We chose this cruise because of the itinerary and the standard of care afforded by Oceania. We really enjoyed this cruise. The passengers were younger than anticipated; we met many interesting people. All the staff were exceptional: professional, polite, competent. The food and food venue choices were varied and many. I do feel the desserts were not up to what we experienced on the Marina about 20 months ago. The entertainment was more than I expected. Anyone that can get an entire large group of people up and dancing in their seats is admirable. I admire Cory, the cruise director, for his efforts, professionalism and sense of humor. We missed a few ports due to weather. Unfortunate, but the Captain kept us safe and there is a lot to be said for days at sea. Apparently, some people were quarantined but you would never know it. So much care to prevent germs and eliminate the risk of illness. I appreciate that. One of the sweetest portions of the cruise was when most all staff were on stage at the Regatta Lounge to thank the passengers and an opportunity for the passengers to thank them for their efforts. It is so nice to eat where and when you want without any rules. My husband and I have noticed that the mid-cruise feedback process is taken very seriously by staff; any concerns are addressed immediately The Regatta, recently renovated September 2019, has elegant, embroidered fabrics. The artwork was lovely and the color palate soothing. Our concierge cabin was small, but extremely elegant and convenient. Plenty of storage. The soundproofing made our room very quiet, even though we were right by the elevator. I enjoyed a facial, pedicure and amazing 75 minute hot stone massage in the newly established spa. I especially enjoyed hearing the talks from the marine biologist about bird and fish life. The historian did a great job educating us about our upcoming ports. The expansive library is quiet with an extensive collection and duplicates of more popular titles. The internet worked pretty well. I love the 4 pm high tea with the elegance of the string quartet and being served with white gloves and silver service. The two for one cocktails were nice and contributed to a sense of conviviality among those sailing. For those unhappy sailors I suggest finding another cruise line more to your liking instead of complaining about your first world problems about not being addressed in the proper manner or having to unpack your belongings.

Billed as hi end luxury to Aus & NZ with exciting stops. Was average cruise but 3-4 times what it was worth. Very dissapointed with kangaroos &koalas tour, few kang in trees, two koalas - do not go on morning tour. Gratuities not inc for drinks -18%! We were sick on board & charged fortune for what seemed excessive treatment for flu & bronchitis. Profit center charges. Food in cabin generally arrived cold. Cheap Mickey Mouse game with internet access. Shows & dancing too late - never got to dance once. Missed two stops for weather - should compensate passengers, even so. These are the experts, we didn't get what we paid for, they should know stops are missed at this time of year. Not inadvertising. Overall quite dissatisfied. My wife confined to cabin, missed 1/3 cruise but no offer of compensation, very expensive cruise of a lifetime ruined- feel very ripped off. Read Less

Oceania admits they charge more because they offer SIZE, SERVICE, and PORTS. All we got on this cruise was Size. Our renovated cabin had a large depression in the floor next to the bed that was a major tripping hazard. Housekeeping said it had been reported but management chose not to fix it. We asked for a different cabin and had to keep asking and eventually we were given a different cabin (same size, different floor) but had to pack ourselves. After 3 trips with keys that didn't work and 30 minutes of waiting for someone to open a door and several wasted hours, we dragged our carry on bags up the stairs while the ship did send someone with a trolley that could hold the 2 large suitcases. Shame on Oceania !! We should not have had to move ourselves because you gave us a room that should not have been in use. There was terrible service in the dining room almost every night and we were usually a party of 6 or 8. Exceptions were the days after we finally complained to the heads of dining. For example, they offered menu's and didn't return to take orders without us going to the maitre'd and asking for someone. They served a delicious sole with bone in, but failing to de-bone or tell us the bone was in. In the premium restaurant, the same entree was automatically de-boned prior to serving. For this we got an apology and strawberries in our room. Waiters rarely offered suggestions and often did not know about substitutions. In one case our waiter did not know the ship had romaine lettuce even though ceasar salad was a nightly offering. I reminded several that the ladies at the table should be asked for orders first and served first. To make matters worse, the head of dining services argued with our party one night insisting we were in error and had misunderstood his invitation. He could and should have just apologized for the misunderstanding or said nothing at all, but he chose to argue he was right and we were wrong. I could hold it no longer and reminded him that the customer may not always be right, but they are always the customer. As to quality of the food, there were times that it was very good. They have chosen to make many of their dishes very low in taste so as not to offend guests who don't like spices. For people who have more adventurous taste buds, but menus are lacking. On our final night, when most cruises have a special dinner, when our waiter asked us what we wanted, 3 people at our table asked for a different menu - it was disgusting! We ordered from the "always available" section. How sad is that. This was our third cruise on Regatta and this was by far the lowest level of service we have seen. Only our house keeper regularly called us by name. One server called me by name and that was after our first terrible service in the dining room and I am sure we were the subject of a staff meeting. No more towel sculptures, no more personal touches. The renovations did nothing to address the terrible conditions in the Regatta Lounge where the "performances" are held. Only the first row of chairs can see what's happening on the stage. All that money spent and all they did was change some carpet and wallpaper and bring the staterooms close to what every other lower cost cruise line offers. And as for the 3 missed ports, including Milford Sound, which was something we were really looking forward to, there was NO EFFORT AT ALL TO OFFER SOMETHING TO THE GUESTS IN RETURN!!!! How about some kind of party or special dinner or dare I say credit? I didn't rate "shore excursions" below because we learned long ago that Oceania's excursions are NOT worth the money. They are expensive and crowded and we have arranged for private tours for many years and been very satisfied. You get to do and see exactly what YOU want and don't have to wait for your nearest and dearest 46 friends. I should never say never, but I can't foresee any reason why we would ever step foot on another Oceania ship again. Read Less
