Oceania Marina

Sail Date: February 2011
Destination: Panama Canal & Central America
Embarkation: San Francisco
First off - it is a beautiful boat - the public areas are gorgeous - as usual the cabin staff and wait staff are exceptional.

The food is amazing, - even though we are not foodies. The four special restaurants are top class - we enjoyed the main dining room which is a lovely room - big and light and airy. We enjoyed the dining in the terrace - especially outside. The waitstaff there are so nice and really take care of you.

The cabins are very comfortable - the bathrooms are much bigger than in the R boats, have a bath tub - which didn't do anything for us - we didn't use it. The shower seemed to be about the same size as on the R boats (small).

Usual Oceania issues - Internet and excursions ridiculously expensive! Entertainment limited (difficult to bring in really good entertainers with only 1200 people paying the freight.) Senior staff somewhat "aloof"

Getting off in Miami was a nightmare - we were held "hostage" for about an hour - no idea why - More no proper explanation. Oceania really upset their clients - especially us - we missed our flight back to California and had to standby all day to finally get out at 8pm - getting home about 1.30am!

Overall the cruise was great - pity about the end - we left the ship mad!

Cabin review: A19077 Concierge Level

Small shower, but has a tub. Marble in the bathroom very nice - drawers too short under the mirror (needs fixing) Sliding doors cheap and nasty,. TV will not rotate to allow viewing in bed because of the plug which is in the outlet on the bottom right side of the back of the TV - sticks out 3-4 inches!!!
