The boarding luggage procedure at Rio was a disaster. No available porters and when we found the place were we could give our bags they told us we couldn't drop them because they were to big. Really?
the gangway were stairs so if you needed assistance, too bad.
The ship is well mantained but it's showing it age. Our room is spacious but there are no electrical outlets on the bedside unless you call engineering to install a transformer to I could connect the Cpap machine. Refrigerator is stocked with water and soft drinks and are
complimentary. Bathroom has shower curtain with tends to drip water
to the bathroom floor. Hair drier in bathroom is from the 90tys but
there is another portable one. Our was broken but the steward
promptly replaced it. Room is quiet and the air conditioner is great.
Beds are great and we got good night sleeps
internet cost 600 dollars for 20 days and worst than dial up. RCCL is the way to go if that is important.
Do NOT serve yourself at the buffet lines. That's a no-no with Oceania. I'm ok with that because you don't handle the serving spoons other guest have used before you and avoid catching viruses. It also keeps you in check in putting too much food on your plate
Free water available before going on an excursion not like some cruise lines that charge 4.95 a bottle. ( RCCL)
The daily Current has good info and you also get a daily 4 page newsletter with the world news sports and weather. Tv has 3 channels with up to day free movies and change everyday. Nice touch and also a list is provided of an extensive video CDs to check out and watch in your room. Room service is 24 hours and great menu and is also free.
Turn down every night includes chocolate on the bed and ice in the bucket. Towels are fluffy and
