Does the Oceania price include airfare? Most of their cruises include air, and if that's the case, it's a great deal. Also, non-alcohol beverages are included on O and their specialty restaurants...

Not really. I've been in many suites on various ships where there isn't a step up into the bathroom. On Oceania's new builds, there isn't a step up in either of the bathrooms in the Owners or Vista...

We dined in Luminae on three cruises and you can certainly order off the MDR menu. They don't just give you that menu, you have to ask for it, but personally, the menus in Luminae are so much better...

In all my many cruises, over 90, I can't tell if someone is gay, straight, bi, trans or anything else, and I don't give a hoot either. As long as everyone is decent, kind, respectful and fun, who...

Celebrity's late night options are not all that great and it's more babysitting than anything else. Plus, after 10pm there's a per hour, per child charge for the kid's club.
