  1. Because we are often in port for several days before the cruise, the laundry room is my friend. We are usually in our cabin between 1 and 2 in the afternoon and the laundry room is my first stop. As some else mentioned, mix and match when it comes to wardrobe. DH and I have done 32+ day cruises with one large case and roll aboard each.
  2. Stick around sofietucker, you were trying to help, and in my book that counts for something!
  3. Yup, sounds like you have some issues....hope it is an easy and quick resolution for you.
  4. Not sure this applies, but Saturdays seems to be a time when work takes place on the Oceania website. There’s been several threads where people write about account info, scheduled cruises, etc disappearing from their accounts. This could be what you’re experiencing. It seems to me the duration of this usually falls into 24 hours.
  5. We were told mid-ship (center) and the lower you go in the ship, the less motion you will experience. Our cruising experience with Oceania has been exclusively on R-ships and we are okay with the motion booking mid-ship and usually on decks 7 or 8. The R ships also have what I think are good stabilizers. YMMV
  6. Best thing in my email this a.m. Wishing Oceania all the best as they move forward to accomplish this goal.
  7. Indeed, and I sure do remember. For us, we have had a number of cruises that were cancelled and one we decided to re-booked until mid-2022, hoping that things will get back to some semblance of normal. Wishing you the best that your Nautica/October cruise sails in a way that works for you.
  8. Same here. Was happy to read that you both are doing well.
  9. In reading the points you’ve made, is it possible you would be better served to wait until such time in the future when cruising and the impact of Covid no longer is an issue and you wouldn’t be faced with the possibility of dealing with Oceania’s rip off pricing? Or considering one of those lines where you will only have to pay a quarter of the price and be on a ship that is in better condition. Jus a thought, maybe Oceania isn’t the right fit for you.
  10. I find what is happening on this board as far as the tone of comments, no different then what is on a great many social platforms, and unfortunately in some day to day interactions. It seems we have lost our filters and the ability to accept different opinions. In all our years cruising with Oceania, we have never encountered this type of situation on any of our cruises. We love Oceania for the itineraries, their beautiful ships, the crews that go above and beyond, the food and the interesting people we have met along the way. You alone know what is best for you. I wish you well
  11. We took the WHO Carte Jaune , our yellow cards with us when we had our shots. The nurse went ahead and added the Covid vaccinations and gave us the CDC card as well. Who knows what we will need when it all shakes out.
  12. I agree. They were setting up in anticipation of the Vero system being implemented. The running/walking track were a cooler always sat by the forward exit door, had workers plumbing in a water connection and installing the Vero water dispenser unit. In this COVID era it will be interesting to see how peoples personal Vero bottles are handled after being ashore. From a sanitary standpoint, will these be collected to be properly sanitized before being brought on to the ship?
  13. Same here. When you consider we enjoy the top shelf spirits, Oceania’s does a ‘small pour’, so one needs to order a double and no 18% gratuity, in doing the math we usually break even or we come out ahead with regard to the cost.
