Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Oceana / Destination: Europe

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Oceana good but outdated and in need of refurbishment by Cruiser59628447

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Oceana / Destination: Canaries

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.

Itinerary changed twice! by GillyMilly

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Oceana / Destination: Europe

Embarkation was very crowded and it would have been nice to have been able to visit Zeebrugge as we had booked a day in Ghent. We were refunded and were compensated with a bottle of Asti Spumante but had paid to go to more ports than we were able. The most important thing was though that the captain and crew kept us safe in very difficult circumstances.

Not quite the cruise we were dreaming of! by crowsley

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Oceana / Destination: Europe

Not the cruise we hoped for but a good break and time together. Teenage kids enjoyed the freedom of the ship and we felt they were safe. Oceana is an older ship but not in bad condition. Wish she had a crows nest bar. Staff are great and very friendly. Bad weather was the main cause of the issues as the ship was late docking at the start. Probably just need to expect cruises to Northern Europe at this time of year can be subject to bad weather.

Spain and Portugal on Oceana by DanutaStephen

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Oceana / Destination: Europe

Overall a great cruise. Only fault was that on the two days when the entertainment staff ran the dancing in the evening instead of the dancing teachers they were not strict about the two ballroom/Latin two sequence rule and allowed the sequence dancers to take over at the expense of the ballroom dancers. I would go on Oceana again as long as it was from Southampton.

Oceana Malta / Malta by DavidGoodlake

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Oceana

Overall disappointed. Cruise companies appear to be reducing their standards year on year. We have cruised on many ships and on various lines and all fit in the same mould.

A great first cruise by MartinlJane

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Oceana

Our first ever cruise. Croatia is stunningly beautiful and would be happy to go back. Venice was rushed, and overcrowded. We appreciate we did not see it at its best, but not in any rush to go back. Malta was a pleasant surprise, and left feeling we don't know enough about its history. The excursions we're a mixed lot, some excellent, some disappointing. The organisation of excursions etc was generally excellent, but there were problems in Hvar, when the blustery weather caused issues, which can always happen, however the lack of information, poor communication etc. Made the experience far more exasperating than it need be. The ship, Oceana, is a lovely ship, and you quickly find your favourite spots. The quality of food was excellent both in the restaurants and in the plaza. However, overall, the one thing I have to say is; while on our cruise Thomas Cook went into liquidation, which left many passengers concerned about their holidays and if they had flights home. Everywhere we were hearing horror stories about what was happening to people and being thrown out of hotels etc. P&O we're exemplary - I cannot praise the way they handled the situation highly enough. They flew extra personnel to the ship to deal with concerns, and to Malta where everyone was due to get off, they sourced flights for everyone to get home on their due days, and told everyone to enjoy their holidays, they would resolve all the issues. They were fantastic.

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Oceana

Itinerary great, ship also excellent no signs of her looking tired as others have mentioned. Sail ins to Dubrovnik and Venice well worth getting up early for. Food excellent in evening, just need more gluten free choices at lunch. On board entertainment also excellent especially the shows by the Headliners, really friendly group to talk to as well. Overall a very good holiday
