  1. The ship will also provide a shower/bath seat free of charge.
  2. I just received an email extending cruise final payment and/or cancellation dates: IMPORTANT FINAL PAYMENT EXTENSION Dear Valued Guests and Travel Advisors, On behalf of your entire Oceania Cruises family, I hope you are doing well and that you are looking forward to your upcoming Oceania Cruises voyage. We know what a great deal of planning goes into a vacation and we are also acutely aware that travelers have many more concerns than they did in the past.
  3. That is exactly how I feel. I would not hesitate to book either cruise line if the itinerary was what I wanted. There are differences, but nothing negative enough to spoil my enjoyment.
  4. I don't like the way the forums look with your new layout. Instead of individual boards being listed in easy to find columns, they are now run on one after another. 😒
  5. We took the round trip Miami to the Amazon a couple years ago. We enjoyed the cultural experiences very much, and did not go specifically for scenery or wildlife. The highlight was a tour we arranged with "Tours by Locals" in Manaus which was probably the best shore excursion we have ever taken.
  6. Similar here. I asked about my refund and they said a credit was posted to my card the day after cancellation. However, that credit has not yet appeared on my credit card .
  7. Sea of Cortez. IMO there is a real shortage of cruises with multiple port calls.
  8. But it sure was fun sailing at 31+ knots on the QE2!
  9. They also could not have known enough for the captain to announce that the airlifted passenger definitely was not infected. He did so.
  10. Oceania cancelled and aborted my cruise on Riviera 11 March. They offered either a 150% cruise credit or 100% refund. Well, no refund nor even any correspondence to get this refunded. I have sent inquiries via the web site. In most cases I get a computer generated response that "we will make every effort to respond in a timely manner." Then nothing further. I plan to get my credit card company involved next week.
  11. While the captain assured us that the passenger did NOT have covid-19. The coverup was already starting.
  12. The majority of time on the Bermuda cruise will be sea days (travel to and from Bermuda). You would have one full day there. The other cruise would maximize time at the mentioned ports.
  13. Sure, since the Jones Act has nothing to do with passenger ships.
  14. Recently, HAL's entertainment has been seriously cut. I would actually now place it below Oceania (IMHO).
  15. This will never happen IMHO. ----------------------------- what new process have you worked out with US Authorities so the entire ship doesn’t get quarantined upon return to its home port because of COVID-19?
  16. Has anyone received refunds or cruise credits for the aborted sailing on March 11? I phoned their customer service and was told to email their reservation supervisor. The email address they gave me was not a good address. I did contact my PCC and he said he would take care of it. Somehow I don't have a very positive feeling about this.
