We had not cruised with Oceania before and were pleasantly surprised. The size of the ship was perfect- not too big, easy to get around and never a line anytime or anywhere. Not even on an elevator.The service from everyone was stellar. The bedding was luxurious which provided a good nights sleep. A regular cabin with a veranda was spacious with abundant storage, large tub and a small shower. Even on this size ship they made sure to include many lovely common areas and niches for cozy conversation. Arrival and departure were a breeze. Free shuttles at certain ports were an additional bonus and very appreciated. The fine dining ambiance was exceptional and the food excellent but the space is extremely limited. You can make a few reservations prior to sailing but dining in these restaurants after that is almost impossible. The buffet is transformed into a lovely dining area with a grill station which includes fish, chicken and meat but unfortunately they repeat the actual buffet recipes. We did not dine in the main dining room nor did many others. The excursions were over priced and we opted not to take any thru the cruise. The evening entertainment was not very enjoyable although we went hoping it would improve- it did not. It was obvious that this was not a priority for the cruise line. The drink package was very overpriced. I hope corporate reads this and changes their policy. We were fortunate to get a very good price for the cruise and that made this an extremley good value. We would go again and are willing to pay even more to sail on Oceania
