QUESTION
What should I pack? 

ANSWER
Prepare for a variety of weather conditions, depending on your travel season and the regions you will be cruising through. Layering clothing items is always your best bet, as this allows you to adjust to any temperature, including artificially maintained temperatures, by removing or adding items throughout the day. 

Comfortable, sporty, smart-casual daywear is appropriate both onshore and onboard. Everyday slacks, khakis, walking shorts, and everyday skirts/dresses are recommended. For warmer temperatures, we suggest lightweight clothing that can be layered, such as a mix of sweaters, lightweight knit shirts, slacks, and walking shorts. For early spring and late fall departures, you’ll find sweatshirts, heavier cotton or wool tops and long-sleeved shirts, and corduroy or heavy khaki pants perfectly suitable. Mix-and-match color schemes work best to help keep baggage light. You will participate in a significant amount of walking over uneven terrain during your time ashore. We recommend comfortable walking shoes with good ankle support. Sturdy sandals are another good option. 

For evenings, any resort-type wear is perfectly suitable; however, we do ask that you not wear shorts to dinner. Men may want to bring one sport jacket for dressier restaurant venues and for special events onboard such as the Captain’s Welcome and Farewell festivities. Women find that a cocktail dress or two always comes in handy no matter the destination. 

Don’t forget to pack a lightweight, waterproof jacket (preferably hooded), or even a heavier-weight windbreaker for colder temperatures.

QUESTION
Is there a gym on the ship? 

ANSWER
There is a fitness center onboard. 

QUESTION
Do I need a passport? 

ANSWER
The U.S. Government requires that all our U.S. citizens be in possession of a valid passport when traveling on any Oceania cruise. 

QUESTION
What do you do when the ship is in port? 

ANSWER
There are shore excursions included and many others to choose from. If you stay onboard you can relax by the pool, read a book or just hang out. 

QUESTION
Will I get seasick? 

ANSWER
Chances are you will not. However, if you tend towards motion sickness, you can purchase something over the counter or see your Doctor before you go.
