Food has always been Oceania's strength. This was our 7th O. cruise and we thought the food in the main dining room was not as good or as varied as on previous cruises. It was not bad ( we are not discouraged from cruising again with O, we've signed up for 50 days in 2017) but it is not as good as it has been in the past. This was a port intensive cruise with one sea day so there were not many lectures. There was only one speaker who gave three lectures and he wasn't very good. On our previous cruises with O. the speakers were very good.
Our one negative about the ship itself is about furnishings in public spaces. The tables in Horizons and the Terrace are much too close together. It is very difficlut to find a table where someone will not be bumped by servers or other guests. It is annoying. Also, the furniture in Martinis and Horizons, while looking great, is not user friendly. There is not a single chair (other than a barstool) we could sit on in Martinis. It is all low and soft. In Horizons all the window seating is big and soft. We found it uncomfortable and it also blocks the view from the more normal size chairs in the middle of the room.
