Excellent deal . We were going on Oceana from Dubai but it was cancelled. Never been on Oceana before. Out of part of winter. Weather perfect . Very good captain. Lovely older ship . Cosy balcony cabins.lovely food. Only gripe was entertainment. Hardly any good shows .(probably had to be cobbled together for 35 nights). Great service. We had great service in the restaurant and food was of a high standard. The beach house was as good as ever and we did manage to have one of the meals there, on deck during the tropical night. My cabin steward in c619 was excellent and nothing was too much trouble. However, the cafe jardin was cold unwelcoming and food was not good and maybe better turning into a sindu with better food and service. It is in a very good location overlooking the atrium I think it would be good to have the Oceana as an adult only ship as the bars are quite sophisticated and the champagne bar is too small to be adult only. Very happy and clean well run ship .
