Sail Date: Aug 2014
Cabin: Verandah Stateroom

We've been regular cruisers on Crystal but decided to give Oceania a try because many people told us it was equivalent, and with better food.

The food was perhaps a tad better but everything else was much worse. Especially the (lack of) quality on-board entertainment. The Master of Ceremonies was okay but the dancers/singers and other acts were way below Crystal's standards.

Their version of 'The Bistro' was a tiny coffee counter with almost no seating. Very uninviting.

Cabin Review

Verandah Stateroom

The stateroom was fine. It was the other parts of the ship we didn't like.The ship's decor was old fashioned and a bit 'dark'. Food quality was the only redeeming feature.Entertainment was very sparse and not too enjoyable.
