An Amazing Cruise

Marina Cruise Review by Neil B

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Oct 2016
  • Destination: the Mediterranean
  • Cabin Type: Verandah Stateroom

This was our first cruise but the couple we were with have cruised 17 times.

From the initial contact to our disembarkation the experience was an absolute positive one. Our flight from Montreal to Rome was long but uneventful and was completely organized. our arrival at the Marriott Flora was expected and we were greeted at the entrance by an Oceania Representative. The next day we were transported to the Marina which was such a positive and exciting event.

Once we received all the necessary accreditation we went to the Grand Dining awaiting the final prep of our Stateroom. The room itself was large with a very large balcony; it remained spotless the entire cruise. The staff maintaining our stateroom exceeded our expectations.

From the Capitan Leo, General Manager, Damien Lacroix, Cruise Director, Peter Roberts, Food and Beverage Director, Marc Walter, Chris Rogan Development and Head Chef Alexis every single person to the deck staff were so helpful and accommodating.

The Ports of Call and the organized tours were excellent and even the tours we coordinated on our own great. Thank you Marina for a holiday Adèle will never forget. (Thanks Diane and Louis).

The food was exceptional and exceeded all our expectations. i cannot say enough about the Entertainment Team headed by Jason and the Social Director, Katie. One of our favourites on the Ship were the Bellissimo String Quartet with Sasha, Inna, Kristina and Polina; we looked forward to hearing you every day.

Cabin Review

Verandah Stateroom
Cabin B3 7120

The cabin was large enough for us and very well laid out. The balcony was huge with two chairs, table and two chaisse lounges.
