I would not recommend cruising on this ship, the staff and personnel were great, the food was awesome. Its the small staterooms, the unreliable airconditioning,the electric surges and the electricity that made the ship come to a complete stop three different times and the crazy Captain that would sail through horrible storms. For 3.5 days we had 10-12 ft. seas, all people sick and one woman fell and broke her shoulder in 2 places. A gentelman had to be medevac because of his pacemaker during high seas, that was a sight to behold. The ports of call were sad, the good ones were the large towns. Oceana prides itself on using smaller ships so they can get into out of the way places, well that is not always good.
We paid for 5 excursions and only one was worthwhile, the one in Cartagena, Colombia.
The excursion to a nut farm in Guatemala was so terrible. We had to change busses 4 times because of flat tires. We had to walk about 500ft. in pouring rain through an uneven surface. There were hadicapped persons who got stuck in the mud of the trail. It was aweful. When we got to the building we did not see nut production we were pushed to buy Macademia oil and assorted products. This was not a free excursion, we paid to be abused.
