  1. Wow. Sounds like a steal or a misprint. Grab it but check the fine print first.
  2. Sounds great. I agree. We also have found a "home" on Oceania. There's something special that is difficult to describe to people who do short Caribbean cruises. To us its been worth the money to enjoy this level of comfortas oppsed to being on other cruiselines. 😎πŸ’₯πŸŽΆπŸŒŠπŸŽ‰
  3. So far I agree with your assessment. We love going to wineries before boarding Oceania. That is something special that other lines don't allow. We also enjoy our wines on our Veranda or pay the $25 to have them at dinner. Never drink beer nor have alcohol during lunch.
  4. Talk to your TA. If you booked yesterday you will not get simplyMORE. You won't be stuck with excursions but should be able to choose between excursions or SBC . From what I heard, people should be able to choose whether they want to stay with the promotional fare or move into simply more. I am not a 100% sure. You can remove the airfare at any time up to a specific # of days before the trip. I don't want to give misinformation.
  5. Same with us. So far it's weird on 2 of my already booked. Price for a 14 day B2 on Regatta is $2000 more pp, while 24 day PH2 on Vista is $900 more. I don't get it. Thankfully I have plenty of time.
  6. Wine, beer or "Champagne " only at lunch or dinner. I wonder if Waves is considered lunch?😜πŸ€ͺπŸ™ƒ
  7. Hi Oceania Cruisers, I don't understand the how Vista's new private dinner spaces work. Please let me know about Privee and the other small dining rooms. Does anyone know the additional costs? How they're booked? Any other details. Thanks 😎🌻
  8. LOL Hi Fellow Oceania Lovers, Heads up. The website is open and already crashed 10 minutes ago. Was able to check Regatta Sydney to Sydney Jan 25, 2024. It's up $2000 pp for B2. Our Vista Athens to Rome probably had a misprint. There's an increase of $900 pp for our PH2 but it didn't show any $ amount of excursion credits. We booked with 6 excursions pp. Will wait to see. 🌊😎
  9. I totally agree. We cruise Oceania because it's a better place for us to be.πŸŒŠπŸŽ‰πŸ’₯😎
  10. I can't explain but if you're on a ATW you know how special the Oceania experience can be. It's not just the food on the other lines. More, it's the Quality of the food, the ambience in Restaurants, the noisy pool decks, the crowds, children running around (although a TA usually doesn't have many). I love children but don't want to vacation with someone else's family. On the 1 Celebrity and 1 Princess we found the special Restaurants were inferior to those on Oceania. I wouldn't pay to eat there in any city, so why pay on their ships? I also dislike caste systems. Too many things for me to mention in detail. Thanks 😎
  11. We love Oceania. I doubt there is another cruiseline that would make us happy. Unless, we spent double and went with Regent. We "experimented" with lower priced lines in higher categories. We didn't enjoy Princess nor Celebrity. Too many things to explain here. We know Oceania costs more but why eat at McDonald's if I blessedly can afford Le Cirque? Just sayingπŸ¦‹β€οΈπŸŒŠπŸŒ»πŸ˜Ž
  12. Why eat hot dogs when fresh tuna and lobster are always available? This is Oceania 🌊not "Carnival"🎑 πŸ˜ŽπŸŽ‰
  13. The baked goods are delicious. That's why people complain about the cookies. You would think they should be wonderful as well.πŸŽ‚πŸͺ🌻
  14. Thanks for the info. I am really sorry to hear that. I guess some butlers click and others do not.
  15. You are projecting without having had the experience. If it's your first, how do you know you're going to be disappointed? Why not travel with an open mind and enjoy the trip?
  16. Oceania was not involved. You are confusing us. This was a specific port on a different cruise line and has nothing to do with Oceania.
  17. Aw that's unfortunate. We were told that previously booked cruises will not be changed when the new rates and plans are introduced. You would have been able to keep whatever you originally chose.
  18. From what I've been reading, you won't be forced to take them, but you will have credit to use towards them. I'm not quite sure how that will work. Maybe you will have to take a few to use up those credits. I don't really know.
  19. The cakes, pastries, tarts and pies are fabulous. It's your call.πŸ™ƒπŸ’₯
  20. I appreciate your kind words. Saw many complaints but have to assume the Butlers work hard and try to please just like the cabin attendants. πŸŒŠπŸŒ»πŸ˜ŽπŸ’
  21. Honestly, we have never met a worker on Oceania who said "no" to our requests. They've all been extra attentive and willing to find a solution to any problem.
  22. We haven't had a butler and will on our Vista 2024. Thanks for this insightful post. We definitely will ask to get fresh ice in the afternoon. 😎🌻
  23. Everyone is speculating about what will be. Can't we wait until July 1st and make more informed decision?
  24. Hi, On our 10th Oceania cruise we booked a PH on Vista. We would like to know what the Butler does to help. I don't want anyone unpacking my suitcases because then I won't know where to find everything. Thanks 🌻🌊😎
