  1. When comparing Oceania to HAL, another consideration is that specialty restaurants are included in the fare. Also included are all non alcoholic beverages, mock tails and water, sparkling and still.
  2. It was Niuew Amsterdam. It wasn’t a big problem, just a minor annoyance. We were thankful that we could check on the TV in our cabin, so it just involved a stop at the Neptune lounge.
  3. Another use for on board credit is gratuities. If they are not part of a promotion or prepaid by your TA, they will be automatically deducted daily from your ship board credit. 14.50 p/p per day. Also, enjoy a glass of wine with dinner or a mock tail while enjoying the view.
  4. Just from my experience.... we preordered 4 specialty dinners. 2 tamarind 2 pinnacle i had to ask at Neptune lounge for 25% discount each time and twice for the last one. Dont wait until last minute, as lines get busy towards end of cruise. Also, if you prepay for internet, check your bill. Our traveling companions prepaid and it appeared on their bill on board as well. It took until the next to last day for credit.
  5. No need to be “bamboozled”. I am not on the King....I am on the nieuw Amsterdam. The entrance is NOT next to the main entrance. It is between the 2 sets of elevators. yes, CO lunch is not included, however, CO section had an attendant and I asked if this was the correct place and he escorted us the CO section. I see why people are reticent to supply valuable information, because so many people question the validity. I’m on board right now. No separate CO section on NA.
  6. And entrance is marked with an unimaginative sign that looks like.... detour or men’s room this way. Nothing premium about it!
  7. Quick response separatr entrance on 2 not main entrance still pinnacle for breakfast tried club orange for lunch taken to back of restaurant tables on top of each other printed paper menu with 3 mediocre choices. We left w/o eating and ate at pinnacle for $15 each. It was worth it! i will try to answer more later k
  8. I am currently on Nieuw Amsterdam in a Neptune suite and I am not impressed with club orange. I will give a full report when I am home. The club orange entrance is like a dungeon...right next to elevators on deck 2 any questions? k
  9. You're preaching to the choir, clo. LHT28 is one of the most knowledgeable posters on this board and a go-to for information about Oceania.
  10. Maybe it was “the drink of the day” and was served at a lower cost? its really a stretch to call it stealing!
