This was a very average cruise and a real disappointment. WE have cruised many times before with Seabourn, Cunard and RCI, so were eagerly expecting an excellent cruise with Oceania. Not to be. Its a very nice ship and well kept. The ... Read more

Oceania's Marina has the best quality food of the 8 cruise lines we traveled on, but there are major problems in entertainment and excursion policies. We were booked in a Concierge cabin and dined 6 times in specialty restaurants. All ... Read more

It is important that everyone knows that the O'life promotion if you pick the free excursions they must be booked at least 14 days before sailing. Once on board you can not pick your excursions and will have to pay the full price of the ... Read more

W e chose this cruise because of the itinerary-particularly Latvia and Lithuania, which are two countries that my wife and i had never been to. It has also been 16 years since our previous Baltic cruise, so we were curious about potential ... Read more

We really enjoyed this Baltic cruise on the Nautica. We like the way we are treated by Oceania and we especially enjoy the food onboard. This cruise was port intensive with only one sea day, so we knew that there would be plenty of ... Read more

I chose this cruise in the Baltic region because there were places on this itinerary I had never visited before. I was particularly interested in transiting the Kiel canal. I flew into Stockholm on the day of the cruise so was unable to ... Read more

Our cruise on Sirena was chosen primarily for the itinerary, which followed the Atlantic coasts of Spain and France. We also wanted to revisit Oceania’s smaller ‘R-class’ ships after several cruises on the larger ... Read more

We chose this cruise primarily because of its itinerary (Lisbon, Porto, Gijon, Bilbao, Bordeaux, Biarritz, St.Malo, Le Havre. First time with the Oceania cruises. The room was small and obviously not completely refurbished, as promised. ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary however; the two ports I was looking forward to were skipped. The entertainment was awful for the most part. This tour was originally listed as a 21 day cruise but ultimately was changed into ... Read more

This was our 5th Oceania Cruise and 3rd on the Marina so we like it a lot. The staff are excellent, the rooms a generous size, the food is really excellent and we don't go for the entertainment. A nice set of ports, starting in Stockholm. ... Read more

This was our first cruise, so we don't have anything to compare with, but it was such a good experience we can't wait to go again. We don't drink much so didn't bother with a drinks package, and liked that other than alcohol everything ... Read more

This cruise was chosen for the ports of call in the Baltic and only having 1 sea day. This was my first time with Oceania and I had previously sailed with Azamara. The Marina is twice as big as Azamara but you didn't notice it had 1,200 ... Read more

The ship in general is looking tired and needing a refit. On deck 14, some of the windows were loose due to rust having eaten away most of the fasteners. Decks need some refinishing but the crew were diligent about trying to make it look ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we wanted to visit as many of the Baltic countries as possible and because we liked the variety of Excursions. We also chose it because Marina seemed a very gracious and well appointed ship. We chose it ... Read more

Disembarkation was easy at each port, even for those not taking Oceania tours. (Would not recommend using Oceania tours a la carte for St Pete, as each tour would return back to ship through all the traffic.) Heard of no virus ... Read more

I agree with another reviewer who pointed out how tired the cabins were. Our carpeting was frayed, there was rust along the door, furniture was scoffed and the pillows were lumpy. The PH cabins have a spacious, lovely walk in closet and ... Read more

This was my first cruise on a large ship. (My first cruise was on a brand new Junk in Ha Long Bay, so it is a different experience.) We arrived in Copenhagen a day early and explored the city one afternoon and the next morning, which was ... Read more

This was a very nice cruise with excellent staff. The stateroom was fine. The bathroom had a tub with a shower in addition to the typical shoe box size shower. So, that was very good. The food was very good. The best surprise was for ... Read more

We are a still working couple (55 and 53 years old) who are just beginning to cruise. The ship had many older travelers but we also found many travelers in mid-50-mid-60s that were active and social. We didn't see too many children or ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we had always wanted to go to the Baltic especially St. Petersburg. We were happy to see Oceania sailed there. We have sailed from Tahiti to Lima on the Marina three years ago. The Marina did not disappoint. ... Read more

We travelled with 3 other couples to celebrate our 60th birthdays. Our cabin was very nice and the service in the cabin was very good. Their drink packages are very confusing. My wife and I each bought one only to find out it was for beer ... Read more
