I'm an experienced traveler but novice cruiser. The flight booked for us by Oceania left a little to be desired as we were routed with a change when there was a direct flight available from our local airport (Denver) to Miami. Pick up from airport was slick and boarding process was simple and quick.

We had a concierge level balcony room which was well furnished, clean, but maybe lacking in power outlets for our geek heavy lifestyle, fortunately we had thought to bring a power strip with us! All interactions with ships crew was polite and they always treated us as though they were genuinely pleased to see us. All wait staff were attentive without being intrusive in both restaurants, dining room and terrace grill. The selections of food was wide and all were excellent. The duck was especially good in the dining room, very moist and flavorful. The selections of wines was phenomenal and the wine waiters were knowledgeable and never steered us wrong, which is especially hard as we have very particular tastes in our wines and often don't like what each other likes!

The offered shore excursions were varied and well organized, the guides were informative, helpful, eager to explore there given countries and cultures with us. The ports of call were varied and all well maintained, from tourist havens like Cozumel to more primitive Belize City.

Cabin Review

Cabin Concierge

A great cabin one of only 4 at this smaller size on deck 8, if I have any complaint it's that the closet and bathroom doors hinder the use of both at the same time.
