Overpromised . . . Underdelivered

We chose this cruise line and itinerary due to reputation of cuisine, enrichment, upscale service & appointments. Oceania's marketing is stellar and we believed that this sailing would be heads above Celebrity, Princess and similar 5.0 or 5.5 ships. Sadly, we were mistaken. First two fine dining experiences were disappointing with inedible food, cold entrees, curious offerings like a potato ...

We chose this cruise because it was a smaller ship ( 680 guests) and because it was Oceania - a higher end line. We have sailed on Carnival (1x) Holland America (1x) Royal Caribbean (2x) Celebrity (2x) previously. We booked 2 years prior to sailing and we were looking forward to it as we hadn’t travelled due to COVID. The ship was small and because of that, (we had a balcony cabin )the ...

This was our second Oceania. But we have done a few other cruises over the years. The newly refurbished Nautica was very beautiful. Couldn't get a suite so we were on 7th floor with Balcony. Small room- Impossibly small shower and we're small people. Rarely got hot water. But the room Steward was outstanding! The food in all the places- specialty as well as Main Diningroom just VERY average! ...

Marina – September 15th – 26th – Italy, Croatia, Montenegro, Greece, France & Spain Let me start this by saying that this was our second cruise with Oceana and our twenty + cruise overall. If you asked me to write down three complaints about my last Oceana cruise – I would have a hard time coming up with anything. Our last Oceana cruise was near perfection – great customer service from when ...

We chose this cruise for the "island hopper" itinerary with many new-to-us ports (Minorca, St. Tropez, Corsica, Sardinia, Malta etc). It was definitely H-O-T in August 2022! We enjoyed the cruise very much. We did miss our stop in Toulon due to weather (a fierce storm that resulted in some local deaths from flash flooding). We did not use any ship's excursions (one we thought we were ...

You could call it a smoking cruise

Good cruise, which could have been better. Sad to report and review. Smoke and smoking affected everything. On board. In our room, verranda and walking on ninth and tenth floors. We couldn't use our verranda on the eight floor. We had friends on the seventh floor who also complained of the smell. There was cigarette and cigar smoking from our first to last day on board, ship. It's a safety ...

He said he was going to get the cook a thermometer. Lord only knows why he didn't have the proper equipment or training to start with Much of whatI had was cold Falafel that wasn't, ...

Friends had spoken well of cruises they took on Oceania (before the pandemic). Our originally scheduled cruise with Oceania was cancelled due to Covid, but we cancelled before the cruise line did, so we could only get "future credit" rather than a refund, which we would have preferred. We used the credit to book a cruise on Nautica to Spain, the Canary Islands, and Portugal. We enjoyed the ports ...

The food was very poor couldn’t even get a decent muffin - I lost weight. This is my 15th cruise so I know what things should be. Sea Days hardly anything to do, not like other Cruises. Our first time with Oceania we met a couple who have sailed with them 4 times and they wanted an upgrade they had to pay $500.00 for it when the ship was only 3/4 full no loyalty perks for them can you believe ...

All staff and crew were brilliant - it was a nightmare situation for them to deal with. Everyone was behind them - they did all they could to keep us all safe and happy. A wonderful crew and we love Oceania anyway!!! Everyone is very friendly, the crew relate so well to the guests, nothing is too much trouble and there is a general feeling of bonhomie. Even before the refurb of Nautica, ...
