Unbelievably ordinary.Tired ship and sub standard verandah suite bathroom.Food quality good but progressively worse since our first of three oceania cruises a few years ago.

The ship is old so layout is poor and claustrophobic.Made worse by clising pool bar and outside grill early so one had to go inside.

Confused staff in restuarants and excursion desks and ridiculously over priced tours.

Specialty dining venues (Polo and Toscana) are snobby and Polo Grill no better than anywhere else.

Wine prices excessively high.

Oceania is NOT a luxury line and all the hype about its food is both overrated and no better than a host of other lines.Thanks.We will stick with Seabourn.

Average food only.Over sold.

Nice cabin but bathroom was a disgrace and tired.

Average.Cruise Director was weak and ineffectual.

Take plenty of money to buy the tours. Do your own if possible.

Embarked LA and two beach resorts in Mexico.Onto Central America.Puerti Quetzal in Nicaragua is a waste of time as is Costa Rica unless you get out into the jungles.Guatemala is rough and tough and only the rural areas worth seeing.Panama transit is interesting.Columbia also a dangerous place but Cartagena tour was good.Home to Miami.
