This was our first ever cruise and we did not want to cruise with a large number of passengers. Oceania was highly recommended by friends so we took a chance.  We were not disappointed. Outstanding service, great accommodations, world class cuisine, friendly and helpful staff all created a relaxed and fun atmosphere. The ships facilities were first class all the way, from the library, pool, various dining areas and bars, each presented a venue in which to enjoy your activity. We have already booked another cruise with Oceania.Love

Loved having the veranda. Room attendants were always ready to assist in supporting our requests. Plenty of room for all our clothes.

Enjoy a game of Shuffleboard, putt putt golf or croquet in the early evening.
