Oceania Marina Cruise from Venice
The ship - fabulous. We loved stateroom 8001 which gave us a fantastic view. Fortunately, the sea was very calm. Not sure if it would have been such a good choice in bad weather. The stateroom itself was fantastic. Everything we needed and nothing we didn't. The bed was one of the most comfortable I have ever slept on and I would love if you could find out the manufacturers name for me.
All the amenities on board - first class all the way. We loved the library. Even though the ship was full we never felt crowded.
The food - very high quality in the specialty restaurants and the dining room. Room service was also wonderful. Our only suggestion - it would have been nice to have some local wines from Greece or the Balkans on the wine list.
The service - wonderful from the food services, to housekeeping to the restaurants. An amazing standard.
Excursions - we only took 2 because we are quite independent and rented cars in several of the ports we called. They were well organized and the guides were excellent. A little pricey, perhaps.
I only have only one complaint - in Venice other lines had provided transport into the city but Oceania did not. That was a hassle.
So, two very happy cruisers. We would definitely sail with Oceania Cruises again especially on the Marina. We would also definitely come back to you, Janet, as you were great to work with. We will also be recommending Oceania Cruises and Luxury Cruise Company to our friends.
Now - holiday over and back to work. But we have great memories and wonderful photographs!
