We will be there as well. I tried for the 2014 cruise but missed the cabins I was interested in.

30 days and no Burma.
The 35 day Bangkok to Istanbul on Nautica does include Burma.

I think if the "boss" puts it in writing, it means something. The Capetown to Singapore cruise with or without Burma was a wonderful time with our sailings with Oceania...35 days and we could have stayed longer, but had to come home!! Arlene

Thanks Frank - this means a lot to many of us faithful Oceania cruisers - the fact that you take the time to look at what your customers want, read their comments and then act on them is an unusual but welcome step for a cruise company executive. I don't believe I've ever seen that done by any of the bigger companies.

Kudos to you and Oceania.

Hi - we're in Birstall.

I wonder why the cruise isn't on sale here!

We too are interested in the 2015 Capetown to Singapore. Do hope it will become a reality as I don't think we have a hope of gaining a berth on Insignia.

No space on 2014 so we had to make other plans. If this comes about in 2015, I'm contacting my agent and ask that she start calling right away and have them put her on hold until they open the booking. (Guess she will have to sleep with headphones for the next year.)

Pacheco, start a roll call. What FDR says he will do, so let's go for it. (It will just be awful if we didn't get onboard.)

Found the roll call - you go "Arizona." Thank you for doing that. This will be one of the best cruises O has done--well, maybe--because of the roll call prior to an announced cruise. Ha Ha

FDR - you are truly amazing and I hope one day to have the pleasure of meeting you and thanking you in person for all you do and have done to make Oceania (and also Regent) our favorite cruise lines! We continue to make converts of our friends.

There are questions to be answered for this cruise, however it appears to be the Top Bucket List Item for us and we are going for it. Have cruises Oceania and Princess on long but not this long. We have found both to be excellent, however cabin size and ports are the key factors to consider.
All the best.

As to repeat meals, just think of how often your own home menu changes. We do change our meals but often according to fresh fruit and vegetables in season. Stir fry, BBQ and even home delivery or the Costco chicken "the eveready chook" per an Aussie term. More critical is the need to pace oneself at Oceania's restaurants. Plus port meals for a variety. We look forward to joining up with others on private tours.
