A great balance of fun and luxury! by lindadegler

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

Dottie, our cruise director was great. Food and service were excellent, although I would have liked more vegetable options on the buffet. Plenty of fruit to choose from, and healthy entrees as well as all the usual indulgences. Grand Dining Room was fabulous but my son wasn't able to eat with us since he only brought slides and hiking shoes. He preferred the buffet anyway. Specialty restaurants were great!!! There were only a few smokers on our cruise, so I don't see why smoking couldn't be banned completely. Glad they were only allowed in two areas, though. Overall a great experience.

Sunny Alaska by margaretharriso

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Unexpectedly we had excellent weather. The staff and crew could not have been more gracious and efficient. Our excursions were great as well as the tour guides. The food was 5 star quality with a variety of choices. The room was small for what we expected for concierge level and the bathroom was minute. If the weather had not been so lovely it might have dampened the experience.

Not a great value for the monet by amav

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Food and service were excellent. Regatta is old and not very spacious. Entertainment was average and venue very poor. Lounge was all on one level and although intimate it was hard to see entertainers from the majority of the seats. Limited music options. Piano player was excellent but classical group was not good and there were no other options. Best part of cruise was quality and variety of food in all restaurants.

Relaxing Cruise! by kmartmey

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Our first on Oceania, we liked the Miami cruise to Bermuda which saved us Floridians airfare & time from more typical departure ports from New England. We absolutely loved Charleston & Bermuda, but stayed on board for Port Canaveral & Nassau as we've been there numerous times & we wanted to enjoy the mid-size ship'srelaxing pool. The pool deck area is somewhat small but beautiful & spa-like, with terry-cloth covered chairs that aren't jammed together like most cruises & hotels. The menus were amazing but the meals in the Grand wasn't typically served hot so we often opted for the wonderful buffer (grilled lobsters, lamb chops, etc.). Outstanding procedures to ensure cleanliness & prevent norovirus. Overall, just what we had hoped for! And yes, Oceania caters to an older market which worked for us (60). There are NO children's activities & therefore few kids on board ANN no photographers annoying you. A bit pricier upfront costs but many items included such as specialty coffees, sodas, bathrobe & slippers, and internet package.

Excellent food; service uneven. by niccimjb

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

the itinerary was good, as promised.  The food was excellent, as promised.  The service, however, was unpredictable.  From stateroom to dining room it ranged from excellent to poor.

our bed was slanted and never fixed for the entire cruise.  Our air conditioning was only fixed on day 14.  Some waiters and sommeliers were attentive and informed while one bar waiter did not know what Tempranillo was and just brought a different red wine, saying it is a red wine.

specialty restaurants excellent on all levels

Disappointing by mlroit1945

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Ancient Legends is clearly a misnomer.  The archaeological sites were often long bus trips from the port leaving limited time to explore the "ancient legends."  Riding back and forth on a bus full of people for  an hour or more to a site is disappointing. The highlight of this trip was the passage through the Panama Canal . It was fascinating but hardly ancient.

 

The Regatta is an older Oceania ship. We had an expensive suite that was worn and dusty. The suite was also above the lounge (which no one warned us about) so we had to listen to the the band rehearsing during the day and playing at night. Listening to a thumping base and hard hitting drums does not make for a quiet relaxing cruise.

Great cruise with wonderful food and service! by Ginniecat

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Oceania had a terrific itinerary - food was superb and service was exceptional. 

I would have liked more enrichment lectures as the sea days seemed long, especially toward the end of the voyage. Thankfully I am a bridge player and the instructors were terrific!

Amazon River cruise by Charleycruise

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Our favorite part of the cruise was the selection of ports we visited. We were able to experience the large cities as well as the small villages that make up the vast Amazon basin. 

 

The ship provided excellent food and  service. We were surprised at the average age of guests on this cruise. Most were very old and many had difficulty moving around because of health issues. We hadn't experienced this before on Oceania. We would have preferred a mix of young and old, especially since a number of passengers were coughing and sneezing by the end of the cruise.

 

We may try a different cruise line next time.

The food.  We would recommend to others---at a different time of year.  Rocky seas, cloudy weather.  Cocktails and wines very expensive---overpriced for international waters.

Great birthday celebration! by dmassanari

Dock near the center of attractions in almost every port. Small friendly ship with approximately 1 staff member per 4 guests. Many were greeting us by name by the second or third day. Nice to. It have to pay for every sofa or espresso!  And the food was fantastic!  Particularly in the complimentary specialty restaurant, Toscana!

Widely varied itinerary. Superb destinations desk (thanks Antonia and Luis!). The food is "over the top"!  The superb performers have great personalities and love to stop and talk.  We were honored to be guests of the staff captain and environmental officer for dinner- very gracious.

Great Cruise by pat92101

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The Regatta is a wonderful ship.  The cabin service is superb.  We had great meals and had a choice of five locations.  The service in all dining locations is top notch.

 

The whole staff is helpful. 

 

We we had great food, all sorts of wonderful choices.  The desserts were great and the afternoon tea should not be missed.

 

The captain was wonderful as was the cruise director.  The communication was excelltbe.

 

canada is wonderful and we had perfect weather throughout the trip.

I highly recommend Oceania. It is a cruise for adults, no children were onboard. 

 

This is was our 7th cruise on Oceania and we have two more booked.

Trip from hell by tjzabi

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

the staff and the people we met were my favorite.

panama cancel crossing was interesting to watch 

food was good - specialty restaurant excellent

ports of call the pits

terrible tours terrible guides

such poverty is depressing

charleston lovely but only spent a few hours due to going thru immigration

shows except for comedian and the one singer who go on in Charleston were high school wuality

the product is inferior to what I thought it would be 

ship needs to be refurbished

bathroon to small

what can I say

oceania needs to get their act together before it goes the way of Renaissance

The Cruise by randykg528

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We were both very pleased with the cruise, all of the amenities, the crew, the food and entertainment, after seven great days on the cruise, we had to wait 5 hours at the Seattle airport for our flight back to Los Angeles, (Oceania booked our flights) that was a bad ending to a great cruise!

Upscale service, food, and talks. by lindahikes

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

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.
