Special Moments Travel Clients Return from Oceania Cruise

Our very special clients in the DFW area, Jane and Bill, just returned from an Oceania Cruise.  Their itinerary started in Venice, Italy with a water taxi awaiting their arrival, ending in Istanbul, Turkey.

 Jane’s most outstanding comments were, “…the pictures don’t do it justice!  Gorgeous ship meticulously cared for in every way, wonderful staff, great and I do mean GREAT food (we ate in all the venues except those for private parties), wonderful ports, good programs on board (some free, some with charges), good entertainment, etc.  There was a professor who gave regular talks (always recorded and shown on t.v. for those who didn’t attend) on the ports.  Bill really enjoyed him.   Our cabin was lovely with the only negative being that one suitcase wouldn’t fit under the bed, and there was nowhere else to put it.  The bathroom was a dream (marble and granite…shower, tub, great toiletries, sea salts, good towels, spotless, etc.).  The tub filled so quickly and quietly…it even drained quietly… Our cabin wasn’t too far from the elevator, but due to the layout, we never heard it!  We loved the upgrade to concierge level, and the concierge was often in the lounge and was very responsive (she helped me with one matter and had great follow-up).  The in-cabin laptop was much appreciated, and internet speed was unusually good (especially in port).  Very smooth seas and absolutely no motion sickness.

“Just today Bill said he’d like to do another Oceania cruise (with, hopefully, one sea day thrown in)!  I think that says it all, don’t you?…

“I have to add that participating in the roll call for this cruise on cruisecritic.com was a very wise thing!  We shared tips, organized excursions together, etc.  Going into the cruise, we had our Ephesus excursion booked as well as two cabs lined up with another couple and a plan to use the public bus in Koper and Fira (Santorini).  The day we sailed, we had a “meet and greet” (60+ people) to put some faces to the names.  I made some new friends with whom I hope to stay in touch, and it’s all thanks to this roll call!  We were going outside our comfort zone with this cruise, but planning ahead really took away some of the anxiety.”

Thanks, Jane and Bill!  And welcome home!!!
