We chose this ship because of the itinerary and small number of passengers. The staff, the dining, the communication during the trip, the cabin ( bed and linen) were all excellent. The shore excursions offered by the cruise line are expensive and if you are prepared to investigate tours yourself or walk down to the dock and take a chance on a tour, then they are at least 30% cheaper. The wine list was excellent and reasonably priced - we made use of the "buy a bottle and have the leftover wine cellared until we needed wine again" - a saving on wine by the glass. The passengers were a mixed age and if you are a couple on your own, then be prepared to share tables at most meal times and you will meet plenty of interesting, usually very well travelled people. We also liked the fact that all gratuities, all water, barista coffees, etc were included in the fare. Our US$400 on board credit each was perfect for us. Alaska was very interesting and the sailing was very smooth even down to San Francisco. We would definitely sail with Oceania again.

Cabin Review

Inside
Cabin F 7071
Completely black at night - we slept really well. It was also very quiet and well air-conditioned.
The cabin is well designed so that we could easily unpack all our clothes for the 10 days and put our suitcases under the bed.
I was concerned that the Laundrette was behind our cabin on the plan, but we couldn't hear any noise and it proved very handy to iron.
