Physically Unpleasant Stateroom 7033

The ship is beautiful. The cuisine is fabulous. We couldn't wait to get off. We were in stateroom 7033. The heating and air conditioning system only blew cold air. No matter how much we turned up the thermostat, the unit, located right over the right side of the bed, blew cold air. Even with the veranda door open, it blew cold air. Sleeping under the cold and perhaps dirty (dust? mold?) air ...

As veteran cruisers, we had high expectations for our first cruises (2/4 and 2/14, back to back) on Oceania. Our expectations were exceeded. Outstanding staff, cuisine, and a beautiful ship. We found the food in all venues to be wonderful, from the pool grill to the four upscale speciality restaurants. Totally professional wait staff in all venues. The only negative issues we encountered ...

We thought we should try another line as we had only done many cruises on Crystal. Positives- our cabin was very nice, our steward was great, and room service was good, tea was nice. Unfortunately the tiny table on our veranda was so small that we had to eat with our plates on our lap. Negatives- terrible service regarding drinks at dinner ( we had the premiere package), terrible food in main ...

Chose cruise for convenient location. Stateroom had not been cleaned properly. Attendant was poor. Worst service ever( taken 92 cruises). No respect for passengers, staff don't care. Even Hotel Manager couldn't get cooperation!!! He had invited us to dinner as an apology but we never received the invitation!! Only one show in the evening so it was Special Dining or Show but not ...

WARNING: It's not the same Oceania as the past, huge disappointment

Sixth Oceania cruise, just wanted a short escape before Christmas. We didn't care about the ports, we just wanted to relax and enjoy the ship. We were not expecting the worst service ever received on an Oceania cruise, and actually some of the poorest service I've ever experienced on any of my past 25 or so previous cruises My guess is that between having management raided by Viking Ocean ...

The food and the food service having an outstanding reputation fell far short of our expectations. Several entrées were returned to the kitchen which were tasteless or overcooked. The veal marsala served at the Toscano special restaurant was lacking the Marcella sauce and tasteless. The egg plant lasagna served at the buffet was so undercooked that it tasted like a raw vegetable. The grouper at ...

This was our first Oceania cruise and it sure was more than my husband and and I expected - it was fantastic. The ship, Riveria, was a nice size, small with lots of amenities. Our concierge suite was small, but offered lots of storage, drawers and shelves. The speciality restaurants were great, with Jacques being my hands down favorite. The shows were fun with talented singers and ...

Weather in northeast was far too cold to enjoy the beautiful cities of Canada and New England. Embarkation looked like a greased pig rodeo with two individuals (later three) controlling the crowds. The "herder-in-charge" was too busy chatting with guests (at the head of the line) to keep the processing running smoothly, with agents waving at him frantically to get his attention to send over ...

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary. All of the cities were places of interest to us and we had not visited them before. We took advantage of the pre cruise add on. Our hotel, Le Germaine, in Montreal had just re-opened after an update. The update is quite modern, think chairs hanging on chain from the ceiling. The hotel is in an ideal location for walking to downtown. The bed was ...

Food was great, excellent maid service and friendly professional wait staff. Lousy wifi connectivity; we had to go to computer area to complete this review. On shore excursions were less than adequate. Cliff Walk and Breakers in Newport was good and allowed for time on your own in Breakers mansion. PEI tour of Coastal Charms was too long -- stopping for 45 minutes at souvenir shop not ...
