We cruised Oceania for the first time on Marian on Jan 7, 2016 from Valparaiso to Papeete. This was our 40 something cruise. We cruised previously with Seabourne, Crystal, Azamara, HAL, Princess and RCC, but first time with Oceania. We are mostly itinerary driven so we picked Oceania because she is scheduled to stop at Easter Island for two days. As it turned out, we were there only one day ...

Food a major disappointment, which reduces rating by two stars.

First time on Oceania but about 25 cruises under our belt ranging from Azamara, Celebrity, Princess, etc. We had really looked forward to this cruise based on the itinerary (Tahiti) and the Oceania's reputation for excellent food. Unfortunately we found the menus to be repetitive, not too extensive and in many cases just plain mediocre. Indeed, we have experienced better food and choices on ...

We're seasoned cruisers (33 total - going all the way back to Grace Lines "Santa Rosa" in 1957), and this marked our first time aboard Oceania. We sailed on Marina from Valparaiso on 17 Dec & disembarked in Tahiti on 4 Jan 2015. We'd booked our air through Oceania as well, and were quite concerned from the start that Oceania had cut the time to catch our connecting AA international flight from ...

This was our first experience traveling with Oceania. We usually choose our cruise based on the itinerary. We had always wanted to see Easter Island and Pitcairn Island so we booked the trip. Oceania was offering free air as well as free internet and prepaid gratuities. They also offered $500 in onboard credit and our travel agent also gave us $500 in onboard credit. Even with inflated wine and ...

We had been trying to get to the South Pacific for some time and had always been thwarted in our efforts. Then we noticed the Oceania cruise from Valparaiso. A bit of a tight squeeze getting there after Christmas but the flight arrangements Toronto-Miami-Santiago worked out just fine. We took the transfer from Santiago to the port of Valparaiso - a very busy port and it was interesting to watch ...

The Marina is a beautiful ship with large open areas. Even when the ship is completely full, as it was for us, you do not feel crowded anywhere. On the top of the ship is a running track and below it and above the pool another walking area. Unfortunately, both are without cover and provide the only options for walking outside since there is no promenade deck on this ship. Also, on the top deck you ...
