Review summary

The ship remains elegant and easy to navigate.  The food plentiful and varied, but all chicken dishes were overcooked and dry- avoid.  Our cruise had an outbreak of intestinal virus that the staff worked hard to contain and the wait staff was excellent.  Although air is included, transfers from the airport to ship are not!  They had always been in the past, contrary to what management told us onboard [this was our fifth oceania cruise].
