I have been on 2 previous Oceania cruises and chose this one because it left from San Francisco to many ports I hadn't visited and through the Panama Canal. Unfortunately, we changed itinerary for 8 days due to a tropical storm and missed 5 excursions. Communication from Captain or cruise director was terrible. No explanation for any thing. Morale among the passengers was very poor. I'm sure they lost some loyal customers (including my husband and myself)
The food in Grand Dining Room and The Terrace is still very good, but a step down from what we experienced on previous sailings. Toscana and Polo Grill are still wonderful. Service staff in general were lovely, but some were poorly trained with snafus on drink orders and restaurant reservations which seemed to disappear even though we had the print out summary of our reservations from the front desk. There was no explanation, no apology and we were supposed to feel grateful that they managed to "fit us in."
There were power outages and some ship sections experienced non- flushing toilets at times.
The ship is due for an overhaul and we got the impression it had many ongoing mechanical issues. But none of this was address by the staff.
Our cabin was quite nice and kept very clean by housekeeping staff.
There was good entertainment and plenty of activities like Trivia, golf putting, shuffleboard, ping pong, Bridge lessons and games, casino w slots and poker tournaments, karaoke. But we went for the port visits and excursions, not endless sea days.
roomy with plenty of storage
Never got there
Great place to visit any time of year.

We had 1.5 hours of daylight so it was not worth doing a scenic tour since most of it would be in the dark. No explanation why we arrived so many hours late.
Had the aerial ride but also visited and animal center with sloths, anteaters, frogs, butterflies.View All 14 Rainforest Aerial Tram Tour Reviews
Interesting tour in occasional downpours. We didn't get soaked because our guide was willing to wait until the rain lessened to move on, but some others did and some tours were cut short unnecessarily. one woman fell and had a badly bruised eye and hip because the water was over the curb and she couldn't see the step.View All 367 City Tour Reviews
Decent walking tour but some confusion towards the end. 45 minutes scheduled for shopping which some people did not want to do but they also didn't want to walk back to the ship. I don't know how that was resolved since we had always planned to skip shopping and walk back.View All 76 Historical City Center Reviews
