Details on some deficiencies in an otherwise excellent cruise

The cruise was generally excellent mainly because of the the variety of food, the service, the gym and running track, and the itinerary. I will not go into detail on those factors because you can read about them in ...

Overall a great ship

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary and the amenities. The passenger age definitely skews to the over 60 crowd. The food was among the best we have ever had on a cruise ship. The specialty ...

Wonderful cruise, but for a luxury line it leaves things a bit lacking

On the whole, the cruise was very very good and the itinerary (which I credit Oceania with putting together) was excellent. However, for a line and ship that bill themselves as a luxury line, I just don't think they ...
