*First cruise on Oceania, although 3rd cruise in a "R ship", so we knew what to expect when it came to the tiny cabin shower, public spaces, size, etc. Compared to Azamara's ships this recently refurbished ship is marginally better. *Itinerary was good but some of the port departure times were too early and detracted from the on-shore "tourist" opportunity. *Can't say enough good things about the dining experience. *The staff and their service were wonderful. However the ship's shops were pricier than expected for the usual cruise ship stuff. *We had included business class air that was the major disappointment for the trip. The airline (AA/BA) was fine but the routing were poor; a) not as direct as possible and b) "legal" but very short connection times. This was an issue both going and coming from the ship. For example, coming home; we would have missed our connection in ORD, except that our domestic flight out of ORD was 1 hour late in departing. * The 2 enrichment lecturers and the 2 bridge instructors were great. We dropped in on the beginner bridge game lesson and enjoyed it so much, we attended every one thereafter.

Great cruise but not great included air
