We sailed from Barcelona on a 14 day cruise finishing in Trieste after the authorities denied entry to Venice.
The check in at the port was extremely efficient and friendly coupled with a Covid test and we were soon on board Marina, our home for the next two weeks. We were immediately struck by it's understated elegance and class and nothing on the cruise changed that first impression.
The restaurants on board, both main and the four speciality were all excellent with the food being diverse and superb.
The staff throughout the ship were outstanding, being efficient, polite, funny and helpful, all totally wonderful.
All the Covid protocols were handled well and the testing on board efficient and complimentary ----- a lesson to other companies who are charging !
The excursions were all handled expertly with very knowledgeable guides, with exit and entry to the ship seamless.
The entertainment was a little understated, with not much of it, but, what there was, was good.
It was a great cruise on a lovely ship with a great crew and our cabin and balcony was very comfortable and welcoming. Oceania nearly lost two pillows from the cabin, but my jumper was full anyway.
This cruise company is a little more expensive than the norm, but you do get what you pay for and I begrudge not a penny.
All the arrangements were made through George at Cruise U.K. and I think we had a good relationship with an efficient and charming man.
We would definitely sail with Oceania again and have no hesitation in praising them. We would probably be put off by having to fly. If the airlines and airports were as efficient as the ships and ports it would be a different story..
Well done Cruise U.K., Oceania and the Marina and its crew, you gave us a 5 Star cruise.
