Additional details

Sail Date: Apr 2019
Cabin: Verandah Stateroom

We chose this cruise for a chance to try Oceania, who has a great reputation, especially for foodies. We had cruised on Celebrity several times, a mainstream line known for good dining, and Princess to Alaska.

Oceania seems to really have honed in on their target audience, with many travelers we met haven taken 10+ cruises with the line and some even 20+ (and many Oceania cruises are more than two weeks). My wife and I are in our early 70s and most of the passengers seemed a bit older than we were. Many were from England, Australia, etc and most were very well traveled. In general, they were a friendly bunch

The ship is pretty in a subdued sort of way, mostly decorated in a traditional way. We preferred Celebrity’s more contemporary looks, but it certainly was nice and easy to navigate. The public rooms are showing a bit of wear and tear, however, although nothing dramatic.

Cabin Review

Verandah Stateroom

Cabin B2

Clean , comfy bed, both tub and small shower. Has extra large balcony, which we were unable to use because of bad weather, but is near the stern of the ship and was very rocky during rough seas (which were frequent). Would not choose this cabin again, which was strongly recommended by Oceania rep) if any chance of rough seas, especially in the Atlantic
