(10:35 a.m. EDT) -- Beginning mid-October, Oceania is adding new complimentary perks for passengers booked in Concierge-class cabins.
Passengers in these upper-end balcony staterooms will now receive free laundry service (up to three bags) and room service from the Grand Dining Room at lunch and dinner. These freebies are currently only available to suite guests.
Existing perks include priority embarkation, access to the Spa Terrace, a welcome bottle of Champagne, unlimited Internet, a tote bag, shoe shine service, complimentary garment pressing on embarkation day, and access to the Concierge Lounge (on Marina and Riviera only).
"The last thing you want to worry about on vacation is doing chores such as laundry," said Bob Binder, President and CEO of Oceania Cruises, in a statement. "You want your vacation to be relaxing, so we've solved that problem and we've provided an even greater incentive to relax in the comfort of your stateroom -- lunch or dinner from the Grand Dining Room. The laundry is done and lunch and dinner are taken care of, what more could you ask for?"
The new Concierge perks will roll out on the following dates:
- Regatta: October 17, 2017
- Riviera: October 17, 2017
- Insignia: October 20, 2017
- Marina: October 28, 2017
- Sirena: October 30, 2017
- Nautica: November 6, 2017
