Save your Money!!

Sail Date: October 2011
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Embarkation: Barcelona
This cruise line is touted as an upscale cruiseline. We have been on Sea Dream so we know what that means. I would place this cruise one level above Carnival. The food was very mediocre. Had to send it back the first night in the dining room. After the second night in the dining room, we gave up and only ate in the buffet restaurant where the food was actually better than in all the other restaurants, including the ones you had to make special reservations for.

The staff seemed untrained. They tried hard, but did not have their act together. The room was really small even though we were on the Concierge level. Don't really see the benefit of paying extra to be there!

Fortunately, we got off every day. The excursions were great, but when we got back on the ship, nothing but aggravation. No nightlife to speak of. Fortunately, had jet lag most of the time.

Would not recommend you spend this much money for this cruise line.

Have cruised with Royal More Carribean and they are heads and tails above this line. We could have gone all out on Royal Carribean and still only have spent half of what we did with Oceana and had a much better time!

Cabin review: JA7015 Balcony Stateroom with Shower

Really small bathroom. Shower the width of my shoulders. My husband (6'5") had to shower in the gym every day. Did not fit. Bed comfortable. Room 7015
