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.

I wish I had splurged on more Excursions cause I only did 4 and they were all excellent. Also I think its smart to travel the day before and after the cruise in the event of an airline mishap which occurs on a regular basis and it also gives you time to enjoy those two locations as well.

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.
