Try all of the restaurants. They are fabulous. And do not cost extra. If you go to Brazil, there is a 25% surcharge to anything you buy onboard, so plan to pre-purchase wine for meals before you enter Brazilian waters.

One cruise lap at a time. 34 days was a bit long for us. Try not to eat everything in sight

Marina is showing its age and a decline in staffing working standards

Check out afternoon tea. Nice nibbles with a string quartet playing in the background. (you can have a cappuccino if you don't like tea)

A room close to elevators would be preferred. Sign up early for culinary classes & Excursions. We love the size of this ship

Go for the concierge level. We booked a different level on this voyage due to traveling with others, and they did not want to opt for the higher priced level. We sure did miss the little extras we had on the concierge level. We won't be making that mistake again.

Book specialty dining as early as possible to get earliest dining times.

If you have kids be prepared to entertain them in your room. Otherwise enjoy the views and the excellent service and relax a bit on your cruise.

Don't bypass the Red Ginger specialty restaurant! Excellent!

Terrific service. Staff is amazing and food is excellent. But not sure it’s “finest cuisine at sea” or worth the premium Oceania charges.

Check with the dining staff about adding extra nights in specialty restaurants as the food is excellent. You can request extra times and if space is available you can get a bonus

Probably better to stay in the mid to back of the ship due to proximity to restaurants (on 5th and 12th floors)
