Fabulous cruise with Oceania. Wonderful experience.
Our Accommodations were excellent. I've never had a Stern cabin and it was the best for Alaska. Larger balcony and beautiful sunsets!
Oceania is a first class cruise line. The staff was so accommodating and helpful. Tours that were provided were well done and excellent. Food service was perfect. One evening was Greek night. My husband did not see the grilled shrimp and lamb chops that he loves. Within a few minutes they were on a plate and brought to him. The cruise director and his entertainment staff was terrific. All shows that they performed were wonderful. The entertainment staff was so friendly in their off hours. The magician/comedian was amazing. I liked when he included the children in his act. We also enjoyed the classical guitarist. Forgot to mention we are on the Nautica. I am sure we will book a future Oceania cruise!
Wonderful cruise. Ports were great. Accommodations were wonderful.
The cruise was great and the small ship was very enjoyable. Our cabin staff and dining staff were top notch. The food was delicious. Several excursions were canceled due to weather and not the fault of Oceania. The excursions were otherwise terrific.
Outstanding attention to detail. Staff focus on each guests satisfaction allows for individual attention. Destinations team on this cruise went above and beyond the call to ensure guest satisfaction with excursions
Oceania was wonderful, much better than expected.
Oceania provides quality service with excellent food, entertainment and wonderful staff. While the Marina needs to be upgraded, especially technologically, it is a ship worth traveling on
We have recently booked our 17th and 18th Oceania cruises and will be booking our 19th cruise within the next couple of weeks.
Overall the experience was excellent, The cuisine was of variable quality, for our taste. Ranging from poor to very good. Tha personnel is very well trained, attentive, and courteous.
The ship was small, but nice and clean. The staff was top notch. Our room was an inside room with a bunk bed for the third person. If this person was a child it would work, but not for an adult as the room is tiny and little clearance from the top bed to the ceiling! The food is very plentiful and quite delicious. Complaints, the entertainment is simplistic, commensurate with a small ship. Basically, one or two singers per night, and they often doubled up. One night was a Polynesian local group and it was very nice. The internet is terrible. When purchasing Olife you are given free internet. But, only one person in a room can use it at a time, and therefore no communication between each person. Also you can only text to a person with a similar phone as yours.
Definitely a wonderful cruise with terrific service!
I have requested Steve as our Travel Consultant for many years. In fact, He is assisting us for my April River cruise and May Alaska Cruise. He is amazingly helpful, courteous and responds to my emails quickly!!! He's the best and look forward to working with him on future vacations... thank you so much
We loved everything about our trip. The food and service is excellent on Oceania. We will continue to book with them in the future for all our cruises.
Cruise line is great
Oceania Cruises is consistently outstanding.
Oceania Sirena is remodeled and looks fantastic. All updates were a pleasant surprise as we liked the old style too.
This was a great cruise. Wine cruise. Special wine events and a wine tasting that was excellent. We will book this cruise again sometime.
It was a wonderful holiday cruise...enjoyed every minute!
We have used Affordable tours for several trips in the past and will continue to check with them first when we are looking to travel.
This is our third Oceania cruise and we have found that of all the cruise lines we have traveled they have the best cuisine and service.
Time in port wasd often too short, and some of the port selections were ok at best. To be fair, the weather was pretty bad which was a downer as well.
Great trip!! Nadia is wonderful!! Thank you!!
It wasn't easy finding a cruise line with extensive and well-balanced vegan fare but we found it (for my husband) in Oceania Cruise Lines. And the rest of the food selection (for me) definitely lived up to its high reputation. Happily, the cruise was also wonderful in other ways: quiet, comfortable interior stateroom; outstanding entertainment including Broadway-quality performers and a lovely (daily) string quartet and pianist; exceptional staff service and care that went way beyond the call of duty - and much more. When traveling with my husband, we will likely always book with Oceania.
Jody was Fabulous! He always kept us up to date and answered all my questions promptly. Very knowledgeable and professional.
The ship was going into dry dock to be refurbished after this cruise. There were issues with the ship that I believe made this necessary. The staff was wonderful. The food was excellent. The one issue was in the room where shows were presented was that the viewing was not tiered. If you weren't on the first row, you didn't see everything. This isn't being corrected in the refurbishment. Personally, I wouldn't book another cruise on this ship.
We always book our cruises with you. The personnel have changed but the service and value remain good.
Wonderful cruise experience!
Oceania is a great cruise line in almost all respects.
This was our first real "ocean" cruise; and Oceania was superb. For most travel experiences, we prefer River Cruising or Land Tours; and we are not interested in long, open ocean cruises with many days just at sea, especially with very large passenger counts. This cruise had about 550 passengers and, for the venue (Alaska/BC), the size was about right. Food was good, service was impeccable and the suites were VERY nice. Tours were good, but we were held to FOUR excursions (7 day cruise) due to travel between ports and very limited time (1/2 day only) in each port. IF we decide to cruise in smaller ocean areas (Baltic, Adriatic, etc.) we would definitely consider Oceania as our cruise line.
Oceania is a wonderful cruise line. We had a great time. The staff is friendly, and knowledgeable. The food is exceptional. Loved it.
Susan was accessible, courteous and always helpful. I intend to call her soon for future bookings.
Oceania is a deluxe cruise line. We loved our cabin and the amenities were all superior. Staff were outstanding and food was all delicious. It was a great vacation!
I will continue to recommend Oceania to friends and family. Based on our age demographic, I cannot imagine a cruise line that can exceed the hospitality, professionalism and politeness of the Oceania organization. The food is superb; matching fine restaurants worldwide.
Robert was terrific!
The primary destination for me on this cruise was Easter Island. It was a huge disappointment that we were not able to go ashore there because of large waves and swells. This was a crushing blow, and the operator did not warn of the possibility beforehand.
Jody provided excellant service and followup. Looking forward to continued relationship with Affordabletours.
We love Oceania Cruise Line. Once you've experienced the top notch service and the food, it's very hard to consider anything else. On this trans-Atlantic crossing, the captain had to skip the 2 stops in the Canary Islands because of a monster storm producing super high waves and he wasn't able to substitute any other places for those ports. Consequently we had several more sea days than originally expected; however, this can happen on any cruise.
Oceania's food, service and amenities were excellent once again.
The trip was with Oceania Cruise Line. This was our 4th trip with this cruise line, so we are very familiar with the services offered, etc. However, it appears one thing has changed which we did not care for. Specifically, the tours on our previous 3 cruises were much better -- we were taken to the places described in the description and we actually got a tour of that particular place inside and out This time, despite picking tours/excursions of the same caliber per the description in the catalog, we were taken to the location, shown the outside and given a brief explanation and were then given "free time" (20-40 minutes only) to use the toilets and shop for cheap souvenirs. This was VERY disappointing, especially since some of these locations really had a lot to see/offer on the inside. Of particular disappointment was the fact that we did NOT get to go inside La Sacrada Familia Church in Barcelona. Moreover, even if we had wanted to go inside, we only had about 40 minutes of free time before leaving that spot, so we could not have waited in line and toured the inside of the church. This "format" of the tours was consistent throughout the cruise, and was not something we enjoyed, nor did we feel we got our money's worth since the tours run $150-$250 per person.
Absolutely great experience, loved the owner's suite for our family (with nearby suite for our adult children). Stunning scenery/itinerary. Amazing food and wide range of excursions. Liked the size of the ship too; not too big.
Steve has always been gracious, extremely helpful and gives us ideas on the best ways to travel in the USA!!! I have already booked a cruises with Steve for 2019!! He's the best.
Oceania's air department leaves a lot to be desired. I understand they try to book flights at the lowest cost to them using prevailing industry standards. However, the routing can be quite an experience in itself. If one needs a better routing after the computer spits out the "world flight" itineary, then the passenger is left calling Oceania to pay a $175 change fee + any applicable cost increases the flight changes may require. In our case they had us flying west to east on the outbound leg. I was able to convince Oceania to make a more acceptable air change without any costs to me. We loved having a three night stay in port at St. Petersburg, Russia. Even so, we couldn't possibly do all the touring required to cover that city! Gotta go back someday! This was our sixth Oceania cruise. Their consistency in service, safety, food, excursion management and selection, like minded passenger load, ports of call, small ship size are all first class and second to none at their price point.
Thanks to Jason everything was in place and the trip went very, very smoothly.
Oceania kept all their promises. I needed special attention for severe food allergies and they went above and beyond what I expected. This makes travel possible for me in the future. Great company! The ship was beautiful and clean - the service above and beyond expectation.
Can't go wrong with Oceania.
Dawn, once again you booked us a winning vacation. All arrangements were perfect.
Oceania Riviera is very good, almost flawless, highly recommended
Everything was Ok, but internet service on Nautica was a little bit slow. Signal was poor and even WIFI calling was not available because of poor signal
