Disembarkation was easy at each port, even for those not taking Oceania tours. (Would not recommend using Oceania tours a la carte for St Pete, as each tour would return back to ship through all the traffic.) Heard of no virus outbreaks, & even at the buffet, servers spoon out your food, so no one touches the serving utensils without gloves. You can request your saved bottle of wine in any of the dining rooms & specialty restaurants, which were so fun & had delicious food. Spa services were excellent--that was the only time that I could use the sauna & steam room, as my cabin was not on that floor. Enjoyed this cruise, although it is quite tiring to go for walking tours for hours at each of the 10 stops (not really sure why our ship stopped in Kristiansand, but adored St Pete, Oslo, & Tannin). Would recommend.

Awesome but Tiring Cruise

Cabin Review

Verandah Stateroom
Cabin B1 7127
Tons of storage to include under-the-bed open area--didn't use 75% of it. Comfortable bed in room (outlets over each bedside table are European style) along with couch & table, desk & chair, golf umbrella, robe & slippers, safe, 32 hangers, shower with removable & rain shower heads plus separate tub, retractable clothes line, amenities. Room service is only food available from 5-6:30pm from after tea to dinner. Cruisers can earn "O" points from trivia, golf, shuffleboard, & ping pong tournaments that are redeemed for Oceania merchandise. Food is excellent, & nice that specialty dining is part of cruise package.
