  1. Do you mean you are looking for the rollcall on CC? Here it is: https://www.cruisecritic.com/rollcalls/marina-january-28-2021/
  2. You are booked on what Oceania calls a “Grand Voyage”. Other cruise lines call it a back to back. Your deposit is not based on the cost of your cabin or suite, see below... Per the Oceania Terms and Conditions: Deposit & Payment Policy The per person, per cruise deposit required to secure your reservation is 20% of the applicable cruise fare for Owner's, Vista and Oceania Suites and $750 for all other suite/stateroom categories; for Grand Voyages the per person deposit is $1,500. Bookings made more than 120 days from sailing are required to deposit 20% of the applicable cruise fare for Owner's, Vista, and Oceania Suites and $750 for all other suite/stateroom categories within 7 days of booking. Bookings made between 91 and 120 days of sailing are required to deposit by the end of the booking day. Bookings not deposited as per this schedule will automatically be cancelled.
  3. I stand corrected. Yours has no mention of payment in full. Hmmmmm. I do agree that you should discuss this thoroughly with your TA, and have them pushback to Oceania. Even my Regent cancelation notice (just checked it also, different month scheduled), says paid in full. Dispute with CC company.
  4. I am a bit confused? Please copy/paste the wording from your email note from your TA. We also received email information from our TA with the following: NOTE KEYWORDs are “Paid in full” For our upcoming cruise: (we canceled): From our Oceania email: NO-PENALTY CANCELLATIONS Once paid in full, cancel for any reason up to 48 hours prior to departure and receive a Future Cruise Credit equal to 100% of the cruise fare paid. Valid for all existing reservations for scheduled voyages departing through September 30, 2020. Update – Now valid for all new reservations through June 30th for scheduled voyages departing through September 30, 2020 Future Cruise Credit is valid for redemption for one year from date of issue for travel departing no later than December 31, 2022
  5. I was just reading the same thing! OMG! How sad for those folks, but hey at least they have good food and beverage (per the article)!
  6. I googled Carnival Liberty Door Width, and found this: https://www.carnival.com/about-carnival/special-needs/wheelchair-users.aspx you will need a handicapped cabin for that scooter it looks like. It’s too wide for the 21” maximum.
  7. You do understand that there are fewer than half a dozen children on most cruises on Oceania, right? Take a look at Other Premium plus and Luxury lines for what Oceania’s competition really is. It is not the mass mkt lines! I would imagine Oceania knows their target market pretty good.
  8. I know you’ve thought of this, but here’s my take...We’ve had everything from a Camry to a Prius, and everything small in between pick us up ordering an Uber X. Do you have any friends with a Prius? Try the wheelchair in it, see if it fits, try a Ford Escape, or another small car..not sure anyone can tell you exactly yes or no, as there are 15 or so styles of cars that are acceptable for Uber X rides (per search on Uber X in google).

This list is just to give you an idea.

  9. As I am very familiar with Paws With a Cause, and volunteer for Southeastern Guide Dogs, I can assure you, he didn’t pay $25k for the dog. I am sure he meant $25, for the fee. There is no charge for dogs through either of these charities. If he used an online funding, I feel for the folks that donated, as they were duped. Also, dogs are trained for inside and outside, so I believe he received a fake dog from another vendor.
  10. The last time we were on Riviera (Christmas 2018), all loungers around pool were “Saved” via purse, blanket, books, hats, etc by 9 AM. Table overflowing with stuff by 11 AM, people having pissing contests and one yelling fight with a bit of puffing up their chests. We got up and left. Good thing for larger balconies in our case. We never went back to deck during sea days.
  11. Ya’ll do realize that this poster is mentioning site medrxiv which is NOT peer reviewed and as such is a breeding ground for “unsubstantiated” claims. This is not a credible source in the US In the AMA’s eyes, and does in fact cause the mob effect for fear mongering. Pls, all, make your own decisions on fact, your physicians recommendations, based on your situation, not some anonymous poster on an open forum.
  12. You may wish to create a new thread concerning your POC and questions you have concerning the batteries and Princess (I feel it is probably across the board, as all cruise lines approve and allow POC’s and batteries for them onboard), and place it on the disability board listed here: https://boards.cruisecritic.com/forum/114-disabled-cruise-travel/ as this is an unrelated topic to this 2016 thread, and it would get more visibility and answers.

    It has nothing to do with age, Ponant advises on their website, many cruises that list this requirement for every passenger. Don’t like it? Don’t cruise with them on the cruises listed. for example, the Miami to Lisbon cruise states: We remind you that all our ships have a doctor on board and medical facilities. However, these cannot, under any circumstances, be compared to any medical structure on land. Given the remote areas in which we will be sailing for a number of days, safety requirements mean that we are obliged to ask each passenger signing up for this program to provide us, no more than 45 days before departure, with a medical certificate from their GP, as well as the completed medical questionnaire received during registration.
  14. It has nothing to do with age. Ponant has guests submit medical forms on certain cruises, as per their information outlined, and documented on the specific cruise.....for example, the Miami to Lisbon cruise states: We remind you that all our ships have a doctor on board and medical facilities. However, these cannot, under any circumstances, be compared to any medical structure on land. Given the remote areas in which we will be sailing for a number of days, safety requirements mean that we are obliged to ask each passenger signing up for this program to provide us, no more than 45 days before departure, with a medical certificate from their GP, as well as the completed medical questionnaire received during registration.
  15. Since this is a luxury board, you may wish to ask this question on the “ask a question” board for general consumption.
