Cabin: Inside

Expected a luxury cruise but overall disappointing.No port lectures. Buffet lacked a decent salad bar. Embarkation very challenging for older adults. Very little information on ports too late to really enjoyvisited. Local maps available only after arriving in port. Food in dining room hit or miss.Specialty restaurants disappointing and staff pretentious.Cast shows mediocre. Several excellent guest entertainers. We left the ship early for medical reasons and disembarkation very difficult. Cabin temperature unacceptable for comfortable sleep. Unlikely to choose Oceania again even though we cruise 8-9 months a year. Would have preferred two shows in evening.9:30 too late to really enjoy.We were given an incorrect address for the port which caused us much anxiety. When we finally reached the ship we had to board via a steep gangway which was very difficult to navigate for older individuals. We then stood for an additional 30-40 minutes to register.Overall poor planning for an elder crowd

Quite small. Air conditioning a constant problem which was never rectified. Not enough storage
