Sail Date: Jul 2016
Cabin: Deluxe Ocean View

While having cruised about 25-30 times on various popular lines, this was our first cruise on an Oceania ship. We chose this one for it's itinerary which included Scotland, Shetland and Faroe Islands, Ireland, Greenland, and Iceland (multiple ports). We met many lovely fellow cruisers. The ship is richly elegant, not glitzy like the more popular lines. The room was pleasant (veranda), but the shower was quite small! The one disappointment was the food, which Oceania makes a big deal about. We found it to be good, but no better than Celebrity, Royal Carib, or others. While the cruise was more expensive , we found the OLife incentives to be quite worthwhile. Taking this into consideration, the price difference was not that much to be concerned about. Would we travel on Oceania again? Absolutely!

What we found particularly interesting was that the breakfast and lunch buffets were served to us. We did not handle the serving pieces ourselves. Therefor the passing of germs from one person to another was greatly diminsihed. The was an absence of sickness and coughing, so prevalent on other lines. Very nice!
