Huge disregard for the welfare of the customer

The ship layout was fine with one glaring exception. The Cruise Next "desk" was not a desk but three tiny round tables in the hallway above the atrium. The lines were in the way of people walking by and made things very inconvenient. The entertainment was excellent. The staff members were all friendly and helpful. There were several aspects of the cruise, however that make me rate it as less ...

Although our cruise choices are by no means exclusively with Saga, we chose this cruise as we have enjoyed several cruises with them in the past and this one particularly suited us having recently had a few health issues to cope with. We're never quite convinced that Saga's all-inclusive offering is the value for money they claim it to be but the fact that (nearly) everything is paid for in ...

We wanted some winter sun and friends had recommended Saga. We had never sailed with them before but do prefer smaller ships to the large monstrosities that the 5-6,000 passengers. Very good journey to Portsmouth and very smooth embarcation, our cabin was ready when we boarded. The cabin was very clean and the bathroom adequate the only negative was the lack of room in front of the wardrobe. The ...

Booking the included alternative dinning was no problem booking the 3 venues for out 14 day cruise . The food without ...

I am writing this from a disabled passenger's point of view. We chose this company because of its reputation for caring for those who do not move so easily. The taxi arrived at the promised time and we loaded it up with our cases and aids. The journey from Cheltenham to Portsmouth has an estimated time of around two hours. The morning was very wet and unpleasant. Shortly after we set off I ...

Marina - weather affected cruise

The weather played havoc with our cruise and while I understand that no-one can control that, I'm not sure that the best decisions were always made. We missed a day in Bordeaux and Tangier - both highlights of the cruise. We had 4 sea days instead of one, although we were compensated with a future cruise credit. Embarkation during a storm was a disaster. We had to drop untagged luggage at one ...

We choice this cruise for 2 reasons. Number one was the itinerary and number two was the fact that we have previouslsly sailed with Oceania on the Marina, and were quite satisfied. The overall cruise was fair at best. The ship was clean although there were some areas of deterioration. The greatest asset was the staff with the exception of the senior officers. The most significant ...

Overcrowded, understaffed and poorly managed

We've sailed 11 times on Oceania over the past 14 years. This is the first time we actually felt ready to disembark the ship and move on. We always felt Oceania was something special over the years, but they've cut a few too many corners this time. The ship felt overcrowded and understaffed. Speciality restaurants are still good, but the main dining room is totally cut back in service and in food ...

This was our 5th cruise with Oceania Cruise Lines since 2016 and sadly it will be our last because of our recent experience. Our first 3 cruises with Oceania, two to the Mediterranean, Adriatic & Greek Isles and one to the Southern Caribbean from 2016 - 2017 were exceptional. Our 4th cruise with Oceania was during a lull in the COVID pandemic in 12/2020. Strict protocols were in place to ...
