Sail Date: Oct 2016
Cabin: Concierge Level

I am going to give nothing but good stuff to Oceania. Staff is extremely attentive, ship is spotless, the officers are the best, food is top line, and the excursions are about the best that can be offered.

Ship: The Marina is a great size 1200+ guests, staff ratios were almost too many staff for the guests. Which is a good thing rather than the other way around.

Cabins: Most are small. Bathrooms are smaller. I suggest spending the extra money for a Penthouse Suite, just for size reasons. Also, if you are over 6 foot 4 inches you are going to have trouble standing in the shower since the ceiling and shower head is 6 foot 4 inches from the floor. But, storage space is plenty. We took a lot of stuff and still did not use all of the drawers provided.

Cabin Review

Concierge Level

Cabin A1

Small size for top standard level. Recommend booking a penthouse suite. Ceiling in bathroom could be too low for very tall people. Over six foot four inches. Lots of storage space. Beds and linens are excellent. Towels are the very best we have experienced. Amenities provided are excellent (everything but mouth wash.)

Port Reviews

Palermo (Sicily)

Great place to visit the Sicilian culture.

Palma de Mallorca (Majorca)

Absolutely beautiful city and well organized for tourists. Palma has been a located for vacationers for a very long time, so they are seasoned to provide a good experience.

Monaco (Monte Carlo)

Brief visit, but just to see the class and style of Monaco was important for us.
