  1. Many in Seattle don’t want cruise ships even though the cruise industry contributes approximately $500,000,000 per year to the local economy. Seattle seems to be engaged in a massive economic suicide movement. Very sad.
  2. Included in the fare are all non-alcoholic beverages and specialty restaurants. There are no “art auctions” or photographers. The food is a large cut above the other lines. The atmosphere is quiet, refined yet relaxed and comfortable. Tea in Horizons is wonderful.
  3. On Oceania unlimited lobster tails, prawns, steaks, chops grilled to order every night in the Terrace Cafe:
  4. Carnival Corp. announced retiring at least six ships across the brands, most likely to be scrapped.
  5. The person I work with at Oceania has been an exceptional help in unusual circumstances and has direct contacts within the company. In this specific case she was able to access my funds from the cancelled cruise immediately and book the cabin I wanted for our November cruise. This method has served me well, costs nothing more than an additional email, and doesn’t affect the commIssion of either person. My Oceania contact also checks her email and responds during non-working hours.
  6. We did this a few weeks ago. We used a TA to book an Alaska cruise for us which was cancelled, the cruise would be happening now. Once it was cancelled I called my contact directly at Oceania and booked a cruise for this November using the funds from the cancelled cruise. It was instantaneous and very easy. I then moved the booking to my TA for the additional perks.
  7. Additional reservations can be made once on board on a space available basis.
  8. Details here: https://www.citynews1130.com/2020/05/29/cruise-ship-ban-canada/
  9. A website that lists restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic: https://www.wilhelmsen.com/ships-agency/campaigns/coronavirus/coronavirus-map/
  10. If selecting the shore excursion O-Life option how to tell which excursions are included?
  11. Oceania Cruises Announces Extended Global Voluntary Suspension of Cruising At Oceania Cruises, the health, safety and well-being of our guests, crew and the communities we visit has always been and remains our highest priority. Given continued global efforts to combat the spread of the global COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, we are extending our suspension of voyages to include all voyages through July 31, 2020 in an abundance of caution. Full statement: https://www.oceaniacruises.com/coronavirus-statement
  12. Is this conjecture or do you have a reliable source?

  14. We had a G booked before the recent major price reduction. At that time Category G was waitlisted but F wasn’t. After the recent price reductions we couldn’t take advantage of the lower fare because there were no G cabins available but F were. At the new lower prices the F cabins were now less expensive than what the G had been. We took the upgrade which lowered our cost overall.
  15. I was in a similar position but in my case I was able to receive a lower fare overall by changing to a category F.
