My husband and I chose this 25 day cruise because we wanted to try a high-end cruise. Loved it. Oceania is the perfect line for us because there are no rules, no photographers, no up-selling of terrible art, no gala events. Dining: you can sit where you want and eat when you want. The staff were fun-loving, over-the-top competent, sophisticated and professional. Our cabin was elegant. The food was amazing...grilled-to-order lobster tails and rib eyes throughout the 25 day cruise. Did I mention desserts? In the early portion of the cruise I was complimenting the chef on the lemon meringue tarts (exquisite). I asked for the recipe. The night before disembarkation the recipe shows up at our door. Now that's impressive!! We are not heavy drinkers and prefer to book our own small-group excursions. Oceania is perfect because we found that other high-end cruise lines that are all-inclusive so we would be paying for more than we need. Not taking a cruise for the entertainment on board so not really disappointed with the lame entertainment. What I really appreciated was the quality of the other passengers from other countries: so interesting and sophisticated; the hands-on cooking classes on the Marina with the curriculum developed by the Culinary Institute of America (right down the road from our home), and the interesting itinerary: 5 ports on the western coast of France, for example, where we rented bicycles and took the coastal road in several ports. What fun! Especially when we happened upon an outdoor beach bar. Another highlight: we spent 4 hours on our own at the Guggenheim in Bilbao. Highly recommend. I love to cook so the hands-on cooking classes surpassed my expectations. You're at your cooking station, granite countertop with your cooking partner, slicing and dicing, gazing out a wall of windows with the ocean breezing by, with some lovely background music playing, and drinking wine. Ecstasy! My husband took the grilling class. I enrolled in fresh pasta and the crepes class. I learned a lot and walked away with some awesome recipes. The four specialty restaurants were very good, and so was the food on all other areas of the ship. Another aspect that I appreciated on this line: their laser-focussed emphasis on cleanliness. The food was always served by staff, no reaching in and touching any of the food by passengers. Hand sanitizers everywhere. The spa was also very good. Our cabin was great, 7053 because it was near the elevator/stairs with residential overhead so it was very quiet, very stable. We wish we had unlimited laundry service but the truth is we used the launderette on our floor with washers/dryers/iron and it was very convenient. Read Less

Travel agent recommended and literature posted to our home looked good so we booked the cruise $26,000 AUD ....TOTAL RIP-OFF Food constantly served tepid and unappetising. Constantly returning food as not acceptable Bed mattress was burst and I had to sleep on the small double seater until they finally replaced it (approx 12-14 days) Argumentative security personnel, they issued new keycards halfway through the cruise , we got them AFTER we had left for the day. They were placed in our room.... Food in most meal areas dried out under heat lamps. I wouldn’t recommend this cruise to my worst enemy Ended up eating off the ship ( at addition expense) to be sure of HOT food. We want the only ones very disappointing with the food, many others expressed their concerns Wrote to the company but got the usual corporate fob off and a pathetic offer of $300 AUD credit to another cruise. To,d them, politely to “shove it” Will never go with them again..... Read Less

We were on Deck 3 with an ocean view on the starboard side of the ship. On Deck 3 all the cabins are ocean view on the starboard size. There are no cabins on Deck 3 port side. There is only one stairway and two elevators serving the starboard side. There are emergency exit forward and aft on Deck 3. The Internet connection and speed were okay for a ship. There are two 110 volts and two 220 volts electrical outlets on the desk in the room. There are two end tables with one electrical outlet 220 volts on the wall above the end tables. The entertainment was very goods. The meals in the main dining room, specialty dining and the Wave were very good. We did not stop at Saint John and Bar Harbor because of bad weather. Portland, Maine was added in lieu of Bar Harbor. The seas were a little rough after leaving the St. Lawrence into the Atlantic Ocean. Read Less

It was our 9th sailing, which we have mostly done on the the larger ships--Marina and Riviera. Its been 3 years since we sailed on a small O ship. We were delightfully surprised at how lovely the smaller ship was. Immaculate even though we were told it was going into dry dock next year. Everything was up to O standards and I didn't miss the fact that there were only 2 vs 4 restaurants. All was great. We are sailing on the Regatta next year for 30 days and looking forward to that trip too. We were concerned that the PH suite was much smaller than the larger ships. It was, but it was still perfect and plenty of storage room. We had issue with mold in the tub. Next day, cut out and totally refreshed and beautiful. Service impeccable. Our butler was probably one of the best we have had and only 3 years on ship. Looking forward to our next three four cruises on O in the next year! Read Less
