As virgin ocean cruisers, but experienced river cruisers, we were not sure what to expect. We chose this particular cruise mainly because of the reputation of Oceania, the cruise had only one sea day, a relatively small number of passengers (684), many destinations that we had not visited and a competitive price.
Getting on and off the ship was easy at all times of the cruise which was one of concerns about ocean cruising, although our luggage took a long time to appear even though we were one of the first to board.
The ship itself was also pleasantly fitted out and with many activities to participate in, although the only ones that we took advantage of were the daily trivia (good fun), lectures (excellent) and the evening shows (average).
The bed and cabin were comfortable with enough space to relax on the sofa or the balcony.
Adequate storage for clothes. Desk space a little small mainly because of large water bottles and ice-bucket on the desk in spite of a fridge in the room. Bathroom functional.
