Brilliant first cruise

First timers and we had a blast! The cabin was so spacious and we had no problem putting all our stuff away and suitcases fitted under the bed no problem. The ship is impeccably clean and the restaurants are too. ...

Monte Carlo to Rome

The ship was the main reason as we have been on the Riviera before & the standards were excellent as usual. The itinerary also gave us a cruise visiting a couple of new ports that we haven’t visited, some good ...

Wonderful Experience!

For our first cruise, Oceania was a good choice. Embarkation was well organized and while there was a wait for our rooms, we were provided with a welcome lunch and later relaxed by the pool. Our room was ready by ...

After nine Celebrity cruises on four different ships, my husband and I took advantage of an amazing discount to “upgrade” to Oceania on an itinerary we liked. We arrived in Nice the morning before the cruise ...

Pleasing even the most discerning client, like me!

Let's start with the boat. Elegant and tasteful with contemporary artwork throughout, I found nothing lacking in design and certainly, not the "glitzy" look! We did end up getting a suite (penthouse, I believe) so ...

Very good. Too many young children.

Food is still great and the strong suit of Oceania. Service was overall-great, however, the destination services people need to be reminded that cruisers paid premium prices to go on excursions and should be treated ...

Love the ship, but choose itinerary & excursions carefully.

We chose the cruise, as we always do, because of the itinerary and because we love Oceania's larger ships with the 4 specialty restaurants and larger bathrooms. Oceania included 6 free excursions and though we have ...
