Oceania Cruises | Insider Update

Oceania Cruises’ Loretta Echols, our stellar representative, was in the office last Thursday and here’s a quick download of what’s new with Oceania.

In case you forgot (or didn’t know me then) I was on their new ship, Marina, about a year ago in New York City.  Haven’t seen the Riviera, the newest, but it’s identical.   I was very impressed and you can read my review here.  Or if you’d like to skip directly to my photos, click here.

Overall

  • Very port intensive if you’re not into days at sea
  • Complimentary shuttles into city centers
  • Free Airfare on every sailing [and a credit if you don’t need air + business class upgrades]
  • Country club casual ambiance [leave your ties at home, gentlemen]
  • Cooking school at sea [Marina & Riviera only] sponsored by Bon Apetit
  • Children’s program on 2013 Alaska sailings

About the Ships

  • Newer 2 ships / higher staff to guest ratio of about 1.5 to 1
  • All ships carry 1,250 or less guests  vs 2,000 or more with other less premium lines
  • Higher staff to guest ratio that other less premium lines
  • No charge for specialty restaurants
  • Complimentary bottled water and soda

Vs All-Inclusive Luxury
[resulting in overall lower prices]

  • Cocktails not included
  • Drink packages available [beer/wine or beer/wine/cocktails. Includes gratuities]
  • Shore excursions not included
  • Seabourn, Silversea, Crystal and Regent have smaller ships, and have a lower staff to guest ratio as well
  • Voyager Club hosts and  complimentary shore excursion amenity not available, with a couple of exceptions
  • Gratuities not included, however we have many sailings where we’ve negotiated them for you!

Booking Incentive
Book by December 31 for included pre-paid gratuiites (huge savings!) and reduced deposits on 2014 winter sailings.

Luxury Cruise Update | January 2012

January, 2012

Dear Reader,

Happy New Year! It’s that time of the year that cruise lines and tour operators get busy with their promotions to fill up their ships and tour groups!  Basically the mantra is buy now and get a deal. Or wait and pay more.  This way they cut down on their future marketing expense and share the benefit with the consumer. That’s you!

Here’s the latest information and promotions from my top travel partners.  Even though your favorite line may not be mentioned, it just means I ran out of time to include them.  Please contact me directly for details.

The best way to stay current on promotions is to join Facebook where I post quite often, or even on Twitter, which is actually very handy for this sort of thing.  My Facebook page is pretty fun though as I try to find relevant videos and articles, keeping the promos to about a third of the posts.

Please let me know if you have any questions!

Here’s to a great year,

Josh
