How I would describe the whole ship is "understated elegance" including the public areas and cabins. It is a very beautiful and relaxing surrounding. Our regular concierge (A2) cabin was a generous size with appealing appointments. Of note (FYI): we liked our previous A3 cabin location on level 9 better than this "upgraded' one on level 10. The concierge lounge is on 9 and the laundry room there is accesible from both sides, but only on the far side (from us) on 10. The food is excellent, especially at the Red Ginger. The service and meals that we have had there are among (if not THE) best we have ever had. I am ashamed to admit that thinking about eating at Red Ginger was one of the causes for us to return to Oceania. We enjoyed all of the dining. We found the food and the service at the Grand Dining Room excellent and better than the Polo specialty restaurant. Our room was excellently serviced. All of the staff seems to be warm and welcoming with a nice "Hello" or "Good Morning" adding to the relaxing and beautiful experience.
