  1. Interesting. The itinerary you mention may be the one in which the experience may be difficult to differentiate from what you may get on RC. The main difference between the Endeavour and the RC yacht is that Endeavour is designed as a luxury expedition yacht with a focus on “expedition style” destinations whereas RC is touting its product as the equivalent of its hotels but on the water and will not leave the Atlantic basin.
  2. Bamboo (reusable and biodegradable) and metal (less convenient) straws are good alternatives to paper straws and can be easily found nowadays. They may not be economically viable for Crystal but people who need/like straws could bring their own.
  3. Last minute decision, super excited to go back- to Symphony for this seven day cruise to Alaska, less than a month to go! Only two people on the roll call. Any others who haven't posted there?
  4. Redundant post, forgot to select to be notified of replies
  5. I just heard that Oceania has cancelled the overland two day tour in Egypt. I have friends on board who were booked on it and I know they’ll be super disappointed. Are you still looking for others interested in going with you? Let me know and I’ll pass your name and cabin number to my friends (there’s two of them) in case they’re still keen on going to Cairo. Thanks!
  6. Hi Eager, cabins on deck 9 (regardless of which ship) are completely unobstructed.
  7. Another benefit of the larger verandah is that you can ask for a lounge chair instead of a regular chair. I have done this twice and really enjoyed it.
  8. Thank you so much! It looks awesome.
  9. We’re booked on the Ovation in December and very excited about this new venue. Does anyone have a menu they can post? Thanks!
  10. https://photos.app.goo.gl/LQpSSQXpduutQKjPA Hope this works.
  11. Adding to my post above, we did a transatlantic on Symphony in 2014 and while not our most favourite Crystal cruise (too much jazz everywhere, all the time, which we're not terribly fond of), there were many, many, many excellent activities to fill the days.
  12. I just did my first (and likely last) Oceania cruise on the Regatta in February, the days at sea were incredibly boring. This only got worse when being outdoors was not possible due to weather. On the other hand, if you love bean-bag toss you'll have a blast.
  13. Details about the itineraries and booking availability for the Venture are expected to be out in the spring of 2019. We can only hope 🙂 I should note that is “spring of 2019” info was just released to travel agents a few days ago and is different from the earlier announcement of “fall of 2019”.
