I would give anything to go, but DH just won't do those ports. If it had a lot of the Med, I could push it, but he is just not listening! I hope someone books it.

I've asked my TA to find out about how the segments will be divided

I might consider a segment

Depends on what the rest of the O itineraries look like

I have to ask, why doesn't DH want to do these ports?

Same here. If you hear anything please post it.

 

Would love to go to Myanmar. Our last Nautica (Capetown-Singapore) cancelled the port. Could also consider the first leg to Capetown.

While the Itinerary is fabulous, the cost of a PH3 totalling $150,000 on a 180 night trip equates to

 

$833 per night.

 

I know it includes first class air and a few other extras but I think that is way too expensive.

We too would like to take that Myanmar tour that we missed on that cruise. It was very disappointing....maybe if the segment is a good one, we can arrange it again!! I do see that it goes to Bali and the top end of Australia and the Great Barrier Reef, which we did on a Nautica cruie a few years ago, and well worth seeing. Arlene

I think the best way to get to myanmar,is a pre or post tour from Bangkok or Singapore,like they do to Anga Wat. Or just take The Road to Mamdalay from Orient Express

It's interesting that Regent no longer does world cruises but now Oceania does and is doing a longer cruise than any of the previous Regent world cruises.

Paul, Arlene

 

I already have the private shore excursions set. LOLOL

 

There is no way to determine what the segments are now. My TA heard back from his contact and it seems they have not been set it stone (probably will have to be worked out with the rest of itineraries for that time period). He promised to send them when they are available. It was suggested that segments may begin/end where there are overnights -- but who knows. These segments will be open for booking in September with the rest of the itineraries.

 

My TA has 100+ world cruisers among his clients. He sent this out to all of them. No response. I am not sure why O thinks folks will spend 180 on a small R ship other than in an Owners Suite. I think there will be plenty of room on the segments.

 

I would consider Capetown to Singapore or Shanghai to Bali

 

Jan Cruz -- do you have better information?

I wonder (if anyone knows) what percentage of these world cruises are booked by folks who do the entire cruise? I always see segments of world cruises being sold.

I wonder if First class RT air and all the other perks will be included with all the segments as well.

Otherwise, first class air for us from SFO to MIA is no big deal; to Asia or Cape Town is a different story.

Hard to believe it would be. Sign me up.

I would think these segments would be treated like any other regular cruise.

The "perks" seem to be an inducement to get folks to book for 180 days.

 

I have looked carefully at the possible segments. Some of them mimic 2014 itineraries for Nautica. I doubt O will offer two cruises from Capetown to SIngapore eg. I wonder if that means that Nautica will offer some "new" itineraries as FDR suggested.

I certainly see your point but in that case the first class air is not a big incentive for any US resident.

Correct

I never even thought of that.

They are offering the proverbial ice in winter! LOL

You are correct. Since O caters mainly to US citizens, not much of an incentive. And if you live in Florida . .

 

I wonder what the deduction is for the air. That would tell us something.

 

Maybe they are try to attract more folks from Europe, Down Under and Asia.

We do like long cruises but, maybe not quite this long. We do stay in an OS

but would probably go crazy even in it for 6 months. However, the biggest negative of this cruise are the many, many ports we would have no interest in seeing and so many others which we would love to see not included.

 

 

 

Hopefully there will be many people who will love the itinerary.

FWIW, it's called "Around the World in 180 Days" cruise, not World Cruise 2015. Very few people can handle the typical 110-120 day world cruises, so, I'd guess that "O's" not planning on many 180 dayers, but, they should do well on the segments.

Good point.

I am ready to book a segment with future cruise credit in hand.

Fun

 

I was thinking Capetown to somewhere

 

But the logical end points seem to be either SIngapore or Bangkok -- more than 35 days

And the closer they get to sailing dates of the segments the cheaper they will become.

Thinking the following --

 

Mia - Capetown

Capetown - Bangkok

Bangkok - Beijing

Beijing - Bali

Bali - Sydney

Sydney - Papeete

Papeete - LA (or SD)

LA to Miami

Isn't Capetown - Bangkok more than 35 days? Jan said 35 day max.

I'd book that in a heartbeat

 

Wripro

A high demand segment might not go down in price

EG the Capetown to Singapore cruise sells out. I suspect same would be true of that segment

 

Other segments -- different story.

 

A lot of it will be affected by what Oceania is offering on the 4 other ships.

MIA - Capetown is 35 days

Capetown - Bangkok -- I think is 33 days.

 

I would now be interested in what happens to Nautica..

 

She ends in Capetown on 22 Dec 2014.. Does she go back to Singapore or does she go up the east coast of Africa or do they reposition her to Brazil to do the South American run...???

I find it kind of humorous that they are offering first class air to full world cruisers. Considering that the cruise begins and ends in Miami, that's not much of a perk for North American guests.

Guess I counted wrong

I'm ready

Capetown to Bangkok - perfect for us -- all new ports except Thailand and Cambodia (I will make that a sea day --). We want to go back to Bangkok as we only spend a few days there in the past. Really want to go to Capetown.

I wish they'd take the booking today

I know which cabin I want.

Oh well -- I will just have to hope it's available in September.

 

It does make one curious regarding how Nautica's itineraries will be affected.

Paul, Capetown to Singapore when we went was 35 days - so I guess if they went directly to Bangkok, it would be about 33 - Also, as for First Class air - how about us folks who live in Florida - I guess it would be a nice deduction from the price!!:rolleyes: Most of the "legs" may be places all of us have been at one time or another - guess we have to wait and see. I would truly like to get to Burma! The Bali/Sydney leg you propose is a wonderful one! Arlene

He doesn't want a lot of the ports because we have been there. We have actually been to some of them over 4 times. There is also the time of the year. He is also hesitant to go anywhere where there is any discontent. I have to respect him as he put up with me working so very many hours a day most of our life. I just roll with what he agrees to.

I see that you think First Class air isn't a big deal in America. Well, the fares are going up--a lot and I think that this is a nice perk. I don't know if Oceania has a contract with AA, but I would have welcomed that!

 

Don't forget that they are taking care of Visas. After getting a Visa for Brazil a couple of years ago--I REALLY think that is nice.

 

The laundry is good. Wish they had dry cleaning.

 

I personally think it is a good deal, but I would like the whole cruise.

 

Here's something funny! I would miss getting my hair done! LOL

IMHO and at my age, the biggest perk is full medical..it is always such a hassel trying to get money back from the insurance company..I always seem to go to the medical center for some dumb thing..rash, cough, runny nose etc. and I just got $450 back from a $1200 bill in December on Riviera..so to me..a big PLUS

I really wonder what they mean by full medical......will you have to provide a Certificate first of being in good health. I mean lets be honest, the ships Doc is not equipped or able to carry out any large procedures so I am guessing they will just get you off the ship ASAP in the event of a major issue.

 

As always it is in the fine print.

Does the brochure (which we haven't received) list dates for this leg? We love the Nautica itinerary, but can't travel in January. Marlene
