Cruise booked.....a few questions


Recommended Posts

My wife and I just book the January 28th 10 day on the Riviera. When can you book excursions and restaurants?

 

Thanks

Also, register your account online with Oceania. Then you can manage your voyage online. You will need your invoice number from your Oceania statement.

Enjoy!

You have plenty of time for flights and lodging, but do pay close attention to your specialty restaurant deadline.  Wave to me on Feb 7.  I get on when you disembark.  Enjoy!

 Specialty restaurants it depends on what cabin cat you are in

 see

https://oceaniacruises.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360005477653-How-many-dining-reservations-am-I-allowed-in-each-specialty-restaurant-

 

The date should be on your invoice

Thanks for the link!

 

I'm a bit confused. It says:

 

Concierge Level Veranda, Veranda, Ocean View and Inside Stateroom 
All cruises: 1 reservations at each restaurant 

 

But also:

 

All other categories 
Cruises 17 days or less: 1 reservations at each restaurant 
Cruises 18 days or more: 2 reservations at each restaurant 

 

So on 18 days cruise - is it 1 or 2 at each restaurant?

 

Also, we don't like one of the restaurants, can we replace it with another one?

I personally wouldn't wait. I like locking my flights and hotels in asap. There is a huge demand on hotel rooms right now. People are getting out and traveling. Where I live we're set to have a record year. I'd be willing to bet the same for most other tourists areas. I usually only do hotels that I don't have to prepay, with a few exceptions.

 Depends upon ship and cabin level.  You cannot replace a restaurant choice prior to boarding, the system will not allow it.  However, you can easily do that once onboard.

That would be on an R ship in a category higher that PH. I think that's right. There are another set of rules for the O ships. 

 

I went to the link and looked and it appears that AK has cut the bottom part for the O Ships and another part from the R ships. 

 

Here is the whole thing, which has two separate policies. 

 

Guests are permitted to make the following reservations in our specialty restaurants - which vary by ship, category and length of cruise: 

Marina and Riviera 
Owner’s Suite, Vista Suite and Oceania Suite 
Cruises 7 days or less: 1 reservation at each restaurant 
Cruises 8-17 days: 2 reservations at each restaurant 
Cruises 18 days or more: 3 reservations at each restaurant 

Penthouse Suite 
Cruises 17 days or less: 1 reservations at each restaurant 
Cruises 18 days or more: 2 reservations at each restaurant 

Concierge Level Veranda, Veranda, Ocean View and Inside Stateroom 
All cruises: 1 reservations at each restaurant 

 

___________________________________________________________________________

Insignia, Nautica, Regatta and Sirena 
Concierge Level Veranda and above 
Cruises 7 days or less: 1 reservation at each restaurant 
Cruises 8-17 days: 2 reservations at each restaurant 
Cruises 18 days or more: 3 reservations at each restaurant 

All other categories 
Cruises 17 days or less: 1 reservations at each restaurant 
Cruises 18 days or more: 2 reservations at each restaurant

We are on Marina. I read the link again and it looks like Marina and Riviera it's only 1.

It still depends on room category and length of cruise. Which category are you in and how long is your cruise?

Yes, looks like 1 in each restaurant, but there should be no problem getting more once on board.

The fact that specialty restaurants are include is awesome.  It would cost roughly $1000 to eat in a specialty each night on Celebrity for a 12 day cruise.

The great thing about Oceania is - you’ll get a GREAT dining experience every night whether you eat in a specialty restaurant or in the GDR. Celebrity can’t say that!

I'm trying wrap my head around what to wear to dinner. I've watched a view videos and never saw any men in a jacket or sports coat. In fact the person doing the tour said no jackets or sport coats are needed.  Per Oceania web site it looks like jackets are requested? Some people say no jackets require some say they are. I'm planning on wearing dockers or khaki for pants and either a polo or button dress shirt and dress ish shoes. I'm not planning on taking a jacket, not on a southern caribbean cruise.

Jackets are not required, but some men chose to wear them occasionally in the specialty restaurants.  What you describe would be the norm, even for a non-Caribbean cruise.
