When the ships arrive in a port of call, guests are requested to wait in the public areas or in their stateroom until an announcement is made with instructions for safe disembarkation. In certain ports, guests will be brought ashore in tender boats. When tendering is required, you will be instructed where and when to board the tenders. Sailing times for each port of call are listed in Oceania Currents and clearly displayed at the gangway. Guests should take note of the scheduled sailing time and return to the ship at least 30 minutes prior to sailing. If the guests return late and miss the ship, they will be solely responsible for rejoining the ship and all associated costs. When going ashore, guests should carry their Oceania WorldCard stateroom key with them at all times. The Oceania WorldCard stateroom key serves as the guest's boarding card and must be swiped for security purposes at the gangway each time you disembark and embark the ship.
