This was our first time cruising on the Oceania. We chose this cruise because it started in Papeete and ended in LA, so we only had one long distance flight. Overall, all transfers, flights, the ship, ports of call, food everything was perfect. The food was good and we enjoyed the specialty restaurants. We did five ship excursions. There was only one of those excursions that we were disappointed in. The tour director was not very good and took us to the caves in Bora Bora prior to 10:00 am so there were no lights in the cave (they come on at 10:00 am and the guide should have known that). My husband almost fell as we tried navigating using the light on our cell phone. The casino was empty most of the time so it wasn't really fun to be there. But obviously, that was the fault of the ship. We had a fabulous time on this cruise. We met wonderful people, enjoyed that part of the country which we had never seen, and enjoyed all the sea days.

Fabulous cruise

Cabin Review

Concierge Level
Cabin A1 10070
The only thing we were unhappy about on this trip was the cabin. We were disappointed not so much with the size of the cabin but the size of the closet and the shower in the bathroom. The closet had sliding doors and was next to the bed so any clothes that were in that far corner were difficult to reach. The bathroom, although fine in size, had the smallest shower I had ever seen. You had to shower like you were a cylinder. No arm movement, no bending, no movement allowed! On my next Oceania cruise, I would upgrade to the suite level to avoid this.
