We have traveled on Oceania before and loved it....and we still do! Everything about the crew, service, ship, etc was great, but the food left a bit to be desired. Certainly not bad, but not the finest. It was our only disappointment. Our Butler was incredibly attentive to our every need and the bartenders were great. We didn’t do any of the ship excursions cause we were fortunate to find wonderful friends and groups via cruise critic. We thought the entertainment was excellent— I don’t think one should expect a broadway show level of entertainment, cause you’re not going to find it on a small ship. For the size of ship we were very pleased. You find a lovely group of travelers of the socio economic level one would expect at this price point.

Not the finest cuisine at sea

Cabin Review

Penthouse Suite
Cabin PH1
Cabin had lots of space and great closet and storage area. Even though we both brought twice as much as we needed, there was still cabinet and drawers we didn’t use.

The butler service was outstanding! Possible it was our wonderful Butler Aariff, but I’m guessing most are excellent.
