Oceania caters mostly to an older traveler. GREAT Food, great itineraries and tours, and enough entertainment and activities to make me continue to book on Oceania. Try to find a cabin in the middle of the ship if available. Book a larger cabin if you think you'll be cramped.

If you enjoy a lot of shore time and less cruising time. Many days the sailing didn't start until 11 pm , when many people are getting ready to sleep.

The bathrooms on this ship are a bit smaller than on other bigger ships. Make use of what little space there is by bringing magnets to hang up papers and declutter the desk areas. I also bring a multi-plug cord and a nightlight, so I can charge my devices during the night, and the nightlight provides enough light in the cabin to navigate in the dark. If you book a balcony room, enjoy the balcony! We travel with another couple and we spend a lot of time out there and, during this trip, we were pretty much the only ones out on our balcony. If you do travel with others and book adjoining cabins, you cannot have the steward open the door, unless you are parent/children. Apparently it is against their policies.

Bring reading material for the sea days

If you want to go on shore excursion, do not go on Oceania's shore excursions. Organize your shore excursions on your own, at every port ahead of time before boarding the ship through other reliable independent vendors/contractors (check for names on the internet).
