Oceania Marina is an Oceania Class ship by Oceania Cruises. Built in 2011, she has very recently been refurbished.

Dan McMahon, one of our Six Star Cruises Concierge, recently went on-board Oceania Marina. Here he tells us what he thought of this ship.

The decor of this ship is very luxurious and modern, incorporating lots of marble and wood, with stunning crystal staircases. The subtle colours and attention to detail make for a very nice atmosphere on-board.

The food served on-board was delicious, and there’s a great variety with nine different places to eat including French, Asian, Italian and American Grill restaurants. The chefs spend around $40 per person, per day on ingredients, which is around twice what is spent by other cruise lines.

Activities on-board include art classes and culinary classes. There are lots of places to relax, including the library and the main bar which serves afternoon tea. There’s not much to do for families, and this ship is likely to be more popular with couples over 40.

According to Dan, cruises on this ship represent excellent value for money. Dining in all the different restaurants is included in the price, as is 24-hour room service. Unlimited soft drinks, bottled water, cappuccino, espresso, teas and juices are available free of charge. Alcoholic drinks start from around $6, with packages available too. The gratuities are $16 per person, per day. At most ports of call, a free shuttle is available to take you to the city or town centre.
