Good cruise except noisy stateroom

Sail Date: June 01, 2015

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Cabin: 9067

Friendly staff, well maintained ship with exceptional specialty restaurants. Tours ran from very good to poor. Oceania cancelled the Egypt itinerary because of unrest. Onboard entertainment varied from excellent to good. Onboard lectures were very good.  The only negative was the occasional noise from slamming doors and drawers. We complained and it seemed to reduce the frequency of the slamming. Never found this to be a problem on the other ships.

Plan on eating dinner at the buffet if you have a 10 plus hour tour. You may not want to shower and change clothes.
