This was our 4th Oceana cruise. Others were all on smaller ships which we prefer although this one was not overcrowded with the exception of the excursions.. Our biggest complaint is the extras. For the most part , they were all grossly ... Read more

Just a bit of background.... We have cruised with NCL once, around a dozen times with Thomson and this is our third time on Oceana. This is more of a comparison between P&O and Thomson than a review. We are a middle aged couple ... Read more

We had 13 nights which was certainly enough. Our only other cruise was with Cunard and the difference is startling. The pressure to buy drinks, especially by the pool, was at times insolent. The food was standard British fare, plenty of ... Read more

This cruise line is touted as an upscale cruiseline. We have been on Sea Dream so we know what that means. I would place this cruise one level above Carnival. The food was very mediocre. Had to send it back the first night in the dining ... Read more

Oceana at 10 years old is a well founded and maintained ship, cabins are beautifully appointed and our steward Pankaj was telepathic, always on hand when we needed him, worked hard and always smiling. We were waited on hand and foot ... Read more

My husband and I have only sailed on small "boutique" boats prior to this trip. By comparison the Oceania's 700 or so passengers was large. Friends who cruise often had told us about this cruise line and praised it so off we went. We were ... Read more
