We've traveled on Oceania in the past and wanted to try one of the smaller ships - hence, the Sirena. The ship is lovely, after the recent renovations, but is not for everyone. The cabins are quite nice- the bathroom is not - it's sooo tiny,,,and the shower - well, let's just day it''s a challenge. One wonders why they were not enlarged...The itineraries seem port-intensive, which is a good thing, as there its relatively little to do on board but visit the (fine) library, read and sit by the pool (if you can find a chair). The food was good though. not as good as I recall from the larger ships and items ran out quickly. Over the 10 days, the ship ran out of figs, mangoes, and fresh orange juice, the items you go on an Oceania cruise for (given their reputation for high-end dining) and this was just at breakfast... The entertainment in the evening was the cruise director serving as a magician, an overly-loud singer and a poor production show. The sound system amplifies everything so that you hear booming noise rather than attractive voices. Would we do the smaller ship again? probably not... Read Less

Family recommended this cruise line and went with family and friends. This is our 7th or 8th cruise in last two years. Pros: Staff was friendly, accommodating, room very clean. John at the omelette station was an artist and made breakfast very enjoyable. Sauna, steam room and showers very good--Great water therapy tub with jet movement Cons:: Dining and food experience horrible. Meat and fish bland, flavorless, and poor quality. Choices on dinner buffet same as main dining room. Only had one or two meals that were ok. Breakfast same every day. Specialty dining (2 restaurants) were ok--nothing special and service very slow. Same pizza every day--cannot customize like just get a tomato pie like other ships. Entertainment: Singer and piano player at show was very good. Show last night of cruise was good. The rest of the shows were terrible. One night was Super Bowl and tonight is the Oscars on our TV or in lounge. NO LIVE ENTERTAINMENT AT THE POOL EXCEPT FOR ONE HOUR IN 10 DAYS, AND THIS WAS JUST THE HOUSE BAND. Activities: Very limited and nothing that interest me or wife. There are two hot tubs in the pool area--However they are not hot--they are warm. I complained along with many others and was told that temperature was 80 degrees F and met regulations. This is my 7th or 8th cruise in the past two years--Celebrity, Royal Caribbean, Holland America. Just cruised Royal Anthem of the Sea last month for 11 nights almost same itinerary and paid $3,000. Sirena cost $6,000 for same room (Balcony) COMPLETE RIPOFF--- Cabin: Shower designed for children, not grownups. Toilet placement made it impossible to place one leg. I had to use public bathrooms on other decks to have a bowl movement. Room very poorly laid out with bed in center and no space to walk around. Bottom line question:: Would you go again? No--Not on this ship Would I recommend Oceania to a friend? Definitely not this ship. I've heard good things about Rivera, but won't take a chance again. One more thing about age, I'm 71 and wife is 70. Probably 95% of passengers were in their 80's or 90's. I hope I made it to my 80's and 90's but much older crowd. No babies on ship or little kids. I still had a great time being with friends and family, but just too many misses and issues with this ship. Everyone was disappointed that we couldn't embark at the private beach the last day cause of high winds--but that was not fault of cruise line--- Read Less

I had sailed with Oceania before it was taken over by Norwegian Cruise Lines. This was our first cruise since then. Dining room service so horrible. I complained in writing and was approached by an Assistant Captain while we were dining with friends in the evening. He wanted to talk about my dining room complaint. When i suggested we do that at another time, he said he wanted to do it now (in front of my friends while we were dining.). I was so appalled I told him that I didn’t want to discuss it now and would he please leave. Spa had no attendant; locks on lockers were broken and didn’t work; no sign that the hot tub was co-ed and was under the Horizons Club where people could see you. Luckily I realized that before completely removing my robe. Engine trouble, electrical trouble, elevators not working; concierge service does not mean you have a Butler. The room attendant does practically nothing besides cleaning the room. The usual bathroom shampoos are one at a time. Attendants not allowed give you more. Shower is so small that it’s hard to turn around. I am tiny 5” 112 lbs. i had trouble. I can’t imagine a slightly heavier person or a really large person. Entertainment: Magician 3 nights, Ukulele player 3 nights. Very average. Singer/Dancers poor. Lectures: horrible Read Less
