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.

Questions & Answers

Question: When should I arrive at the port?

We suggest that you arrive at least 2 hours before the scheduled departure time.

Question: How can I communicate with my family and friends at home when I am on the cruise?

Telephone service can be quite expensive and the service may be spotty. However, Wi-Fi services are also becoming the standard though access may come with a fee. You can view rates once you register for the cruise. Some stateroom categories and loyalty program benefit levels will offer a generous amount of "Wi-Fi Time", access to the ship's internet cafe or both.

Susan was accessible, courteous and always helpful. I intend to call her soon for future bookings.

Oceania is a deluxe cruise line. We loved our cabin and the amenities were all superior. Staff were outstanding and food was all delicious. It was a great vacation!

We love Oceania Cruise Line. Once you've experienced the top notch service and the food, it's very hard to consider anything else. On this trans-Atlantic crossing, the captain had to skip the 2 stops in the Canary Islands because of a monster storm producing super high waves and he wasn't able to substitute any other places for those ports. Consequently we had several more sea days than originally expected; however, this can happen on any cruise.

Oceania Riviera is very good, almost flawless, highly recommended

Cannot begin to express our gratitude and wouldn't hesitate to not only refer you but also travel again with Affordable and Oceania. Thank you very much for the onboard credit.

Our cruise with Oceania on the Riviera was amazing and everything we were promised. We were celebrating our 25th Wedding anniversary and it was perfect for us. The ship, cabin, dining and service were 5 star. We loved our cabin - a good size, with plenty of storage and a wonderful bathroom. I recommend spending the money for concierge level. We enjoyed the Canyon Ranch Spa and workout areas. The show entertainment in the theatre was just okay, but the piano bar and string quartet were very enjoyable. We only went on one Oceania excursion and it was good, but the excursions are expensive and ours was rushed...hard to get through everything in a day. With that said, we did many excursions with local companies and on our own and that worked for us. We really enjoyed the cooking class we took on the ship and dinner and La Reserve was a great experience. All of the dinner dining options were top notch...breakfast was just okay - we liked it best in the grand dining room. Internet access was not great, but it worked well enough to get us by. We are looking forward to our next cruise with Oceania.

Best price I could find for this specific cruise!

We had booked a cruise with a travel agent at AffordableTours.com and had such a good experience we decided to book another tour through the company. Unfortunately, our regular agent was not available (on leave) and we got transferred to another agent. This agent was nothing short of AMAZING. She called us back right away (time was an issue because we wanted to take advantage of a promotion that was ending soon). She booked our trip, got us a GREAT room, an amazing upgrade to our room, and even gave us a substantial amount of shipboard credit! Any time there was action requested and/or a change to our cruise itinerary, she notified us right away. She also made sure to follow-up with me personally for each and every question I had. I would definitely recommend AffordableTours.com to anyone interested when booking their next vacation!

Oceania was a wonderful cruise line...Staff and food were awesome! We would definitely book with them again. Loved the smaller ship size ..very relaxing ship with lots of attentive staff. Awesome line!!

The cruise agent was terrific, he is able to access all available sbc and other special packages for us and even when specials are offered by the cruise line subsequent to boarding he is willing and able to contact the liaison and access them for us. He is appreciated.

the experience was better than expected

We loved the Oceania Rivera. The whole experience was wonderful.

I have already recommended others to Affordable and they have used your services. We are very pleased with them
