Super luxurious . Fabulous food and staff. Really was the trip of a lifetime .. Highly recommend though we went for the splurge option by having a penthouse with butler service. We would definitely use Oceania again . The only negative of the entire cruise was the dull yoga class ! Otherwise great. Avoid the extremely overpriced excursions other than the lovely schooner trips. You can either walk or use public transport in the ports that this cruise visits. Eg , subway in Buenos Aires and hop on bus is Montevideo . Other ports are easily walkable around .... Restaurants all excellent and it's the food , the amazing staff , the outstanding afternoon tea and the very interesting sociable guests who made this cruise so enjoyable. The ports that we visited were lovely , even Rio Grande was interesting and the tender process is extremely efficient. All in all , a wonderful experience ... Read Less

When our (my wife and I) scheduled Crystal Cruise to SE Asia fell apart due to multiple schedule changes, and with 3 weeks suddenly open on our calendars, we opted at the last minute to schedule this Rio to Buenos Aires itinerary (as far away as possible from covid-19 issues). We literally booked on Sunday before a Wedn departure from Rio. We considered a Celebrity Buenos Aires roundtrip as well as an Azamara Buenos Aires roundtrip which fit the dates but we picked this one because it was one-way and had more stops. When we arrived at the pier in Rio on Wedn, our names were not even on the passenger list, but we got that straightened out easily enough. We booked a Veranda stateroom which opened up at the last minute---the cruise being completely booked when I first checked it. Embarkation went smoothly after our status was straightened out and we were thrilled to find a beautiful stateroom- bigger than most in this category and well-appointed. After a much needed nap, after having flown overnite from the US, we embarked on getting to understand the most important element of this cruise and cruise line-- the FOOD! Four specialty restaurants are available at no extra charge and the game (at least for us) was to try to get reservations at these restaurants whenever possible because all agreed it was a superior product to the Grand Dining Room or the evening buffet. All guests were entitled to at least one night in each. The four are comprised of Asian (Red Ginger), steak (Polo Grille), French (Jacques), and Italian (Toscana). Since we booked so late for the cruise, we had no advance reservations, so we headed to the reservation desk and got to work. If you are flexible as to times and whether or not you will be at a group table (usually 6), generally you will get in. On evenings where all advance reservations were full, we would show up at 645p (all restaurants opened at 630p) and ask if there was a late cancellation or no-show. This worked and we ended up eating at a specialty restaurant all 12 nights of our cruise, 3 times in each one. All are truly excellent and would be $100 meals (or more) at a nice restaurant in a big city. We thought Red Ginger was the most unique with a Sea Bass to die for. Jacques was a close second, but the others were terrific as well. You can't go wrong with any of them! Breakfast and lunch were fine at the Terrace Grille. The Grand Dining Room was fine but a little ponderous for both those meals. This cruise had two speakers, Verne Lundquist (an American sports broadcaster) and another who was a South American history and geography specialist. Verne was well-received by the Americans on-board but others did not know him. The S.A specialist (whose name I do not recall, sorry) was interesting. We did not use Oceania excursions at all because of our late booking. We did use Viator and Tours by Locals online. I looked at the Oceania pricing and they seemed about double what you might pay through Viator. Oceania had a very competent on-board group of singers and dancers who put on some excellent shows, including the obligatory Broadway show. Their two single performers (a comedian and a ukulele player) were simply not up to standards expected on a major cruise ship. The comedian was especially off in his second show when he regaled us with stories of a major fraud crime he apparently committed in his past as well as ending his set with a story about "spiking" someone's drink. The audience literally cringed. Service throughout was excellent. Staff come from a wide variety of countries and all who deal with direct customer service spoke English very well. They were truly one of the stand-out parts of the ship. All in all, we had a very good experience on a cruise line we had barely any knowledge of before this trip. The food and the port-heavy itineraries make them well worth considering on all cruise planning. Read Less

Prior to boarding the Marina for our January jaunt up the western coast of South America and through the Panama Canal, I read many reviews here that had me slightly concerned. People complained that the portions were small in the specialty restaurants and that the food had deteriorated since our last trip three years ago. They complained about service in the main dining room (which I had experienced the last trip) that the buffet wasn't self serve and that portions weren't as large as when they go to Denny's. There were also a surprisingly number of complaint that the entertainment wasn't what it was on other lines. There were a lot of complaints from people - who sounded - like they lamented that this wasn't a Carnival Cruise. It wasn't; thank goodness. Oceania is all about the food. The four specialty restaurants were very good, with three of them being better than our last cruise (Jacques, Toscana and the Polo Grill) with one of them not quite as good (Red Ginger). The main dining room was much better in terms of food and service, and overall, the wine was far superior in all areas of the ship. Does this ship cater to children, or those who seek Las Vegas styled entertainment? In a word, no. There ARE excellent lectures focusing on the history and area of the world that you are in, there is a good string quartet, and piano player, library and games room. This is a cruise line that caters to food and wine snobs (of which I proudly acknowledge I am one). The food and wine on this cruise (including the Dom Perignon tasting dinner) were absolutely outstanding. The quality and service everywhere on board was better than our last cruise with Oceania, and you can tell the staff are - for the most part - extremely well trained. The ship is going in for a make-over in April of 2020, and I am looking forward to seeing improvements in decor and WiFi (the latter of which is truly dreadful) We didn't go on any company excursions as they weren't accessible (my wife is in a small manual wheelchair) and stupidly expensive. We preferred to do our own thing. If you like food, wine, literature, other educated guests, few children and well appointed rooms, the Marina is an excellent choice. Want Denny's sized plates of food and Vegas shows? Look elsewhere. Read Less
