First getting on board, our cabin would be ready only by 3:00 pm not the case on my other cruises. Plus I have asked twice for two single beds not a King size bed with separate bed covers. The Verandah cabin 8001 situated in front of the Ship and more expensive B1 is not worth the money. In my opinion it is more narrowed and impossible to have distance between single beds. I would not suggest this cabin to anyone, for the pounding crashes of the waves at night and the morning sound of theanchors. I have never been in a Verandah cabin so noisy. Plus sitting down on the verandah you see a wall...you have to stand up to see better. But a specialthanks to Maria for attending to our cabin always smiling and helpful. The Marina is a beautiful ship . The food in the Grand Dining was good but often warm and not very hot by the time it reaches our table. I would say Jacques Pepin was my favorite restaurant. Thank you Elizabeth Nunes (concierge), for this special evening at the Grand Dining Room. It was a delicate attention to reunite for super the minority of French guests attending this cruise. The excursions are just OK but not worth paying this much for a Bus tour. Many times we are left after a short walk with the guide on our own. My favorite was Livero Wine Tasting Varramista and Volos in Mt Pelion. Overall, I would not return for another cruise on Oceania. I think with so manycompetitive ships people can have a less overpriced vacation

Oceania a one time experience for me...
