Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Nov 2018
  • Destination: Trans-Ocean
  • Cabin Type: Deluxe Ocean View

We chose this cruise primarily because of the itinerary and it did not disappoint. We made all our own tour arrangements at each port so I can not comment on the ships tours. Our room was fantastic and the service bar none. We found all the amenities great. We especially liked the Terrace Cafe just because of its variety of selection and casual atmosphere. We did enjoy Toscanas food as well, but did find the Polo fell short of our expectations. The entertainment in the evening was energetic and we were so impressed with the takent of the young enetertainers on the ship. The enrichment lectures were really informative and we tried not to miss any of them. We enjoyed the small ship atmosphere and the friendly staff. Our housekeeping staff went above and beyond any requests we had. The embarkation and disembarkation went smoothly and we were quick to get off and on the boat to meet up with our tour groups. We will definitely use Oceania again. Thanks for a wonderful experience.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Ocean View
Cabin C1 4026

We loved the fourth floor cabins. The window was lovely and the extra little space in the window ledge was well used. Not sure if we were C1 or C2.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

Rhodes Old Town

Informative, easy walking tour. Enjoyed our time in Rhodes. Such a great stop.

Rented a car ahead of our arrival. Easy, and perfect. It was raining so that helped!


Again, rented a car through Enterprise and they picked us up at the port. Saw most of the stops we were interested in and enjoyed the day.

Haifa (Tel Aviv)

We contacted Guided Tours Israel and had a great experience. This taste of Israel just wants us to return.


We used Egypt Tours Portal for the two days we were here to see The Valley of the Kings. Another great experience.

Aqaba (Petra)

We used Jordan Horizon Tours and can’t say enough about our experience in Petra. Wish we could have seen more but when you have only one day on shore you can’t see everything!


An interesting stop. Saw The Grand Mosque. Impressive.


Used Get your Guide and enjoyed another trip around Muscat...Grande Mosque, Gold Souk, Fish market, tour through the banana fields...they have an amazing beach.


Dubai and Abi Dhabi are amazing cities. I would recommend going to the Grand Mosque in Abi Dhabi...and we used ABC tours to do an amazing desert sunset tour and Bedouin tent experience. Very good.
