Review summary

Overall, a wonderful cruise experience. Oceania has a reputation for fine food and they, absolutely, did not disappoint. From the buffet and grill to the main dining room and specialty restaurants, the food and service were exceptional. In the food category, there is one area which could be improved - providing egg dishes for breakfast. The Waves Bar is, by and far, the fun bar on the ship. On the negative side, entertainment was lacking and mainly average. The schedule for the piano player, Bobby, should be examined. He started and played through early dining. Then he was on break until 10:15 PM which conflicted with the main show of the evening. The cooking class was a great experience.
