Bit Disappointing

We cruised with Oceania in January 2016 from Hong Kong to Bangkok and had a very good time. In November 2016 we did a Med Cruise going from Venice to Rome, however this one was a bit of a disappointment. It was ...

Oceania is over-rated in terms of luxury and comfort.

We chose the cruise based on its reputation. Despite the so called refurbishment, the Concierge Balcony windows and door are not properly sealed, causing the room to be cold and uncomfortable. We could not view ...

A wonderful crew and delicious food!

This the best cruise we have taken (20). The weather was not the best so two of our stops were cancelled. The food was excellent (the best) and the one Sunday buffet was superior. The ship was filled but not crowded ...

Perfect Ship for Mature Cruisers

We have been on only two ocean cruise (but 5 river cruises) and both on the Regatta. I imagine there are better ships out there (i.e. Regent level) that could be worth all 5 stars but for our tastes, the Regatta is ...
