The Sirena was the new addition to the fleet and having sailed on all the others we thought we would like to be on it's inaugural voyage.
We took the section from Barcelona to Le Havre, 21 days. The SIrena is another of the old Renaissance ships. It was sold twice before Oceania purchased it last year and "refurbished" it. We expected something new and different, we got something old and the same. Nothing really wrong with that, but it was EXACTLY the same as the other sister ships, down to the same pictures on the walls!
They did renovate the suites and higher priced staterooms but everything else was the same. The main reason we wanted this ship was that they included Red Ginger as one of the specialty dining rooms. Unfortunately they tried to combine the Polo Grill with Toscana and failed. It was neither a steak house nor an Italian restaurant. They lost a lot of the key menu items from both venues and missed. The decor of both were terrific, the service great as always but lacking in identity.
Been there before
Nice port, interesting bridge
Went on our own
Just got on the ship. We received 8 free tours on this cruise so in the ports where we didn't have a tour we went on our own. O Life was a terrific value.
Didn't tour, we have been there three times earlier.
Missed the port due to fog
