  1. Have you noticed that this cabin is connected to another one? Maybe everything else was full, to be honest we have never had an adjoining cabin as CC’ers have always advised against it. Whatever you decide have a great cruise. Happy planning Rosalyn
  2. This was posted on our Eurodam roll call for 18th October. Holland America will now be using Porto Maghera Not sure where the 'original' port was, perhaps someone can locate? I thought it was near the 'Tranchetto' on the island of Venice? Anyways, better for those coming from the airport, not so great those of us staying on the island, although getting to and from the island is not difficult if memory serves me well.

  3. Josie and Brian and all of you, so sad to see the news of our/your cancellations. I had just booked my return flights from Dubai on Monday, now desperately looking for a replacement cruise. Sorry to miss you all, maybe on another cruise. Rosalyn
  4. To be honest at the moment I am just hoping our Nautica cruise from Tokyo next year will sail! That said I do not agree with Oceania still advertising on their web site for the Nautica as 2023 to me is not really coming soon.

  5. After our booking on 2nd February 5/5-10/6 when we managed to snag one of the last Veranda/Balcony cabins most of the cabins have all been waitlisted. This was also valid for most if not all of the Asia cruises on Nautica, so I don’t see that Oceania has “just” waitlisted these cruises. At least I sincerely hope not, just booked flights! Rosalyn
  6. Seagal, here you are with some clear photos of the differences “a picture speaks a thousand words” https://boards.cruisecritic.com.au/topic/1682474-azamara-journey-balcony-metal-plate/ Rosalyn This is for Azamara but applies to all R ships. Happy planning
  7. Definitely, I can remember visiting the locks on an excursion and saying dreamily that I wanted to return on a cruise ship. A few years later we did so and it was a great experience, depending on your ship size you might go through the new locks. If you do go I suggest that you read some of the history of building the Canal first, it was an incredible feat of engineering and a terrible time for the workers. Happy planning and consider this your retirement treat. Rosalyn
  8. I was wondering the same thing too when looking at the difference between some of the balcony cabins. This was the answer/photo I got. https://boards.cruisecritic.com.au/topic/1682474-azamara-journey-balcony-metal-plate/?do=findComment&comment=35159068 This was for Azamara but the cabins on the R ships are the same. Rosalyn
  9. All, here is some incredibly valuable information I copied from a HAL roll call and reposted on our Oceania one. https://boards.cruisecritic.com/topic/2772490-november-12-2022-35-day-australia-circumnavigation/?do=findComment&comment=60954043 Happy planning Rosalyn
  10. Oh sorry just checked and they are all waitlisted which is possibly because sailings to Australia might not be allowed/possible 2021/2022. Here are the possibilities for 2022/2023 which are also waitlisted (it was so popular we managed a pre booking) but you can always try to waitlist as it is a long way away. If you do manage 2022/2023 do pop over and join our roll call. happy planning Rosalyn
  11. Do any of these fit the bill, I don’t know your budget but as you mention a butler maybe Oceania could be a match. I know you were not interested in Asia but as previously mentioned I think this is a prerequisite. We have done Singapore via Bali to Sydney and Auckland to Bali so both halves of Australia so to speak. Loved them both so we have booked the circumnavigation with Oceania for 2022/2023. We are looking forward to experiencing Christmas and New Year in a sunny climate. https://www.oceaniacruises.com/cruise-comparison/REG211203-REG211203A-REG211217?returnUrl=%2Fcr
  12. Great, thanks for explaining that. Rosalyn
  13. Sorry have to ask, as an European just gone thru thus thread again but for the life of me can’t work out the J or even F on Japan Airlines (JL). I guess it could be premium economy or business or possibly preferred seat numbers. As this seems to be quite clear for Americans, please enlighten me. Rosalyn
  14. Maybe you might want to try to book/waitlist a similar cruise with the Nautica for May 2022. Rosalyn
  15. Josie, I am glad to hear you managed to get past the wait list, a shame you will have to change cabins but keep an eye open and there might be some cancelations. There are two separate legs, at the moment you are only on the Singapore to Dubai roll call so you will miss out on the info for Tokyo to Singapore. Rosalyn
