Review SummaryThe Oceania Marina is a beautiful ship with a great deal of comfort inlcuding a very accomodating staff. The beds could not have been more comfortable and the staterooms were very sutibable for a luxury ship. The "Enchanbting Rivieras" intinerary was our reason for taking this cruise and we were not disappointed. However, these locations would have been more comfortable in late October or early November. The heat was a downer, but we chose to go during August-Sept. which was the only choice for this exact itinerary of which we were aware. Overall, there was way too much "hoopla" about the cuisine, which lead to disappointment except for the new Oceania offering of "Red Ginger."
