Sail Date: May 2016
Cabin: Veranda Stateroom

Having had a very poor cruise earlier in the year on Azamara Journey, just out of refit, and with high expectations having become accustomed to excellent cruises with Seabourn and Windstar, we were a little apprehensive about trying Oceania. We were soon put at ease with an excellent embarkation process in San Francisco. Having sailed on several 'R' class ships similar to Regatta, we knew there was little if any difference between cabins on Decks 6,7 and 8 but there is usually a difference in price and a worthwhile saving if you take Deck 6 instead of 7 or 8.

6023 was very clean, smart and comfortable and we had excellent service throughout the voyage. Open dining is a must have option on any cruise as far as we are concerned and we were not disappointed with the Grand Dining Room. Far from it it. The menu selection was diverse and interesting and often included fresh fish / seafood brought on board at various ports of call. The speciality restaurants (no extra charge) disappointed with neither food nor service being as good as the main dining room.

The running buffets at lunch were excellent and the Waves Bistro served an excellent hot dog!

Veranda Stateroom

Cabin B1

Typical of the 'R' class ships. Recently refurbished, everything in good condition .. And a very comfortable bed.
