Jacques you should be ashamed!

More than a disappointment, we felt duped! Jacques Pepin should be ashamed. Our seven day cruise on the Marina ended as efficiently as it began- no more no less. The cruise experience was Applebee’s food on a fair ...

Thoughtlessness, sickness and denial

You only have to screw up one cruise experience to lose a devoted customer and despite 9 great experiences, the 10th one was bad enough for us to cancel a cruise scheduled for Jan '19 and put Oceania at the bottom ...

Corporate changes having negative impact on Oceania cruises

We have cruised with Oceania several times over the past several years and it is apparent that Oceania is in decline as an organization. We just competed two cruises on the Marina (Norway and British Isles), and ...

So Oceania's Marina is beautiful and the crew and staff are the best., but that doesn't make up for the negatives. They advertise free air fare. Which is a chartered flight out if LAX on Tahiti Air. This flight is ...
