Cruise was fine (our fifth) but transport from LHR to Southampton was poor.

Book your own transport. It took well over an hour AFTER we had gotten thru customs and immigration control before the bus arrived. Then the bus stopped at two other Terminals in Heathrow to pick up passengers. ...

Very nice cruise, but not sure it was worth the extra cost.

My wife and I are veteran cruisers, but this was our first cruise with Oceania. The ship was, at first glance, a bit underwhelming, especially as compared to the larger, and glitzier mass market megaships. But we ...
