Oceania Disappoints

This was our 8th Cruise on Oceania. We sailed May 17, 2018 from Rome to Venice on an 8 day cruise. We've always felt in the past sailing on Oceania was worth the extra cost over some of the mainstream cruiselines. ...

Definitely not six stars...

We chose this cruise to compare to Azamara Club Cruises, another 6-star line. But Azamara wins hands down for the quality of its staff, staff training, cleanliness on the ship, quality of food, etc. Riviera’s ...

Hard to beat their cuisine and value!

Oceania's Riviera and Marina, by our account, do have the best cuisine of any cruise line. Add their culinary classes and they're a foodie's choice in cruising. Its not a perfect experience, the entertainment, ...

Not worth it and won't choose Oceania again

We chose this review for the itinerary, hoping for an upscale smaller ship. 1) My primary reason for given this such a poor review was that the staff was really not great. This has to be the first cruise where ...

The suite was great, food was wonderful, but not a lot to do on the ship.

The cabin was incredible. Way more luxurious and roomier than the photos show. The media room was the hangout place for the wife and I, as they had every movie and TV show you could want on their DVR. This cabin is ...
