You should really book excursions through the cruise line unless you are going to be local for shopping. If your excursion runs late and you book excursions privately, the ship probably will not wait if they are scheduled to leave. We were late getting back from Tikal and the ship waited for us.

We did not realize that you could pre-book reservations with the two high end restaurants on line, by the time we were on the cruise most of the reservations were taken for Toscona & Pollo Grill, we did get late reservation.

Don't bother getting off the boat unless you take an excursion, book them on your own, look for local liquor stores in ports of call and enjoy beverages in your room. Don't bring a bottle of your own to a dining room, they charge $25 corking fee. Yes, we were able to being liquor on borad.

Grand Dining Room meals were fabulous, but if you're in a hurry to finish, your best bet would be the Terrace Cafe!

Spend a little more with Oceania, get room service free for breakfast lunch and dinner specialty drinks free. And much much more

This is an old ship with very few conveniences e.g., technology. Electrical plugs are only found in the cabin to charge phones/iPad and passengers are not allow to leave devices charging unattended due to fire hazards. The ship has breakdowns which may impact the selected route. Passengers who started the route in San Diego spent 10 days in Hawaii because the ship broke down; they were given $500 onboard credit per cabin. DON'T BUY EXCURSION THROUGH OCEANIA, BUY THEM AT EACH PORT; THEY ARE MUCH CHEAPER AND MORE FUN.

Relax and enjoy! Since this is a small ship you can get anywhere in 5 minutes or less. No lines to wait through minutes to get off and on ports. This is not a party ship! If you are looking for the party to start at midnight this is not the ship for you!

If you have not been on smaller ship before, then study the room layout before you go and do not overpack.

Check the ports ahead of time. The stops in the Caribbean are easily accessed on your own. No need to buy excursions. Depending on what you want to do that can be true of other stops as well. For example, in Parintins we took a pedi-cab for $20.00 and saw everything there was to see.

Set up your own tours. We did this for several ports of call. Don't worry about getting back to the ship on time. Private tours are totally aware of the time issues.

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.

The ship needs to work on their wine service. Wait staff should be trained to pour wine rather than only using sommeliers.
