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 cruise primarily because of the itinerary and it did not disappoint. We made all our own tour arrangements at each port so I can not comment on the ships tours. Our room was fantastic and the service bar none. We found all the amenities great. We especially liked the Terrace Cafe just because of its variety of selection and casual atmosphere. We did enjoy Toscanas food as well, ...

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 loved sailing on the Riviera from Athens on the Romance and Relics tour. The ship was spectacular, most especially the service and food. The crew was outstanding a almost every encounter with staff was pleasant. We got to saying hello and calling the staff by name after only a few days aboard. The food experience was the highlight of the ship, most notably Polo restaurant which rated a ...

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 ...

Wonderful 'Sacred Sanctuaries' Cruise on Oceania Riviera

We cruised on the Riviera from 19 April through 29 April for the Sacred Sanctuaries itinerary. We cruised on other lines in the past, but decided to try Oceania for the stop in Israel and the particular stateroom that we selected. We had a bit of a nightmare getting to Athens to get on the cruise, but that has nothing to do with Oceania. However, we made it! We found the embarkation ...
