Marina in Key West, FL 12-2-21
Puerto Madryn Argentina
Sunday 2 January 2022
Most shops closed, but what a joy to see children playing on the beach and enjoying sunshine.
For those in Penthouses and above you have complimentary access to the Spa Terrace.  The loungers have been upgraded during the Oceania Next program
We always love to do a cooking class aboard Riviera or Marina.  This one Viva Espana was excellent.

Weak Ship Excursions and Uninspiring Food

This was our second experience on Oceania, the first being the Riviera in the Med. The ship sponsored shore excursions as noted in previous comments were really limited coach tours of the countryside. One described as an extraordinary rail journey was 5 hours on a couch and an hour on a train retracing the same scenery the coach traveled. There were only about 15 minutes that the train traveled ...

This was our fourth Oceania cruise and we have become accustomed to the high standard of service and food. One disadvantage of going ashore in a tender/life boat is that high waves will keep you onboard. That happened on one stop in Australia. Paid tours were refunded. Another disadvantage of stopping at small ports is the limited resources there to accommodate all passengers who want a ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

This was our first cruise. We travelled for more than 30 hours to reach Sydney and then were told that we could not board the ship for 5 more hours. We were exhausted and just wanted to get to our cabin and crash, not spend 4 hours on a bus tour of Sydney. The ship was very good and offered a variety of activities and dining options. The cabin service was also very good and the staff was ...

• Pre-cruise communications o A personalized booklet was prepared for the travelers in each cabin and delivered about 1-month before the cruise. This is the most impressive document we have ever had which includes all the dates and ports-of-call, stateroom information, embarkation information, dinner reservations, a listing of available ship’s tours, descriptions of available services and ...

Don't book with Oceania...

Don't book on Oceania: Unless you want to be "nickeled & dimed". Unless you are over 70 years old. Unless you are a married couple.... and don't, don't, don't book directly with Oceania (use a travel agent- that was you have an advocate and perks that you don't get with Oceania directly. Don't upgrade to the concierge level (it is a total waste of money). I booked this cruise a year in advance ...

This was our first Oceania cruise which was recommended by our travel agent. We have previously cruised on Celebrity, Azamara, Carnival, Uniworld and Silversea. We choose this itinerary as it has long been on our bucket list to see Australia/New Zealand. Flight arrangements were made with Oceania with air deviation to arrive several days ahead of time in Sydney and to stay an extra night in ...

Third cruise on the Marina. I love a new ship no smells or mold. Penthouse 1 a perfect size for a longer cruise. Butler and cleaning staff were excellent. Room under Waves Grill a bit too much noise at times. Gym and trainer excellent. Good equipment and nice selection of classes at the gym. Was a wine cruise, with good lectures on wine. Food not the best. The special wine dinner at ...

Marina and Oceania Have Some Things to Address

We are in our early 60's and have been on the Marina last January for 12 days in the Caribbean along with 40 other cruises on 9 different cruise lines. This is an overview of our 16 day adventure to a wonderful place in the world where the people are kind and friendly and the scenery is spectacular. The embarkation was so easy because the ship overnight-ed in Auckland. Beware of the hotel ...
