Disappointment on many counts

Having taken three previous excellent cruises with Oceania (on Regatta and Nautica), we jumped at the chance to book a trip to see Australia and New Zealand aboard Sirena, a so-called "sister ship." Little did we know that Sirena is apparently the ugly sister of the bunch. We booked our trip in early February, 2016, and, since our desired Penthouse level was not available, we booked a suite on ...

We chose this cruise because of the destination and our prior cruises with Oceana. While our cabin was good, our cabin attendant was usually no where to be found. The food was a disappointment, especially the 2 upscale restaurants. At the Tuscan Steak our steaks had to be sent back and at The Red Ginger fod was returned and service was lacking. It was a chore to get our wine bottles we had ...

Disclaimer: This is a detailed and comprehensive review. My husband and I recently sailed on Oceania's cruise of Australia/New Zealand (9-14 April 2017) on the ship, Sirena. This was our first ocean cruise ever and to say we were impressed is an understatement. The Sirena was amazing. It apparently had been refurbished within the last year and it was very beautiful and well-equipped with ...

Best part of cruise was time on shore

We chose this cruise based on our satisfaction with 3 previous Oceania cruises and for this cruise's ports of call. There were high points and low points during the cruise, unfortunately with too many lows. The main problem was too much time at sea due to the 2-day crossing of the Tasman Sea plus a 3rd day that was onboard ship when it visited Milford Sound enroute to the east side of NZ. The ...

Very Enjoyable Cruise

We chose this cruise for the itinerary and we were not disappointed. The itinerary was amazing and we were successful in arranging private tours in all of the ports except 3 where Oceania had booked all the spots in the preferable tours. In those ports, we had no choice but to book with the ship and it was ridiculously expensive. The tours were great but about 4 times what we would have paid with ...

Great Cruise, Perfect Way to See Australia

The crew was outstanding, making sure your every wish was met with a smile. We were concerned about taking a 34 day cruise thinking that it would be too long. We were wrong. The itinerary was great and our days at sea were filled with activities. I found it interesting that a large number of Australians choose this cruise to see their own country. The size of the ship allowed us to get ...

Tour Management Disappointing

Everything (ship, staff, food, itinerary) was fantastic, just as we've come to expect from Oceania, except for their tour management. The tour write-ups posted on-line based on which we made tour reservations were frequently very different from the description provided in the blue book and onboard and from the contents of the actual tour. We showed one guide what had been posted and he said ...

We chose the cruise around Australia because of the itinerary. We loved this ship, which is the same as the three other smaller Oceania vessels. The entertainment was good to excellent, using Aussie talent as we cruised around the continent. Dining was wonderful, as usual, with excellent food in the Grand Dining Room as well as the specialty restaurants. We used private tours, so I cannot ...

This was our fifth cruise with this line and we were in the minority. Most passengers we met had enjoyed many, many more. Service is attentive. Our circumnavigation of Australia provided us with diversity in choice of ports. We appreciated the shuttle buses to the city centres. Unlike other cruise lines we have used, Oceania has a nice bistro where you can get speciality coffees and not have ...

Small ship had advantages and disadvantages: in rough seas the motion is much more of a problem and we had some very rough seas. Another advantage is that smaller ship can dock much closer to towns than larger ones: unfortunately, this was not the case and we were shunted to ports much further than I expected. Cabins are incredibly small and they look large compared to the bathrooms. Again, the ...
