    Deck 8 Owner's Suites on R class

    deck space is bigger on deck 6 than deck 8 due to the shape of the superstructure I am sure Jim has a photo here someplace 😉 this the side view deck 6 is just above the blue line the deck space at the back gets smaller as you go up a deck

    yes You can bring a case if you want for consumption in your cabin or pay the corkage fee to take to the dining venues

    Deck 8 Owner's Suites on R class

    Oceania has decided in it's wisdom if you book 2 consecutive cruises they treat them as one You do get a discount on the airfare as you are not using the air the middle of the cruises not sure if there is a further discounted amount or not When this happened to us our TA pushed to get 2 separate bookings we took the air credit for both but there was not B2B discount a that time like there had been in the past Maybe your TA could give a O a push to get the 2 separate bookings numbers/cabins & maybe a discount worth a try

    Luggage Free or Luggage Forward?

    looks like a wheel or foot should have been there how did the case stand up ??

    Shore Excursions Group

    they are a broker they will hire locals to do the tour You are better off seeing if anyone on your roll call has a tour to share JMO
  8. sounds like your TA is preoccupied & not with your account 😉
  9. yes you can walk around the town depending on the ages of the children you could do a tour to Honfleur Check the tourist board for Le Havre to see what would interest you https://www.lehavretourisme.com/fr/decouvrir/incontournables/une-plage-dans-la-ville

  11. I believe this is available on all O ships most of the Friday services are lead by passengers sometimes the CD will attend It seems O is very accommodating for those of the Jewish Faith
  12. it no longer exists AFAIK It was there back in the early years of Oceania

    Passport Collection

    Are you sure they will collect the passports or is it just a standard statement ? We usually have to hand in our passports being Canadian but the last couple of Caribbean cruises we did not which was a shock to us I believe Oceania request passports from all even on closed loop cruises I could be wrong as we always travel with a passport

    OLife Choice

    forgot to mention do not use the Roll Call Finder as it can be hit or miss
  16. LHT28

    OLife Choice

    The roll call is a forum where you will meet others on the same sailing You can share tours or just get to know your fellow shipmates before the cruise https://boards.cruisecritic.com/forum/321-oceania-roll-calls/ look for the ship you are on then scroll down the list of sailings until you find your date then post there If you have trouble finding your sailing post the name of the ship & date & someone will point you to it

    Passport Collection

    if you miss the ship make sure you have the Port Agents info usually posted in the Currents the night before the port then you can contact them & they will likely have your passport If worried just ask for your passport to be returned to you after check in but be aware you may have to report to immigration early each morning when you dock

    Passport Collection

    just talk to the Purser the night before the port or even days before so he/she is aware you will need your passport
  19. AFAIK they stopped putting meetings other than Friends of Bill in the Currents a few years back Some complained about the FOD meetings were not advertised The RTW cruise may be an exception for some events as noted in the photo EG: Becky's book club Maybe a better option would be to have a board set up someplace where people could ad their meetings for those interested in attending especially on a RTW cruise JMO
  20. I would check in your account under MY ACCOUNT & see what the dates are there Could just be human error 😉
  21. Hi Denise I have used STA before You can choose the Private option https://www.schipholtraveltaxi.nl/en/ or just a taxi from the rank we have done both
  22. pays to read the fine print 😉
  23. I think the one I posted above is free incoming but you pay for outgoing text/calls But you have a UK number so that should work with your brother i have only tested ours with a local call in Canada but it worked ok
