Cruise Lima to Papette with Marina First checkin procedure in Callao We were dropped off by taxi and there was already a row of a few hundred people. It certainly took almost 2 hours before we were at a bus. We had to put our suitcases ourselves in the storage space of the bus and board ourselves. No employee of Oceania is present. We had been standing in the hot sun for a long time and ...

This was our third cruise with Oceania (all on the Marina) and around 18th overall, and the first where I've felt the need to write a review on this site. Embarkation: Not a great start. In Lima we waited an hour in line in the afternoon sun and heat at the entrance to the port to get on a bus to the ship. The only Oceania presence was a small canopy with the logo on it where you finally ...

I have been very fortunate to have travelled extensively my whole life, and I have been on many cruises. I just finished the Oceania cruise - Eternal Enchantment (16 Jan - 3 Feb 2018) and the pre-cruise tour - Machu Picchu (13-16 Jan 2018). This was the most expensive cruise (about $28,000 CAD) we (myself and my spouse) have been on, and it was also the least enjoyable cruise we have been on. ...

Chose this cruise for itinerary. That was the only good thing. Embarkation in Lima was disgraceful. We arrived at port in taxi dropped off outside the port to be faced with a very large queue no shelter from the blistering heat, no staff present. We were then transferred to the ship by bus to be met with an even longer queue, waiting to embark,we even had to unload our own cases from the bus, no ...

You only have to screw up one cruise experience to lose a devoted customer and despite 9 great experiences, the 10th one was bad enough for us to cancel a cruise scheduled for Jan '19 and put Oceania at the bottom of our cruise operator list. We chose this cruise exclusively to see Easter Island, and took Marina because Oceania had always done a great job (9 previous cruises). Not this time! ...

Beautiful ship decor to match any 6 star hotel. How ever...... When faced with a gastric bug hitting crew and staff leaving Lima and continuing for the full length of our trip never being under control, we both suffered the day after leaving the ship. The jacuzzis were never closed or the pool. Activities were curtailed so the saving to Ociana must have been huge. Trivia was ...

The itinerary was outstanding: Lima -> Pisco->Easter Island->Pitcairn -> South Pacific Islands but the cruise started out poorly. Oceania scheduled our air trip using LAN. LAN lost our luggage and because of the itinerary it was day 7 before clothes arrived! Embarkation was from a shipping port not a people port and cruisers were left standing in the sun for over an hour without word from Oceania ...

Unprofessional management at Oceania/ Marina

It all starts from the very beginning embarkation in Lima; Since Oceania did not informed us that the embarkation in Lima would be very different than one would expect we did experienced a nightmare; Both our faces and décolleté where sunburned because ( just coming from the airport ) we have to stand in the burning sun for more then 2 hours in line before we could embark a touringcar which ...

Started in Lima den 16.01.2018 We booked the trip mostly because of the destinationstrip sounded good and free internet, :-( - The ship said it's on their website that the internet is bad??? That almost never worked, and it took so long to come across that I most often gave up The telephone connection was also a very very big problem..... Date 16.03.2018 in Lima It was not ...

We chose this cruise for the itinerary, Machu Picchu, Nazca Lines and Easter Island, The pre-tour package for Machu Picchu was well worth it, the third party company chosen by Oceania was excellent. Boarding the tender at Easter Island was exciting to say the least, the crew did a fantastic job. I really think that Oceania has to stick to their recommendations, when the brochure says a ...
