we chose the cruise because we had been on the Oceania marina a year before and the cruise was excellent (New Zealand to Tahiti). Also, the countries visited (China to India) were new to us. We selected a concierge veranda room, but there was virtually ne concierge service - no concierge lounge, just early boarding. Also, the room was very small and the closet space was minimal. the bathroom was very small and poorly designed. They said the ship had just been refurbished, but certainly not the rooms!. Service and dinning were fine, but excursions were overpriced and the excursion desk was not well run. I had to use the ship doctor and prices were outrageous - $350 for sinus medicine. The most popular topic of guests was the poor quality of rooms and the high costs of wine and drinks. This will probably be our last trip on Oceania.

Cramped rooms and high drink prices
