This was the 38th cruise for my wife and I; we are both retired Seniors living in S. Florida.
We booked with a local agent of long standing and our transportation to the Port of Miami was via private car, a family member.
We arrived at the terminal (conveniently located; Oceania's berth and embarkation slots are the very first as you enter the port, just after Noon and were on the ship and at our (Inside, number 8014) cabin easily before 1:00PM. Check in (done online before boarding) was quick, easy and courteously and professionally handled. We had been told that the cabin(s) would not be ready this early,so we quickly visited ours to see if we could drop our carryons before heading to the Terrace Cafe (the buffet) for lunch.
Good storage. Great bedside lighting. Small but serviceable shower. Good storage in bathroom. Some noise at times from pool deck above, cabin is Deck 8 forward.
Would try an upgrade next time over this inside.
