Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Sep 2016
  • Destination: Canary Islands
  • Cabin Type: Concierge Level Veranda Stateroom

Chose this trip because of itinerary and good experience we had on prior Oceania cruises.

With the funds spent to refurbish this ship, we expected more. We found no WOW factor anywhere. Having recently traveled on the Marina, we found the food here to be disappointing.

We found several of our shore excursion guides less than satisfactory -- some did not keep group together, some lacked good English. Excursion in Funchal touted an embroidery factory where we would see process of making the beautiful Madeira table clothes, etc. Instead we were taken to a shop to purchase expensive merchandise.

Restaurants -- Tuscan Steak excellent, Red Ginger very good, Jacques Bistro lunches very good, Terrace good, Grand Dining Room disappointing on more than one occasion. We often felt more motion on this ship, even in calm waters.

Special entertainers were very good, the Sirena sextet of singers and dancers was same old/same old.

Overall assessment -- disappointing.
