  1. Yep, that's what I meant. I don't have that pdf (I'm not on the cruise), but I had mistakenly assumed that the number twelve was the pdf requirement. Our TA clarified it for us for our sailings. Total agreement there. That's what we do. It's too bad that this is not stated on the O materials, but our TA (again) made that clarification for us. Good reason for a good TA!
  2. I agree that what's in the cart is the total. But how many is needed to qualify for YWYW is confusing in the brochure My own experience with what was stated in the printed materials was that that number refers to each pax. I may have misunderstood CRUISE NH, thinking that the brochure said twelve when CRUISE NH had adjusted for 2 pax at 6 each.
  3. If you scan Nautica's sailings in 2022 and 2023 listed on the O web site, there are no holes in the schedule for a dry dock. The last sailings listed for her end in Barcelona on June 19, 2023. That suggests pinot's option #1 (Post 29 is incorrect) seems the more likely of the two options he gives.
  4. I think that both the 12 excursions and the unlimited pricing is per passenger.
  5. I think this is what Paul was referring to. "People get shingles when the varicella zoster virus, which causes chickenpox, reactivates in their bodies after they have already had chickenpox." If you have shingles, direct contact with the fluid from your rash blisters can spread VZV to "people who have never had chickenpox or never received the chickenpox vaccine. If they get infected, they will develop chickenpox, not shingles. They could then develop shingles later in life." These quotes are taken from: https://www.cdc.gov/shingles/about/transmission.html
  6. Pinot- This statement is a spin that ignores the vaccine's ability to minimize perhaps eliminate severe cases and death of those who break through the infection barrier.
  7. I think you mean a passenger may chose one complimentary per day, but there are 2 or 3 complimentary options to choose from. At least that's what our booking shows.
  8. We've booked the 2-week, January, 2023, OZ/NZ (mostly NZ) itinerary thinking it has a good chance of sailing. Stateroom selections were slim pickings. Hopefully airfares will retreat to more reasonable levels by then.
  9. I think you'll find most posters think that a TA who has a relationship with Oceania is the way to go. These folks can provide you with benefits such as prepaid gratuities and/or OBC that working direct with Oceania won't provide. We recommend a a members of Oceania's Cruise Connoisseur's Club for agents. They can provide the best service in unraveling the intricacies of Oceania and be invaluable in problem solving. CC doesn't permit naming agents on this board or exchanging email addresses for that purpose. If you book with an Oceania representative, you have some time to move it to an ag
  10. I thought the the same thing, but you were faster to post. 🤣🤣🤣🤣
  11. I vote on that it's more paranoia than prudence, but that's JMO.
  12. World Health Organization's Certificate of Vaccination that is the official document to verify Yellow Fever innoculations that is required for some countries.
  13. Same here as you. Early August cruises show availability. of course that doesn't mean they won't be cancelled 🤔
  14. "Once an FCC, always an FCC" is the standard motto among most cruise lines we follow. Usually the lines are upfront when the initial FCC is generated...that it cannot be redeemed for cash.
