  1. Dear Mr. Ortega, If you see my postings, you will barely find anything negative but typical state-owned not customer-friendly institutions like German Railways or German Post. When Facebook started, it was a "happy" world, and you only "liked" but never "disliked." When I am breaking now my own rule, it would be my way to show my disappointment, that I will NEVER be able to post something positive from Oceania. I can fully understand that you had to do something this the US-Administration changed the rules for travels to Cuba, and I was booked for 2020 on a cruise with three Cuban ports: most cruise lines only call Havana and call it a Cuban journey, but you also offered a call in Cienfuegos and Santiago de Cuba. For me, it would be like booking a voyage to Yellowstone, Yosemite and Zion National Parks. On a ship, I loved to see again since I made two voyages when SIRENA was OCEAN PRINCESS. I love the size of the ship. But now you are offering the most boring itinerary of Harvest Cay, Belize; Roatan, Honduras, and Costa Maya, Mexico. For me it would be like, you are offering me a visit to Central Park, New York City, Golden Gate Park San Francisco and Bayfront Park in Miami. For the price of Yellowstone, Yosemite and Zion National Park. To tell me how generous it would be to honor my price and giving a massive discount on the catalogue price of 6.198 USD for 7 nights (which never existed before because we should go to Cuba - by the way: if I am going on the world's best cruise ship EUROPA 2 of Hapag-Lloyd I am paying about 600 USD/night for a suite including marble bathroom - and not an inside stateroom!), disappoints me. On your bill, you are still charging for a Cuba Visa of 75.00 USD, although we are not going to Cuba. You are not offering any OBC for staying with you. Or you are not offering any future cruise discount if we would on a different itinerary of our convenience with Oceania. Right now I am greeting you from Koper, Slovenia onboard of AZAMARA PURSUIT. Our first time and in January, we wanted to test Oceania. But after reading the messages my travel agent forward to me, the first thing I was doing was requesting my refund of my deposit and booking a time-slot with the future cruise consultant here on AZAMARA PURSUIT. I went 27 times on your mother/sister company NCL, and since I felt I am getting too old for NCL I hoped to be my next 27 times with Oceania but obviously, since you are treating me this way, my following 27 times would be with Azamara. All other cruise lines did everything to keep the customers with their lines when they had to change the itinerary, but Oceania. Sorry: something I hate to use: but shame on you, Oceania.

  3. Not so soon! But due to new Cuba policy a gap is now in our cruise schedule.
  4. Well - everybody goes with different expectations to his cruise. No matter how much I am paying for a cruise, I am expecting a) to be informed when they change a port like from Cobh to Ringaskiddy - at least all guests who booked so far. b) when I am calling and telling them that I got from the shore side information that there would be a port rotation in consideration, I am expecting MORE than just a look into the catalogue. There are guests who accept everything the cruise lines are doing to them. Not me. NCL was able to inform me 1 year ahead that our cruise will end in San Antonio but Valparaiso and I am expecting the same proper information by CMV. CMV told me that I have to take care by myself of transportation and after checking the bus schedules I decided to book a car rental. On board we learned that a shuttle to Cork would be offered. Other guests are passive and just wait what comes. I am not! I am expecting a qualified answer - especially when I am asking! No matter I am paying 100 GBP/night or 500 EUR/night like on Hapag-Lloyd’s EUROPA. In 97 cruises before this, this chaos happened only before one with Celebrity. So my expectations in Azamara is extremely low!
  5. Furthermore: we knew a couple of days that there would be a port rotation since our tour guide informed us that she still be available for a tour in a different day than originally booked. i am only upset because CMV Corporate Office did not confirm it and the ship told us that it was decided on the day of embarkation but obviously the harbor master in St. Mary’s knew it days before!
  6. When I booked in September 2017 (1 1/2 year ago) it was always Cobh. Since I am double checking the price from time to time in May 2018 Ringaskiddy appeared in the documents. My original booking confirmation shows Cobh!
  7. We should actually be in Cobh, Ireland, with MARCO POLO. Unfortunately, CMV had not informed us that we would dock in Ringaskiddy, Ireland instead of in Cobh. From here, we would have visited Blarney Castle. Have lunch at the English Market in Cork, Ireland and then appear at Hillside Garden for particular tea time. A few days ago, I received an e-mail that there would probably be a port rotation and that our guide would also be available on Saturday. Immediately I contacted CMV directly and asked Louise from our travel agency cruise.co.uk to double check with CMV: NO - a port rotation would not be known. Instead, in Ireland, we are now on the Isles of Scilly. We are lucky that our tourist guide Katherine is not booked and can walk the tour with us. Since I do not want to see any more tourists, she advises against a tour to Tesco and proposes to visit St. Agnes. An excellent idea, because we see much of the beautiful nature. Not so helpful for my meniscus, which later reminds me that I had a surgery recently on and should not walk so much. Still not a gala evening: do they really want to do the gala evening on the last evening, when everybody has to pack for debarkation? There are more tricks from I Putu and I Wayan. And there is something that is barely existing with others: a midnight buffet, which starts at 23:00 hrs. Well organized by Soe Min. https://heinbloed-minis.blogspot.com/2019/04/tagday-2-auf-deron-marco-polo-in-st.html Easter Sunday with MARCO POLO in somewhere of nowhere: Ringaskiddy, Ireland - a small village on the other side of Cobh, Ireland with a ferry terminal and a deep water basin - but without a commuter train. As a consolation, I take a beef patty with fried eggs for breakfast. Memories of childhood awake. Not only the port rotation was changed. But also the berth time. The car rental company has probably not noticed that we are now two hours earlier. On Good Friday, after the chaotic embarkation, the life drill and before the early dining, we had hardly any time to talk to each other in a calm atmosphere. But Easter Sunday also means that the English Market is closed, and even Mary of Hillside Garden cannot offer us tea time today. However, the driver who brings the car comes faster than we thought. He has to go back to Cobh and offers to take us over. When he realizes that we are hardcore cruisers, he shows us a bit more about Cobh and the relationship with TITANIC and LUSITANIA. Without further ado, he drives us to Blarney Castle, so we do not lose any more time to find the fastest way. It is charming at Blarney Castle. Unfortunately, so far away that my meniscus threatens to strike. I let the others run around alone and take a lot of breaks. Back on board, there is Tea-Time. But that is not as nice as with the other British companies. In the self-service restaurant - not even in a lounge. In the evening then the gala evening follows. Lobster is only available on pre-order with additional payment. Nevertheless, a ceremony they still have - something that we Americans no longer find for safety reasons: a Baked Alaska parade. Executive Chef Basheer comes to our table to ask how we like the food. And a farewell photo with I Putu and I Wayan and their supervisor Mr. Kandido. The show is too loud for us, so we go to bed early. https://heinbloed-minis.blogspot.com/2019/04/tagday-3-auf-deron-marco-polo-in.html Finally in Wales on MARCO POLO. The 19 miles as the crow flies in three days are over. It is interesting to watch Captain Sergiy at work. The yardarm is outside, and so you experience first hand the maneuver through the lock. Lerrine prepared the best cappuccino on board. I am wondering why they registered a credit card if you have to leave the ship after 11:00 hrs and then everything has to be paid in cash. Guest Service Manager Ronald helped us get aboard with Christina and Axel. Susan and Marc are not yet flying back to Germany. We take Christina and Axel to their hotel after we were taken by bus to the car. The fact that not everything is distributed to everyone at the same time makes everything seem very chaotic and disorganized. For us, it goes on to Folkestone, England. We would have liked to have eaten at the Marquis of Granby, like back then after the OCEAN PRINCESS 2015, but that does not work. The next day we will go back across France to Germany. We are the first to be back home. Now I am looking forward to AZAMARA PURSUIT and another ride through the Giudecca Canal on St. Mark's Square in Venice, Italy. The ship is only 18 years old. I am curious about what to expect there. You can read here again with all the other mini-cruises. https://heinbloed-minis.blogspot.com/2019/04/tagedays-4-5-auf-deron-marco-polo-in.html

  9. The new blog starts! Easter 2019: MARCO POLO - The ship is a month younger than me ... and I am 53. With 2*+ and 1,062 points with Douglas Ward, it can hardly go lower. Even ASTORIA (formerly STOCKHOLM, VÖLKERFREUNDSCHAFT, AZORES) has more points! Embarkation: Bristol, England Disembarkation: Cardiff, Wales 19 miles as the crow flies 38 miles on the road in three nights. But we are still a few days on the road, until embarkation. The first stage takes us to Neuss, Germany In a hotel that had some trouble in February 2019, they wanted to do something well. So it fits that I was able to visit my parents before. https://heinbloed-minis.blogspot.com/2019/04/tagday-0a-auf-dem-weg-zuron-way-to.html The second leg on the way to MARCO POLO takes us to Amsterdam, The Netherlands. It is "around the corner" on the way from Mannheim to Calais. For American standards! Friends of our friends are our friends too. So if the sister of our fellow-cruisers on CELEBRITY EQUINOX 2010 Sandy and Scott come to Europe and it fits in time, then we drive by. For dinner and a friendly conversation, there is always time! On the way, we go to visit another passenger from the MSC MERAVIGLIA: Gunnar. And shipspotting has to be: AIDAdiva is in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. But the stop costs a lot of time because everything is between Rotterdam and Amsterdam. Welcome to Amsterdam, Janice! https://heinbloed-minis.blogspot.com/2019/04/tagday-0b-auf-dem-weg-zuron-way-to.html Finally, we are heading to the English Channel to Calais, France. But if we are already in Holland. Now all the tulips are blooming. So we have to take the free color and aromatherapy with us. Thanks to our friends Ine, Joan, Aad, Nicoline, Thomas, and Marco, we find beautiful places on our way. It is even more beautiful than I imagined. In Blankenberge, Belgium, we pick up a meal that should have taken place three years ago: my party for the 50th birthday at Oesterput. In the evening we reach Calais. https://heinbloed-minis.blogspot.com/2019/04/tagday-0c-auf-dem-weg-zuron-way-to.html The next stage takes us under the English Channel to England as far as Bristol. Here we meet our fellow travelers: Christina, Axel, Susan, and Marc. We know them from various trips. https://heinbloed-minis.blogspot.com/2019/04/tagday-0d-auf-dem-weg-zuron-way-to.html Finally, she is here and finally, we are going on board: MARCO POLO in Bristol, England. We have the perfect location for shipspotting: with Kate of Avon View Bed & Breakfast in Portishead. On the OCEAN PRINCESS 2015 trip, we had a great tour guide in Bath, England: Ingrid. She is from Bristol. What could be more appropriate than to engage her again for a city tour for Bristol? I really do not feel comfortable with this cruise. This is more related to the organized chaos, which is independent of each other on board. But also in the headquarters of CMV. It ends up that we do not even get the mutual table. After intervening, we get a table for ten with a party of six. And so we get very nice waiters I Wayan and I Putu, who kill our time with magic tricks. https://heinbloed-minis.blogspot.com/2019/04/tagday-1-auf-deron-marco-polo-in.html I will notify when the next chapters of the blog are available.

  11. Unfortunately, even the most beautiful journey comes to an end: in this case the trip from Buenos Aires, Argentina to San Antonio, Chile on NORWEGIAN SUN. Too bad we do not arrive in Valparaiso: UNESCO World Heritage. Juan Victor Reyes arranged the transports for us: a direct transfer to the airport. For the transfer with stops in Santiago de Chile he even got a luggage tag, so that we can sit very relaxed in the vehicle. After Patagonia, a big city like Santiago de Chile is a difference between day and night. The return flights are on time, but also very chaotic thanks to LATAM. In Germany, we see a frozen lake and snow in the fields. On board, we see the last of the crew F & B Manager Cristian Oprera, Assistant Maître D 'Dejan Elakovic, Concierge Carlos, I Komang, and Ferdinand. The others are on their way home or already in other positions. Unfortunately, we can not say goodbye to Igor, to thank you for everything. In the end, it also says goodbye to Birgitt, Christian, Martina, Frances, Eddie, Rossita, Ekkehard, Plamen and Sigi. An exciting journey comes to an end. https://heinbloed-ncl.blogspot.com/2019/01/tagday-15-auf-deron-norwegian-sun-in.html

  13. Day 14 on the NORWEGIAN SUN is the last day at sea before a beautiful voyage comes to an end. Today is a lovely day: laze in the sun or run on the most beautiful jogging track in the world? Already during the sunrise, I enjoy the attentive service by Ralph Lauren Cabral: I should stay outside while he waits for my waffle. Rodalyn and Cherrylyn do an excellent job. I Komang sings for farewell again today, while I get a kiss from Mihaela. And finally a picture with Chef Paulo. A surprise awaits me in the morning: Nali has arranged an Indonesian breakfast for me. We recognize Louis Basili, whom we have already seen on another ship. And always with a friendly smile for us: I Gede Jaya Parwata. At lunchtime I look forward to seeing Bernita and Donovan having lunch again: the Jazz Brunch is back! Time to thank Guest Service Manager Claudia Condurachi again for the high performance of her team. After getting the last Clamato from the other bars for me, the team around TingTing, Gladies, and Dave still are busy to spice up a regular tomato juice so that I have an equal replacement. Unfortunately, this also meant saying goodbye to Rodalyn and Eugenia and their team at the Four Seasons main restaurant. Of course, the last ones we say goodbye to are Réka, Matyas, and Ábel from Atlantis Strings. https://heinbloed-ncl.blogspot.com/2019/01/seetagday-at-sea-14-auf-deron-norwegian.html
