I’m used to have always gone on sea goddess back in its day and crystal, so unfortunately my standards are really high. This cruise ship made me hate cruising forever. I don’t understand the hype. Old cruise ship trying to squeeze out every penny from you by investing the minimum. The food is awful at the main dining room. My sons school cafeteria lunches are superior. The specialty ...

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 ...

Loved the itinerary - many locations we had not visited. However a horrible cruise overall. Booked our flight through Oceania as part of the cruise package and arrived at the airport to find out that our flight was cancelled the day before. No notice received from airline(Austrian Air) or Oceania - frustrating way to start a vacation. Thank goodness we arived early at the airport and was able to ...

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 restaurants offered a good variety of dishes. The Italian and French restaurants were the better of the 4. As New Yorkers, we have no shortage of good steakhouses or Asian restaurants so ...

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 are somewhat experience cruisers. A total of 11. We have cruised Norwegian, Rcl, Princess, and Celebrity. Are experience on this cruise was the food was very in the specialty restaurants and the same as our current favorite Princess in the main dining. The entertainment was average. The ship other then our cabin was a little tired and could use a clean up. Ship could not compare to ...

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 with assumed that I should know how to board they ship. Overall the experience was great. The crew onboard takes good care of you and the cabins are most comfortable. Even better ...

Wanted to do a cruise going to Italy. Fabulous food, ship and crew. They couldn't have been more helpful and courteous. So easy boarding, Nice cabin, only thing is they should have made the tub a walk in shower. Shower VERY small. How many people sit in a tub on a cruise? Entertainment could have been better. Liked the fact that some of the bars had happy hours, and bartenders where quite ...

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 slow virtually throughout the cruise--there are simply too many passengers for the amount of satellite the ship uses. And, although staff such as servers and maintenance were very ...

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 ...
