  1. Too funny. 😄 I'm down to my last bottle of Bvlgari. I bring mine back from Oceania cruises. I don't remember seeing them on the Edge last March. I'm going to do what you did and go to Amazon to buy some.
  2. Did you actually get notice of a Covid resume plan. I have noticed that all Nov and Dec cruises are totally waitlisted except for an odd cabin that I think might be a cancellation that pops back into the inventory. When they have waitlisted every cruise in the last few rounds, it ended up being an indication they would be cancelled. Do you think this time is just to lower number of cabins sold?
  3. Thanks. "Drib" who does his own site and updating as a hobby shows a PH guarantee for $5999pp. I am booked on the Oct 15th and 22nd which have amazing prices so I was hoping these were going to be a bit more like those cruises for pricing. I really hope they go.
  4. Do you have any prices on these specials? The first 5 had great prices but I'm not finding any reduced prices. Example I see $7599pp plus tax for the Nov 21st 11 day cruise. That doesn't seem that special compared to the first cruises. Am I missing something?
  5. I know most offers can't be combined but does anyone have experience with getting the past passenger or Canadian discount included in the single supplement pricing?
  6. I have been in both aft Oceania suite and Deck 12 suites. Deck 12 suite is slightly larger, has a bigger media room , 3pc bath in the entry way and the entry to balcony from bedroom is very nice. Deck 11 aft is slightly smaller, media room is a bit smaller, 2pc in the entry hall and bdrm has no exit to balcony. That said, you mentioned lots of light and the aft Oceania suites are flooded with light during the day and the view from wrap around balcony is wonderful. They are my favorite but Deck 12 is lovely too
  7. 10002 Cabin was quiet and I got used it. Better than the overhang on Deck 11

  9. Hi Katie. Another Captain who blogs is Captain Jonathan Mercer who was and is the Captain on the Amsterdam World cruise that ended in Fremantle Australia. Lovely writer and I wish we had more Captains doing a blog. http://captainjonathan.com/fremantle-and-the-end-of-the-world/ http://captainjonathan.com/3rd-april-indian-ocean-and-onwards/ Appreciate your post.
  10. I have to add the Terrace buffet. This is nothing like HAL Lido or any other main stream cruise line buffet. So much so that I rarely have dinner in the Main dining room. You wouldn't catch me having dinner in HAL buffet or even Celebrity buffet
  11. Thanks. Jacques by a country mile. Red Ginger and Toscana equally and last Polo. Also check out the paid food and wine dinner at La Reserve. A bit like HAL Chefs dinner but much better.
  12. If you liked Maasdam and Ryndam, then I think you would love Riviera or Marina. This link is from several years ago and the pics have Photobucket stamped on them but if you click they do open up. This was a guy who did a food review and rated everything he ate.
  13. Thanks Maris for this wonderful escape. I am also so glad you added link to last years review so I now have another review to while away the time. For those that don't see signatures, here is her link to last years cruise review. https://boards.cruisecritic.com/showthread.php?p=55764694#post55764694
  14. Jim has said he hasn't been posting much on CC lately because of the negativity of so many of the threads. I think you have successfully managed to close this thread with that comment. Let's aim for more hopeful posts. Stay safe everyone. Happy Easter
