How disappointing

Review for Marina to South America

We have cruised on different cruise lines and are Princess platinum members. We are celebrating a special anniversary and based on the Oceania marketing decided to spend twice as much money as any other cruise line would charge to experience the “above and beyond” the Oceania offers. And in my mind the first thing would be exceptional service and attention from the cruise staff. So, here is ...

We have been on many Oceania cruises and loved them all. We selected this 33 day cruise that started in Buenos Aires and ended in Miami, primarily because my husband wanted to experience the Amazon. The ship is almost exactly like the other three smaller Oceania ships and the staff were really attentive and friendly. I didn't feel that way with the Officers. When I completed my mid-cruise ...

Stressed crew; poor excursions; inferior service for those of us quarantined

We picked Oceania because friends had commented that its food was among the best of all cruise lines. That wasn't our experience, especially compared with Silver Seas. When the ship set sail from Lima, it was already loaded with sick crew and a few sick passengers. Code Red, Level 2 CDC precautions were in place. Some public areas were closed but others weren't and that made no sense. Why ...

This was our first cruise with Oceania. We chose this cruise because of the wonderful itinerary. We arrived a week early to tour Cusco, the Sacred Valley, and, of course, Machu Picchu. all of this part of the trip was wonderful. Embarkation: Not at all optimal. The process of getting on the ship was quick and easy. From there the experience went downhill. Upon getting on the ship we were ...

This was our first cruise with Oceania, and will almost certainly be our last. We were unfortunate enough to board at a time when gastrointestinal disease had taken hold on the ship. This can happen on any ship, but the way that Oceania handled, or rather mishandled, this and the level of outright dishonesty was shocking. We were boarding in Lima, Peru and received an email even before we left ...

We've cruised many different lines and this was the absolute worse experience. Staff were unfriendly and had difficulty understanding English. The food was good but not the culinary experience we were expecting. We were under a "code red" during our first week and we couldn't do anything for ourselves including using salt and pepper on the table. Wine stewards and servers took forever to come ...

We chose this cruise for its itinerary. But it turned out to be disaster. Ship came back from Ushuaia and Machu Pichu infected with GI problems and influenza. Passengers were quarantined in their cabins and ship was supposingly being fully disinfected. Embarkation was delayed due to disinfecting procedures. All crew was working 2 extra hours a day to clean the ship. Unfortunately the cleaning ...

We had not been to the Amazon before and chose this cruise for its Itinerary. We chose Oceania because we have sailed with them before enjoying their high quality dining, and excellent service. In part, this experience was spoiled by a bad shore excursions. One was advertised as a tour in a luxury 4 x 4 jeep to remote parts of Barbados. The tour was actually in the back of a truck and was ...

We embarked on the 7th February 2016 at Lima and to begin with it was the old Regatta that we have been used to, superb service, food, wines entertainment home from home. On day three, very unexpectedly and not the fault of the cruise line, a gastrointestinal infection had been brought onto the ship, we believe from a tourist who had visited Machu Picchu. From then on the service, food and ...
