  1. All this speculation in this thread is worthless!
  2. I suggested Lady Jane Grey to the captain; he smiled .
  3. Oceania's been doing this since inception, and, getting away with it. Says much about them. RE: port fees.
  4. ''Mr.or Ms. EXCITED/Congratulations/Your timing obviously lucked out for you/Not so for many others of us. We not so fortunate with timing are not being treated fairly. I canceled a cruise about 2 hours before Oceania announced cancellations. Resultant thereof I was denied refund, acquired FCC instead, but at only 100%, not the 125% offered those who didn't cancel themselves. An added note, when re-booking, the FCC is considered a SAVINGS, not a deposit or payment, and you'll need to make a new cash deposit of $750pp. And, your travel agent, who wasn't protected for commission on the cancellation. will receive little or no commission on the re-book since the FCC is being treated as a SAVINGS, not a payment. And, for Jan, talk to the BOSS and get this travesty corrected.
  5. Sorry Jan, but many of us canceled days after Oceania should have canceled which, in my case, was several days after Princess and Viking canceled. We should not be penalized for our prompt action. Perhaps a chat with the BOSS is in order.
  6. The crossing now ends in Barcelona on 4/15, not Civitavecchia. 4/11 Malaga 4/12 Sea day 4/13 Valencia 4/14 Mallorca 4/15 Barcelona.
  7. So, has he heard of you, and why would he? And, correction, every third grader would have said ''You're"", not your!
  8. So, who's Capt. MAX. Never heard of him.
  9. So, China, who was the ''New Captain, an improvement'''? Agree that the Riviera/Marina pizza is pitiful; it's a shame since the pizza on the OLD ships was always very good!
  10. POTHOLE repairs should be high on the agenda.
  11. Just searched, found nothing. Any idea when they'll be released?
  12. Okay, here goes! 1) The aft elevator doesn't go down to the dining room. We both have knee issues, as well as one of our two traveling companions, so, we all had to schlep to the front elevators to go down, and, then schlep half way across the ship to the dining room. 2) Then, when in the dining room, to go to the facilities, you have to schlep cross country to get to them, passing the casino and shops on one side and the Explorer Lounge and shops on the other side. You don't have to be a genius to recognize that the facilities should be closer to the restaurant. 3) The lighting in the Observation lounge is awful. Less than half the seats are agreeable to reading. 4) The Observation Lounge does not have a coffee facility. You need to schlep from below, the coffee lounge or go cross country to the other side of the pool. Further, why doesn't the neighboring card room which offers soda and water also offer coffee. Oceania's two ships, Marina and Riviera, offer coffee, etc. in that lounge. 5) They offer two ''SLIMLINE'' elevators in the front of the ship. FDR and others should have recognized from Riviera and Marina, ages ago, that it was an awful design. Passengers in the front need to exit to allow those in the back to exit. 6) The dining room is nothing special. We prefer the openness of Marina and Riviera. We'd equate Explorer with the Viking ships. 7) The pool grill is pitiful. First visit was about 10 minutes for a hamburger. Second visit was over twenty minutes. When I confronted a head waiter, his response was'' I guess everybody was looking for a hamburger today''. I responded that he should probably still we waiting tables. 8) The most pitiful internet service ever received on a crossing. There were none even close to that bad, and, we had done over forty crossings before, including 6 on Sea Dream, a tiny ship with less than 100 passengers. I could add a few complaints as to the service, but, I'll let that pass. Cheerio!
  13. Didn't think this was possible, but, were denied on a ""restricted"" fare. Also denied AMEX platinum credit!
