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 ...

Enjoyable Throughout

Wanted to go through Panama Canal and wanted a longer cruise. We've been working up in the length of time as we move toward retirement. Heard good things about Ocean and it fit the other criteria so we booked. ...

The good and the not so good and the average

We chose this itinerary and line because of our prior experience and because of the Panama Canal crossing and an opportunity to see the Mayan Ruins in Mexico. The ship itself is beautiful and very well ...

Oceania is OK, but some pretty big issues.

We sailed from Valparaiso to Tahiti in January 2016. This was our first Oceania cruise. I doubt we would sail with Oceania again. First thing was their loss leader concept on their brochures. Advertise a low ...

Great Cruise with Most Unique Itinerary

Note: we only did the 18 day portion of this longer voyage, i.e., Valparaiso to Papeete. After a many years hiatus from cruising (due to professional responsibilities), retirement found us back in the cruise ...

Oceania Pacific Serenade, Valparaiso to Papeete

This was our first cruise with Oceania and I have to admit to being a little disappointed with the company. The Itinerary was great, although you have to be prepared for a lot of sea days (10) for the opportunity to ...

Food a major disappointment, which reduces rating by two stars.

First time on Oceania but about 25 cruises under our belt ranging from Azamara, Celebrity, Princess, etc. We had really looked forward to this cruise based on the itinerary (Tahiti) and the Oceania's reputation for ...

Uneven Experience with Oceania

The Marina is a beautiful ship with large open areas. Even when the ship is completely full, as it was for us, you do not feel crowded anywhere. On the top of the ship is a running track and below it and above the ...

We had been trying to get to the South Pacific for some time and had always been thwarted in our efforts. Then we noticed the Oceania cruise from Valparaiso. A bit of a tight squeeze getting there after Christmas ...
