Sail Date: Aug 2019
Cabin: Deluxe Ocean View

We booked this cruise as a less expensive alternative to flying down and staying a few nights in a $1200 a night room in one of the resorts down in Bermuda. The itinerary was perfect-- 2.5 days in St George and a day and a half in Hamilton and well away from the large ships in the Dockyard. A well positioning floating hotel near all the things we like to go and do on the island. It was our first time on Oceania-- we have cruise a bunch and have run the gamut but our more recent experiences have mostly been on Seabourn.

Impression: The ship was coming off a refurbishment and the overall impression was that it was tastefully done-- keeping the clubby atmosphere from before but updating it a bit to be a little more modern. It was on par decor wise with a newer Ritz Carlton. Everything seemed quite new and the ship itself appeared to be a very good condition-- literally the only maintenance fault I could find was the little muster station frame on the back of our cabin door was slightly damaged.

Cabin: We opted not to get a verandah on this drip due to the large amount of time we planned to spend ashore. As many have mentioned, the bathrooms on this class of ship are notoriously small. The shower doors are quite clever in that they open in or out to give you more working space in the bathroom but the bottom line is that you are showering in what amounts to a small telephone booth. Refurbishment of the rest of the cabin was top notch-- tons of storage space for its size. The bed was also one of the most comfortable we've had on a ship. The cabin was quite small though and I think in hindsight I would have booked a larger one had I known (even though the verandah wasn't a big selling point). Ours was also forward on the ship and the first night out we had rough seas-- it was the first time I've ever gotten seasick. I would have picked one much more amidships looking back.
