My partner and I are frequent cruisers - 6 in 12 months including Regent (1), Celebrity (2), Viking River (2) and Oceania (1 and done!) We specifically chose the Barcelona to Miami transatlantic crossing for its more numerous stops (6) and especially those in Canary Islands. The second night on board, we were informed by captain that due to weather system they had been monitoring for days ...

This was our 7th cruise with Oceania. They are still an excellent cruise line but we feel that the service and overall cruise experience is not as good as we have previously experienced. It was very nice to be remembered by so many of the crew when we were on board. The general manager - Dominic has been on other cruises that we've been on and he remembered us. We found the food in the ...

A Mostly Gourmet Cruise

We chose Oceania because of their heavily advertised claim that they offered some of the best food on the high seas. We chose the Riviera because the itinerary promised a trans-Atlantic crossing out of Barcelona where we wished to spend some extra days. And the price was right for a veranda cabin. The cruise didn't wholly live up to our hopes. But it was nonetheless an enjoyable ...

We chose this ship and company mainly on the positive reviews , recommendations, and transatlantic crossing itinerary which included stops in the Canary Islands which we had not visited before, and additional sea days which many cruises don't offer. Sadly, the Canary Island stops were cancelled due to a large Atlantic storm which had positioned itself over the area during our ...

We chose this cruise because we haven’t been to the Canary Is., and were looking forward to visiting. As explained earlier, we still haven’t visited them.. The Captain Did the right thing by avoiding the 70ft waves that hit Tenerife. The Company did the wrong thing by not crediting our accounts or offering some compensation for the missed ports and fuel savings. it was also wrong to not totally ...

Would I do a Transatlantic Again?

Main reason for this cruise was two fold. First was to do a Transatlantic and Second was to see the Canary Islands. My wife and I agreed that if we did not do the 3 days in Barcelona before the cruise it would have been a great disappointment. Not going to Canary Islands seem to be a fairly constant, if so why not go farther south to another island or a port on the west coast of Africa. ...

This was our first cruise on Oceana and loved the ship and days on the Atlantic Ocean. Our veranda room was comfortable. The balcony was just large enough for two chairs but perfect place to be mesmerized by the waves and skies of the Atlantic Ocean. The art aboard the ship was amazing the art classes fun and the culinary classes most informative (they filled up quickly so book as soon as you ...

We enjoy the sea days on repositioning cruises, and this 14-day Oceania Riviera voyage from Barcelona to Miami gave us five in a row, from Madeira to Bermuda. The meals were excellent, and the service exceptional. The penthouse suite cabin was very roomy with a comfortable bed and lots of storage space, including a walk-in closet. The cruise director, Nolan Dean was among the best (great sense ...

We have looked at Oceania cruises and always thought they were a bit too expensive for us. We were sent details of a repositioning cruise from the Med to Miami at a great price with several freebies thrown in.... free wifi, free transfers, $1000 on board credit and a drink package so we gave in to temptation. Having completed the cruise on Riviera we are now spoiled for cruising with any other ...

We just returned from our 21 cruise with oceania and have never been disappointed. The food is outstanding and the service is splendid. From juice coffee and great omelet in the morning to a wonderful lunch in the afternoon, the nightly meal is out of this world ! You can enjoy grilled shrimp and lobster tails every evening at the terrace grill, which also has many other choices from salads to a ...
