Sail Date: Apr 2017
Cabin: Veranda Stateroom

My wife and I chose Oceania for the interesting itinerary - Bangkok to Athens via some exotic ports. Top on our list was Petra, Luxor and the Valley of the Kings.

We were on Deck 6 near the front on the Starboard side. The cabin itself was quite tiny and the bathroom even more starved of room. We did have a balcony so there was a little more breathing space but generally, we were surprised and disappointed with the size of the cabin. Our cabin stewards were excellent and kept the place clean and tidy.

We had a fair number of sea days on this voyage and unfortunately the activities on board were sadly lacking. The two male speakers lacked academic qualifications and their talks were predictably dull, lacking an overall theme. One of these gentlemen giving a talk on the Red Sea used diagrams straight from Google and tellingly pronounced Port Said as Port Siad!

Cabin Review

Veranda Stateroom

Cabin B1

Small with a giant mirror behind the bed. Small flat screen TV and DVD Player.

The air-conditioning fan is louder than we would have liked but we got used to it. Drawer space is a bit lacking although there are a couple of wardrobes with hangers that hold quite a lot. Balcony is a reasonable size with a small table and chairs. The bathroom had a very small shower with sink and toilet.

There is a small fridge and you can ask for items to be removed to make more room for your preferred beverages.
