Can anyone advise as to the actual Welcome Champagne bottle offered to the Concierge level cabins? What champagne house is it? TIA

Not to jump on this thread, but can the champagne be exchanged for a bottle of still wine?

Legally it's not Champagne unless it's from that region.

Reims is  the unofficial capital of the Champagne region.

Over the years, Oceania has rotated the brand. It has always been Champagne.

Appreciate you sharing that with us. I don't think I've ever heard that before.

I've been able to exchange it for a decent bottle of what they are pushing at the time. Haven't liked champagne since it gave me my first hang-over almost 70 years ago [talk about holding a grudge!].

We were able to exchange it for a better bottle of red by bringing the bottle to Polo.  The room steward can only exchange for the current house red or white.

I have actually seen two different brands of champagne. My mother had one, and my SO and I another, on the same cruise, in February. For the life of me I can't recall what either were and I just deleted the pics I took of the bottle in the wine cooler

Minirottle;

 

The complimentary bottle of champagne for Concierge and above is typically different from the champagne served by the glass at the bars and dining venues.

 

My TA grated us a bottle on one cruise. It also was chilling awaiting our arrival. It was different than the house  provided bottle.

 

The possibly always exists that since they rotate champagne offerings, your cruise may have been in a change over where some passengers got the outgoing brand and some got the new in coming brand . Only the menus in the Specialties never change! Champagne offering do!

I've seen Perrier Jouet and Veuve Clicquot. The PJ was in another cruisers suite and they at the time were one of the top cruisers on Oceania. I doubt everyone gets that one. I believe we got the Veuve Clicquot on our 20th cruise.

Years ago it was PJ in the Concierge cabins  then the last time we had it was Jacquart

I prefer PJ 😉

You might enjoy this 🙂  This artist, Guy Buffet, was hired by the French government IIRC to paint a series of paintings to celebrate some milestone birthday.  You'll recognize the flowers on the bottle but can you see the cork popping out and the letters PJ on it.  A favorite piece of ours.
