Oceania Mediterranean Cruise

   Just returned from an Oceania Mediterranean Cruise.  What a great vacation.  The selection of ports was fantastic.  We only had to tender into one port.  The schedule was such that we arrived early and sailed late.  This gave us time to tour, sightsee on our own and shop without feeling rushed.  In Monte Carlo, many people went back at night to see the town lit up like a Christmas tree.  The food was amazing and Oceania offers a wide selection including vegetarian and Canyon Ranch spa cuisine selections.  We also dined at the 2 specialty restaurants without paying any surcharge.  In fact there were no surcharges for a lot of extras such as cappuccinos, lattes, sodas or bottled waters to take on our sightseeing excursions.  We also avoided the overcrowded port syndrome.  Because Oceania ships carry fewer passengers than the large cruise lines, and because we arrived early in the day, before other cruise ships, there were not as many cruise passengers touring each port as sometimes happens.  And did I mention its all country club casual.  No need for fancy clothes or dinner jackets.
 
   We have some great specials with Oceania for 2012 including a 10 day cruise on the brand new Riviera in August with free airfare, free pre-hotel stay, free gratuities and shipboard credit.  Call me at 800-622-3533 or email francine@travelharmony.com for more information or to receive a brochure or DVD.
