Despite Oceania claiming to be the best food at sea, sadly it is not. Lukewarm food on cold plates spoils the finest of cuisines. Like all cruise lines, the ship is spotless, the service is good and almost all crew very pleasant. Officers are conspicuous by their absence and safety does not seem to be their primary concern. An issue with mobility scooters was most poorly handled when lack of adherence to safety protocols was not observed. Entertainment was average, no port talks, guest lecturer selling her own product and the lack of a naturalist in Alaska disappointing. The other lecturer was poor, boring and his slide material unreadable on the screens. His information was poorly delivered and many people fell asleep. No craft or painting classes. Just kits handed out by one of the singers. It’s is a beautiful ship but the state rooms and bathrooms are not conversant with a supposedly luxury line. The ship has a vibration that these class R ships all have. It made me feel nauseous. We have been on 4 of the 8 and they are all the same. No refund of port fees were made for not staying over in San Francisco. Cruise director Carson was excellent and put on a wonderful show. Polo food and Grill service and food was awful. The Italian was better. The buffet although small offered the best food on the ship.
