We were very impressed with the service on Oceania.  My special dietary requests were handled the very best ever.  We enjoyed the fish dishes and tried to have some daily, either at lunch or dinner.  Don Klein gave very detailed talks about the Amazon and that made the trip much more interesting.  I would encourage people that are between 60 and 85 to choose Oceania.

We rode the hop on hop off bus and got heat stroke. It was way too hot to not have air conditioning.


We really enjoyed the way dinner was handled. We could show up in the main dining room with another couple and be seated with them. We also booked the Polo restaurant for our anniversary with another couple and they made us two cakes. Very nice.
