Review summary

This was our 1st Oceania cruise and we loved it. The ship was much smaller than we have sailed on in the past and I liked it. Our balcony stateroom was spacious and well appointed. Lastly, the food was excellent. My wife must have a gluten free diet and she ate like a queen. She claimed they have the best GF bread she has ever tasted. We took the wine with dinner package which was great for us. On a downside, the nightly entertainment is truly lacking. Two nights they had a concert pianist and another a flute player. They also had 2 movie nights which no one attended (no surprise there!).

The ship docked at 4:00 PM so there was very little time to visit Lisbon.
