My wife and I were extremely pleased with our first experience with Oceania. We picked this particular cruise because we liked the itinerary and the fact that we had an interesting stop each day. We were not disappointed at all !!
The crew was extremely attentive and the food service was excellent variety options at all venus. The menus in the specialty restaurants certainly at the highest standards. I urge all travelers on Oceania to make their reservations for specialty restaurants long before departure to ensure you get what you want.
I would highly recommended the cooking classes that are highly interactive and well run.
Embarkation and disembarkation were smooth and clearly well rehearsed. Similarly, leaving the ship each day was highly efficient.
Our major disappointment was the entertainment that was clearly below the standards of a ship of this status. We have found other ships with better shopping and more active casinos, but those activities are not our particular interests.
The daily excursions were reasonable valued, but I would urge future passengers on this line (or any line line for that matter) to go to Trip Advisor and see what is available on your own as an alternative. We did that with our stop in Monaco and found an outstanding private guide for the activities that we wanted rather than take just what Oceania could offer us.

Cabin / Stateroom
The menu is the Grand Dining Room and the Terrace Cafe are identical. We found no reason to be served in the Grand Dining Room, and we found it easier and more relaxing to go for buffet in the Terrace Cafe.
