  1. Yes it does https://www.oceaniacruises.com/Mediterranean-cruises/istanbul-to-athens-NAU210826/?sr=%2Fcruise-finder%2F%23sailDates%3D2021|09%2C2021|08%23ships%3DNAU https://www.oceaniacruises.com/Mediterranean-cruises/athens-to-rome-NAU210905/?sr=%2Fcruise-finder%2F%23sailDates%3D2021|09%2C2021|08%23ships%3DNAU
  2. what add ons? They are a premium line so no free alcohol but people can choose to buy the package or not Unlike some lines where you are paying for alcohol even if you do not drink
  3. 2) this cruise is 2 yrs away you never know what/who the crew will be by then 3)if you do not like bus tours then suggest you skip the ships excursions & book private guides 4) usually in tender ports the ships tours go off first but they do also allow independents off if room on the early tenders you must go to the lounge & get a tender ticket & when they call your number/colour head directly to the tender platform 5)if you want to do this cruise I agree it will book up quickly .. I would give your TA (preferably one familiar with Oceania) a couple of cabin options before the 21st so they can get your booking done early on the day it opens up JMO
  4. they would need to remove revenue producing cabins to do so The O class ships were built & the lounges were part of the plan
  5. near the top of the page click on FIND A CRUISE use the filters to narrow down the ports
  6. You may have to up your budget but check what is included in the pricing also The cabins will probably be smaller than on main stream lines but then the ships are smaller & less lines 😉 It is a trade off
  7. No Concierge lounges on the R ships On Regatta there was a shaded area on the spa deck so maybe on the other small ships also
  8. Shoot yes Coral Way 😁🔍
  9. Hyatt place 17th street is close to the mall by Embassy suites maybe some bars open in the plaza ?
  10. sounds like a good deal for 4 of you but others may comment on UBER or other shuttles
  11. Orv Click on the Coral Gables trolley map on the 2nd link it shows port of Miami and in the inset it shows the route around the port area
  12. Do they even do Florida? They look like tour site for Belize ...am I missing something? why not just use a local service ? Where are you going to/from?
  13. I am thinking we did the same in Portland We had a private tour to Dorchester/Swannery & time in Weymouth I enjoyed Weymouth a lot
  14. YIKES I did not realize it was snarky 😱 just that Med cruises are port intensive so most are off the ship more than on during waking hours Sorry I offended you
  15. I would agree on your last statement 😉 Not sure the helicopters would be flying in winter but I am afraid of heights so never checked I would call just to see what they say & remind them that NF in the winter for 3 days might be a bit much 1 night to see the lights would be nice The train probably departs on the Canadian side I have family in the area so making the drive in the winter months from Toronto can be sketchy at times
  16. Did you have a immigration meeting in Portland?? It was years ago when we were there & do not remember if we had any immigration then no problem getting off in Dover the next day This year we were in France the day before disembarkation
  17. FWIW I would forgo the package deal just do the cruise if you want that itinerary I would DIY a trip to Toronto & NF at a better time of year where you have control over the itinerary JMO
  18. sounds like they did not do their research But are they just flying you to Toronto & you have to make your way to NF & whatever hotel they have booked & then to the train?? I would think they would organize transport to NF for those in the package or maybe I am wrong on how packages work in the UK
  19. I am guessing this is a guided tour for the land portion??
  20. more of a cruise / land package The falls are beautiful in winter but it can be COLD There is the Festival of Lights which lights up the Falls at night many other activities https://www.niagarafallstourism.com/seasons/winter/
  21. it comes to the front of the Terminal building Terminal J ..usually crew get on but some pax do also it is free It is the Coral Gables route You can just get off after the bridge on Biscayne & walk or stay on ..follow the crew 😉 photo of trolley here https://www.coralgables.com/trolley-services Here is the routes & you can get other trollies https://www.miamigov.com/Services/Transportation/Get-Trolley-Information-Schedules-and-Maps
  22. funny no one was checking shoes on either of the classes we took several ladies were in open toed shoes Also you are standing for the 90 mins so if you have a problem with that it may not be for you I think they should have anti fatigue mats at the cooking stations I tell you my back was killing me when we left 😲
  23. we did the ViVa Espana (I think) that was the one but they combined it with another class as they did not have that many participants We made Cornbread & Huevos Rancheros & chicken tortilla But the Chef could do something different for your class
