Oceania Cruises Information

What is the policy regarding tips/gratuities?

How much you choose to tip is a personal matter and completely at your discretion. For your convenience, a suggested gratuity in recognition of outstanding personal service of $11.50 per Guest, per day, will automatically be added to your shipboard account. Gratuities are combined in a pool due to the fact that the ship offers multiple open-seating venues and you will likely be served by many different staff members during the course of your stay onboard. An 18% gratuity is automatically added to all beverage purchases. Naturally, you may increase or decrease gratuities at your sole discretion.
Guests occupying a Penthouse, Vista or Owners Suite will have an additional $3.50 gratuity per Guest, per day added in recognition of outstanding Butler Service.

What is the smoking policy of Oceania Cruises?

For the comfort and safety of our guests smoking is permitted only in designated areas. These will be a small section of the Horizons Bar and a small section on the Pool Deck. Smoking is not permitted in the staterooms, public room, verandas or in any of the dining areas. Cigar and pipe smoking will not be allowed anywhere indoors.

Do you offer childrens programs / services onboard?
