We chose this cruise because of the Asia Itinerary On the positive side it is amazing as to how the crew expertly handles all the various countries seemingly complicated immigration requirements and inspections. The cruise did not get off to a good start after a long flight to Shanghai the transfer from airport to ship was pretty disorganized When arriving at the ship we were required to fill out Jaanese and more Chinese immigration forms in the freezing cold When then learned that the Shanghai tour had been moved to an unearthly hour earlier We were already well passed any cancellation time so we just did not go as we were wiped from all the going on the get on the ship The dining was as good as always except for a few minor issues We have breakfast in the room on tour days.On several than is more than one the breakfast was not correct to the point when we ordered 2 breakfast we received one The lectures were excellent and informative The entertainment was inconsistent ranging from very good to lame but it was less than the previous cruises The tours were a function of our tour guides ranging from excellent to very poor Bottom line we did book another Oceania cruise for 2018

A small step down from our previous 9 Oceania trips
