I figured if anybody would know the answer to this question, it would you guys! Anybody ever cruise on Oceania Cruises? What are they like? I won the 14 day cruise (same contest that's on Cruisemates) from Cruise411 and I can't find alot about them.
NAVIGATOR OF THE SEAS
They are fantastic. I went on a cruise last summer and I am going again this summer to the Baltic. They acquired two of the old Renaissance ships, with nearly the same decor (new beds).
They have 4 restaurants on board (for 600 passengers). The food is excellent.
They spend a LOT of time in port. On our 12 day cruise we only have 2 sea days, They do a lot of overnight stays. We have 3 full days in St Petersburg.
They consider themselves to be in the luxury category, but they are not exactly like other lux ships. The cabins tend to be a little smaller, and there is not a lot in terms of onboard activities. Entertainment is at a minimum, which in my opinion is fine because they give you so many evenings in port. They do have a great computer program if you want to take classes, etc.
The focus is on good food, small ship convenience and excellent destinations at a respectable price.
I am the editor, but I also speculate, ask questions and play devil's advocate. I reserve the right to change my mind.
ok Paul, then I have a couple more questions. Ever been on the Exotic Caribeean cruise with them (that time of year is the only time we can go)? Our ports aren't overnight except for Costa Rica. Secondly, it says we arrive back in Miami at 12 am. We don't get off the ship then do we?
