Sirena is beautiful; a memorable cruise.
"The Sirena is a mid-sized ship so I was delighted not to see so many people in line during check in. It was smooth and easy. We were extremely disappointed when at check-in they told us that our stop in Egypt was..."Read More

We chose this itinerary, back to back cruises, from Athens to Venice, Venice to Barcelona since we wanted to do both the Eastern and Western Mediterranean. Even though we stopped twice in Dubrovnik & Kotor, it was well worth it to have the second day to explore on our own (after gaining familiarity w/ both cities). We are big Viking fans, both the river and ocean. Just did the Baltic w/ Viking ...

We chose this cruise because we wanted to visit Israel and the Greek Isles. We spent 3 days in Athens before the cruise and 2 after the cruise. We have been cruising since the early 80's. We chose this ship because we aren't comfortable with very large or very small ships. 1,250 passengers was just right for us. Embarkation and debarkation went very smooth. The ship is well laid out. The ...

We wanted to try a smaller ship than the mega liners and liked the itinerary. We had heard very positive things about Oceania Marina and it lived up to the hype. We found the ship beautiful - luxurious without being pretentious. We loved that we weren't hounded by ship's photographers, that espresso drinks were complimentary and that we were given water when disembarking every day. Common ...

I think we may have set the bar to high for our first cruise. Very attentive staff. Top notch dining. We met many other guests from around the world. I think the ship is a perfect size for mingling I would do it again it was very enjoyable. The decor was beautiful. The beds were very comfortable. If you want a vacation where you want for nothing this is most assuredly the way to go. There ...

We had a wonderful experience with both Oceania as well as our alumni travel group. We spent two days in Athens before boarding the ship which we highly encourage others to do who have long flights. It helps to reset your internal clock before you get on the ship. We also spent an extra two days in Rome after disembarkation. Both the pre and post tours organized by our alumni group were ...

This has been our fifth Oceania cruise. We booked this cruise together with some friends we met on the Riviera 1,5 year ago. Malta was great , so was Taormini and Sorrento. Food was great as always. Ship was fully booked , so there was more entertainment then we were used to. I had the idea that the beds in the cabin were not of the same quality as the first couple of times we cruised ...

We chose this ship and cruise because of the itinerary - great combination of three days in Israel plus Greek Islands. Also, we are foodies and had heard the food was great, and finally, we do not like a super large ship or one that caters to lots of kids. The food in the main dining room was truly awesome every day - wonderful presentation and unique recipes. Also loved Toscana and Jacques. Did ...

Small Ship, No children, photographers, or up-selling, Great Food Great Service and Staff Great cabaret-style entertainment Great Itinerary What's not to love? The cruise was Oceania quality all the way. Food, service, staff, programs all were as good as we expected and worth the money. Our original idea that a cruise was the best way to see this part of the world was ...

The itinerary on the cruise was excellent - a passage visiting Greece, Israel, Egypt, Jordan, Oman and Dubai. Cairo was cut from the itinerary one day after the final payment date, which was a disappointment and some passengers felt a devious move. A few passengers made alternate plans to visit Cairo by alternate means either during or after the cruise. The embarkation in Athens and ...

I had researched Oceania quite a lot before booking this cruise and it does what it says on the tin. The experience is based around service,destinations and especially food. All three exceeded our reasonably high expectations. We had only cruised once before, on the Royal Caribbean's Allure, a mega ship and although not impressed by the Caribbean,as a destination, we really enjoyed the cruise ...
