$599 plus port tax* for seven nights in Europe, oceanview. That's the lowest I've seen. What is the best price you have seen for the 2-for-1 including free air? Is it available in the highest categories, those with a balcony? That might indeed be better.
Note that the advertised prices are per person, and have already factored in the 2-for-1 discount.
Even so, I received an e-mail from Oceania offering the Insignia's 10-day inaugural cruise starting at $1399 per person for an inside cabin, so after deducting the $800 value of the free airfare, you'll get 10 days for only $599! But you gota book soon!
I don't think you can deduct the amount of $800 for airfare from the cruise ( although that would be a hell of a deal).. I asked about what the air credit was on a May cruise and was told $250. so you might want to check again..
According to my early, the value of the open-jaw airfare was around $800-900. I checked with Colleen at Oceania and she said that Oceania would credit us $600 per person if we booked our own airfare, which is a lot better than the $250 Claudia was offered. Therefore, anyone with over 40,000 in a frequent flyer account stands to get a pretty significant cruise credit - bathrobes all around!!!
We rushed to book the April 04 Insignia Inaugural cruise because we were told by an Oceania rep that the free airfare deal ended on Sept. 30. We received a recent e-mail from Oceania, however, advising us that the offer has been extended for cruises booked through October 31st.
The October 25th trip has been sold out for months and I believe the wait list is closed, but you may want to call your TA to check....Anyone that wants Oceania should book asap as having only one ship they tend to sell out very early....
Sharon, Oceania does not go for 7 days to Europe so I am not sure what cruise line you were checking out..but I dont believe it was Oceania..
Richard, I do believe Colleen was incorrect on the air credit ..did you get what she said in writing?? Please email me for clarification..There are still a few dates available for free air and also 2 for 1 air..so call your TA as soon as possible if you are interested..
You're right, Paul. It doesn't get much better than that! Oceania's current promotion earned it a 2nd place "Best Bargain of the Week" in Sunday's Travel section of the Washington Post! Glad we reserved our cabins when we did!
