Sail Date: Dec 2016
Cabin: Verandah Stateroom

We chose this cruise to see an excellent view of S. America aboard a high rated quality ship with a mid to high price point. We were not disappointed in the itinerary, food quality, service, ship command, and overall ratings.

We had some incredible adventures and tried out most of the offerings that Oceania is rated for. As travel agents our view was critical but open to receive the benefits that others tout as advantages of the ship and line.

Our ratings reflect our experience and the many comments of a back to back cruise during the holidays. I include suggestions for others making the voyage based on our own experience and preferences. Our interest was to see many ports as possible and a broad view of S. American countries. With thousands of photos and stories untold our stories and experiences speak volumns.

Cabin Review

Verandah Stateroom

Cabin B1

We chose this rare cabin for location on the bow. This cabin and 8001 are the only two on the ship between two suites. Because of the weather and itinerary I would not choose this cabin again because of rough seas, riding the waves and pounding crashes on sides. However, this attitude changed multiple times when we were the first to witness the stunning scenery and solitude afforded in this location. Watching the moon rise to a full sky of stars, the glacier in Patagonia, coming into ports or heading out to sunsets with a full view. On the second cruise our cabin was premier through the Panama Canal and on sunny days for privacy and solitude.

Port Reviews


Left the ship and went to the market and a four hour walk around downtown and the beach. Architecture, history and culture everywhere!!!


It was cold, rainy and for us mildly interesting. For the time it took to come and go back to the mainland I would have preferred more Argentina or staying overnights

Buenos Aires

Perfect location for the city. Within walking of downtown, the faire on Sunday and great restuarants.

Buenos Aires

Soccer or futbol is king here so if you are passionate go to the museum at least or a local match.
