I have cruised with Oceania before. The previous was last year on the Riviera, and I gave top marks for most areas that make cruise successful and worth the money. This time the whole cruise was poor. A small cabin, and a bathroom more or less unusable. The first bad sign was boarding at midday to find no table left in Horizons. Obviously the American passengers have special privileges. I cannot think of anything about the ship that warranted paying more per day for an Insignia concierge cabin, compared to a penthouse on the Riviera. At least the Horizon restaurant chefs on the Riviera knew how to cook. The Insignia awful for quality and selection. A total lack of dishes that would be akin to a 5* ship. No Alaska crab legs, no crab and no roast Suckling pig with a crispy skin al' la Riviera.  The main dining room attempted the pig, but forgot to make it crispy. So the food was a no no. The ports of call were a mixture of dead boring, Honfleur [Sunday in the rain], Portland, Milford Haven and Verdon chosen as drop off, or pick up ports for ship tours. The interesting ones were Bilbao, Concarneau and St. Malo. I will never sail again on the Renaissance class ships again, not only with Oceania but other cruise companies such as Azamara, unless I was in a suite. Read Less

We have cruised on the larger Oceania ships before and were so pleased. We've done most of Europe already but this was a special cruise that featured the wine regions of Portugal, Spain and France. We cruised on Oceania Sirena. The ports were ok for the most part. We used Tours by Locals for most of our tours, rather than the costly ship tours. I felt our butler did not go over and above his service requirements. The food was excellent, as usual. I did not feel that the Sirena was as luxurious as the larger ships. It had undergone a refitting a few months back, but it still lacked the refinement of the other ships we sailed on. Although we did not attend any of the evening entertainment shows, I heard from several others that they were not great. I seriously doubt that I would ever sail on the Sirena again, but I still love Oceania. Read Less
