amazing cruise!!! We seriously wished we didn't have to leave the ship! amazing ports (Marseilles was a snooze though)!! Would have loved more time in Barcelona and Venice. Amazing amazing shore excursions! The guides were better than excellent! great staff! We met so many nice staff people, and they made us feel so welcome! They Made us feel like royalty! Loved having Bulgari products in the room, and even bath salts. Things like that mean so much! LOVED having the concierge lounge....and the concierge was great! Very helpful! The food was better than amazing, it was perfectly done! It wasn't tons of food on the plate, and each signature restaurant was better than the next...but I loved the Grand dining room! There was always a lot to pick from, and the staff, especially Olivaria was the best. We were able to request her and she was the best server ever! The dining was heavenly! Even room service breakfast, which we did most mornings because of shore excursions, were fantastic! We Loved that Oceania had bus service from port to the city in most ports! It made things so easy! The only down side was the "free" internet...basically there was no internet! We couldn't get on and it was a bummer! We are already looking at next years options! I just keep thinking, all those WASTED times we went on Carnival because we didn't know any better!

Best Cruise EVER!
