  1. Several .... First ever cruise ... thru Panama Canal then going under the Golden Gate Bridge upon arrival in SFO on Regatta Sailing upriver on Sirena with overnight in Sevilla First light over ‘The Rock’ with dawn arrival in Gibraltar on Riviera Passing by Castillo del Morro when entering Havana on Sirena Sunday Brunches on Riviera, Regatta, Sirena .... disappointment ... unable to round Cape Horn on Sirena because of Force 7 storm
  2. Cabin “size” has not changed. Sirenia Veranda cabin https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=xcI7ojQegXQ Sirenia Penthouse cabin https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Ut-fgfVkMqw Sirenia Owners Suite https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=xWXtYMi8fbQ Sirenia Full ship tour https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=8SBa5i9WnK4
  3. Canceled our Sirena August 26 sailing yesterday. Wanted to get in refund line early. Was able to transfer the Future Cruise Credits to a October 2022 voyage.
  4. Yes, two cruises booked. Fall 2021 cruise is using 125% Future Cruise credit and OBB benefit from canceled cruise. Fall 2022 cruise is new. Booked directly by phone (not on-board) but asked for and received a OBB credit. Don’t know if being a NCLH stockholder helped ... but greatly appreciated.
  5. No sailing so the On-Board-Booking discount is not possible but in our case, I am reporting two instances regarding OBB credit. ( ... FYI, because of our Oceania Club status, we receive pre-paid gratuities and book directly with an Oceania agent ... ) In 2019, we on-board-booked a Fall 2020 cruise which was canceled by Oceania. When I called to booked a Fall 2021 cruise, I asked about receiving the previous on-board booking credit. The agent was able to immediately apply the prior on-board credit to the new booking. I have now booked a 2022 Fall cruise and a
  6. marinetraffice.com shows that Nautica is currently in Bacino di Carenaggio 4 (dry dock #4) at the San Giorgio del Porto shipyard in Genoa https://www.sgdp.it/facilities.php My guess and hope is that she is undergoing the OceaniaNEXT refit
  7. At 13:00 UTC, about to exit Suez Canal headed for Genoa Italy. Follow the Ship position at: https://www.marinetraffic.com/en/ais/details/ships/shipid:711476/mmsi:538001665/imo:9200938/vessel:NAUTICA
  8. perhaps ... If you have a better WAG ... go for it.
  9. The Nautica OceaniaNEXT refit would have been scheduled well in advance and does not require a shipyard ‘dry-dock’. The new cabin interiors and public area updates would also have been made prior to the shut-down and at least partially paid for well in advance ... perhaps as much as 70%. IMO, everything is/will be there ... so just waiting for the ship ... and will go ahead.
  10. Getting ready for a Trans-Atlantic. The Facebook posting by the Port Authority explains the reasoning very well. They need the docking $$ https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=3184720808225427&id=110419635655575
  11. We are booked on a September 14 Nautica sailing and will/would be onboard if the planes fly and the ship sails. Will wait and if/when it is ‘Officially’ canceled by O, we will take the 125% FCC and book the August 26, 2021 30-day Southampton R.T. on Sirena.
  12. On the O website all the July sailings are Wait Listed. First availability is August 5th. FDR interview from here: https://www.cruisecritic.com/news/5340/ does not look very promising for the R ships this year.
  13. Sunday morning, April 26 update .... Riviera and Marina are anchored at Great Stirrup Cay Sirena is enroute to Great Stirrup Cay Regatta is enroute to Ensenada, Mexico Nautica remains moored in Dubai Insignia remains moored in Tampa
  14. Information is from latest Oceania website and Marinetraffic.com Riviera anchored near Marina off Miami Beach ....

  15. 'Flatbush Flyer' was on the Sirena Buenos Aires to Lima sailing and we were on the return Lima to BA sailing. We did not round Cape Horn in route from Punta Arenas to Ushuaia on March 29, 2019 because of very stormy weather and rough seas. This transit is problematic any time of year so stayed overnight in Punta Arenas and sailed the Strait of Magellan and Beagle Channel instead. Was looking forward to getting a gold ring in my left ear. https://www.livescience.com/33099-why-did-pirates-wear-earrings-.html
