No clue as to why they would do such a thing. It would be revenue negative if you include the investment costs and pp spending on "additionals" (excursions, shops, spa, casino, alcohol). ...

Why not try 2020 World cruise segment for Japan. Or Azamara -- they are doing two in 2019.

She is just like O acquiring ex-Carnival/P&O R class ships. Adonia will the Azamara Pursuit in 2018. Would also suspect they have their eye on the last R ship. Makes sense to both O and A to...

Lets continue to beat the dead horse. Big difference between Ren and O. Ren was run on shaky financial ground with little cash flow.. O is part of NCL with significantly bigger pockets. NCL is...

I am glad no more emails from O or junk mail. I have my fill with Seabourn, Crystal and Silversea. :)

It certainly does. Went to Bagan. You get a regular VISA stamp in passport good for a 28 day stay.

You are 100% right. That admin fee certainly will make me less likely to book in advance on Crystal. Especially on longer segments (on world cruises) that require an early booking in order to get...

Actually it is an entitlement since it is used to entice you to stay with a cruise line.

Yes but do this (get a head start) just prior to a dry dock is really bad. Offer upped to 100%.
Only bad press makes NCL do anything more.

I think I have worn a sport coat maybe twice in all of our O cruises. What the OP is proposing is within O's guidelines.
However I see you are also trying the QM2 and that would not suffice.
