We had cruised from san diego on a 19 day cruise to hawaii and tahiti. we stopped in honolulu for a day and left at 12 midnight. . approx. 2 to 3 in the morning ; i found the room to be very stuffy.. Soon afterward the captain got on the pa to inform us they had lost all power on the ship and ship was dead in the water.. worse than that the aux. Power would not go on ... Therefore the captain (rightfully so) instructed all passangers to go to open pool area because there would be daylight shortly and it would be dangerous for anybody to walk about in the dark.. worse part of this 'incident' is the good will gesture oceania had offerred all passangers .. A future cruise credit of $500 towards a future cruise. are you kidding!!! also, they changed the itenerary.but not informed of the change till after the ship was cleared to leave honlulu (ps we had to be towed into honolulu ...even though the power eventually came back on).. moreover, the captain instructed evrybody to be back on the ship bt 2:30pm (believe it was november 8th) with further info re departure. .. Never recieved info re departure till after 8pm when the ship was about to leave and most of the passangers were at dinner. We were informed the change of itenerary would be in print in the stateroom.. Upon review of the new intenerary, we were informed of loss of 3 ports and added 5 more sea days. this is not what i signed up for... If given my drutherers and given the opportunity i would have left the cruise in honolulu..... By the way ncl executives had flown in from miami were on the ship when the change of intnerary occurred ncl and oceania messed up terribly miss handeled this situation and owes each passanger more than the $500.00 future cruisecredit... This is an insult we have choices for future cruises..for me it will not be the regatta or oceania.

AWFUL VOYAGE
