For adults, plenty of bars, restaurants, shops, lounges and a nightclub provide options for distraction. And Oceana does offer a high-quality cruise -- particularly in food and wine -- for a reasonable price. Inclusive fare in the main dining room is consistently solid, and Cafe Jardin, a for-fee bistro created by celebrity chef Marco Pierre White, is a standout. The wine list also features English wines, both sparkling and still. Oceana has four pools two in the middle and one at either end , all open to the elements, and five whirlpools.
A small sports court occupies the area near the funnel, with a couple of basketball hoops and equipment for cricket and football. Launched in , the ship went into dry dock in November for a multimillion-pound refurbishment.
The main changes were in the Plaza, the ship's buffet, which has received new carpets, tiling, chairs and banquette seating, as well as draught lager; the Terrace Bar area, boasting three refurbished hot tubs and a canopy to provide shade on sunny days; and Horizon Grill, which now also houses the Street Food Kitchen, offering for-fee nibbles throughout the day. Additionally, new carpeting and furniture were added throughout many of the public spaces, and suites were made over with new curtains, bed runners, cushions, valances, headboards and lamps.
The passenger mix is almost exclusively British. The average age increases with longer itineraries. The average age on short cruises of a week or less is 50, but it rises to 60 for two-week sailings and 70 for sailings of three weeks or more. There are typically two formal nights per week; the rest of the time smart casual is the order of the day. On formal nights, dinner jackets or dark suits are the required attire for men, and evening or cocktail dresses are appropriate for women.
Children are welcome to dress up as well, but smart casual is allowed for youngsters on formal nights. Dress codes apply throughout the ship after 6 p. Unlike on U. Share Facebook Pinterest Twitter.
