  1. For me it's a superior experience all the way around compared to the self serve buffets. There will always be some people that don't like it.
  2. I've never heard about the hair dryer exclusion. The only thing I can find prohibiting them from the Oceania website in prohibited items is this; Items brought on board the vessel and not supplied by the Company containing any kind of heating element, such as but not limited to: immersion heaters, heating blankets, flat irons, water heaters, coffee machines with heating/hot plates, etc. Is that what you are referring to? I know my wife always brings hers and had no idea we were breaking the rules. As common as a hair dryer is I would think they would have added it to the list to reduce confusion. I know my wife also brings her curling iron which would fall under this also. I'm pretty sure she wouldn't travel without it. How about it ladies, do you bring your own?
  3. Is this a B2B or a Grand Voyage? According to what has been posted you should have only 1 per restaurant.
  4. My mistake, I was thinking of the Solstice.
  5. New? Haven't these been on Equinox at least a couple of years?
  6. I hope this doesn't come off as one of those picky type posts, this is just a FYI. There is no Executive Concierge lounge. There is an Executive lounge for those in PH & up and there is a Concierge lounge for those in the Concierge level rooms. Concierge on 9 and Executive on 11. Basically they're the same except for furnishings.
  7. ORV

    DC to Miami

    The domestic credit is generally around $250 to $300 per person. I'm not a fan of flying in the day of the cruise but I can't fly anywhere from our market for that.
  8. It's certainly better than a regular veranda.
  9. Stayed at an AI there once. One of the worst vacations I've ever had, horrible food, horrible service, horrible drinks that I had upgraded to the VIP package for. In all fairness it was a beautiful property with a great beach. Group of 6 and by the end or 3 or 4 days we were all living on Immodium, Pepcid and toast. At least nobody died like the folks there recently. I could see how someone with a weak system could.
  10. I think that’s still a lot for an OV.
  11. Which ship? Is that total or per person?
  12. I went with iconic. It was a young man in his 30s that owns the company. It was a very good tour.
  13. Very interesting Railway Station there. I guess we don't have a wide angle lens.
  14. It's not just before or after drydocks that you might encounter painting, varnishing, strong smells. Fortunately/unfortunately Oceania always tends to have ongoing maintenance. It's a Catch 22, if they do that type of ongoing maintenance then people complain about the smells, if they don't then people complain the ship is getting worn and shabby.
