Sail Date: Feb 2023
Cabin: Verandah Stateroom

Being able to visit Antarctica and experience the adventure from the comfort of a luxury ship was fantastic. NCLH (Oceania's parent company) spent years developing this program and assembled a world-class team to interpret what we were seeing so we got the most out of our time there. They offered excellent programs every day and were available for one-on-one conversations throughout the voyage.

I had no intention of writing a review, but after reading several very negative reviews, I felt compelled to do so. I find it hard to believe we were on the same ship!

First of all, this sailing was at full capacity, but probably without a full crew, just as the world is operating short-staffed at this time. This means that every one on board was working very hard, and I am a little forgiving if the service isn't perfect. Also, there was a 100% turnover of guests at Santiago which means a lot of people to disembark and a lot of people to embark (no back-to-back guests). This lead to a very chaotic boarding process, and yes, it could have been done better.

Cabin Review

Verandah Stateroom

Our TA picked this midship cabin in case our two crossings of Drakes Passage lived up to its reputation. Thankfully, it was relatively calm in both directions.

The cabin was fine. No major problems at all.
