Oceana Cruise Review by Bluebell28

There ship was a perfect mix of activity and relaxation. The entertainment in the starlights theatre was brilliant, I especially enjoyed the Encore performance of West end hits.
My daughter loved the kids club and still talks about it now, a month later. The pirate pool was fun for her to splash around in safely, although it needed a good clean. I found that the pools and pool areas were not large enough to accommodate the number of passengers on board, particularly on sea days where most people reserve sun beds all day with towels.
We had freedom dining at the Ligurian restaurant but only ate there once. I had steak but it was inedible, very overcooked and served inexplicably with gravy and chips. It really was disgusting. The food in the buffet restaurant was a lot better and we preferred the more relaxed and spacious environment. One memorable lunch time was spent seated at the window overlooking Vesuvius.
All the staff on board were so helpful and friendly. Our cabin steward Danny was brilliant. The shops on board were pleasant to have a wander around on sea days.

Cavtat Walking TourCharming Cavtat and Dubrovnik excursion. We had a lovely time, Cavtat is beautiful. We had a little splash around in the water and a look around the shops. There was probably too much time in Cavtat and not enough in Dubrovnik. The guide was very informative on the drive to Cavtat where we had amazing views across to the old town of Dubrovnik.View All 27 Cavtat Walking Tour Reviews
Pisa Walking TourPisa half day tour with trolley ride. It was supposed to last four hours but we got back to the ship after 3 hours. There wasn't much to do in Pisa with the time we had available. We had a quick wander around, had some photos, an ice cream and then time to go. The trip was very overpriced and many people struggled to understand the guide's thick Italian accent. The trolley ride was pointless, didn't see anything interesting. Im glad I went, just so I can say I've seen the leaning tower.View All 80 Pisa Walking Tour Reviews
VeniceThe ship was offering a transfer in to Venice but the price was ridiculous. We took a short walk from the dock to the people mover and paid €3 for a monorail ride to Place Roma. From there we got the number 2 Vaperetto (pushchair friendly) to St Mark's square. The Vaperetto was a good way to see Venice without the walking in the heat. After a wander around and sightseeing we got a water bus back to place Roma for the People mover.View All 1,422 Venice Cruise Port Reviews
