Overall a great ship

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary and the amenities. The passenger age definitely skews to the over 60 crowd. The food was among the best we have ever had on a cruise ship. The specialty ...

1st cruise and enjoyable!

Oceania lives up to its reputation for being one of the best. As a new cruise ship passenger, I would suggest more instruction on the initial embarkation. I am new to cruising and some of the people I interacted ...

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 ...

We are unsure why Oceania is called the "food cruise line."

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 ...

Wonderful cruise, but for a luxury line it leaves things a bit lacking

On the whole, the cruise was very very good and the itinerary (which I credit Oceania with putting together) was excellent. However, for a line and ship that bill themselves as a luxury line, I just don't think they ...
