For us it was a good time to travel in this region. We expected a nice quiet room on the stern of the ship in between the owners staterooms on deck 7. However the vibration of the propellorshaft or engine are realy bad. It disturbs your sleep. Your bed and room are shaking enormes. We did not have this problem before on the Insignia. And the explanation of the concierge sofar is that we are on a old ship.. We are halve way the cruise and hope to get a better explanation the coming days on the vibration. Anyway the rest is what you may expect from Oceania: good service, expensive excursions. Make sure you have everything in writing on your final confirmation so you have a good start when you embark. We enjoy traveling with Oceania although we get the impression that entertainment on the ship that does the 180 days is better.
