Marina Cruise Review by John Nicholson
- Sail Date: June 2016
- Destination: Baltic Sea
- Cabin Type: Concierge Level
Internet Services worked 50 percent of the time at best. Continuous problems,
Few Real Solutions.
SHORE EXCURSIONS: We went to :
Paris, France OK but hurried, Bruges, Belgium Cancelled by Oceania - fought to get money back, NO Reason for Cancellation. Antwerpe, Belgium, Good Tour, informative.
Amsterdam, Netherlands, Fair Tour, Not outstanding, Guide went thru the motions. Hamburg, Germany, Good Tour, Informative, Colorful, Fair Guide. Kristianstand, Norway, Good Tour & Guide. Oslo, Norway Another Good Tour So-So Guide. Gothenburg, Sweden, Very Good Tour and seemingly interested Guide. 2 days in Copenhagen, Denmark, No Tours Available for Back to Back Cruisers, Oceania Dropped the Ball again. Not even helpful with information as to what to do or see on your own, Getting around town or anything. Helsingborg, Sweden, Not outstanding, Guide went thru the motions, Berlin, Germany, Good Tour, and Informative, Engaging Guide. Riga, Latvia, Another Good Tour, So-So Guide, Tallinn, Estonia, Tours were Poor at Best, watching movies of sites was not what I expected. Poor. 2 Days in St. Petersburg, Russia, Sites were interesting, Guide was Helpful, but Bus Driver was Rude and Uncooperative. While In St Petersburg, Russia, we went to the Ballet at the Hermitage. High School Students performance at best. Nice performance of Swan Lake, but NOT Real Ballet. Helsinki, Finland, Beautiful Sights, So-So Guide, More going thru the motions. Score out of 1 to 10, 4.5 at best, Stockholm, Sweden, Disembarkation, Spent One Night at a Hotel which Oceania offered, was Utter Chaos. Six Buses at one time, Luggage all over the Place, Oceania must Own part of the Hotel. Not Co-ordinated by Oceania at all. 300 people in the lobby at one time. Absolute Bedlam. More reasons NOT TO CHOOSE TO SAIL WITH Oceania. Your Dollar Spends better with other Cruise lines. Who also treat you like a Customer ! !
Crystal Cruises is far Superior in every way.
I would be hard pressed to openly sail with Oceania again. They owe me for a 19 day FAILED CRUISE. NOT WORTH THE MONEY ! !
