If you’ve been following our countdown to Marina’s Maiden Voyage, you’ve noticed that I’m exceptionally excited about the new restaurants onboard, as well as the Bon Appétit Culinary Center. I also mentioned that I’m an avid jogger, but a few have (good-naturedly) expressed doubts about my veracity. So I’d like to confirm that I do indeed appreciate all of the pleasures of Oceania Cruises even beyond the cuisine. Above I’ve shared a photo that I took during the Reunion Cruise of September 2010. I jogged four miles along the coast of St. Malo during sunrise, and the view was simply spectacular.
Which leads me to my latest sneak peek as we find ourselves only 5 days from Marina’s Maiden Voyage. No, it is not a photo of the Fitness Track, although I will mention that 13 laps around the track is a mile, and it is a pleasant jog or walk whether we are in port or at sea. However, today I actually give you the insider’s track on that which follows a glorious day of fine cuisine, exciting excursions, and healthy, balanced living – an evening of repose in your suite or stateroom. Below is a photo of me and some craftsmen helping with some of the final touches in one of the Owner’s Suites.
Every suite and stateroom features our Prestige Tranquility Bed and 1000-count Egyptian cotton linens to ensure that all guests enjoy a restful, restorative sleep after their adventures onboard and ashore. In Marina‘s Owner’s, Vista, and Oceania suites, we will also offer the ultimate indulgence — a Pillow Menu. From this menu you can select the perfect pillow to provide all of the comfort and therapeutic benefits you desire. Below is a sneak peek at some of the featured pillows.
I would love to try one for myself tonight, but after all the work we did today, I think I’m going to be asleep before my head even hits the pillow!
