As for myself, among maritime climates I prefer the cooler Cfc climates. My favorites among maritime climates would be these, if the 0C isotherm is used to delineate them:

Braemar, Scotland
Port Walter, Alaska
Unalaska, Alaska

If we can go down to -3C, then I like these:

Reykjavik, Iceland
Kodiak, Alaska
BodÝ, Norway

I like the warmer oceanic climates in general, one of my favorites. The southern hemisphere seems to have the best ones:

Mar de Plata is decent:

Mar del Plata - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

so is this one:

Tauranga - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Though wikipedia labels it subtropical, which it is in a way.

SophieLL might fall under the mild coolness category rather than mild warmth, it's hard to tell.

So far I like Port Elizabeth the most, though the moniker "Windy City" is a bit discouraging.

For a warmer Cfb, Auckland looks very nice:

The Southern Hemisphere has some awesome oceanic climates.. it probably is due to the fact that most of the temperate latitudes in the Southern Hemisphere are ocean which is fantastic.. no extreme cold snaps like the northern hemisphere

Yep. Even Melbourne is quite decent for an oceanic climate.

The definition of oceanic/ maritime is questionable, Port Elizabeth is subtropical in many definitions.
If one looks at purely Oceanic (not mild Mediterranean or mild desert), then some subtropical highland places here, like Toowoomba, fair well.
Wollongong, just south of Sydney, on the NSW coast would be the limit of coastal oceanic climates here, before it becomes humid subtropical.

I would say that classic temperate oceanic climates have a warmest month mean of less than 20 C / 68 F and coldest month mean of more than 0 C / 32 F.
