Sail Date: Mar 2022

This is the first negative review I have ever posted on this site.

Our cruise on the Oceania Marina from Miami first week in March 2022 was as rough sea for 3 days on our way to Curacao and coming back to Miami. I discussed this with some employees on the ship. They were told that because there were only less than 400 passengers(normal 1,200 passengers), they did not use the Stabilizers because of increase fuel cost. It's not my fault that only 399 passengers were on the ship. Why should I after all the funds I paid, be subject to their cost savings. I have sailed many time in the Caribbean and never had this rough seas. Service was outstanding. We have cruise with Oceania Rivieria ship and this was our 2nd cruise on the Marina. We booked a suite with a butler. Oceania is know for the service and cuisine. I rate the service from 1 to 10, an 11. I rated the food from 1 to 10 a 4. With the experience we have had in the past, we book another cruise with Oceania Apex in 2023. We have since cancelled after this experience.
