    Who is comparable to Oceania ?

    I have been on two Tauck River cruises and have another booked. I echo SandJCruiser’s comments about Tauck. They are top of the line. They know how to treat you and treat you well. Their river cruises are all inclusive. No options are sold on board. The only extra would be things like laundry or an item in the gift shop. The ships are beautiful and the cabins are lovely. The largest suites are 300 sq feet. The next level down are 250 sq. Feet. So they are comfortable and spacious. food is good and they are very careful about catering to dietary needs. we have been more than pleased with them. Terri

    Question about bringing wine

    This is exactly the behavior that made HAL go from a very liberal policy of bringing wine on board to one of the most restrictive. Don’t ruin a good thing for everyone else.
  3. Thanks for the well wishes. Looking forward to a great cruise. Terri

    Thanks for doing this, Hillsprint. So it is more than one other ship than the Riviera. The Costa Luminosa holds 2838 passengers The MSC neoRiviera holds 1248 passengers The Oceania Riviera holds 1300 passengers. So if all ships are filled to the max we are looking at 5386 passengers. That is better than double that number. I, for one, can live with that number. It won’t ruin my day in Mykonos. Even better is being the only ship in port in Santorini. Terri

    I wasn’t trying to be snarky and sorry if you took it that way. I was just trying to point out that we are in a better position now than we were. I thought I was trying to help and sometimes it is better to keep quiet. No good deed goes unpunished. Terri:loudcry:

    We are still in better shape than we would have been had Oceania stuck to the original itinerary. So what is all the fuss about? As LHT28 says “Go with the flow” and enjoy the day in port and be happy that in both Santorini and Mykonos there will be fewer people. :) Terri

    Well, it appears that hasn’t been updated either to show that the Riviera is now in port on 25-July rather than 23 July. I grant you that your site is probably the most accurate., Terri

    Where are you looking? I see only the Costa Luminosa in port. Terri
  9. I wouldn’t give up on Oceania. We have taken two cruises on O. One on the Insignia and one on the Riviera. We will be sailing on the Riviera again next week. They have great itineraries and there are lots of things included that HAL charges extra for. We personally liked the Insignia (smaller ship) better. It held 684 passengers. We were on for 19 days and by the end we felt we knew most on board. I would not hesitate to go back on another O cruise. We have had only good experiences on Oceania. I wish I could say the same for the last few HAL cruises we have taken. Terri

    I see those ships in the port of Mykonos for 24-July-18 rather than 25-July-18. I checked twice just to be sure. As far as I can see the Costa Luminosa is the only other ship in port with us. Terri

    This will be our third O cruise. The last two have been great and we really do not think we will return to HAL unless things change drastically. Thanks for your good wishes. Terri
  14. I posted this on our roll call and thought it might be wise to post it here as well. Just received an email from my travel agent. The ports of Santorini and Mykonos have been swapped. This is really good. We are now the only ship in port in Santorini. The original day had six ships in port. In Mykonos, there is only one other ship in port rather than three on our original day. So our new schedule is: Santorini --July 23--8 am to 6 pm--No other ships in port. (tender) Mykonos-- July 25--8 am to 6 pm--(tender) One other ship in port-- Costa Luminosa (2800 passengers) I assume they will be docking. Hope this helps everyone, especially those with private tours arranged in these ports. Terri

    Boarding procedures/PH1?

    They do a thorough cleaning. They just have a good system. There are many that leave early and those cabins get done first. They also get some stuff ready in the cabins ahead of time, like the bathrobes, and make up the beds while you are at breakfast. There are not many that wait until 9:30 to leave. The majority leave earlier. There are times that the cabins are not ready until noon, but that is the exception. Most of the time the cabins are ready by 11:30 am and they are thoroughly clean. That being said, I have decided not to sail on HAL anymore for other reasons. Terri
