Sirena Cruise Review by Graeme Rogers

  • Sail Date: Oct 2018
  • Destination: Cuba
  • Cabin Type: Concierge Level Veranda Stateroom

We selected Sirena and Oceania because the schedule was good for us and the itinerary just what we wanted.

Sirena is a smaller cruise ship than previously booked and we wanted to see if size and quality of ship, as advertised, were true.

Sirena did not disappoint on either account.

With only some 680 passengers the ship was well proportioned for this capacity and certainly there was never an issue with numbers or access to restaurants or facilities.

We booked a Concierge Stateroom which was certainly big enough for us although the ensuite was compact,

This is an older ship that doesn’t show its age yet has all the features of a stately ship.

The ship was immaculately clean and the internal passageways and staircases were equally fastidiously maintained.

Ship’s staff were excellent, attentive and ever-present to meet your every need.

Food standards were exceptional!

Day to day organisation was discrete-with brief rundown of events/activities broadcast once and then you went and did your thing.

Everything was included in the cost except alcohol and shore excursions.

There was no hassle Re photos or any other big ship pressures eg art sales etc.

Perhaps the only - and often mentioned criticism- was the cost of shore tours. They were very expensive. We did our own research and booked tours independently ourselves.

We selected the OLife option when booking to cover off internet and gratuities.

All in all a very well presented ship with outstanding staff and exquisite food.

Cabin Review

Concierge Level Veranda Stateroom
Cabin A1 7046

Smaller than comparable staterooms on larger ships but certainly adequate.

Lots of storage space and very very comfortable beds.


Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

Cienfuegos

A contrast to Havana but still under developed and needing serious re-building.

Within easy walking distance from the cruise terminal.

City Tour

A local tour of the township and then a drive to the outlying areas.

Atlantis Resort

Worth a look but too touristy and surreal when compared with Nassau proper and surrounds.

Island Tour

A very interesting and fun tour of local Nassau sights.

Certainly not boring!,
