  1. It’s easy to see some people have the attitude I have, but many don’t. If it’s stressful it’s not fun. I don’t feel like trying to figure out who’s too serious and who’s not and since DH won’t join me, I think I'll skip it. I go on a cruise to relax and have fun and this just doesn’t sound that way to me. Maybe I’ll stick to scarf typing😂....no stress or pressure there!!😊
  2. I’m so glad I saw this thread because I had planned to join Trivia on our cruise in a couple days on Riviera. This is our 8th Oceania cruise since 2013 and I’ve never played because I knew my husband wouldn’t. So I thought I’d give it a try in my own. But reading these posts has ended that desire! i play Trivia here in our community and we try to win, but mostly we have fun. I actually thought that was what cruising was, but I would never dare go to afternoon Trivia having seen how unwelcome I could easily be.
  3. Many thanks. We loved the Millennium years ago ... many! Enjoy the sea wherever you go and whatever ship you're on!
  4. Thank you for your review. We board Riviera a week from today and had friends on your cruise. They talked about the high winds and the disappointment in missing Harvest Caye. I love reading the perspective of a new Oceania cruiser and especially one who has been on Celebrity so much. We started cruising Oceania in 2013 and never went back to Celebrity. I'd be interested in your favorite Celebrity ship right now because we have considered trying it again one of these days. Thank you for your review! We can't wait to board and head up to Waves Grill for my favorite Surf 'n' Turf sandwich.
  5. Hi Donna! I agree! Me, I’m happy on an Oceania ship anywhere it wants to take me! Stuff happens. We are just lucky we can set sail at all:)! We’re not cruising this year, but have 2 next year ... both on Riviera.
  6. I only read about 20 replies and felt I had to say something. I am not a "professional" poster no have I been on the Oceania forum for quite some time. Generally I post on Roll Calls now and that's that. Social media in general has become pretty ugly. That said, I clicked on this review because I was worried. We started cruising on Oceania in early 2013 and our 8th is coming up. After cruising since 1982, we landed here and stayed because it is everything we want. Perfect? No. But pretty darned close. If I see a poor review I worry because since Norwegian took over I've been concerned Oceania might go downhill. Our last cruise was this past December and it was still a stellar experience. I read the review and as I read turning over in my mind were the words "Are you kidding me??? These are your issues??". I'd understand if this were a first cruise. Many people don't understand cruising. But you cannot just suddenly "dock" somewhere when you're not scheduled. Lots of ships on the sea. We had a medical emergency once and took the patient to Turks & Caicos. Moored out at sea for awhile I sure wished I could be lying in the sun on that beach, but I also knew you can't just dock wherever you like. It's not a motor cruiser out for a spin. I could go on about my shock reading this, but I don't want to tear it apart. But if this is enough to turn someone off Oceania, then cruise another line and see how that goes. Before Oceania, Celebrity was our line of choice and before that HAL and on and on. Anyone who thinks Celebrity is better because they always have escargot or shrimp or whatever should probably return to Celebrity. Because hands down the Oceania cuisine so far surpasses Celebrity.
