  1. We didn't have lunch in the speciality restaurant on embarkation or on the one sea day we had.
  2. Just returned. We had no problem with making reservation at the times we wanted. But our cruise was not sold out (about 3600 passengers were on board) so that could have contributed to the availability.
  3. Thanks all for replying. I will try to remember to post our experiences after our cruise.
  4. Our flight arrives at 10:30 so will be difficult to board earlier 😀. On our Set SailPass it states that check-in starts at 12:30. Do they also have stand-by for the restaurants, in our experience with other cruises some people don't show up and their table keeps empty.
  5. Hi, I purchased the unlimited dining package for our Oasis 7 night cruise in a few weeks. We like to try different restaurants and usually prefer the specialty restaurants over the main dining room. The price was $180 pp and with the 40% discount on bottle of wines in the restaurant this looks like a good deal. But I'm a little worried about to be able to make reservations at our preferred time between 7 and 8 pm. Do they keep part of the inventory open for bookings after boarding? We will be in the cruise terminal around 11:30/12:00 (Barcelona). This is the first time on RCI, but are platinum due our status with Celebrity. I understand that with platinum we have some priority on boarding. The plan is as soon as we have boarded to make the reservations for all nights. Thanks!
  6. We are on the Oasis in august this year and disembark in Barcelona. I know that there is a stay on board program which allows you to stay longer on board. But does anyone know what is the latest that you can disembark without that program. We will have only hand luggage so I assume we can ignore the luggage tag numbers and just leave at the last moment. Our flight is at 13:20 so we would like to disembark around 10:00 and catch a taxi to the airport. Thanks
  7. @Miaminice thanks for the answer and the site
  8. Thanks so far. Our complete itinerary in a nutshell is: fly from The Netherlands to Japan - visit Tokyo & Kyoto - fly from Japan to Hongkong - Visit Macau - start the cruise in Hongkong - Taipei (Taiwan) - Shanghai - Kochi (Japan) - Osaka (Japan) - Shimizu (Japan) - end cruise in Yokohama (Japan) and fly back to The Netherlands
  9. I'm still trying to figure out if we qualify for the 144 hour visa free transit. It is difficult to find any information because we don't have a typical itinerary for our cruise. We start in Hongkong, then go to Taipei (Taiwan), Shanghai (2pm till 4pm next day) and then to Japan. So far I haven't found another cruise that does this route. The question is if Taiwan is considered a third country like Hongkong. I don't think you can compare them for the free transit, China considers Taiwan as a part of it (One-China-Policy) and most countries don't recognize Taiwan as an independent state. Hope someone has some insight or directions where I can get more info about this. Thanks
  10. If it also chartered for that week it will be by another organisation. I don't know anything about that.
  11. The cruise has been announced but isn't on sale at the moment. I doubt it will ever appear on the NCL site as it is a charter cruise.
  12. Hong Kong to Tokyo, depart April 17 2019 and arrival April 27 2019. Overnights in Tapei & Shanghai, stops in Kochi, Osaka and Shimizu.
