  1. Thank you for all your replies. I really appreciate these boards and the people who take the time to reply! We will be sailing on the Riviera next year!!
  2. Thank you for your very helpful replies! It is our first Oceana cruise and I appreciate the room advice. We also like mid to aft cabins. There are pros and cons for me with the extended balconies, but those lounge chairs are calling my name! : )
  3. The TA just recommended a room with an extended balcony. Do you like them or should I keep a regular balcony? Are they covered enough from the elements? Are there lounge chairs on them or on all balconies? Thank you!
  4. Thank you all for your helpful replies! We are thinking of a December cruise in 2021. I so miss planning and looking forward to cruising again. By then we hope all will be well. No special itinerary this time. We see very little sun in Pennsylvania in December, so sunshine, reading and a relaxing getaway is all we need. Maybe a beach : ) Although we enjoy an occasional cocktail or glass of wine, we are not big drinkers and we prefer to arrange our own air. We have always wanted to try Oceania and are currently looking at Riviera veranda suite. Any advise is welcome!
  5. Hello We have sailed many times on other lines. We are thinking about trying Oceania for a Caribbean cruise next year. What should a first time guest know? Which class ship would be a good choice? We have traveled on larger ships and book veranda rooms. Thank you in advance for any suggestions!
  6. Looking at my credit card receipt I see I paid $63.85 to travel from The Andersen hotel to the port where our Serenade of the Seas was docked. The hotel called the taxi and it was very convenient for the 5 of us with 5 large suitcases. I was told the taxis are metered. I must say I was expecting it to be about $50, but considering we only needed one vehicle, I was satisfied.
  7. Glad to help! We loved the Andersen. Beautiful and bountiful breakfast : ) After breakfast we walked to the canal and had our tour, since we didn't have time the day before. We only stayed one night. We told the staff at the hotel what time we wanted to leave for the terminal and they had a van type taxi ready for the 5 of us. So nice. We sailed with Royal Caribbean and it was the smoothest embarkation ever.
  8. We arrived in in CPH from JFK and after getting our luggage we immediately went to the exit for a taxi. We said there were 5 of us plus luggage and he directed us to a spot where a van came over in just a few minutes. Very easy. I thought the van to our hotel (The Andersen) would cost more than a standard car. We paid with a credit card and it was the equivalant of $50. We were pleased.
  9. Can you pay a corkage fee and then have it in the dining room?
  10. Thank you all for your replies. I really appreciate the feedback!
  11. My carrier for my iPhone is ATT.. They offer a phone plan for $60 for land use while on our Baltic cruise (under 30 days) . It includes Russia. Has anyone used this plan or do you have suggestions. Unlimited texts, 1 GB and 35 cents per minute for calls are offered. Thank you for any input!
  12. Thank you both for helping me with my questions regarding HOHO buses! It doesn't mention two cruise terminal pick-ups on Stromma's web site. I will have to check that out.
  13. Thank you for all the information! I was wondering how often the HOHO bus runs. If the first bus at the cruise port fills, how long do we wait for the next bus? Is there a dedicated spot to wait in line for the HOHO bus? We arrive for our day in June.
