  1. We were on the same cruise as MMARK14 and we were horrified by the act that the British paid 1/2 what we did. This was confirmed by the Concierge and the Club Ambassador. When we got home we called Oceania Guest Relations as directed by the onboard staff and spoke to the Director of Guest Relations. She proceeded to tell us that this was indeed true and since there were many empty cabins at final payment time, they gave the British a very special deal since they didn't have to get air. This cruise was very, very expensive. We could have done at least 2 other cruises on any other line. The food and service was superb and that is it. The entertainment is very amateurish and everything else is just mediocre. We have been on 5 Oceania Cruises and will never cruise with them again. We had a cruise booked already for July 19, 2012 and cancelled it after speaking to the Director of Guest Relations who was not very helpful to say the least. We also didn't go to 2 ports which was not the fault of Oceania but we are sure we paid port charges for it. We had extra days at sea and there is not much to do onboard this ship other than read or play cards especially since the weather was very cool We hope Mr. Del Rio reads this posts and sees how many customers they have lost from this Marina sailing. Everyone we knew said they would never cruise with Oceania again if we weren't given something since we paid twice the price of the British. We were so looking forward to this cruise and were disappointed, angry and generally unhappy
  2. We heard the same thing from the cruise line. Just go onto the Vietnamese embassy....and follow the directions for a visa. We mailed it in and it cost $120 per person which we also thought was exorbitant and we received our Visa in 5 days. http://www.vietnamembassy-usa.org/
  3. Ellen, Thank you for your quick response. How much clothing did you bring? Are capris and tops OK? My daughter lives in Alpharetta? I was hoping not to overpack.. Do we dressy for the Captain's dinner..I am assuming my husband should bring a couple of pairs of pants. You changed three times a day..that is a lot of clothes... Oh well...your review has made us so excited..any other pointers you can just email me at sylviabrauner@comcast.com and then I will give you my phone number and if you don't mind, would love to talk to you Thanks again, Sylvia
  4. Thanks so much for your review. We are leaving September 10th and we are very excited. What did you do about the currency? Was it easy to exchange USD for the Vietnamese and Cambodian currency? Did you do in advance or on the ship or in the countries? Any additional information you can give us would be so helpful. What was the dress code at night on the ship? Can men wear shorts or slacks? jeans? Thanks so much, Sylvia Brauner
