Sirena Cruise Review by chrisrich68
- Sail Date: October 2016
- Destination: South America
- Cabin Type: Penthouse Suite
The food in the restaurants was outstanding, The 2 speciality restaurants - Tuscan and Red Ginger where superb as was the Grand Dining Room. Many guests regretted the demise of Toscana the Italian restaurant which has been replaced by Red Ginger. The young entertainment team were a delight and their performances were the best we have seen on a cruise to date. The enrichment lecturers on a range of subjects from within the Caribbean and the Amazon were informative, interesting an well presented. Most days we used the facilities in the gym which were excellent and we had 3 massages in the spa. Whilst the spa is excellent the costs are very high.
The thing that struck us the most was the quality and courtesy of the staff. They came from over 40 different nationalities spoke English very well and were please to help in any way. It is a credit to Oceania to train and turnout such an impressive crew from so many different parts of the world. We did have 1 or 2 niggles on board. For example the 2 hot tubs on the pool deck were so so hot very few guests used them. Despite many requests for the heat to be turned down to a sensible temperature no action was taken. Oceania need to think about the risk of elderly people going in over heated hot tubs. We were so impressed with Oceania and in particular Sirena that we are undertaking another cruise on the ship around Australia.
