Marina Cruise Review by beasleybird
- Sail Date: May 2012
- Destination: Western Mediterranean
- Cabin Type: Concierge Level
This was a very port intensive cruise so we probaby did not get to enjoy all this gorgeous ship had to offer. The only tacky thing was that despite their marketing, Oceania did not offer really any complementary tranfers to town. In fact in one port, we could not get to the designated port so we docked elsewhere and Oceania bussed us to the port. Then we were abandonned! They published a bus schedule. We took one bus to town. Then we arrived for our return bus 15 minutes early. The local contact advised us the return bus had already left as it filled up early. Next bus was in two hours!! some folks took a return cab. So again, there is no complementary bus/transfer! Same thing with complentary clothes pressing. forget it! We booked a concierge cabin. The complementary pressing covers one article per person. Hardly worth the print cost in the marketing material. So again, don't count on it.
Overall the ship and the food made this trip worthwhile. Regarding the shore excursions, way overpriced! Organize on cruisecritic and do your own!
