  1. I've seen posts about the Prestige and House Select Beverage Packages but, couldn't find my questions answered about the Wine by the Bottle Package. I do understand that each bottle is $47.50 from a select listing and you must purchase 7 bottles and is available only onboard (https://www.oceaniacruises.com/value/#amenities-packages). My questions are: Are the bottles restricted to consuming while eating lunch and/or dinner e.g., not available at Martinis, Horizons or in our suite? Do we request a bottle at either lunch or dinner from the sommelier who in turns writes our suite # on the bottle to return to the cellar as we usually don't finish a bottle at one sitting? Thanks!
  2. We getting luggage organized for our cruise next month on the Marina and cannot recall if Oceania provides a corkscrew in the cabin? We like to have a glass of vino on our veranda and sometimes the wine we purchase are not the screw cap style? Thank you.
  3. Not really nonsensical for us travellers as when we were reserving car transport to Southampton we were informed that normal pick-up at many impacted hotels in central London would not be possible on embarkation day so if one assumes there is 'no problem' best to do some research or miss the ship.
  4. I posted this message as I believe it to be helpful for any cruisers who need to make their way to Southampton port from central London - there are many of us. As well, if visiting London pre-cruise, good to know in advance that RideLondon will impact some common tourist areas e.g. Pall Mall , Trafalgar Sq etc. (https://www.prudentialridelondon.co.uk/info-hub/road-closures/)
  5. Our travel agent just forwarded this notice and I had posted on our roll call about RideLondon but thought it may be helpful to others.
  6. A follow-up question, is it advisable to book tickets online? Is there a priority line for pre-purchased tickets? Expect with so many boats, one waits for the next one if full? Thanks!
  7. Thank you everyone for replying - very helpful.
  8. Trying to decide which company to take to cruise from London (Westminister Pier) to Greenwich Pier: City Cruises or Thames River Cruises. Leaning towards Thames River Cruises as it appears to make fewer stops and understand more of an old-fashioned feel. Recommendations please.
  9. We were in PH3 8065 and the privacy panel did obstruct our view somewhat but didn't bother us at all especially because we gained more privacy! The other comment is that it is directly below Terrace Cafe and we often heard moving of chairs but no big deal as loved the PH. Enjoy!
  10. We've been on many cruises with Oceania and always look forward to sail away and am curious to learn favourite ship locations on either R or O class of ships from my fellow cruisers? We sometimes walk about the fitness track to watch the shore disappear into the distance or other times head to Horizons depending upon the weather and time of day.
  11. We are now considering not taking the HOHO as we only have 2 hours (after our morning excursion) to see Britannia and the Palace of Holyroodhouse before they close at 4:30 PM. Understand driving distance is approx. 10 mins. between both destinations and expect HOHO will take longer (only leave every 15 mins.). Are taxis readily available at Britannia and the Palace? If yes, any idea what the fare would be? Thanks again.

  13. I've use Gravol (Canadian equivalent to Dramamine I believe) as well as ginger tablets and lozenges to much success. However, last year I tried the Relief Band with excellent results for rough seas, switchback roads etc. Link: https://www.reliefband.com.
  14. Thank you very much for this info. We have an excursion to St. Andrews in the am and then in pm, planned to tour Royal Yacht Britannia. Great news as it appears, we will be able to pick-up the HOHO Majestic Tour outside the Britannia - very convenient!
