Sail Date: Aug 2017
Cabin: Deluxe Ocean View

This was our 5th Oceania cruise, but the 1st one on one of the smaller ships (have always been on Riviera or Marina) -- and we will never travel on the smaller ship again. We understood that the cabins would be smaller, but didn't realize that the bathroom (the shower in particular) would be so tiny that it was almost unworkable. No countertop space, no place to put the clothes you wish to put on after your shower, and very little storage space in the bathroom at all; also no plug for the hairdryer. We have always touted Oceania for their excellent service and food. It seems that the sale to NCL had caused them to diminish their staff to the point that the service is definitely suffering. We have brought 10+ customers (with multiple cruises each) to Oceania, but are no longer sure we can recommend Oceania after this cruise.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Ocean View

We understood that the cabin on the smaller ship would be smaller, but didn't realize that the bathroom would be so tiny that it was almost unacceptable. The shower was so tiny that we couldn't turn around, and the only countertop space was the lowered toilet lid. There was no place to put clothes that we wanted to put on after our shower, or even a plug for the hair dryer.
