Additional details

Sail Date: Oct 2018
Cabin: Concierge Level Veranda Stateroom

There are many reviews of this poor cruise already posted.

I support the information and analysis and conclusions reached by the reviewers as well as information and analysis in the current thread on the current Oceania board.

While new to CC (thanks to my TA), I am not new to cruising across many brands.

Cabin Review

Concierge Level Veranda Stateroom

Cabin A1

The cabin and bathroom size are a joke for any cruise line these days let alone a so called premium cruise line.

The ship is 20+ years and everything needs replacement which I understand is planned.

Port Reviews

San Francisco

Been to SF many times before but can not believe how dumpy the city has become.

Will not return.

Catalina Island (California)

This island is a faded glory. Not much to do. Did rent a golf cart and drove the loop.

This port could have been cancelled to allow the ship to fast track to Cabo ahead of weather.

Cabo San Lucas

Cancelled by Oceania for no apparent reason.


Cancelled by Oceania for no apparent reason.



Puntarenas (Puerto Caldera)

Did not get off the ship. It was getting dusk by the time we arrived and were able to get off. Other reviewers have posted about the 2 hastily organized tours had the last hour in the dark.

Another Oceania fail.

Cartagena (Colombia)

This city has a building boom since I was last there, but the pan handling was terrible, as to be expected for this part of the world.

Took a cab from the ship to the historical area and a cab back.
