This ship was a perfect size for us. The food was excellent. Polo Grill very good and Toscana great. I also really enjoyed the meals in the Grand Dining room. Wine can get expensive but Happy Hour is 2 for 1. Brought our wine to the dining room. Great entertainment. John's magic show during happy hour was the best. The speakers were outstanding. Enjoyed Black Jack tournaments. Some couples really wanted to play Poker but not enough players. I can't say enough about the staff. Very helpful and kind. The best. Julio at the concierge desk was so helpful with all. I mostly booked my own excursions. Love the Orkney Islands. Our favorite stop. Did a walking tour in Londonderry and that was on the spot 4 GBP so great value. Being able to get a special coffee anytime, an ice cream etc. was great. Service at the dining room was very efficient. Loved showing up and being seated so quickly. The buffet was good but often crowded as the weather did not lend itself to dining outdoors so they brought those seats in. Prefer the dining room and personalize service.

Really liked our stateroom. Perfect location and good size. Yes the bathroom is small. A little tired.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

Booked with International friends. Picked us up at the end of the cruise and had a full day tour that ended up in them dropping us off at our London Hotel. Beyond excellent. Loved it and well priced. Same price as Oceania's transfer to the airport and lunch was provided.

Did a private walking tour and it was excellent. The guide name was Jane Cook and She was excellent. I can't remember how I booked but it's a service and a few people contacted me and Jane was the first. She made it very interesting for us. Loved this place. It helped that the weather was warm and blue skies.


Did a ship excursion and it was excellent. Did a lot of walking about after. All these place were easy to walk around.


Did the hop on hop off. We went into town and did not realize the bus is available right from the pier.

Titanic museum, city hall, lunch at 5 star hotel then city tour. Great day

It was walking tour that included St. Steven's cathedral and then the city. 4.5 hours. Just a bit long but a lot of good information.
