The Oceana is a lovely ship, nice size and good facilities.

The cabin was nice, and the steward friendly and always there for us if we needed him.

We found the rest of the staff the same. On two occasions whilst queuing for the Ligurian Restaurant the restaurant manager found us and offered us a table for 2 in the Adriatic to save waiting which we really appreciated although we did find the menu a bit ordinary apart from formal nights when they offered a Pierre White menu which was lovely. We did eat mainly in the Café Jardin for breakfast, lunch and evening meal which we found excellent. The menu, service, location was brilliant. We also ate in the Beach House, this was Horizon Grill but changed into Beach House with a new menu during the cruise. This was also excellent, good choice on the menu, especially for me as I don’t eat any meat. The problem was again the heat it was so warm and humid in the evenings it made it uncomfortable to sit and eat outside but it was lovely and a nice location. We only ate in the buffet once, on swap over day this is only restaurant available to eat breakfast in after 9.30 but we did not enjoy it. The hot food was cool and the cold food warm, very busy, unable to find a clean table and we walked around for ages eventually having to go outside to eat, not for us.

Evening entertainment was very good and varied. Comedians, magicians, soul singers and the headliners group were excellent. We then usually ended up in Magnums the martini bar which became out favourite. Sam the bar tender was so good he could make any cocktail, martini you asked for. The décor, location and atmosphere was excellent. Monte Carlo casino was also one of our favourites, nice and bright décor, roomy and if you wanted to play the tables you could but there was also plenty of seats available for those just wanting to watch or sit and relax.

We did go into Le Club (nightclub) a few times, that’s where we found all the teens congregated, a bit like a youth club. We did enjoy it in there with friends but sometimes found it hard to get a seat anywhere and service was slow as busy.
