Default Embarkation on Oceania Cruises

Have read on Oceania web site that embarkation is at 3pm. Does anyone know if that is "written in stone"? Seems ridiculous if it is true. Most other lines are more flexible with "guests" coming from all over the world and arriving at different times. If it is true, do they have facilities for food and drink for guests arriving in the am, and having to wait to board?
Would appreciate any experience or advice you can pass along.

I am sorry for your unhappiness. We live in a funny world because I am pleased with the later embarkation. Our cruise doesn't sail until 6:00 PM so a 3:00 PM boarding should be more than adequate to process 650+ people and get them all settled before embarkation. As a result I still get part of a day for my own use.

We are doing a Europe cruise so we arriving two days early and plan to use the morning of embarkation day for last minute sightseeing and other odds and ends.

I think coming into any port a day before sailing makes good sense in most all cases. Too many things can happen to disrupt travel that having a buffer day in a good idea.

I hope things workout for you and you have a great time.

They are allowing passengers on the Regatta at 11:00a.m. You can wander around the ship and have a buffet lunch. You can get into your cabin at 3:00p.m.

Thanks for the information. I did not realize I was so unhappy as "Sports Fan" suggested. I thought I was just stating my experiences vis a vie Oceania.

I read on another message board that you can get on board after 11, but that your cabin won't be ready til 3
