Most shops closed, but what a joy to see children playing on the beach and enjoying sunshine.
For those in Penthouses and above you have complimentary access to the Spa Terrace.  The loungers have been upgraded during the Oceania Next program
We always love to do a cooking class aboard Riviera or Marina.  This one Viva Espana was excellent.
A wine tasting offered in Jacques was worth the time and additional charge.

Nothing Beats the Owners Suite

We chose the cruise for its itinerary. We wanted to got to French Polynesia and had never cruised across the South Pacific with such exotic locations as the Pitcarin Islands and Easter Island. The flight over allowed us to visit one daughter & family in California out the way over and ended in New York where a second daughter lives. A bonus was a scheduled stop in Norfolk with even more ...

Had been with Oceania in 2011 and thoroughly enjoyed it. That cruise was a comfortable, fairly sophisticated experience, and was always was keen to repeat the experience. The company brochure is now really misleading. It shows elegant well dressed people, where in actual fact on this trip the majority of people were dressed in baseball caps, T shirts and dad trainers. We are in out late 60's ...

Horrible Capitain on this cruise!!!

I have cruised on Oceania numerous times and never had an experience quite like this cruise. The captain has a reputation on the ship of only going to ports he wants to go to and not what is on the schedule and what is best for the guests, under the auspice of weather or other conditions as an excuse. We ended up with 10 days at sea because of this. Over all the cruise was good (not great) and ...

We chose the cruise for the itinerary and the fact that we had been on the Mariner before and had liked it. This time however we were sorely disappointed. The captain seemed to have difficulty communicating with the passengers and any major announcements were handled by the cruise director. There was no warning that we would be without internet or communication the last half of the cruise. The ...

We chose our cruise because of the itinerary (French Polynesia & Hawaii) and were a little apprehensive due to the smaller ship. We were very happy with both. Planning to go again real soon. The staff especially the team of Joseph & Gidek (sic) our room attendants worked above and beyond to insure everything was perfect. We’ve been on a few other cruise lines and found Oceania a cut above the ...

Wonderful ship, crew and the food was outstanding! Really is best cuisine at sea. All four of their specialty restaurants treat you like you're their only patron. I wish more cruise ships would do as Oceania does and cut out the self-service at the buffet. I love that we are served and we all are not handling the servicing utensils. I know this helps with germ control. Wonderful Easter ...

We love Oceania for its amazing service and outstanding food quality and variety. We've been sailing on Oceania for the past 15 years and just got off the Marina yesterday. This was an unusual itinerary since it had so many sea days (which we both love). We boarded the ship in Papette, visited 4 ports in French Polynesia and then sailed to Hawaii and visited 4 island ports there. We sailed 5 ...

We chose this cruise of Polynesia solely because it was going to Easter Island - a port that few ships go to, and they are usually on a world cruise. We also were interested in going to the Pitcairn Islands, another port which is very hard to visit. Because of these two ports, we were willing to pay two to three times what other highly rated ships charge for tours of Polynesia, but without ...

Oceania disappoints on 8th cruise.

I have just completed my eighth voyage with Oceania Cruises. The introduction at the beginning of the Cruise Document package wished me an “unforgettable cruise”. It was an “unforgettable cruise”, for all the wrong reasons. In fact for me it was a disappointment. I opted for this cruise against a variety of others available because it was going to Easter Island. As you must be aware by now ...
