  1. My travel agent t has said Oceania will give us the new reduced fares, but they have also changed from OLife ultimate to a choice of one benefit. Still a massive saving for us. I just hope the world returns to some sort of normalcy by then. Horrible times at the moment.
  2. Thank you for the heads up. We have a cruise booked in August, and on checking my TA website I see the price pp has been reduced by approx £1,000. As there are 4 of us on this cruise, that is a lot of money! I'm now waiting for TA to speak with Oceania.
  3. We are on lockdown here in Cyprus. I have to carry passport and printed form stating where I am going and am allowed out for 3 hours maximum per trip. i.e. shopping, dog walking. No more than 2 people together also. We are just getting on with it and trying to help one another in any way we can. It is a terrible time but it has brought out the best in many people.
  4. I missed doing it on our last cruise on Ovation. I've no idea why it didn't happen but they are fun and a good way to meet people!
  5. We joined in Dubai and disembarked Singapore. Verity imho is one of the best! She made our cruise that bit more special.
  6. What a wonderful idea, and attitude thank you! I've met some wonderful people and had some great conversations in various cruise ship laundry rooms. Off on a cruise soon and hopefully I won't encounter any laundry rom tensions. Really, life's too short to sweat the small stuff!
  7. Say it isn't so! Jacques is my favourite restaurant and I would really miss it. Let's hope it's just a rumour.
  8. We are on board next week, so i shall look out for flowers in my cabin!
  9. I've now got Alanis Morrissette on a loop in my head! I too am bombarded with brochures, but I do read them ad keep booking!
  10. I love Oceania because of the friendly vibe, from crew and passengers. The beautiful ships, Riviera and Marina being my favourites. Fabulous specialty dining. Smaller ships suit us better. 😀
  11. Ok I have to ask, who is the "wannabe Broadway performer"?! Still laughing at your descriptions btw!
  12. Google taxi transfers and prebook. That's what we do, pre and post cruise if transfers aren't included.
  13. I'm assuming you have checked the Seabourn site? I kept checking back as we are a party of eight and requested cabins near each other, 3 couples are next to each other and one is 2 decks up. Hopefully you should find out soon. You never know they might upgrade you!
  14. We got ours about 3 weeks before. We also sail on 2 December.
  15. I'm surprised that you're surprised that anyone is surprised. 😉
