I am a veteran of cruising, and have been on Celebrity, Royal Caribbean, Viking and Carnival numerous times.
For the extra money paid for an Oceania cruise, I really expected more. I wanted the Panama Canal, full transit itinerary, and when we booked, Oceania was the only one going all the way through.
I must say, the crew and service was fantastic. Because the gratuity was included, I did not expect that, but they were wonderful!
Good bus tour with a good guide
