The cruise as a whole was disappointing and in many respects discouraging. As long-time fans of Oceania, we ... Read more

Having cruised many lines previously but not Oceania, we eagerly looked forward to our first, which was the transatlantic cruise from Barcelona to Miami. While it was probably the worst cruise I've ever been on, I will endeavor to state ... Read more

While we are not serial cruisers, we have enjoyed cruises on Regent and Celebrity. We chose this cruise because of the itinerary and the fact that Oceania is advertised as a "premium-luxury" cruise line. While there were no ... Read more

We sailed on the Insignia for a 23 day cruise from Montreal to Southampton. Although the ship was said to be recently refurbished, much of it still needed to be updated. The TV in our stateroom was small and the picture was awful. The ... Read more
