Having already covered the mainstream Med ports pretty thoroughly, we chose this cruise because they offered places we had not been to. Having settled on the itinerary we then read reviews and were quickly sold on Oceania thanks to the positive reports. None of them were wrong.

The ship is beautiful and wonderfully maintained, the crew are all totally friendly and more than eager to please, the Concierge level suite was outstanding in both comfort and space, and the cuisine was way above any that we have encountered on previous cruises - both ocean and river types. The policy of being treated as an adult with regard to bringing alcohol on board was a good one. We didn't utilise this as we purchased a Beverage package but would have appreciated it otherwise.

Not having been to any of the shows in the theatre I can't pass comment. But we did enjoy the classical quartet and also the singer/pianist in one of the bars. Quizzes were always good fun as the Entertainment Manager had a great sense of humour.

The most comfortable bed EVER! Loved the Bulgari soaps and body lotions. Great having a bathroom big enough to accommodate both a bath and a shower.
