This was our 7th Oceania cruise and this is the first time we have been somewhat disappointed. I could go through everything day by day, but the bottom line is that the quality of the food was not what we have become accustomed to. They had the usual choices in the dining room, but while we raved about every meal after our prior cruises, this time we would look at each other and say, "That wasn't as good as last time." Deserts at TeaTime were definitely not up to par, for the most part being dry. It was as if they forgot oil eggs or whatever liquid the recipe called for. I know there was a cruise director on board, but we didn't see him until the Captain's party, and then only one time after that. We are used to seeing cruise directors everywhere on the ship. We had a PH, and running along the wall was an extension cord duct-taped to the wall which kept coming undone. In the past, I always felt like crew were eager to help, but this time I felt like I was imposing if I needed something. The worst was when my husband ordered a very expensive bottle of wine which usually would last him 3 nights. He asked our assistant waiter to make sure the bottle was put away for the next night since the sommelier was nowhere to be found. The next night when he asked for the bottle, he was told there wasn't one. After arguing with the supervisor, he asked the assistant waiter if he remembered my husband asking him to put the bottle away and whether there was any wine in it. Even after the assistant waiter verified my husband's story, the supervisor refused to replace the bottle and told my husband there was nothing that could be done. They gave him a glass of house wine which was a far cry from the $94 bottle of wine he had purchased. This is not the Oceania we are used to. We booked private excursions since Oceania's shore excursions are way over-priced and we have not used them in years. They need to look at the cost of these and do something about them or else everyone is going to skip the ship's tours. We did one in Norway in July for $37 and the ship charged $315 for the identical tour. We have loved every cruise we have done on Oceania before this and just felt that everything had dropped down a few notches. We are hoping after the Nautica comes out of dry dock, things are better.

We cruised on the Millennium in January 2013 in Asia. We had an AquaSpa Stateroom which was an awkward shape, but nice. The bed and couch were very comfortable, but the bathroom was extremely small and hard to shower in. Our room steward was nice and did a great job on cleaning our room, but you never saw him unless he was cleaning rooms. The Blu Dinner Room was included with our room category and I would not recommend it. The service was slow and the waiters liked to stand around and talk to each other against the walls while empty dishes sat in front of the guest and drinks unfilled. The food was not that good and I wish we would have eaten in the main dining room. We also ate in the other speciality restaurant and the service was much better, but the food was not. The Grill had very good food and we ate there a lot. We also had use of the Perisan Garden, in the Spa area, included with our category, and it was wonderful. I loved the Grotto and Turkish bath. The pools were great and well maintained with very comfortable lounges. Asia was fantastic! We really enjoyed Komodo Island and seeing the different lifestyles of the people in the different countries. It really makes you realise how lucky we are. The excursions arranged by the ship were very good except for too long on a couple of stops. Seven-hour and 8-hour tours are about 2 hours too long for comfort. Overall, Asia is wonderful and a cruise is a wonderful way to see the different places and still have the comfort we are use to in the United States. Read Less
