I always cruise at the holidays at least the 10th time w/Oceania at this holiday sailing - they cook, clean and sing. What's not to like? Oh yeah,

1. scooters: I've never seen such a 'disabled' bunch of people. Research indicated U.S. ADA rules must be followed and ANYONE can use a scooter on board. The scooters blocked doorways to all venues such as restaurants, library, theater, etc. They were left haphazardly in the hallways and everywhere on ship. put the scooters in the cabins....if there is an emergency, I need to get out. They are a SAFETY hazard for everyone. A parking area for scooters is needed. (amazingly the scooter people are able to navigate a buffet on foot!)

And......the scooter drivers yell at you to 'get out of their way'...wow

2. "Service/therapy" animals......they barked and bothered other cabins, they growled in the theater and were fed filet mignon.....no kibble for them.

Something has got to give....I used to think the kids were the problem...haha

The service and food were very good. The entertainment was mediocre at best (as usual), the decorations this year were very good.

Oceania doesn't know who they are going to get for a group ....this year was the least friendly and most rude bunch of people ever.
