We have been on Oceania twice prior and because 3 nights in St Petersburg, 14 days and the Baltic was on our bucket list. Every place we had not been to and that was really appealing. We had travelled with Oceania twice prior and relatively positive experiences. The staff, whether, food, drinks, entertainment or cabin staff are excellent and very accommodating. The negatives, - Showers are far too small for normal people like us. - the internet, complimentary on level 9 was pathetic. We took this cruise so we could keep in contact with Australia. Sadly to log on to pay wages, took 8- 10 times and 2 hours. if not for Concierge on 9, this critic would be very poor. he should be commended, NOTHING was too much trouble. - We didn't participate in cruise tours as we found them ridiculously over priced. we took private tours, more personal 6 people for St Petersburg, more informative and 1/3 of the price. - finally concierge level, is it value for $$, sorry we don't think so.

We choose Oceania because it was supposed to be an above average cruise line. Last year we had taken a Celebrity cruise and were disappointed, so decided to spend more money for higher quality. We were traveling with my sister and her husband. We were allowed to sign up for the "Speciality" restaurants 2 weeks before departure. The only times available were after 8:30, so the only restaurant we could try was the Italian Restaurant. It was excellent. We arrived at the ship in Stockholm and boarded at about 12:30 pm. However we could not access our room until 3:00. When we finally were able to go into our cabins, our key cards would not work and we could not open the doors. It took another 20 minutes to get that worked out. We had rooms with balconies, the bathrooms were nice and included a tub and separate shower. However the furniture was chipped, the carpet was stained and the sofa looked tired and a little dirty. Also, we found there was not enough drawer space and our larger suite case would not fit under the bed. The whole ship needs to be updated. The food in the main dining room was not good. One night they offered "short ribs" slow cooked. The mystery meat arrived sliced, no bone, and was not edible. They served lobster, and it was also tough and over-cooked. We went to one show, and did not bother to attend any others. The only positive I can say is the crew were very nice and helpful. And we loved the ports, we did the Baltic Cruise. I am not sure about the other Oceania ships, but we would not recommend the Marina at this time. Read Less

This was our third Oceania cruise in 4 years. The first two (on Riviera and Serina) were great in terms of cuisine and service. This cruise on Marina was much less satisfactory. The cabin (PH1) was as expected - plenty of room, well serviced and well stocked. The cuisine and service were still good, but not at the same level as before. The food choices at both terrace buffet and the dining rooms were essentially the same as on our first cruise 4 years ago. This includes the specialty restaurants, where the menus looked virtually unchanged from 4 years ago. Quality was still good but, again, just seemed a little old and needs an updating. The staff service was fine -- no complaints. The overall service throughout the ship was also high quality. The one area that actually improved was the entertainment. Both the performers and the shows were much better than our first two cruises. I have no idea why, but well pleased. The most obvious failure was the wi-fi internet service was atrocious. Getting connected was a 50-50 proposition at best and once connected you'd be "kicked off" within 5-10 minutes. This was experienced by all passengers and for the entire 10 days, both at sea and in port. We were given the usual excuses of poor satellite, too far from shore, etc. It was not totally true. One crew member who I complained to "admitted" the equipment was inadequate for the size of the ship and number of guests and would be replaced/fixed at the next dry dock stop. While wi-fi is a small piece of the cruise, the terrible performance coupled with the questionable excuses leaves a very bad taste. After the cruise I complained to Oceania customer service. Their response was nothing but boilerplate. I felt like a number rather than a valued customer. Would I go again? Since they're 2 out of 3 overall, I would consider Oceania for future cruises. However, it is definitely no longer my "go to" cruise line as it was before this cruise. Read Less
