My spouse and I are experienced cruisers. On this voyage we sailed from Lima,Peru to NYC via the Panama Canal. The trip was adversely impacted by an outbreak of gastrointestinal illness(probably Norovirus) which can't be blamed on Oceana. However, their response was a disaster. Numerous activities were curtailed or canceled, and venues closed,even those unrelated to food or bathroom services, ...

It all starts from the very beginning embarkation in Lima; Since Oceania did not informed us that the embarkation in Lima would be very different than one would expect we did experienced a nightmare; Both our faces and décolleté where sunburned because ( just coming from the airport ) we have to stand in the burning sun for more then 2 hours in line before we could embark a touringcar which ...

The itinerary was outstanding: Lima -> Pisco->Easter Island->Pitcairn -> South Pacific Islands but the cruise started out poorly. Oceania scheduled our air trip using LAN. LAN lost our luggage and because of the itinerary it was day 7 before clothes arrived! Embarkation was from a shipping port not a people port and cruisers were left standing in the sun for over an hour without word from Oceania ...

I have been very fortunate to have travelled extensively my whole life, and I have been on many cruises. I just finished the Oceania cruise - Eternal Enchantment (16 Jan - 3 Feb 2018) and the pre-cruise tour - Machu Picchu (13-16 Jan 2018). This was the most expensive cruise (about $28,000 CAD) we (myself and my spouse) have been on, and it was also the least enjoyable cruise we have been on. ...

Cruise Lima to Papette with Marina First checkin procedure in Callao We were dropped off by taxi and there was already a row of a few hundred people. It certainly took almost 2 hours before we were at a bus. We had to put our suitcases ourselves in the storage space of the bus and board ourselves. No employee of Oceania is present. We had been standing in the hot sun for a long time and ...

This was our third cruise with Oceania (all on the Marina) and around 18th overall, and the first where I've felt the need to write a review on this site. Embarkation: Not a great start. In Lima we waited an hour in line in the afternoon sun and heat at the entrance to the port to get on a bus to the ship. The only Oceania presence was a small canopy with the logo on it where you finally ...

I have to agree all that has been said regards the lack of communication on this ship during the gastric virus outbreak, Marina is a beautiful ship.The food very good and the staff we saw,work very hard and are a benefit to the company. But,we could not understand how the captain allowed some aspects of the ship open.Why could we not put dollars in the laundry machines,yet we could put ...

Chose this cruise for itinerary. That was the only good thing. Embarkation in Lima was disgraceful. We arrived at port in taxi dropped off outside the port to be faced with a very large queue no shelter from the blistering heat, no staff present. We were then transferred to the ship by bus to be met with an even longer queue, waiting to embark,we even had to unload our own cases from the bus, no ...

We have been cruising on Seabourn for years and love it. We decided to give Oceania a chance because we liked this itinerary. It was not a good experience. Starting with embarkation which was done at Callao Lima Peru. This port has absolutely no cruise terminal facilities at all. Passengers lined up on the dock without anyone from Oceania to greet us, direct us or answer questions. Some ...
