This was our fifth cruise with this line and we were in the minority. Most passengers we met had enjoyed many, many more. Service is attentive. Our circumnavigation of Australia provided us with diversity in choice of ports. We appreciated the shuttle buses to the city centres. Unlike other cruise lines we have used, Oceania has a nice bistro where you can get speciality coffees and not have to swipe your card-a pleasant experience, and the place was always busy. There are nice sofas and chairs for your comfort. You don't have to buy bottled water or soft drinks, either. I hate the hard sell of other lines for soft drinks and coffee. The negative is the tiny bathroom with the tiny shower for tiny people, They don't appear to have been updated since Sirena's inclusion. Oceania's shore excursions are expensive. It does, however, provide information to go it alone and a local representative was available at the gangway. The lectures we attended were very interesting. Not sure yet when we will cruise again but, depending on the itinerary, it will be wih Oceania. You can't beat their beds and pillows for comfort-slept like a baby.
we enjoy inside rooms - usually on a short hallway and, consequently, very quiet. Nice and dark for sleeping. We spent, apart from sleeping, almost no time in our room and got to enjoy the ship's amenitie and meeting fellow passengers. They are the same size as balcony and outside rooms. We made the mistake once of booking an obstructed view room which is smaller and the window loverlooks a life boat (and the crew occasionally working in it-keep your clothes on). Not worth the extra money.
