The weather was not as good as it might have been in the Canaries and Madeira.

Could not change from 2nd to first sitting.  I know we booked late but my husband is diabetic and late meals are a problem.  However they were unhelpful so we ate in the Horizon every night bar one

Crew generally though were helpful, cabin steward excellent

Oceana good but outdated and in need of refurbishment by Cruiser59628447

Spending over 3 days at sea initially was too long for us very pleased to reach land in Madeira. Ship bit dated and in need of a refurbishment ,chaotic dining in self service and lack of tables, it was a daily task to find somewhere to sit and eat although food was very good at all times.

Dining at night was excellent with fabulous service and food in the Adriatic restaurant.

Lack of seating space to sit and relax during day and evening (why all the space taken up by art gallery and photos when there is this lack of seating?)

Would recommend more outside seats and less sun beds as most of guests were elderly and a lot were immobile and unable to get on to sunbeds.

Cabin was small but adequate but had problems with toilet overflowing and there was an overwhelming musty smell outside cabin with hot air blowers frequently in use as they had obviously had flooding problems earlier.

One morning we lost the use of the toilet as it stopped working altogether.

The cabin steward though was excellent , very pleasant and helpful.

Overall we enjoyed the cruise but afraid the ship does not compare to the Carnival Magic we last cruised on and i dont think we will be sailing on the Oceana again.

THe main restaurants were so good that when we tried the cafe jardin we didnt think it any better and so would not bother unless you really like the menu.

Recommend upgrading to cabin with window or balcony as inside cabin a bit claustrophobic
