Does Concierge Class still offer hot breakfasts?  I thought I read that somewhere but do not see it in any of Oceania's literature.

I was about to say "Oh, yes!" based on our concierge experience 8 months ago.  Now I'm not so sure.  I'm reading the massive 2021 brochure that arrived in the mail yesterday.  It is completely silent on the subject of breakfast, hot or otherwise, in concierge suites, and in the suite section. 

 

It does specifically mention expanded lunch and dinner room service options from the main dining  room for concierge suites. So it follows to think that a hot breakfast would also be allowed.. but I can't say with certainty.

Doing concierge on next cruise. The cabin location on deck 7 is certainly a good reason alone to do concierge.  Deck 7 is really quiet.  On Azamara, we have stayed in deck 7 and recently on 8.  Deck 7 is quieter. Deck 8 has some noise from above. Never interrupted my sleep. Worth spending extra to be on deck 7.

We are booked concierge for our first O cruise next April on Sirena.

With being able to book specialty restaurants starting 60 days before sailing, are there usually tables for 2 still available?

We are flexible as far as the dining time, but would rather not have to share a table.

Only on the R ships

Oceania has 2 sizes of ships  so sometimes best to clarify  the ship size/class

Yes  they usually hold back tables  for the  lower cabins  also

We have always  gotten a 2 top  in A, B or C  cabins

 timing is everything

On the larger Oceania ships, I have traveled twice in category B veranda cabins, not concierge. When I booked them, I was concerned about getting table for 2 in specialty restaurants.  Booked 45 days prior to boarding and was able to get tables for 2 in almost every restaurant.  On our first cruise, we could not get a table for 2 in Jaques until the last night. We spoke to the maitr’d and was able to share a table on the first night. The other 2 couples were great. Had a fun time and have remained friends. 

 

In post #79 above, I should have mentioned that we like deck 7 when sailing on an R ship. Next cruise in concierge A2 on Sirena. looking forward to see the new updates.

it is funny  that on the descriptions  of the cabins

B to G say Complimentary  24 hr room service  but it is not listed  for the Concierge

I think it is  a case of who ever put this stuff online  there is  no one proof reading   it

It's everything that the other cabins get and more.  And the room service menu is more expanded.

You're preaching to the choir, clo.  LHT28 is one of the most knowledgeable posters on this board and a go-to for information about Oceania.

Over ten years ago we had a motorhome and visited the Malibu RV Park.  It's oceanfront, across the PCH from the ocean.  Along there the PCH runs east to west so you get both sunrise and sunset.  A stunning place.

Thanks, Denise.  You're so nice.

Best,

Cath

You gave the link for verandah and I gave the link for verandah concierge.  That's all.

First time Oceania cruiser, so forgive me if this has been asked hundreds if times. Can you swap the bottle of champagne for red or white wine?
