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?
Time in port wasd often too short, and some of the port selections were ok at best. To be fair, the weather was pretty bad which was a downer as well.
Robert was terrific!
Jody provided excellant service and followup. Looking forward to continued relationship with Affordabletours.
The trip was with Oceania Cruise Line. This was our 4th trip with this cruise line, so we are very familiar with the services offered, etc. However, it appears one thing has changed which we did not care for. Specifically, the tours on our previous 3 cruises were much better -- we were taken to the places described in the description and we actually got a tour of that particular place inside and out This time, despite picking tours/excursions of the same caliber per the description in the catalog, we were taken to the location, shown the outside and given a brief explanation and were then given "free time" (20-40 minutes only) to use the toilets and shop for cheap souvenirs. This was VERY disappointing, especially since some of these locations really had a lot to see/offer on the inside. Of particular disappointment was the fact that we did NOT get to go inside La Sacrada Familia Church in Barcelona. Moreover, even if we had wanted to go inside, we only had about 40 minutes of free time before leaving that spot, so we could not have waited in line and toured the inside of the church. This "format" of the tours was consistent throughout the cruise, and was not something we enjoyed, nor did we feel we got our money's worth since the tours run $150-$250 per person.
Oceania's air department leaves a lot to be desired. I understand they try to book flights at the lowest cost to them using prevailing industry standards. However, the routing can be quite an experience in itself. If one needs a better routing after the computer spits out the "world flight" itineary, then the passenger is left calling Oceania to pay a $175 change fee + any applicable cost increases the flight changes may require. In our case they had us flying west to east on the outbound leg. I was able to convince Oceania to make a more acceptable air change without any costs to me. We loved having a three night stay in port at St. Petersburg, Russia. Even so, we couldn't possibly do all the touring required to cover that city! Gotta go back someday! This was our sixth Oceania cruise. Their consistency in service, safety, food, excursion management and selection, like minded passenger load, ports of call, small ship size are all first class and second to none at their price point.
Can't go wrong with Oceania.
Everything was Ok, but internet service on Nautica was a little bit slow. Signal was poor and even WIFI calling was not available because of poor signal
I have booked many tours and cruises through Affordabletours.com and have not experienced any problems. The staff I dealt with were courteous and on the ball eventhough I am located on the other side of the planet. The prices quoted were very reasonable, often with additional perks attached. I have always recommended my friends to use their services.
Trip was well-run but suited to over 70s. Not ideal if you are much younger as the on board ship activities are designed for older people.
Wonderful cruise. The itinerary was well thought out, with charming towns along the Baltic. The ship\'s staff were exceptional. Our butler and maid could not have been more friendly, efficient, and helpful. The ship was beautiful, especially the public spaces which reflected a high end, old world style. Food was quite good, with lots of choices at all meals.
This was our first experience with Oceania as well as with cruising on a "small ship". We would definitely cruise with Oceania again. Our cabin was perfect. The ship's staff was very friendly and eager to please. Our cabin steward was the best. The ship itself was absolutely beautiful throughout. If we had to mention a shortcoming it would be the food in the specialty restaurants. We dined in each one and found the quality of the food inconsistent with the price and quality of the cruise as a whole. We ate most of our meals in the buffet and found the variety and quality of the food much better. One final note: This cruise has cured us of ever wanting to cruise on "big ship" again.
