Sail Date: Oct 2018
Cabin: Deluxe Ocean View

Primary reason for choosing this cruise was the ports of call. Unfortunately three of our ports of call were bypassed by Oceania; Carbo San Lucas Mexico, El Salvador and Nicaragua. Instead we spent 2 1/2-additional days at sea. It is like a cruise to no where. We have no idea why the ship was unable to arrive at Costa Rica on time. We arrived five hours late causing us to miss the eco excursion, which was most important for my wife and I. Since we had two and have extra days at sea, you would think we would have arrived on time in Costa Rica.

We arranged a meeting with the ships general manager. We received little sympathy. As a matter of fact we were threatened by the general manager not to have conversation with other passengers relative to our disappointment.We are in the process of filing a formal complaint with Oceania's senior management and parent company(Norwegian).

All in all the cruise was a big disappointment. The hostile atmosphere made us very anxious and apprehensive for 18 days.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Ocean View

The cabin was Clean and well-maintained while we were on board. However the carpeting in the cabin was worn and stained.
