      Nor us Annette.
      Have been on Oceana 3 times, but not for a while.
      Seems ages ago from you booking it, but it soon comes round. I still get a bit uptight when it's only a few weeks to go.
      Have a wonderful cruise and most of all go with the intention of ENJOYING it.

        we had our first cruise on Oceana 2 weeks Med cruise in October and after reading some of the reviews on here we were apprehensive but were not disappointed yes its true there are the odd rust spots but its a ship sailing in all weathers every day of the year so you can expect it but believe me you will have a great time

                Annette- I just love your excitement!
                Are you leaving from Southampton?- because it will be chilly that first evening and all the next day, until you've dropped far enough south. The ship will be lovely and warm inside, but take some cardigans and wraps, as the dining room air con might be a little chilly for your mum after you've been sitting for a while- I sometimes find theatres on ships the same.
                Have a wonderful time, and report back to us!
