We are very impressed with the care and concern Oceania shows its passengers regarding health regulations. No one on the ship contracted Covid-19. Five certified testers from Eurofins traveled with the ship and tested guests and crew at every port.
The service by cabin stewards and waitstaff is always incomparable. The ports are generally interesting. The line maintains a library, which has been eliminated in favor of casinos on other ships. The passengers tend to be well-traveled and outgoing. Oceania caters to adults, so small children are not a problem. Families with teenagers traveled together for experiences rather than on-board children's groups.
The line prides itself on its cuisine, which is gourmet quality. There are four specialty restaurants that can be booked pre-boarding as well as with a concierge for nightly dining. The Grand Dining Room has delicious menus catering to a variety of tastes: meat, fish, vegetarian. Portions are enormous, so my husband and I usually split an entree if we wanted the same dish.
