This was our first time on Oceania, recommended by our travel agent, we have cruised approx 20 times on 7 different cruise lines, including Crystal, Seabourn, Ponant, Princess, Royal Caribbean, Azamera & Star line, .This was by far the worst cruise ever, food was dreadful in all outlets accept the speciality restaurants,,except for a few staff members, service was poor, the crew are obviously unhappy with there deal & are not interested, the food handlers have had little training & have no idea concerning food presentation, food is thrown on your plate at the Terrace, it also very noticeable that some supervisors don't interact with junior staff nicely. Prices of drinks are expensive, therefore the bars are empty with no atmosphere, everyone brings drinks on board & consumes them in their cabin. The Nautical entertainers were also below par for a cruise this long 30 days. The two speciality restaurants were very good, but not good enough to bring us back to Oceania. In the long run all inclusive cruises are far better value, the charges never stop on Oceania 2$ for the use of washing machine, another 2$ for the use of the dryer, 11$ for Yoga class, 9$ for head phones for the tread mill, this is before you have a drink.
