Almost, just almost, as nice as Riviera (12/2021), though we didn't get to St. Kitts (sick passenger emergency, yet again!)

Review for Sirena to Caribbean - Eastern

Wish I could give this a 4.5 rating overall. We chose this cruise to experience a good variety of the E. Caribbean. Sadly, our first scheduled stop, St. Kitts, was cancelled because we had to drop off a sick passenger in Puerto Plata (Dominican Republic) on the 2nd sea day. Used up about 4 hours trying to use our lifeboat to take him/her to shore. Apparently, the captain didn't want to try to make ...

Outstanding experience on refurbished NAUTICA

Just completed Barcelona to Abu Dhabi - 20 days on the refurbished Nautica. The refurb is outstanding! Better food in the Grand Dining Room. Portions are much better/lighter. Speciality venues are excellent. Butler was Superb! Excursions were very good and the overnight in Luxor was outstanding. I am baffled by the other reviews in that this was one of the best cruises we have ...

Fascinating Barcelona to Abu Dhabi Itinerary

Background We mostly cruise with Viking, Tauck, and with others, but three years ago we saw this itinerary and we couldn't wait - and then we waited three years. We are also introverts, so there are things Oceania offers that are simply not relevant to us - the bar scene, the entertainment, the casino, the sea day activities. We spend a little more for a larger room where we can happily hang ...

After cruising 60+ times on various lines, we decided to see what all the Oceania fuss was about. We sailed in October-November 2022 from Papeete, Tahiti to Singapore for a total of 30 days. Rather than Go into every tiny detail, I’ll hit the highlights and some of the not-so-great things about our month-long South Pacific cruise. Pros: above all, the service. From the first morning onboard ...

Chose because it was easy to get to embarkation port and part of the world we had not been to. Staff were at times too over attentive but mainly great. Appreciated some remembering our names and their friendliness. Otherwise mostly as expected. However advertised amenities were not offered, eg no fitness instructor on board. Some dance lessons were offered but lasted only 20 minutes. Poorly ...

We chose this trip mainly for the Israel focus and spent three days there. The excursions are always expensive and in Israel the guides were useless, which was frustrating. Also there were no port talks; odd; though most people now have to book before they get on board. Booking was sometimes complicated pre-cruise. The ship is a size we like 1200 pax and it has all the usual stuff. We like ...

A good cruise, but nor without some flaws

We picked the cruise for the itinerary. We were able to get Greece, Israel, and Turkey on one trip with the bonus of starting in Barcelona. We were originally booked into standard balcony class on deck eight. We were offered a modestly priced upgrade to concierge class on deck ten and decided to try it. We spent three days in Barcelona (our second time there). The highlight was a food and wine ...

We chose this cruise because it was a smaller ship ( 680 guests) and because it was Oceania - a higher end line. We have sailed on Carnival (1x) Holland America (1x) Royal Caribbean (2x) Celebrity (2x) previously. We booked 2 years prior to sailing and we were looking forward to it as we hadn’t travelled due to COVID. The ship was small and because of that, (we had a balcony cabin )the ...

We chose this cruise line and itinerary due to reputation of cuisine, enrichment, upscale service & appointments. Oceania's marketing is stellar and we believed that this sailing would be heads above Celebrity, Princess and similar 5.0 or 5.5 ships. Sadly, we were mistaken. First two fine dining experiences were disappointing with inedible food, cold entrees, curious offerings like a potato ...

We took our first cruise on the Nautica in 2018, and found it to be an elegant and pleasant way to travel. We were looking forward to taking another cruise, but our carefully thought-out plans were delayed for several years, along with everyone else in the world. After several wonderful days at our embarkation port, Lisbon, we were excited to be back on board a ship. Although the Riviera ...
