All polls are public, but you chose to make the screen names public, and that's different. It's nobody's business what age anyone is on the Oceania forum. I think some people answered your poll...

Well, I disagree with you about the showers, but I am not fond of Toscana, and would not mind a different themed restaurant in its place. I especially don't like the olive oil and vinegar show and...

Your poll is visible to anyone who signs in to Cruise Critic. I was not suggesting that you personally plan to misuse the data.

Nosy, though? Yeah, I'd say the poll is nosy.

Why would it attract business? Are HAL passengers going to be flying?

And only a subsection of those who post on Cruise Critic participate in public polls where personal data is open to all prying eyes, Cruise Critic posters and those who just cruise Social Media...

Just because there is a rolling roof to cover the pool, don't count on it being covered in Alaska, even if it is cold. It might be open or closed.

We sailed on Zuiderdam to Alaska and not only was...

Smokers, especially balcony cigar smokers drove us and our friends off cruising HAL, altogether. Oh, I check in here once in awhile to see if it is safe to book a HAL cruise, but apparently it's...

I hope you had a very Merry Christmas, and will have a happy and prosperous New Year.

What if one lives on the west coast where flights to Europe (for example) are always the polar route? I can't imagine ever flying to the east coast and then transferring to another plane to fly over...

Crystal may be offering 5 boats, but Viking has been known to christen more than 5 boats in a single day! Aren't there like about 80 Viking boats already?

I sincerely hope Crystal rethinks the...

Then I hope tables are round, because I like elbow room and dislike having to eat at picnic-table tables.

So which lines should I avoid and which should I be looking at?

I would much prefer to be notified further in advance than any of the lines are doing, since I would already be in Europe a week or two before a river cruise and would be able to switch plans to a...

I agree with your last comment, about stuff being removed (and I do it), but that's as far as it goes.

As a parent, your best way to supervise your children is to be in the pool with them, whether...

I would prefer to be able to not line up with everyone at one time.

Could you arrive later and just stroll in, especially if you were at a small table?

Why don't you just pay to upgrade to a suite stateroom if they are available? Then if you cannot get as many specialty restaurant reservations as you want, your butler can serve you in your suite...

I think it would help if you either link to a picture of the item you think is very chic or insert a picture here with the tool available above the box here (it looks like a mountain).

I am totally confident that the croissants on Oceania will pass USDA inspection and that they do not harbor medflies. Aren't you? :rolleyes:

Actually, it is far more likely that a passenger could...

$5,000 for the stateroom ($2,500 per person)? How does that compare with the difference between the PH3 and the B2 when you first booked? The reason I ask is because you have to subtract that...

I am "the poster above". I don't squish croissants. They are too precious. Personally, for the croissants, I use firmer small plastic boxes that are made by Ziploc and intended to be disposable,...

You're welcome. I hope you will do a trip report as you have in the past. :)

I have taken baked goods ashore in many ports and never had a problem. Use a small plastic box or zip loc bags and stick this in your day bag. IF you have a problem (highly unlikely), just toss...

When I looked at post #10 I thought you were referring to the "clue" to the travel agent involved. Your smiley :) seemed to refer to that.

So then it's just Oceania's way of adding "NEW and IMPROVED !!!" to their advertising similar to how one hawks a box of detergent? ;)

Seriously, when a brochure states that a particular sailing...

The two TA voyages I mentioned in my earlier post are listed in the online summer 2016 36-page brochure. The name of the brochure is "Advance Preview 2016 Summer Collection." The top of the page...
