Always love the pictures. Did I read Dutchies right--26 passengers?? I just got a sale email from SD with some of the European 7 days going for $2,999GTY. Quite a price. I bet the escalating air fares are impacting bookings somewhat. Glad we went to the UK last year. Hate paying more for one day in a tin tube than for a week on SD.
We did . . . And our leg is not down to $2999 yet
Did learn however that SD processes All MC and Visa charges through Norway, even if sent by US residents through Miami, so if your credit card bank charges a "foreign exchange fee" you will be liable. why SD does this is a mystery. .. And I was CEO and President of a credit card bank . . .this is not a fee SD keeps and AMex charges a higher interchange rate to SD so it makes no economic sense . . .
Oh well AMEX platinum is looking better and better
As SeaDream is a Norwegian company, why wouldn't they charge through Norway? Seems perfectly logical to a non-American at least. The Miami office is just that, an office, is it not?
It seems that the credit card companies always have a way of coming out on top.....
SD processes the AMEX charges through the US -- so if pay with AMEX in the US, I have no currency exchange fee but if I pay with VISA or MC, I do. That's not clear.
If I hadn't asked - I would have been paying the fee. I"m not blaming SD for the fees - just suggesting that they make their disclosure a bit clearer.
