"Prior to boarding the Marina for our January jaunt up the western coast of South America and through the Panama Canal, I read many reviews here that had me slightly concerned.

1-10 of 47 Oceania Marina Cruise Reviews for Romantic Cruises to South America
Wow! The Coronavirus caused us to have quite the unexpected journey. Fortunately no one on the ship was infected with the virus. We were sailing to Pisco, Peru on day 18 of our planned 20 day cruise when the captain announced Peru had closed all its ports to cruise ships. Responding to this, our ship reversed direction and started sailing south with plans to return to the port of San Antonio, ...
The biggest take-away from this cruise is to say that if you do take medications, take an extra seven days worth with you. We were lucky and did, which we have done on previous cruises. You never know what may happen. After you read the rest of this you'll understand.
We chose this cruise for the itinerary. This was a Buenos Aires to Lima cruise around Cape Horn. We were also looking forward to ...
Short attention span version - Fabulous!
The itinerary was Buenos Aires - Miami 34-day "Grand Voyage", AKA B2B.
Captain - Luci Manzi
General Manager - Dominique Nicolle
Cruise Director - Peter Roberts
First impression: Marina is in outstanding condition. DW and I didn't observe any unsatisfactory issues as some have described.
Excellent dining in GDR, Wave Grill and ...
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 chose this trip for a few reasons:
1) the itinerary - to sail around Cape Horn/southern ocean
2) Timing - wanted a trip over the holidays (this one was from Dec 19-Jan 4)
3) Friends had sailed on the Oceania Marina ship To the Baltic a couple of summers ago - and had raved about their experience
SERVICE: Overall, the service was fantastic - ratio of Crew to Passengers is 1.56:1 - - ...
This was our 4th time on either Marina or her sister ship. The cruise was 18 days from Miami to Lima with going through the Panama Canal. It made port in several interesting countries along the way.
We were again very pleased. The ship is in excellent condition and immaculate. It is continuously cleaned!
Our cabin was a concierge on 9th floor. This is our favorite floor because we almost ...
When our neighbours told us they were going on this cruise and suggested we join them we thought why not, it's almost our silver wedding......so GLAD WE DID!!! Our first time with Oceania after several family cruises with Royal Carribean, Costa & Princess we were unsure what to expect. Answer - luxury, FABULOUS food, beautiful ship. We were in a penthouse suite with butler and were greeted with ...
We wanted to try Oceania instead of our usual Princess or HAL. My review is very mixed because some things were better and others were not. For example, embarkation was great, we walked right on and there were some little kiosks with nice items for sale before you boarded, including wine which you could take onboard. Disembarkation was horrible. They told us to be on one floor, then changed ...
