The Trip From Hell

Our 16 day cruise from Miami to San Francisco spent 88% of the time at sea, not at the destinations Spending $800+ per day on fine dining is not my idea of an enjoyable cruise. Destination Services were ...

The quality of the past has gone downhill -- there are better options.

We had previously cruised twice with Oceania and were quite satisfied. This time was a disaster! Half the crew didn't speak English so most of the service was poor. They lost our luggage on the ship and claimed ...
