We booked this cruise almost 2 years ago. We liked the itinerary very much, particularly the 2 days in Bordeaux and several other ports in France. We also saw that this would be a special culinary cruise with ...

Fjords Fjords and Nobel Museum

The Marina is a wonderful ship with exemplary service and dining geared toward adult travelers. We spent four pre-cruise days in Amsterdam and a week post-cruise in London. Be sure to make your own arrangements from ...

Marina Castles and Cathedrals

Our second journey on Marina in three years. This one 12 days vs 26 days on earlier cruise. This itinerary was very port intensive with no at sea days. For a 12 day cruise it was very manageable. We missed one port ...

Wonderful experience, but . . .

Oceania fouled up their shore operations again. Shuttles into Bilbao from ship around lunchtime were on a 40 minute to one hour schedule. We left our stateroom with sufficient time to debark, walk to the terminal ...

Especially Bruges, Guernsey, Bordeaux, Ferrol and Lisbon were very nice. Bruges is fabulous. Had a good lunch ashore with a special local beer 'Straffe Hendrik': delicious! In Ferrol I discovered a very good white ...

The ship is well cared for - looks perfect in fact. Loved the room but would change out the useless tubs in exchange for a double sink. We appreciated the delicious food in all specialty restarants and the ...

It's the little things that make or break a cruise.

We booked our trip through a travel agent who strongly advised cruising on one of Oceania's new ships. Thankfully, they made advanced reservations in the restaurants. Our meal at Ginger ended with us walking out of ...

Excellent ship, but poor excursions reduced the value of the cruise.

We are a retired couple that took the cruise for the 20 port visits, with the expectation that we would see and enjoy many new places. The ship itself was excellent. Embarkation was easy and the veranda stateroom ...

We had food and service issues from day 1. Chipped glassware, and a string or hair in my dessert, in the main dining room. Raw hamburgers at the grill for lunch, not once, but twice. Nothing was ever served hot, ...

Do not accidentally leave items behind at the end of your cruise.

We have cruised with Oceania seven times so that speaks for itself how we regarded this cruise line. After visiting the Van Gogh museum and generally walking around Amsterdam we commenced our 23 days on Marina ...

We wanted to see the Baltic and were not disappointed. We prefer the relaxed pace of river cruising, also because of the relative ease of getting into port, and the lack of sea days. This trip was as close to that ...
