  1. We did the add on Premium Economy on our Free cruise so it worked out good for us. Not that I need a hat or tote, but for those that don't have any and are just over 20 and are a long way from 40 perhaps they should give them a one time hat & tote. Others are eligible every five cruises, so if they keep cruising Oceania they'll get one. Not complaining, just observing. I don't use half the hats or totes I have anyway, it just seems to be the principle of it.
  2. Where are the T & C's coming from? I can't seem to find that on the website. Edit, never mind, I found it.
  3. I guess maybe they're putting the same value on the hat and tote as the free cruise. 😆 Not really an incentive for me to shoot for 40 as that is 17 away.
  4. That's odd, you don't see where it says "Complimentary Prepaid Gratuities" with a green check mark by it?
  5. It all depends on which single malt you order. I've tried to get Oban in Horizons before, but was not allowed on the package, although it's not any more expensive than the top Macallan that is allowed on the package. With Oceania it's not about the price of the drink. The point I'm trying to make is if it isn't on the Bar Menu or Martini menu then technically they are not supposed to serve it to you with the Prestige Package. I'm sure there is quite a bit of slippage through the cracks for various reasons.
  6. Could you post the letter?
  7. Captain's Welcome party is usually second night. Free drinks in most bars around the ship for a few hours. Sometimes there are other special activities, but no telling when they might happen.
  8. I've traveled with Corey several times. He used to be an Assistant CD. His first cruise as the main CD was the one with the engine fire on Insignia. Talk about being thrown right in. I wasn't there but that was a mess.
  9. On our first Oceania cruise in 09 there was an Upclose magic guy that went around to the tables in Horizon during happy hour. We was actually quite impressive. I haven't seen one quite like that since.
  10. There are some people when you ask them what time it is tell you how to build a watch.
  11. I always walk on with an open bottle in my hand. 😎😆🤣
  12. I have one of those custom or Combo cruises booked and although it has one reservation # I get two cruise credits for it. It is only 20 days, had it been an Extended voyage that would only get you one credit.

    No where did it say everyone needed a YF shot. I believe some people incorrectly interpreted it this way. Here is what the letter says. Please post if you have a different one. Perhaps they sent one out I didn't get. IMPORTANT HEALTH INFORMATION Dear Valued Guests and Travel Advisors, As the health and welfare of our guests and crew is paramount, we would like to remind you of the following health requirements for your upcoming voyage. Your itinerary may include ports in one or more countries of the areas listed below. HEALTH REQUIREMENTS Yellow Fever Inoculation and Malaria Prophylaxis: AFRICA ASIA (INDIA*) NORTH AMERICA (ST. LUCIA*) SOUTH AMERICA* *Note Colombia, India and St. Lucia require proof of inoculation or a physician’s letter if guests are arriving from an endemic area. We encourage concerned guests to use this Health Notice as a reminder to consult the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention site and more importantly, their physician to make the best decision based on their overall health. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website is: http://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING THE YELLOW FEVER VACCINE YF-Vax, the only yellow fever vaccine licensed in the United States, is currently out of stock. Until YF-Vax becomes available Stamaril, an alternate vaccine created by Sanofi Pasteur with the assistance of both the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Guests able and planning to obtain the vaccine: kindly arrive onboard already vaccinated and have your signed and stamped International Certificate of Vaccination or Prophylaxis (ICVP, sometimes called the “yellow card”) with you should proof be required. For a list of locations where Stamaril is currently available in the United States click on the following link: https://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/page/search-for-stamaril-clinics Our vessels will have limited amounts of Stamaril in case of emergency. Oceania Cruises does not require proof of inoculation, nor will deny guests embarkation. Please note however, the countries the vessel calls to or the port agent(s) at the pier may require proof of vaccination(s) prior to allowing a guest to go ashore. For guests unable to take the vaccine(s) listed as required by the CDC, please bring a letter from your physician to turn in should it be requested.
  14. Not to mention that on the O ships there are no doors.
  15. Are there any trains running between those locations?
