We have been on Oceania before and loved it and this was a great itinerary. The cabin was a little disappointing. It seemed a bit worn out. The bathroom has a big bathtub shower in addition to a small stall shower. Cabin steward was excellent. Food on Oceania has always been fantastic but this time we were disappointed. There are 4 specialty restaurants which were all excellent but the main dining room which is beautiful was not as good as in the past. The food was good but the selections were not as good. Overall we still love Oceania and would cruise again. The ports were very good and Oceania provides a free shuttle to the center of town in a lot of the ports. We generally do our own tours because we like smaller groups and lower prices than those tours that Oceania offers. The entertainment was good. We had a violinist, a piano player, a comedian and a magician in addition to the ship's singers and dancers. Read Less

Great ports to visit. The ship itself was 1st class in every way. We chose a penthouse which was spacious and very well designed. THE ENTIRE STAFF WERE EXTREMELY FRIENDLY AND The speciality restaurants were great, although we felt that the french restaurant was the weakest, while others thought it was the best. WE THOUGHT THAT THE ENTERTAINMENT WAS FOR THE MOST PART SO-SO AND Not enough on board activities during days in port. The internet was a big disappointment, the service was almost non existent for the most part. Another disappointment was the lack of snacks during the afternoon,other than cookies . Even with these negatives the entire trip was fabulous and we would not hesitate to book this ship again. It was a costly trip, but as they say you get what you pay for. IWE WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS SHIP TO ANY ONE WHO IS THINKING OF CRUISING Read Less

Having already covered the mainstream Med ports pretty thoroughly, we chose this cruise because they offered places we had not been to. Having settled on the itinerary we then read reviews and were quickly sold on Oceania thanks to the positive reports. None of them were wrong. The ship is beautiful and wonderfully maintained, the crew are all totally friendly and more than eager to please, the Concierge level suite was outstanding in both comfort and space, and the cuisine was way above any that we have encountered on previous cruises - both ocean and river types. The policy of being treated as an adult with regard to bringing alcohol on board was a good one. We didn't utilise this as we purchased a Beverage package but would have appreciated it otherwise. Not having been to any of the shows in the theatre I can't pass comment. But we did enjoy the classical quartet and also the singer/pianist in one of the bars. Quizzes were always good fun as the Entertainment Manager had a great sense of humour. The only negative I can post is that the Future Tours Manageress made us feel less than worthy of her precious time and was so rude to us that we walked out without booking as we had intended. I have since been in touch online with a marvellous Oceania agent based in London, take a bow Mr. Charles Deeall, and he has restored our faith to the point where we have booked a December sailing from Cape Town (our home) to Singapore.
