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 was a breeze.Entertainment was Ok, nothing special due to the size of the lounge. The hot tubs were great temperature, we did not use the pool or the spa. Dining was excellent as we expected. Polo Grill was our favorite. The beef melted in your mouth. The buffet in Terrace Cafe was also of excellent quality. We ate breakfast and some dinners there with many great food choices.
We met 18 other fellow cruisers and arranged a Meet and Greet with them. The staff was very willing to accommodate our needs. We also planned a farewell dinner in the main dining hall for 20, and again, the staff went out of their way to make it happen. I liked that Oceania gave us free bottled water when leaving or returning to the ship from side trips.
