Great attention to detail and passenger comfort.

Oceania does a very good job of being a bit upscale without being stuffy. The specialty restaurants are just that "special".  The staff are all well trained and friendly. The cruise was on time to each port and  sail itself was very smooth.

We will choose Oceania in the future, they do it better than the cruise lines we have experienced in the past.

 In the future, I will choose to go to European cities during cooler weather.  July/Aug are too hot to fully enjoy the tours.

we enjoy making the most of each stop and had tours every day. After being up very early to start our tours, we wished that they could have been staggered during the week.
Having to be in lounge @8:15am each morning meant we didn't get to do anything in the evenings.
Ship Quality
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Due to the return flight, we had to be in the Lounge at 3:15am and waited at airport for over 2 hours. This impacted the entire last day. The choice of departure time for us and several others, was not in keeping with a luxury experience.
Cabin / Stateroom
Overall very nice with some minor issues. Balcony deck needed cleaning, drawers in bath vanity didn't work properly, carpet could have been cleaner. Cabin attendants were very good.


Enjoy dinner sitting on the deck of the Terrace Cafe during beautiful sail away from Montenegro!
