  1. Has anyone done this excursion from the port of Flam, Norway? Oceania is offering it, but without a lot of explanation. I would appreciate any thoughts about this tour. Thanks!!
  2. Thank you, everyone, for your responses. No one really answered my question though. I really don't feel like I have to explain myself, but I will anyway. We consider excursions to be part of the total cruise price. I like to keep my OBC's because it feels like "free" money. That way, I can go to the salon and spa, play bingo, etc., and not feel like I am wasting "real" money. Simple as that! Excursions=real money. Bingo=free money.
  3. When I booked excursions online for our last cruise, they were automatically (or at least I think they were) deducted from our OBCs. I like to save our credits for onboard. Did I miss something? How do I book excursions online and pay for them with a credit cards now that we can use OBCs? Thank you for helping this techno dummy!
  4. Does AMACello have a 24 hour coffee/tea station for guests to use?
  5. Thanks everyone for the great ideas and advice. I really appreciate all of your help!!
  6. I hope that I am in the right place. We will be in Vienna for three days before our Christmas Market cruise begins. Any suggestions on what to do those days? Thank you!
  7. Does the Island Princess have a walking track or a space that can be used to walk outside?
  8. Thank you, everyone, for your comments.
  9. Does Princess have the above activity on sea days? Another line we sail on does, and they provide cute little kits. I was looking on Ebay and noticed a kit with "Princess Cruises" in the pattern.
  10. It has never been a problem with us. All you have to do is let them know that you are leaving early.
  11. Probably. They have a new technique--one person holds the two lounges while the other goes to eat, then they switch.
  12. I wouldn't put it past some of those people. Someone, at the beginning of the ATW, took a bunch of needlepoint kits and was selling them on her Ebay site. She must have told someone and they notified Oceania. People were so crazed about grabbing as many kits as they could, the Social Hostess had to start having people sign up and come up to the bar in Horizons a few at a time to choose a kit. Ray Carr even mentioned, in his daily announcements, that the ladies needed to behave themselves at needlepoint. I went one day and was number four in line, but when I signed my name, I was number 15. The women in front of me were signing up for their "friends playing bridge" at the same time as needlepoint. Then, all of a sudden, lots of husbands took an interest in needlepoint and showed up to get "their" kits. I have been on over ten O cruises, and have never seen such silly behavior!!
  13. Leslie has always been our favorite. We saw his rendition of "If I Was a Rich Man" over ten years ago. He did it on a segment of the ATW in April. So much fun to see him do it again. Trivia can be scary. I have seen a few sessions turn into screaming matches. The worst thing I witnessed was on the above mentioned cruise. A man would come to the time period when the daily Mensa answers where being given out. He would always have four copies of the questions, without answers. He would quickly fill in the answers as Leslie read them off. He would then go up to get his O points for him and his "friends".
