Additional details

Sail Date: May 2016
Cabin: Concierge Level

We cruised with Oceania for the first time last May because many friends had experienced Oceania and recommended Oceania Cruise Line. We did benefit from many specials starting with free internet, some free excursions, free gratuities. Free airfare and 2 for 1 pricing were available for everybody with Oceania Cruises.

If we go back, we would take a first night in Athenes before the cruise because of the red eye flight.

We appreciated that the specialty restaurants were free of charge though we were limited to one visit per venue per cruise. We never had to wait in the main dining room and were immediately accompanied to our table.. The service was excellent and personalised throughout the ship.

Cabin Review

Concierge Level

Cabin A4

The cabin was of regular size for the category. The bathroom was more spacious with separate bath and presented floor to ceiling ceramic/granit.

Our fridge was always filled with softdrinks and water, as many as we cared to drink.

We had access to the concierge lounge which offered softdrinks, sandwiches and biscuits, newspapers.

Port Reviews

Athens (Piraeus)

In Athenes, we went directly from the Airport to the port.


We walked around the port by ourselves.


We walked around the city by ourselves.
