Excellent service, food was exceptional. Culinary classes and butler service made this our best cruise to date. New favourite port is Kotor Montenegro. Stunning scenery and friendly people. Service onboard was excellent, and it was nice to have shuttles into city centre in every port. Having a penthouse suite has spoiled us, and it was great to be able to order full service meals from any specialty restaurant into our cabin. The suite had a great little table and chairs at the foot of the bed. Our butler graciously took the order and delivered the meals with a smile. Laundry was easy to do ourselves, but the butler proactively shined all my shoes and we got two clothing items pressed at no charge. Our fridge was regularly and promptly stocked with our fave beverages and we never had to ask for bottled water once they knew what we liked. Oceania does many things extremely well. The excursions list was a little uninspired so we did exclusively private and group tours with passengers through. Raise Critic roll calls. Only downside on 11th floor cabin was the overhang didn't allow us to see past a certain height, so star watching and sunsets were difficult to enjoy.
