This is my second cruise on the Sienna and I recommend this smaller ship. It is elegant and the friendly staff will treat you like royalty. The cabin is comfortable, clean and roomy. Oceania is known for their luxury dining and they ... Read more

Sorry, Oceania, but Princess has a better product. The food was not enjoyable and rather repetitive. The pizza was to die for--literally--that bad! Here in Rome we had real pizza; the stuff at the Terrace Cafe was tomatoe sauce on ... Read more

*First cruise on Oceania, although 3rd cruise in a "R ship", so we knew what to expect when it came to the tiny cabin shower, public spaces, size, etc. Compared to Azamara's ships this recently refurbished ship is marginally ... Read more

Oceania is a good cruise line, and the Marina is a lovely ship. There are only 1250 passengers, so people who are wary of the 5000 -passenger vessels would be wise to consiser this company. It is never crowded, even in the Terrace ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it had an interesting itinerary (Cape Verde, Dakar, St. Barts etc) for a transatlantic crossing, and because as a TA it was very cost effective on a per-day basis compared to some other O cruises. This was ... Read more

We recently completed the transatlantic cruise on Riviera from Miami to Barcelona. The boarding process was set up in a temporary tent, though not as professional a set up, the staff got the job done, quickly and efficiently. The ship ... Read more

We prefer slightly smaller ships but in the same or better class. This was our first exposure to Oceania and we were comparing this experience to Seabourn. The ship was very nice and the Penthouse Suite was just a bit larger than the ... Read more

We have sailed Oceania 6 times and this time we were disappointed, not in the amenities or service which was outstanding. We chose a transatlantic crossing thinking there would be movies, lectures on varied topics beside the usual games ... Read more
