Default Are you ready for Marina?

Wow - i was just reviewing my Marina material and boy is that ship impressive.

The verandah suites average 285 square feet - about 1/3 larger than industry average.

There are 10 eateries - and very few if any service charges. That includes "Jacques" the restaurant created by heaf chef Jacques Pepin.

There are many suites onboard.

The Spa is all Canyon Ranch from Tucson - one of the best Spas in the world.

This is going to be one extra nice ship.

Thanks for your input - she really looks like she is going to be a great experience. I can't wait to see the decor.

I mean I know the staterooms are going to be big and comfortable and the food will be exquisite. The decor on the smaller ships is a little plain, so I curious to see if they spruce it up a lot for Marina.

I am meeting with some of the top Oceania executives next week. If you (or anyone else) have any specific questions, please let me know and I can get you answers...assuming I don't have the answer already.

I am so excited about going on the Marina's maiden voyage next month. We were upgraded from an oceanview into a B3 Veranda cabin. It's the first time the upgrade fairy has visited us.

Paul, I look forward to seeing you onboard.

You are leaving the ship Feb 8th?
The Panama cruise leaves Feb 8th for 18 days
Do you mean the 4th or 5th for the TA & friends cruise?

I knew it was a three day cruise, with the naming ceremony on the 8th, but i have not been ticketed yet, but I didnt see that the naming ceremony is on the last day of our cruise. I do leave on the 5th.

The Marina has been delivered and is on her Maiden Voyage!

Oceania Cruise's president, Bill Binder, is blogging about the cruise, which seems to be going well...except for the weather and seas. There are some great photos at Taste the Wonderful World of Oceania Cruises

It seems as if Oceania is pulling out all the stops with over-the-top food, service and open bar as well as internet.

Besides having a great new ship, Oceania knows how to market. Let's see how the rest of the Maiden Voyage goes...Hopefully just as well. (The Brass is, apparently, getting off the ship before the transatlantic portion.)

She looks fantastic ...well maybe except for the purple bar area

They have had some rough seas but seems to be handling well
Hope you enjoy the short cruise Paul
