Oceania Marina

4.6/5 |
Marina blends sophistication with a contemporary flair to create a casually elegant ambiance. From the sparkling Lalique Grand Staircase to the stunning Owner's Suites furnished in Ralph Lauren Home, designer touches are everywhere, highlighting the finest residential design and furnishings. More than anything, Marina personifies the Oceania Cruises experience.

Intimate and luxurious, Marina retains the same warmth and charm of her acclaimed consorts Regatta, Insignia, Nautica, and Sirena. While the country club casual ambiance and level of personalized service remain the same, Marina offers even more choice and some enticing new amenities. Designed for epicureans and travel connoisseurs, Marina offers guests multiple dining venues, of which six are open-seating gourmet restaurants with no surcharge. La Reserve offers enlightening seminars, tastings, and gourmet food pairings. The Culinary Center is the only hands-on cooking school at sea, featuring a range of enriching cooking classes by master chefs. Similarly, talented artists-in-residence offer step-by-step instruction in arts and crafts in Artist Loft enrichment center. Baristas, the signature coffee bar, serves up illy? espresso and coffee and freshly made pastries. Intimate lounges abound. Accommodations in every category are incredibly spacious, especially with regard to the lavish bathrooms.

Yet remarkably, with so many additions, the onboard ambiance and experience remains comfortably familiar. Oceania Cruises has retained everything guests adore about their ships and raised the bar even higher.

Please note some ports of call may not be suitable for guests with limited mobility and in such cases, may disallow debarkation with a wheelchair or motorized scooter or for any individual with limited mobility. Oceania Cruises is unable to accommodate women past their sixth month of pregnancy. Oceania Cruises has the right to refuse or revoke passage to anyone who, in its judgment, is in a physical, mental or emotional condition unfit for travel or whose comfort onboard may be compromised due to situations beyond the care that can be provided by Oceania Cruises.

    Wheelchair Assistance

    If a guest needs wheelchair assistance at embarkation and debarkation, the request must be communicated prior to departure so appropriate arrangements for assistance can be made. If a guest is requesting wheelchair assistance at the airport, they must contact the airline directly.

    Oxygen

    Oceania Cruises does not provide oxygen for guests. If a guest requires oxygen, they will need to bring it on board with them. The guest may contact a supply company that will deliver it to the ship for them. Oceania will need to know how many containers, what size they are, and the type. Liquid oxygen is not allowed on board Oceania ships at any time. If the guest needs oxygen for their flights, they will need to arrange it directly with the airline.

Shaking off a little Rust

| Lisbon, Porto, Ferrol, Bilbao, Bordeaux, Brest, St. Melo, Southampton
Itinerary was a mixed bag with wonderful start in Lisbon and Porto as well as Bordeaux, Bilbao and St. Melo.. Ferrol and Brest were somewhat lacking in interest.

Marina

| Mediterranean
We would definitely use Oceania again, but we would book our own tours thru the internet. We used Viator in Barcelona and found it very enjoyable at a reasonable price. Many passengers on the ship booked their tours online. I think this may be a new trend. The 4 specialty restaurants were wonderful.

Luxury as advertised

| Europe
Marina is new and beautiful! The ship is not meant for children and there is no children's programming. The public rooms are well appointed and comfortable. Our cabin, a Vista Suite, was very roomy, well laid out and had the luxury appointments one would expect for the price paid and the category of accommodation. The cabin was worth the fare paid. The service in our cabin by our butler was impeccable. The service by the remainder of the crew was also top notch. The food was perfect in every way. The four specialty restaurants, Polo Grill, Jacques, Red Ginger and Toscana were each charming in their own way and the service in each was quite good. The only "up-charge" restaurant, La Reserve, features a set seven course menu with each course paired to a wine. if you enjoy this type of fine dining then the additional charge is well worth it. Book La Reserve early since they only seat 24 guests per night. The only draw back was the shore excursions which are expensive and overall not a good value for the money paid. You will do better to book your own excursions in major ports and/or do self guided tours in the smaller ports. we were so busy touring and dining that we didn't have time for any of the entertainment, but we were told by others that we met on board that it was not particularly memorable. While we didn't use it, we were given a tour of the Canyon Ranch Spa which looked rather attractive and well equipped.

Southernmost Wonders

| Argentina, Falkland Islands and Chile
Very remote part of the world. Weather distracted from the cruise but we were told that that was unusual.

Baltic Cruise

| Copenhagen, Berlin, Klaipeda, Riga, Helsinki, St. Petersburg, Tallin and Stockholm
Overall the cruise was very enjoyable and relaxing. My Travel Agency is extremely professional in their approach and took care of all the details for us.

Mediterranean Wine Cruise

| Barcelona, Marseille, Monaco, Florence, Rome, Sorrento, Dubrovnik, Slovenia, Venice
Just Fabulous

Good Sailing

| Baltic and Scandinavian countries
Enjoyed this 12 day cruise very much. Had to take an extra sea day because it is a busy cruise.

Cruising the Baltic

| Baltic Sea
Oceania tends to stop at more ports than other cruises. The smaller ports were nice recovery ports!

Great Cruise Itinerary and Execution

| Lisbon, Portugal; Gibraltar; Tangier, Morocco; Malaga, Valencia and Barcelona , Spain; Marseille and Cannes, France; Monaco; and Livorno and Civitavecchia, italy
Not my fanciest cruise, but one of the best.

Fantastic Cruising

| Boston, Bar Harbor ME, Halifax, Azores, Madeira, Lisbon
This was our fourth cruise on Oceania Marina. We always enjoy this ship. After cruise ended May 28, Marina will be in dry dock for refurbishing. The ship is just over five years old and not nearly as warn as other cruise ship we have experienced. We look forward to sailing again on Marina September 3, 2016 and look forward to enjoying the updated interiors. On our recent cruise we booked a penthouse suite and enjoyed excellent cabin/butler service.

Great Down Under Cruising

| Australia and New Zealand
The staff and level of service were suberb. And once again the quality and presentation of the food was fantastic. Having two additional specialtiy restuarants was a nice addition. It was our first time on the larger Oceania ship and we did not feel like there were more people on the boat. We liked having the larger stateroom too. Privee is a fun addition as well.

Lap of luxury

| Copenhagen, Denmark; Rostock , (formerly East) Germany; Riga, Latvia; Talinn, Estonia; Lithuania; St. Persburg, Russia; Helsinki. Finland; Stockholm, Sweden
We thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of this trip and would not hesitate to recommend it. We loved the culinary oriented tours as they showed a side of the towns that you would never see otherwise. This is a great diversion if you are tired of seeing castles and churches. The chef on our boat was great!!!! We loved seeing the countries formerly under Soviet control. Their stories are palpable, and they value their independence like you cannot believe.

Bucket list cruise

| Kristiansand Oslo Copenhagen Warnemunde Visby Helsinki St. Petersburg Estonia Stockholm
This cruise was everything I could have asked for. We even had great weather and calm seas.

Baltic Cruise on the Marina

| Helsinki, St. Petersburg, Tallinn, Warnem?nde
We recently did a Baltic cruise on the Oceania Marina and the overall feeling we had was that it was outstanding. We will do another Oceania cruise in 2021. The size of the ship was perfect. We kept saying how great the food was and how customer focused the ship staff was.

Thoroughly Enjoyable Cruise

| Baltic Sea
Last year we experienced problems on Oceania's Regatta, so we were hesitant to sail with them again. However, since we'd enjoyed prior cruises with Oceania, we decided to give them one more chance. We're glad we did. Our Baltic Sea cruise on Marina provided smooth sailing in every respect.

Marina experience.

| NewZealand,new caledonia,Samoa,Fiji,Tahiti islands.
We liked the smaller ship as getting on and off was easier. The passenger makeup on this cruise was not the usual happy crowd and we like more to do in the evenings so would not choose Oceana again.

Lima to NYC

| Peru to New York
Wait-staff service not as attentive as on previous Oceania ships but overall trip on Marina was delightful. Having a bath tub and a separate shower was the best advantage of being on Oceania's larger ships.

Great trip

| Baltic States
My only complaints are there really is no free air fair. Internet should be included in price. Overall, everything was excellent

Oceania Marina

| TransAtlantic: New York to London
Ship is being maintained very well. Service is extraordinary and the food is wonderful. The best ice cream at sea.

First cruise

| South America
Excellent way to access remote destinations. Excellent accommodations and support for excursions. Did not utilize many entertainment or shipboard activities as more interested in sights.

Family Trip to Spain

| 8 days
This was the second sailing on Oceania for four of us and the first for two. We all agreed that any future sailing will be on Oceania. Absolutely the BEST cruise line we all have experienced. 

Rome to Venice 9/24 to 10/4

| Rome, Sorrento/Capri, Amalfi/Positano, Taormina (Sicily), Argostoli (Greece), Kotor (Montenegro), Zadar (Croatia), Ravenna (Italy), Koper (Slovenia), Venice (Italy)
Destinations that surprised us with their beauty and hospitality were Argostoli, Greece; Kotor, Montenegro; and the town of Piran, near Koper, Slovenia.

Marina is the best!

| Marquesas Islands, French Polynesia
Perfect sized, great ports of call, excellent food

South Seas for 17 days

| New Zealand, Samoa, Tahitian Islands
The band musicians on board were talented, but played for 30-45 minutes and left. Piano player in Martinis Bar very boring (think "elevator music"). Shows in the showroom were "hit and miss". Onboard dancers and singers were poor. Entertainment was the only disappointment, but it was kind of a big deal for me.

Trip to Israel

| Rome, Cyprus, Haifa, Athens
We had such a great time! Played ping pong, mini golf, and shuffleboard a lot! Great variety of restaurants without “extra charge”. Loved that there were no “formal” nights, just “country club” attire. Nice.

Fantastic Ship

| Norway, Denmark, Germany, (Visby) Sweden, Finland, St Petersburg (2 day), Estonia & (Stockholm) Sweden
We sailed on Marina on the Baltic Bliss. The ports were all fantastic. The food was fabulous. We ate in the four Specialty Dining rooms and they were also excellent, as was the service. Main dining room was great. The Buffett area was a challenge as they have to serve you the food and it is slow and disorganized for that reason. No cue lines caused people to get upset as others just cut in front of you. Waves grill was a great option for breakfast and lunch. We loved there was no push to sale you drink package or photography, something that has gotten annoying on other cruise lines. We usually sail Royal Caribbean and Celebrity, and this was for sure a higher class ship. Activities were good. Lots of places to sit and read, or sit and visit with others. We had a extended balcony cabin which we loved and used. The cabin had plenty of storage areas. The bathroom was very large and loved the bathtub/shower along with another shower. The bed was extremely comfortable.

great experience

| Amsterdam to Barcelona
In future, Oceania should consider training less people at a time. All check in personnel were in experienced. Should have had experienced person at their side watching til they felt they were okay with process. Consequently, check in process was quite slow.

Wonderful ship with marginal staff service

| Lisbon to London
Food and cuisine get high marks. Culinary class outstanding. Cleaning service very good & responsive. Food servers from cafe' to formal excellent. Sommeliers good over all. Some marginal in knowledge. Not excited about offering decanter for aged vintage wine. The ship appears to be understaff and some strategic personnel under trained. Previous Oceania cruises had higher level and smoother service. Smaller ( 800 ) Oceania ship maybe a better choice in the future. Marina is such a beautiful ship but not properly staffed. Holland America counter part to our butler on this trip is what we gage our evaluation. HA -9.5 O-4. From cuisine reservations to excursion reservations to evening canapés too many errors made. HA was very visible and accessible. O was impossible to find at times and very tardy in responding to messages left for him. We give up at the end and start to service ourselves to maximize our experience on the cruise.

The sunny Baltic

| Baltic
The title is true as we had the Best weather possible. The stops were wonderful but then much too short, the only drawback. Easy trip in that everywhere we monolinguistic travellers went everyone spoke English and not only was the Euro accepted but also USD, even in Russia. Friendly people everywhere we went. Ship's procedures were extremely efficient. We would not use their air program again as they did not allot enough time between flights for our luggage to arrive with us. It took two and a half days to find and deliver. Also I asked our agent if we could upgrade and we were told no although at the airport it was no problem and inexpensive. ???

Great Trip

| Baltic and North Seas - Copenhagen, Helsinki, St Petersburg, Tallinn, Stockholm, Warnemunde (Berlin), Skagen (Denmark), Oslo, Amsterdam
This was our second cruise - and it was so much better. Oceania treats their guests very well. Terrace Café food was always fresh and often local. Waves extended hours allowed us to eat when we were hungry. Polo Grill food and service were excellent. Staff very personable, they appear to enjoy their roles. Most of the staff had been with the company for several years. Plenty of space to sit, read, or doze in library. Wide variety of reading material. Ports of call were well selected. We chose this cruise because it offered 2 days in St. Petersburg. Every port offered something unique. Housekeeping persisted in cleaning the room 3 times per day - even calling us when the "Privacy Please" card was posted outside the door for more than a few hours. Sometimes we just wanted to relax in the stateroom.

Never disappoints

| South Pacific (French Polynesia)
Seventh voyage for us on Marina (or Riviera). Ship is still in great shape and its upkeep is noticeable. Food quality and service is superb. Excursions are still grossly overpriced and for some reason, poolside music, etc. is missing. Seems to me that on this voyage (12 nights in South Pacific) that we would have had more entertainment around pool given the heat and the attendance in the afternoon. All in all, an A+ rating.

Oceania Cruises are the only way to sail !!!

1. they only wi-fi'd to a single satellite so capacity is limited to one cabin occupant at a time, etc. very inconvenient 2. they said they had exhausted all euros from last cruise. but they never replaced them or made norwegian or danish krone available; even a limited amount so people could get into town or dine in town would have been helpful. we came prepared, but service is the name of the game. 3.ship is a cash free environment; laundry should be built into the price. shouldn't have coin machines. 4. probably 90% of people taking excursions had one on one conversations to clarify how the boarding process worked thereby slowing down the procedure. they should just publish the steps in the bulletin or put signage up in marina lounge; or project it on a screen to avoid the delays. Amsterdam was skipped due to sea conditions. Bremerhavn was substituted. Kristiansand and Gothenberg are weak ports for sightseeing; the others are strong; They should bring back Hagen-Daz ice cream. They used to feature it. The Baristas are located 14th floor forward. They should be down on deck five or six. They should have a wide variety of pastries and sandwiches as other ships do. Unimpressed with the Barista section. Canyon Spa services were excellent. Their billing was not so good. They overcharged for one procedure. Then on another day they mistakenly included a manicure in the billing for a pedicure only. Once I can understand. Twice; something is going on. Kim,The Spa, Manager was very helpful, checked the records carefully, and made the proper adjustments. Still an inconvenience.

Cruise of French Polynesia

| French Polynesia (Tahiti, Bora Bora, Moorea, Raiatea, Nuku Hiva, Rangiroa)
The islands of French Polynesia are beautiful, lush and green. The color of the South Pacific is indescribable. The different hues of blue seem unreal. Everything looks like a painting. The French Polynesian people were friendly and easy going. The only downside was the heat and humidity. Of course being summer in the Southern Hemisphere and being near the equator explains the climate. The ship experience was excellent.

Oceania Viking Trails

| Baltic Countries
The Food was very special and the service in the restaurants and in the stateroom was excellent. The entire Oceania cruise was special and I would use them again without hesitation.

Amazing Vacation with Friends!

| Mediterranean - Rome, Italy, France, Monaco and Spain
Had an amazing time, start to finish!

Oceania Marina October 2015

| Venice Croatia Montenegro Greece Messina Amalfi Coast Florence Rome Monte Carlo Nice
Most food was excellent. The meat/main courses in almost all restaurants (except for Terrace Cafe ) although cooked as requested was dry and tough as though it had been cooked hours before and left standing--no juices at all--- except for the meat cooked on the grill right in front of you at Terrace Cafe and Kobe burger, ahi steak cooked on the spot at Waves...killer! Side dishes and appetizers were of very good quality.

Oceania Marina Mediterranean Cruise

| Mediterranean Coast - France & Italy
The Oceania Marina cruise was wonderful. I have been on 7 prior cruises and by far Oceania exceeded my cruise expectations and was the "best cruise ever". Thank you to Oceania!!

Baltic Cruise

| We went to eleven countries in the Baltic region.
After taking 13 tours in our 11 ports of call, we only had one tour guide that was not terrific. It was with one of the ships excursions. The tours we took with Shore Trips were great. We were introducing two couples to Oceania and they were very pleased with the overall experience. I can not wait until our next cruise with Oceania.

Great Ship

| Canada, Ireland , France, UK
This was truly an adventure. Because of a huge storm, we had extra days at sea and woke up one day to find the decks covered with snow! Some of the crew made creative snowmen. Despite the weather, being on Marina is always an enjoyable and unforgettable experience. Best cuisine at sea and incomparable service.

Baltic Bliss, London to Stockholm

| London,Oslo, Copenhagen, Visby, Tallin, St. Petersburg, Helsinki and Stockholm
Very nice ship, 4 specialty restaurants and Spa

Iberian Quest = Iberian Dream

| Lisbon, Spain, French Riviera, Monaco.
Oceania was superb, with the cruise starting in Lisbon and ending in Monte Carlo. I can't stress enough how highly enjoyable this cruise was, allowing us exposure to cultural sites along the Iberian coast and throughout the cote d'azure. We relaxed and basically reset. Pick your tours wisely and early, you won't regret it. In Monte Carlo I did for a minute fantasize myself as a British Secret agent.

Cruise Performance

| Ireland, Scotland, Wales, UK
Would not recommend this itinerary due to the low quality of the shore excursions and high prices. Would highly recommend the Marina ship.

Fabulous cruise

| Buenos aires to Valapariso
My travel agent is fabulous who put our South American trip together for the Katzman/ Greenwall family for 7 persons with very little notice.

Australia and New Zealand

| Australia and New Zealand
Beautiful ship, outstanding services and food. Just need FREE wifi and it would be perfect.

Ten Glorious Days

| Monaco, Italy, France and Spain.
This was a GREAT cruise. The ports were terrific. The staff was very friendly. I could get spoiled.

Baltic Sea Cruise

| Copenhagen, Lithuania, Helsinki, St. Petersburg, Stockholm
We were traveling with a group of 8, and one couple had a change in time for one of their shore excursions. There was no advance notice (email) BEFORE the trip for this change and while we are asked to check the times after arriving on the ship, I believe this change should be brought to their attention in advance or as soon as possible. By the time they noticed the change in time, it was too late and they lost out on their excursion. On the positive side, the food was great and staff, friendly and helpful. Our staterooms were spacious and was impressed with the efficiency of the bathrooms. I would recommend Oceania's Marina to anyone who likes the smaller size ship for its atmosphere and personal service.

Baltic Cruise

| Helsinki, St. Petersburg, tallen,klaipeda,gdansk,berlin,copenhagen,oslo,amsterdam
Marina doesn't have loads of suites so they have to be reserved over a year in advance, which isn't always possible. The destination desk on the ship only has employees at the desk certain hours which can be really annoying if you need to take care of something. Entertainment was better than expected. Needed to see ship doctor for something minor and the charge for that was way out of line, much too high.

The Oceania-Class Marina represents an evolution of the line’s extremely popular Regatta-Class ships. Since the inception of Oceania Cruises, our ships have delivered an unparalleled onboard experience. So many of the indulgences are a direct result of our ships’ ideal mid-size, a tradition that Marina will proudly continue, but in an even more refined incarnation. She personifies the Oceania experience and then some.

While larger than her consorts Regatta, Insignia and Nautica, Marina remains comfortably mid-size, adroitly utilizing the additional space for even greater amenities. She rewards guests with our signature “finest cuisine at sea” in six restaurants, including two new gourmet venues — Jacques and Red Ginger. Her new La Reserve holds enlightening wine and food pairings. For special coffees and snacks, there is Baristas Coffee Bar. The new Bon Appétit Culinary Center offers hands-on cooking instruction under the guidance of master chefs. Similarly, artists-in-residence teach fine arts in Artist Loft, a new enrichment center. Intimate lounges abound. Accommodations in every category are incredibly spacious, especially with regard to the lavish bathrooms.

Yet remarkably, with so many additions, the onboard ambiance and experience remains comfortably familiar. We have retained everything guests adore about our ships and raised the bar ever higher.
