Jumping in, hoping not to hijack the thread. We have not signed up for any beverage package but contemplating it. I drink pretty much only wine, DH also enjoys regular drinks. If we get the O life beverage package, only he would upgrade to the premium package. How does the basic beverage package work during cocktail hour?

You would pay for any drinks you ordered during cocktail hour.  You could only order your beer or wine during meals per the plan.

After you gave ordered they take your room card. If not in the premium package they bring you the bill to sign.

If it was me I would listen to those that have been on multiple Oceania cruises over the years. It's kind of like Don't Ask, Don't Tell. 

The daily "Currents" will often have one or more announcements during a cruise reminding folks that "personal spirits" are for cabin consumption only.

ok thanks - just don't want to have 'spirits' confiscated at embarkation - another question - I saw somewhere - likely YouTube - that we are supposed to put alcohol in carry on - but now with the limit 6 per cabin that seems like a lot of bottles to  carry around for the day until we get into our cabin.  I'm planning on only carrying on a backpack with swimsuits and essentials

Get these at wineries (2, 4 or 6 bottles). They collapse for checked baggage and weigh only a few ounces. Use them for storage onboard and toss when you're done.

We fill them at the embarkation port wine shop and bungee them to our small roll-aboard handhelds that have our valuables/meds/etc

What limit..... From experience, they let you bring on any reasonable amount of liquor  for your cabin.  This is not a mass market line...it is an adult line for adults.   Too, add  to it with wines and liquors  from ports that you stop at....

Mostly correct, except for his syrupy opinion on “ an adult line for adults “! Only in his dreams is that the case, but definitely not Oceania policy.
