Cruise to Cuba by Bobleen

Verified Review

The cruise was as advertised. A second day in Santiago de Cuba in lieu of one of the stops in the Bahamas would have made for a better cruise.

South American Adventure to the End of the World by ghswartz214

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The single biggest factor for us was uncooperative weather and rough seas. It forced us indoors instead of being able to lounge on the deck. It resulted in overcrowding of the Terrace Café because no one wanted to eat outdoors. Some indoor activities were filled up before the scheduled times because being outdoors was not much of an option.

So Much Right, So Much Wrong by Jlsoftly

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

There was so much right and wrong about the cruise. When you can't use the toilet in your cabin and they can't get your wife's food correct, it spoils the whole cruise experience. Our previous experience on the Oceania Marina was entirely different. My final word for Oceania is this. Viking Ocean cruises is coming for you with a fleet a brand new ships and a base cabin that is better than this ship's veranda cabin. The days with you can compete with an outdated ship and an inferior cabin (bathroom) design ARE NUMBERED. The word is going to get out. A 'luxury cruiseline'. Not on this ship.

Last cruise on Oceania! by jtwhitlaw

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The tour office on the ship was unpleasant and Juan was particularly difficult. We were scheduled for 8 tours and only went on 4 one of which we paid extra. We lost money on cancelled tours and were under this ship's doctor to miss two others. The ship was under quarantine because of influenza and respiratory sickness. I recommended to the doctor that masks be provided to all passengers. Nothing happened!

Customer Service from and Oceania Awful - Food and Cabin Service Great - No Port Support by bdonato

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Called Oceania and I was yelled at. Called and had to deal with incompetence. The agent costs us about $2,000 because she did not know that we could have done our own air and gotten the $1,000 credit. Several other guests had the same issue.

Absolutely amazing. My only observation is that the ship dies out about 10pm after the show. I wish there was more late night activities and food service available.

Sirena Keeps Getting Better! by GeorgesMom

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

This was our second cruise aboard Sirena and not our last - we are so happy with the ship (and the company) that we have three more cruises scheduled over the next year and a half. This was our second Mediterranean cruise, selected for the ports and time of year, and we loved seeing a mix of old favorite ports and brand-new ones.

Great time - Oceania is luxury❤️ by bjszabo98

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Great time, good weather, fun time  snorkeling and good shopping ports. 

Food in the two private dining rooms was free and food was wonderful.

 Can have lobster and big scampi cooked for you every day in the buffet area. 

Would of liked to see more creame brûlée on the menu but that's because I don't like chocolate!

Beautiful smaller ship giving great luxury and ample room not to feel that you are surrounded with people. French Polynesia islands a delight to visit.

Had a great time. by johnfisher23112

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

Overall, the cruise was excellent, however, a few points reduced my score from a 5 to a 4. 

 

*  I think the ship should rethink stopping in Suva, Fiji, as we did not feel very safe in that port.  We were warned about this in "Currents," and also were warned about it by the bus driver taking us to town.  He said even catching a cab could be dangerous.  We went back to the port dock on his recommendation and booked an excursion there.

 

*  I would love to see less expensive excursion prices.  Many times you can get the same excursion at the port dock for a considerably cheaper price.

 

The service on the ship is excellent as well as the food.  We would definitely recommend this trip.

South Pacific Cruise by map2221

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

As for our Oceania cruise, this is the first time that we've cruised with this brand.  This cruise line is not of the quality to be classified as a luxury cruise liner.  I was told by several other passengers that this cruise line was bought out by another cruise line.  I personally do not intend to book with this cruise line again.  

Our cruise departed New Zealand and cruised through New Caledonia, Fiji, Samoa, American Samoa, Moorea, Bora Bora and Papette.  We felt that the tours operated for several of these cruise destinations were not what we expected; they fell short of the descriptions provided in the brochure.  One example is of a guide who tells how pretty the view is from a look out point as the driver proceeds to not stop.  This is not acceptable tour operator behavior.  The land tour operators are selected by Oceania and we expected better.

I would recommend this cruise to others if they didn't have 6 straight days of high winds, rain and rough seas and were able to go ashore.  I chose the wrong time of year.

Oceania's food iand service s always excellent

Tropical Fantasy comes alive by elv518

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The cruise was excellent except for a few minor glitches.  As usual, the food was wonderful., the staff were well trained and most hospitable.  My only negative comments had to do with most of the nightly shows.  In most cases, the production numbers were tired and trite.  The comedians were not funny.  At the end of the cruise, however, the talent improved greatly.  The Las Vegas singers,  the violinist were wonderful.  However, my biggest complaint is with the conclusion of the cruise.  We had to get off at 9 A.M.  WE had arrived at Tahiti the previous night, way too late for a tour.  Most planes didn't leave until midnight the day we arrived.  We learned about our flights about 6 weeks before we left.  We then had to make plans for our day in Tahiti.  WE decided to take a tour, and then go to the guides home to rest before being taken to the airport.  This was expensive, but necessary.  Those who opted for the cruises plans either stayed in an unairconditioned town hall. or a hotel that refused to let them use the pool.  Not a great way to conclude a trip.  Better planning is necessary, and giving people options about the last day earlier would have been helpful.

Sirena give away by cbolte3

Verified Review

Best Price Quarantee did not work! (Be glad to explain in detail. Should be quite embarrassing to Oceana.)

 

Sirena was truly exceptional. Apparently it will be a few years before its sister ships  are upgraded accordingly.

as usual the best part of an Oceana cruise is the staff, and the best meals are at Red Ginger. all else was very pleasant. particularly enjoyed the string quartet and the barista. our cabin staff was quite efficient and extremely cordial. we liked our stewardess Caroline.

That Perfect Combination of Relaxing and Fascinating by GeorgesMom

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

What a great way to see several different Central American countries without doing a road trip!  My second time through the canal, so that was a long (and wet) day, but like all our Oceania itineraries so far there were some gems (Cartagena, Corinto) and some interesting, glad I saw them but wouldn't necessarily go back ports (Costa Rica).  I can't say enough about the warm, helpful Oceania staff beginning with the cruise director (Dottie this time) - they seriously seem like family at the end of the voyage - and the food?  Seems to just get better and better each trip: we never eat desserts at home because they simply can't compare to Oceania's, and the beds are heaven at the end of each busy day.  We were leery of 5 sea days, but Dottie packed them with activities that sounded too fun to miss - and there's always the wonderful gym too.  Overall a fantastic experience, and of course we booked our next cruise while onboard.

Sirena is an Excellent Addition to the Fleet by mjslubbock

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The Sirena provides the same warm and welcoming atmosphere as the Regatta. The two new specialty restaurants are outstanding, especially Red Ginger. The Grand Dining Room's new approach to lunch is called Jacque's Bistro, but there isn't much different from before -- which is perfectly fine because both approaches to lunch result in great lunches.  The staff is friendly, competent, and the usual credit to themselves and their employer.  We have already planned to cruise again on the Sirena.
