Oceania will need to figure out how to supply simple, fine cuisine rather than the typical quick buffet type offerings on the ship. Also not safe food temperatures I think. Mayo and tarter sauce not refridgerated as far as I know. Some food items may be stored overnight and served the next day making fresh food impossible. Multiple Asian food nights for example. Asian food on all ships are nothing like properly prepared Asian food in major cities in the US. I could not eat anything. Lobster in the specialty and main dining smell funny and I heard many complaints. Food manager and Chefs were attentive but the problem is more difficult a fix. Cuisine needs to be rethought out and made smaller, fresher, better quality.

OK performers but not all the level of larger ships

Large balcony on aft was the only really great thing. Noisy vibrations above engine though.
Wait till the ship gets refurbished. Don't expect great food unless the food management has better port choices for supplies.
Nice only around the wharf. Never go out at night unless you are directly in this expensive wharf area or you may get robbed at knife point. We were close to the ship but not in the wharf side where all the tourists are. Constant begging and Scammers all around Cape Town.

Sad looking faces on 2 people watching us get off. No words spoken. Maybe because of the robbery the night before.
