The marina is a very comfortable ship and we and our 4 friends had a great time. Staff is very courteous and helpful; entertainment was excellent; the 4 speciality restaurants were superior - my favorite was toscana (italian). The main dining room was a disappoint. service was slow and uneven and i generally did not care for the menu offerings. we tried it 3 times for dinner. the sunday brunch at sea was quite nice. however, it seemed to all of us that it was cut back from previous sailings (the effect of now being part of nclh ???). The buffet is superior as compared to princess and holland. lamb chops & lobster tails always available at the grill. unfortunately, the king crab legs which used to be available every day were absent for all but the last day or two of the cruise (another nclh cutback???). We tendered at all ports and unfortunately could not tender at easter island on day 2 of that port. bummer, but not oceania's fault. Lectures were very interesting and the lecturers seemed to know their stuff. (oh, btb, if you're saving your "o" points for their junk prizes, most of them have increased the number of points required.). O's transport is pricey and we booked private transport to/from the ship at a significantly lower cost. ditto for excursions.
