First time on Sirena

Sail Date: June 2017
Destination: Panama Canal & Central America
Embarkation: Los Angeles
Primarily chose this cruise because we wanted the Panama Canal crossing.

Food was overall good.

Disappointed that French Onion soup was never served.

The main dining room is also Jacques as there is insufficient space for 4 specialty restaurants. However, main or Grand dining room is never open when in port. C'est la vie.

Service in the main dining room was erratic. Sometimes excellent; sometimes terrible.

C'est la vie.

Terrace Cafe was very good but a smaller selection than Marina/Riviera (crab legs are gone - C'est la vie). Red Ginger was excellent - sea bass portion was consistently smaller.

Tuscan Steak House was excellent. Pretty much the same menu as Marina/Riviera.

Terrace cafe seemed to have significantly less staff to help those that couldn't manage carrying their own dinner plate.

Lobster tails, lamb chops, steak, etc still served at the grill. as well as make your own pasta.

Cabin More (balcony) was adequate - but just felt like I needed more elbow room.

Entertainers were good but the main lounge doesn't really have a stage and it limits the type of production show they can perform. Also visibility is generally not good as it's not stadium type seating.

Overall, we had a good time.....but I personally much preferred the Marina/Riviera. I've sailed Oceania 5 times and only once on the smaller ships. I'll only do their smaller ships if desperate.

As you might expect, there's considerably less shops due to the lack of space. Less
