This cruise had a good itinerary and went to cities we really wanted to see. The staff were wonderful, so polite and accomodating; the meals, especially in the Grand dining room and two specialty restaurants were all delicious and ... Read more

After having just read the review by Shoko I feel like we shared the exact same experience! I, too, discovered that Oceania was bought out by NCL and also found out that NCL is trying to 'come up' to Oceania's high standards. Well, in dong ... Read more

We sailed Oceania 5 years ago and loved it. This time we felt something different. We found out that it was bought out by Norwegian Cruise Lines. That explains it all. When we entered the room we had to get housekeeping to come back ... Read more

We are active, mature, independent experienced travelers who've been on 10 cruises or so. We had booked Oceania's Lima-Miami cruise, which they must have oversold because they kept sending emails inviting us to voluntarily switch to other ... Read more

Chose this cruise for itinerary (good) and reputation (overrated). Oceania's website is very poor which reflected their organisation. We booked Oceania air because of a direct flight, then found the flight was re-directed and when we ... Read more

I do not have adequate words to describe my first cruise on Oceania. Our carry on luggage was lost during embarkation and the Oceania staff told us they had searched the ship and could not find it. After hours of aggravation, my ... Read more

My wife and I chose Oceania for the interesting itinerary - Bangkok to Athens via some exotic ports. Top on our list was Petra, Luxor and the Valley of the Kings. We were on Deck 6 near the front on the Starboard side. The cabin itself ... Read more

I chose this cruise because of the ports it would visit and the extras included in the OLife Choice, which for us included airfare, 8 shore excursions (four for each of us) and unlimited wifi (one login which we shared on all devices). We ... Read more

We chose Oceania thinking it would be a step up from HollandAmericaLine, we were very wrong. The cabin, a balcony state room was smaller than the smallest HAL ocean view cabin we have ever had. The cruise director, David, is past ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of its itinerary, however the weather spoilt the first part of the trip as it was freezing in China and Japan. We had previously travelled on the Nautica in the Baltic and in hindsight we should have learnt ... Read more

The itinerary was the main reason for selecting this cruise. Also the boat is identical to an Azamara cruise we went on in the past which we absolutely loved. Plus Oceania was rated 1/2 star more "luxurious" than Azamara. I ... Read more

I had cruised with Oceania before on the Insignia in the Mediterranean. After cruising on a large cruise ship, I had sworn not to ever take another cruise, but Oceania changed my mind. The food is top-notch with so many different choices ... Read more

Chose the ship for the Itinerary and a promise for a luxurious onboard ambiance and enriching destination experience. Nautica did not live up to their promise. For example, while in South Africa (5 ports) it would have been nice to offer ... Read more

I had never spent this kind of money for a cruise before and was expecting that the cruise would match the dollars I had spent. It came no where near what I had paid. The cost worked out to $436 Canadian ($333 US) each a day for the ... Read more

We chose this cruise purely for the itinerary, which is different from most of the cruises in this area. Firstly, before booking, we had consulted the reviews, and knew roughly what to expect. I get fed up with listening to some of ... Read more
