June 2015 - Marina to Europe - Northern Europe
We took our first Oceania cruise 10 years ago for our 25th and decided to repeat the experience for our 35th. This ship was almost double the people of the other we were on and we definitely liked the smaller one better, but this was totally fine as it was still so much smaller than the large ships. The cabin was very roomy and the beds and pillows were VERY comfortable! The staff is and so kind and friendly and all needs are met right away. The best thing thing is that Oceania is a very land intensive cruise line so even though days at sea are nice, days on shore are even better and there were plenty of those. The specialty restaurants are delicious, although the Polo Grill was not so good. We love the open seating for dinner and the choice of the grand dining room or the Terrace Grill. The variety was very good. It was not a "sit on the deck" cruise because it was often too cool on deck in this area, but we didn't miss that at all. The Horizons Lounge was wonderful to sit in and socialize and high tea was AMAZING! The massages at the spa were blissful as well and we never expected them to be so wonderful. We came back, not rested, which meant it was a great trip, but happy and satisfied full of great memories. We highly recommend this cruise and this cruise line.
