EXTREMELY BORING CRUISE!!

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 ...

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 ...

Never again

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, ...

First and Last Time on Oceania

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. ...

Many Good Things, Many Bad Things

My wife has always wanted to experience Macho Pico and the cruise sounded unusual, the cruise line was highly rated so we booked. The Macho Pico add-on was a huge rip off. Due to the altitude, I couldn't go so ...

I second the comments on the Voyage of the Damned.

We also had the misfortune to be on the Regatta for 21days from Lima to Buenos Aires. I totally agree with burdock's review but doubt that I will be as kind and forgiving to Oceania and how this GI outbreak was ...

Very poor customer service......

First time on Oceania, but will be the last because they did not live up to "consistently delivering excellent service and value", as they state. The Marina ship was very nice and the service on board was fine. We ...

Some stops were boring, food has gone down, quarantined without much consulting with nurse or Doctor and whole ship under watch for illness. Quarantined for 48 hours while some for just 24--communication was very ...
