This was our second time on the Marina.  We love Oceania for the service and food.  Unfortunately their entertainment is pretty bad.  They had 2 different pianists play and 3 different singers, snooze fest.  The ports were great except Casablanca which I thought was a disguisting cesspool.  Oceania needs to drop this port, I didn't speak with anyone who liked the port.  Spain was beautiful and was Lisbon.  We would go back to Spain and Lisbon in a heartbeat.

Cabin / Stateroom
This cabin is very close to the lounge which makes morning coffee convenient.

Barcelona, Spain
Great city to visit, look at Barcelona Day Tours. We stayed at Hotel Roger Du Lugeria, the staff was great but we ask for a quiet room and received a room facing the street. The room was quite noisy.
Palma De Mallorca, Balearic Islands
Cartagena, Spain
Malaga, Spain
We used Spain Day Tours in this port, they were great. We went to Grenada for the day.
Gibraltar (U.K.)
Go see the monkeys, you can't miss them.
Casablanca, Morocco
Don't get off the ship, I would never go back.
Cadiz (Spain)
We used Spain Day Tours and went to Seville, great day.
Lisbon, Portugal


The ship is beautiful and we have never had bad service on Oceania. The onboard shopping could be better and the entertainment definitely needs to be better. The downside of this ship is the lack of activities after dinner.
