Do not forget that Oceania prices include air & taxes in there bottom line
as long as you are comparing apples to apples Azamara is now almost as much as Oceania.
Oceania has no charge for the specialty dining rooms so that is a bonus
Boring is subjective
We do not need to be entertained 24/7 so the small ships are perfect for us
Good thing there are so many choices
