Hygiene and Safety Protocols
Oceania Cruises is working hand in hand with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and federal governments globally to develop, implement and continually evolve industry-leading standards that will meet or exceed all requirements once those have been finalized by them. This current outline of standards covers all aspects of onboard and shoreside operations to ensure the continuous well-being of guests and crew.
CONTINUOUS SHIP-WIDE DISINFECTION & DAILY FOGGING
Oceania's 24/7 prevention schedule will feature continuous disinfection of public areas and high-traffic touch points as well as daily fogging of all staterooms, suites, public spaces, and guest corridors. The fogging process utilizes a hospital-grade oxidant that is natural, safe, and non-toxic. Guest staterooms and suites will receive intensive microbial disinfection daily, which includes fogging of the entire space inclusive of bathrooms and closets.
ALL NEW HOSPITAL-GRADE AIR FILTRATION SYSTEM
New, upgraded HVAC systems will incorporate the latest advances to be superior to those found in land-based resorts. Each ship will utilize fresh-air induction and be equipped with the highest-tier HEPA 13 hospital-grade filters for all accommodations and public spaces.
NO-TOUCH FOOD SERVICE
No-touch food and beverage service is being implemented across all ships with service staff stationed ship-wide, including Terrace Café, Baristas, Horizons, and the Executive and Concierge Lounges. Of course, all guests will be required to engage in frequent handwashing and hand sanitizer will be prominently placed and easily accessible throughout the ship.
INCREASED SOCIAL DISTANCING
To provide even more space for responsible social distancing, Oceania Cruises has reduced shipboard guest capacity. Reduced seating in entertainment venues, smaller group sizes for shore excursions, culinary classes, and onboard activities, along with increased spacing in dining venues, provide for effective social distancing practices.
THE HIGHEST STANDARDS FOR STAFF & CREW HEALTH
A healthy staff and crew help ensure healthy guests. Constant monitoring of staff and crew health includes testing of crew members, temperature checks multiple times per day as well as rigid sanitation and hygiene protocols.
ENHANCED MEDICAL TEAMS & HEALTH SERVICES
Oceania is expanding their medical teams to provide an industry-leading Medical Staff-to-Guest ratio on board each of their ships. Enhanced onboard medical centers are abundantly stocked with common prescription medications, remedies, and the latest virus-testing equipment. All medical centers will have the ability to perform FDA- and CDC-approved PCR Point of Care testing. Complimentary consultations and treatments are provided for respiratory illnesses and each ship is equipped with dedicated isolation accommodations should the unlikely need arise.
DEDICATED PUBLIC HEALTH OFFICER
Each ship will have a dedicated Public Health Officer on board, responsible for the oversight of all sanitation and outbreak prevention initiatives. Additionally, they will monitor the day-to-day cleanliness of all public areas and accommodations, maintaining compliance with the CDC’s Vessel Sanitation Program. They will work hand in hand with the ship’s medical team on board as well as the corporate Public Health and Medical departments shoreside.
Your Health Ashore
Oceania is partnering with local destinations and tour operators to ensure industry-leading health and sanitation protocols extend to the shoreside experience. Embarkation terminals, tour coaches, and the attractions Oceania visits must meet or exceed the stringent protocols they employ on board to ensure the continued health and safety of the guests and crew.
Life on Board
Questions & Answers
Question: When should I arrive at the port?
Question: How can I communicate with my family and friends at home when I am on the cruise?
The ship was going into dry dock to be refurbished after this cruise. There were issues with the ship that I believe made this necessary. The staff was wonderful. The food was excellent. The one issue was in the room where shows were presented was that the viewing was not tiered. If you weren't on the first row, you didn't see everything. This isn't being corrected in the refurbishment. Personally, I wouldn't book another cruise on this ship.
Wonderful cruise experience!
This was our first real "ocean" cruise; and Oceania was superb. For most travel experiences, we prefer River Cruising or Land Tours; and we are not interested in long, open ocean cruises with many days just at sea, especially with very large passenger counts. This cruise had about 550 passengers and, for the venue (Alaska/BC), the size was about right. Food was good, service was impeccable and the suites were VERY nice. Tours were good, but we were held to FOUR excursions (7 day cruise) due to travel between ports and very limited time (1/2 day only) in each port. IF we decide to cruise in smaller ocean areas (Baltic, Adriatic, etc.) we would definitely consider Oceania as our cruise line.
Oceania is a wonderful cruise line. We had a great time. The staff is friendly, and knowledgeable. The food is exceptional. Loved it.
Absolutely great experience, loved the owner's suite for our family (with nearby suite for our adult children). Stunning scenery/itinerary. Amazing food and wide range of excursions. Liked the size of the ship too; not too big.
Oceania is outstanding and has become our preferred cruise line.
Dollar for dollar there is nothing to compare with Oceania the mass market 2000 to 5000 pax ships all charge an absurd premium, as much as $150 pp/pd for their small ships which are fix seating, extra everything and 800 pax. Its like paying for the pres suite at motel 6..... there is no value in the mass market's small ships..... nothing at all.
I would not book another trip with Oceania (the Operator) only because I've decided that cruising is not for me. I prefer land tours. However, for those wanting a cruise, Oceania met the majority of my expectations. The company needs to provide better excursions but otherwise the trip was fine.
