Marina Cruise Review by Methusula

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Dec 2016
  • Destination: South America
  • Cabin Type: Concierge Level

We chose this cruise as we had been all over the word apart from South America. What better way to experience this continent but on the Oceania Marina.

Unfortunately we arrived in to Buenos Aires to be greeted by a strike of bag handlers. This caused a hold up at customs of some 6 hours. Truthfully the Meet and Greet facility was not handled very well. In fact very poorly.

That was the last complaint we had. The ship was, as we knew it wood, be excellent. From the cabin staff to all the other staff nothing was too much for them. The cabin was cleaned before we had finished breakfast each day. The activities were consistent with the size of the ship. Though some of the acts were somewhat repetitive. The information lectures were of a consistently high standard.

The food was of an exceptionally high standard, My wife and I had special dietary requirements and nothing was spared to comply with our needs. The special services for Channuka were well received and thanks was expressed to the ships company for their assistance.

The shore excursions that we took were somewhat expensive as is their tendency.

All in all an excellent, enjoyable and exciting cruise.
