First time and last time with Oceania unless its a fantastic Itinerary

We chose the cruise for the Itinerary and based on Oceania's reputation. Well yes the food exceeded expectations, so much so it was too fancy and by the end of the cruise we were looking for plain and simple. The ...

Pro's and Con's

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 ...

Probably last time

Having cruised with Oceania before for a total of 63 days on two cruises, we knew what to expect. Small cabins (even the conceriage cabins have only 165 sq ft of living area) and a buffet that is overcrowded ...

Outstanding service but disappointing food and shore excursions

This was a spur of the moment decision made 3-months before embarkation. A deeply discounted price and exotic destinations on the Amazon River got us to book. We were not even considering a 2017 cruise. My wife ...

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 ...

Good cruise, but not for the price

We recently completed the 23-day Caribbean and Amazon Rivers cruise on Oceania Regatta. Our overall assessment of the cruise is that it was, in general, a good cruise. However, for the pricing, we were expecting ...

Oceania Insignia has very dated decor and facilities.

We chose Oceania for the 12-day cruise between Buenos Aires and Rio (11/07/16 to 11/19/2016) because of the unique itinerary on a relatively small ship (previous cruising experiences were on much smaller boats ...

Lima to Buenos Aires - The Voyage of the Damned

First and foremost, and this is just luck of the draw, the ship came down with the Norovirus and despite many attempts, I don’t believe they were ever successful in eradicating the virus. This made food service ...
