  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. perhaps ... If you have a better WAG ... go for it.
  4. 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.
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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

May 26th :: Venice to Barcelona Marina anchored near Riviera off Miami Beach .... May 25th :: London to London Sirena moored on westside of Port of Miami Island .... May 15th :: Athens to Athens Nautica moored in Dubai .... May 19th :: Dubai to Rome Regatta underway for anchorage in L.A. .... May 25th :: Vancouver to Seattle Note that Canadian Ports are closed until July 1st Insignia moored in Tampa .... July 5th :: San Francisco to New York
  10. '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
  11. We have sailed 6 times with Oceania and the itinerary was changed 2 times due to weather. #1 Did not dock in Santa Marta, Columbia because 60 to 70 mph winds made navigating the narrow channel to dangerous. Had an extra sea day in route to Aruba. #2 Did not round Cape Horn in route from Punta Arenas to Ushuaia 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. Missing Ports of Call is better than being stranded ashore overnight, even is it was in Monte Carlo. https://www.express.co.uk/travel/cruise/1184340/cruise-ship-holiday-p-o-cruises-azura-monte-carlo-passengers-sleep
  12. If you have received an email that it was received that is good. In 2-3 days you should receive an email with a new invoice showing the credit applied on page 3 under the Amenities and Credit section. Once, we mailed the request form in 4-weeks in advance and did not get the 'recieved' email. Two weeks before sailing called them and reply was not received so had to mail a new request. One week before sailing called again and they said they had still not received so emailed photo's and finally got OBC. Contact persons are MValladares@oceaniacruises.com GSanchez@oceaniaregent.com
  13. NCLH does not pay a dividend. We use the shareholders OBC benefit as our pay-back. You have to fill-out a request form + a copy of your Brokerage monthly statement and and send them in to Oceania about 1 month before sailing. You will find all the necessary information here. http://www.nclhltdinvestor.com/static-files/91699aad-cb30-4ff6-8e40-4dc290cb03b5 http://www.nclhltdinvestor.com/static-files/43324b8a-1e18-43ab-9664-b05fe3b6d9e5 Carnival Corp is trading at $48 USD and pays $0.50 dividend per quarter. They also offer Shareholder OBC benefits on their various cruise lines. https://www.carnivalcorp.com/static-files/50351a91-4dc0-4f6b-bfec-684647e6129f
