Beverly and Mom Oceania Sirena 2023I had the pleasure to cruise with my Mom (89) for a 12 day holiday sailing to the Caribbean on the Oceania Sirena, roundtrip Miami from Dec 22, 2023 - Jan 3, 2024.

This small "old Renaissance" R class// old Ocean and Tahitian Princess ship, was built in 1999 and last refurbished in 2019. Sister ships are the Insignia, Regatta & Nautica. Sirena holds 670 passengers but only 654 guests were onboard for this sailing. Tonnage is 30,277 so it's a small & intimate ship.
Very clean and nicely decorated. Oceania is considered a Premium line class. She has only 26 inside cabins and 308 outside cabins. We were in a concierge veranda but there is no dedicated concierge lounge due to her small size.

There are 3 restaurants onboard:
The Grand Dining Room
Specialty restaurants: Red Ginger & Tuscan Steak
They also have the Wave Terrace for al fresco buffet dining

VIP Chef Jacques Pepin and family was onboard this sailing and he gave cooking demonstrations to the guests and they had book signings onboard, with books offered in the gift shop.
NOTE: He is Oceania Cruises' Executive Culinary Director *AND* His daughter Claudine Pepin serves as the godmother of this ship!

The itinerary was busy:

They offer a very nice Aquamar Spa and concierge level (and up) which offers unlimited access to the Aquamar Spa Terrace with Thalassotherapy pool . I had a few spa treatments and spent every afternoon there! Quite lovely! There are minimal activities onboard during port days, but I can say it was relaxing and we DID enjoy our getaway and got plenty of Vitamin "Sea”. This is a picture of us celebrating New Year’s Eve!
