Disappointment

We were traveling a two mature couples who have taken twelve cruises in the last 10 or so years. We booked with Oceania because we were told they had wonderful food and great service but were a little less expensive ...

This was a GREAT cruise from Bangkok!

I arrived in Bangkok a week before the cruise to take advantage of a pre-cruise land excursion (Oceania's) to Angkor Wat in Cambodia. The next day the Concierge arranged for a cab for the day, which took me to ...

Oceania Sinking

After many cruises with Oceania, this cruise was a large disappointment. To summarize: This cruise being 20 days with 8 days at sea plus another day with port arrival at 4 pm, we were assured by Oceania there would ...

Wonderful!

This was our first cruise with Oceania, after a few more 'family' orientated cruises in years past. Where to start! Embarkation: A little slow - but letting us board and going straight to lunch was a good start. ...

See Asia this way

Our first Oceania cruise but 'seasoned' cruisers, we would sum up the experience as wonderful. First, the itinerary, because we know you are likely just like us, choosing the cruise company based on the itinerary. ...

Went with Oceania from Capetown to Singapore . Don't do it sounds exotic but African ports other than Capetown not worth doing . Maldives and Seychelles were good but not enough to warrant this expense and time . ...

Dubai to Capetown December 2012

Firstly, there was a lot of talk on our board, prior to the cruise regarding whether to have a Yellow Fever jab. It was a no brainer for us. Had the shot, only reaction was a sore arm. We were asked to show our ...

This was our first Oceania Cruise. We picked it because of the itinerary Istanbul to Athens. Pros: We loved the smaller cruise ship with less then 700 passengers. Pick-up at the airport was prompt. Check-in and out ...
