  1. A website that lists restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic: https://www.wilhelmsen.com/ships-agency/campaigns/coronavirus/coronavirus-map/
  2. If selecting the shore excursion O-Life option how to tell which excursions are included?
  3. 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
  4. Is this conjecture or do you have a reliable source?

  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. I hope this doesn’t mean the end of the Terrace Cafe: From the linked article: “Buffets, for example, long a staple of ships from contemporary to luxury, will “probably” be eliminated on NCLH ships, Del Rio said.” Full article here: https://www.travelweekly.com/Cruise-Travel/Sailing-full-redefined-in-cruising-new-reality-coronavirus?fbclid=IwAR1ylfi0YGt9I2NJnpoVf4crO2Ai40q5WGkdurq3YmOm-2rp9vha-h38V5Q
  9. Yes. Olife can be purchased with air, without air, or air one way and a credit for the other way. Air may also be purchased through Oceania without Olife.
  10. We’re lookin forward to our August 2020 Insignia cruise!
  11. Distilled water is available free of charge and no need for an extension cord. There are outlets next to the beds. You might want to get the US to European (two pin) plug adapter. The ship did provide those to use but I bought one since we travel frequently.
  12. If it happens I’ll give a full report of our August 15 Insignia cruise.
  13. The people that do well are those that don’t panic.
  14. Perhaps Apollo, the private equity firm, will snap up Prestige Cruise Holdings, the parent company of Oceania Cruises and Regent Seven Seas Cruises, in the event of liquidation or reorganization. The business model for both lines was successful so there could be real value in doing so.
  15. “Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd. issued a business update on April 27 detailing its efforts to successfully ride out the global COVID-19 pandemic, including refinancing debt and reducing operating and capital expenses. The company said it expects to report a net loss for the first quarter and for the year.” More here: https://www.travelpulse.com/news/cruise/nclh-takes-measures-to-mitigate-business-impacts-from-covid-19.html?fbclid=IwAR0sofgGk6TlTgxhWyHy2TnwVVS1268YfRZvAmHfuNo0HJJCEPZO4-RVqTg#.XqhOakjkFgI.facebook
