Past experience with Oceania and desire for Alaska cruise. As always, food was great, cabins excellent. Only criticism is that shore excursions seem significantly higher and those available elsewhere. Found there were other bridge players on the cruise and a bridge director/teacher husband/wife team who were excellent. Crew was outstanding and were quite approachable and willing to discuss any aspect of the cruise or chat socially. Took in only one entertainment which was very good as well. Only one port had required the use of tenders so docking at all other ports was highly convenient. Had a butler for our penthouse suite and the service he provided was great. Housekeeping staff were excellent and always available and willing to provide any services required. Ship was immaculate. This was our third Oceania cruise and the first where we had to pay gratuities. We underestimated that cost (it is per person and not per cabin) so we over spent slightly trying to use our shipboard credits.
