We had food not prepared correctly and some almost raw in Polo In Toscanna they even forgot our bread and we canceled our last reservations in those two venues. Service was slow in the Terrace sometimes as long as 20 min. Signature sandwiches (ex: Pannini) were not prepared correctly in Waves. We only had quality meals in the Grand Dining Room. With welding on deck 10 and 11 for almost two weeks it was noisy and the deck on 11 was still not clean after 35 days Events were poorly scheduled and unless you likes lectures the seas days were boring during the day. With all the sea days there was Neptunes party and the boat competition and that was it for the pool. No country fair no officers challenge no Oceania Olympics. Entertainment at night was not up to comparison to regular Oceania cruises We had 4 nights where the sole evening entertainment was a movie. Three more nights were evening entertainment was watching passengers dance or participate in silly shows. I don't consider that up to Oceania standards for the main entertainment event for the evening. I am sure other passengers were ok with this but other Oceania cruises we have been on ran circles around this cruise!!!!! This cruise really felt more like a shakedown run. We felt we did not get our moneys worth If this is the way World Cruise segments are handled then I will have to reconsider in the future
