  1. You should have gotten this response when you submitted your request "Greetings, Thank you for contacting the NCLH Shareholder Benefit Request - Oceania Cruises Desk. While this message is not intended as a reply to your inquiry, we are confirming receipt of your request. We will be responding in the order it was received. Warmest Regards, ShareHolderBenefit@OceaniaCruises.com | www.OceaniaCruises.com Oceania Cruises 7665 Corporate Center Drive | Miami FL 33126" I've not yet heard back regarding my cruise coming up in a few weeks so will be interested if Jayne E posts the phone number.
  2. Still waiting for confirmation that my request will be granted. Have been denied in the past when they said we booked with a special rate that didn't qualify for a share holder benefit. 😞
  3. This is the response I got for a M & G for a November 2019 (Mrs. f's) Marina sailing: Greetings, Thank you for contacting the Special Services Department. Kindly be advised Meet and Greet will need to be arranged once on board. I have notated your reservation so the ship is aware you will be contacting them. Warmest Regards, Kelly Castro | Special Services Coordinator – Marina
  4. Good choice. We've done several TAs but will be doing our first on Marina this November. Barcelona to Rio for the Canaries and Cape Verde. Have not been on Princess but the thought of sharing a ship with 3300+ passengers would give me serious pause. Looking forward to enjoying many relaxing sea days, great service and fine dining on our crossing on Marina.
  5. 😨 We're doing the reverse TA this November but stopping in Mindelo rather than Praia. Hoping it's a bit better than your experience.
  6. Looking forward to trying some of these on our TA in November. Lots of sea days to sample new things.
  7. That's the box we checked on the required forms and got confirmation back from Oceania that we're all set to receive our Visas at time of check-in in October. We're using a local guide who said that was the correct category to choose and he will provide appropriate documentation. Can't imagine that there will be any hassle going forward.
  8. Not "all" go bigger. https://www.usatoday.com/story/travel/cruises/2018/07/02/seabourn-cruise-line-orders-two-expedition-style-ships/750270002/
  9. December 2017 we had a Face-to-Face inspection at our first port of call in South Aftica, Richard's Bay. After that there were no inspections in Durban and Cape Town. Plague is endemic in Madagascar but they had an outbreak of pneumonic plague last August. We were notified before embarkation that the decision had been made by Oceania to skip Nosy Be, Madagascar. Disappointing but a wise choice. Perhaps that was the same thinking that affected the March 2018 itinerary.
  10. We did this itinerary last year and can confirm there were no evenings where local cuisine offered onboard.
  11. You're right - very limited. http://www.rogerjett-photography.com/here/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/Room-Service-and-Breakfast-Card.pdf
  12. We booked the Tattoo on our own last year. Paid for the tickets in March and picked them up at their office in August on the day of the performance. No problem at all especially with our ship in port until 1 AM. Enjoy!!! Tickets can be collected anytime during office hours after 3 April 2017 at the Tattoo Ticket Sales Office, 1 Cockburn Street, Edinburgh. Tickets can be collected, by the named cardholder only, on presentation of the signed card used to make the transaction. Office hours are Monday to Friday from 10.00am to 4.30pm On performance days the office is open from 10.00am until the start of the performance. We do advise, however, that tickets are collected no later than 30 minutes prior to the package/performance start time to allow sufficient time to walk to the Castle Esplanade (some ten minutes’ walk away) and be seated 15 minutes prior to the performance start time.
  13. Thanks for this great review. I've been looking for suggestions for our visit on Sirena this October so hopefully Fernando will have something available.
