Standards onboard were excellent, we have sailed 7 times now with them and have always had brilliant food and service second to none. Ship is as beautiful now as she was 3 years ago. A lovely feeling throughout the ship. A lot of cruise lines seem to be cutting back but we have seen no sign of this with Oceania. One word of warning we had a lovely penthouse suite with a large balcony (7133) but on docking when the bow thrusters were used it badly shook the suite, don't know why!! our neighbours didn't feel it. but it certainly woke us up every morning. (ok I suppose if you are an early riser) We will certainly avoid that one next time. Excellent shows by CD Ray Michaels and also onboard was ex CD Nolan Dean (Hosting activites to help out as new cast had just boarded) his show was excellent and the final song he sang with his partner Emanuelle was great, she also did her own show with the songs of Edith Piaf, what a performance!! she put so much emotion into it - brilliant night.

As good as ever
