Oceana good but outdated and in need of refurbishment

Sail Date: October 29, 2016

Reviewed: 18 days ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

Cabin: c203

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.

Do yourself a favour and book excursion as anywhere in walking distance of the ship in dock is very grotty ,dirty and generally unpleasant
Cadiz (Spain)
Lisbon, Portugal

Tip

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