We tried Oceania. We have cruised Silverseas and seaborne. The ship focuses on food. Our recent cruise was loaded with elderly very large folks. These folks cannot board buses or walk very well. They hobble down the halls clogging up the isles. Also because of the limited physical abilities of the passengers the off ship excursions are geared to large inanimate viewing. This ship is in need of either a serious cleaning or time to refurbish. The carpet in our suite was dreadfully stained and worn. The crew from the maids ,butlers, waitstaff all top shelf very helpful. Probably the happiest crew we have experienced. The entertainment is very mediocre. Food, as stated earlier ,was very good. Not a pretty site for these very large men and women laying by the pool ,women in 2 piece bikinis men small briefs. There were many Russians and Eastern Europeans on board. I would travel again but would await the remodeling of the ship. The value of oceania is there.

Time for remodel

Cabin Review

Penthouse Suite
Cabin PH2 10019
As stated above the carpet is in dire need of cleaning at minimum but should be replaced. The bathroom sink was cracked. The bathroom mirror was separated from its frame. Very dangerous sharp edges
Deck 11 Balcony Cabins, Suite Cabins
