Oceania can do better than this

We selected it for the price and destinations. The ports were great, and shore excursions were fine. However, the food, while still very good, was not excellent as it used to be. Internet service was horribly ...

The food was mediocre on this cruise. The food we ate ashore and on our plane to and from was better, and I am not exaggerating. I almost laughed out loud when told the bread was made onboard. It is not and it is ...
