Be ready to be pampered. Not for children. Dress well (country club cassual) not stuffy clothes, just nice. Leave the cuttoffs and jeans home.

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.

Marina is a mid-size ship, hence has limited shopping opportunity. I developed a blister on my foot which became infected and used the medical services offered on the ship. The doctor was very good.

When getting off the elevator look for a phone on wall to determine what side of the ship your stateroom is on!!!

Read the information that you are given every night carefully, there are good tips on what is going on in the port cities, as well as hours for the restaurants etc. In some cases that changed. As well as any ship activities.

Happy Hour was great, 2 for 1 drinks helped save a bit of money.

They offer 2 for 1 drinks each evening from 5 until 6PM. That helped keep our bar tab down!

Be sure to visit the Coffee Corner in the morning. The friendly staff there serve the best coffee and expresso.

We reserved cabins near the elevators to more easily access dining rooms and entertainment venues.

Airport transfers and excursions are the weakest parts. Wish I had checked where there were hop-on, hop-off busses available as better alternatives

This ship has an extensive library where you may exchange your books. It was the best we've seen, and I will remember to take books for the exchange next time.

Americans should bring electric adaptors. Although there are a couple of Edison (USA type) outlets we needed to do some sharing with our one adaptor. Brush up on your French as some Islands' people don't speak English.

This being our third trip on this ship my wife and I find the experience normally quite pleasant. Get specialty restaurant reservations when you first get on and don't be shy about going back for more as the cruise goes on. Participate in one or two of the on board cooking classes, The artists loft offers free classes on sea days. Collect your Big O Points and cash them in for hats, shirts, etc. at the end of the cruise. From 5 to 6 in the evening drinks are 2 for one in most of the bars, take a glass of wine to dinner. Wash your hands. (Note: If they start increase sanitation they will shut down the self service laundry. But you can get 20 items washed in 24 hours for $26)

We prefer cabins toward the rear of the ship, closer to the restaurants!
