Oceania cruise from Sept. 16 to 28, 2014 exploring Maine, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, Quebec and Montreal was good. There were some items, listed below, which disappointed us: • Do not use Oceania Cruises for any cruises if you have bad legs, knees or lungs. Oceania does not know how to assist those passengers. Their place of disembarking on many of those stops involves steep gangways. • People/passengers do not wait for others who have problems walking fast. People who are slow are expected to keep up with everyone else. Few people are nice and accommodating. • Accommodations are not made for those who need extra time in getting off/on, walking up or down gangways to/from shore. People crowd those who are walking slowly and are impatient. • Quebec and Montreal tour buses do not have wooden steps to help those who need assistance to get off or on a bus whereby the first step is 12 to 18 inches above the ground. All other tour buses on the other stops had wooden steps with most of the buses lowering themselves to assist with that first step. Quebec and Montreal tour buses refused to lower their buses and to provide wooden steps. • Oceania cruise line on ‘Regatta’, a 694 passenger ship, does not believe a passenger who has a food allergy until three incidents occur in front of the ‘Grand Dining Room’ waiters and serving staff which shows the severity of the food allergy. Talking to the Maitre’D and head waiter does not help in understanding the severity. Overall assessment is that ‘Do not go on Oceania Cruises if you are not able to walk quickly and have any food allergies’. Thank you for your time.   Read Less
