Hmm. I'd love to go to the Galapagos but I'm not sure I'd want to sail with Alex Trebek. I've read accounts from contestants that say he was, well, less than cordial when the cameras were turned off....

I've actually sent a few questions in the the PR folks about Trebek (cruise experience? favorite line? Who's he traveling with?). Will follow up as soon as I hear something.

One of our favorite shows since we have retired, BUT, we don't get it anymore (they replaced it with "The Doctors" - a bad show, frankly).
No way to get the categories. We miss that show.

That should be a fabulous trip. Wish we could enter.

Howdy,

How about looking up the categories up online after the shows?

Cheers,

Dan,
Just wanted to let you know that I was one of the 25 winners. Very excited. Was only confirmed last week. I can do a review for cruise critics if you all are interested.

Congratulations, what a victory. Something tells me you've won a contest or two before. That trip looks unreal -- the Galapagos are definitely high on my list -- and I've heard only good things about Lindblad. We'd definitely love for you to write a member review after the cruise.

One question: Did you hear about the contest on Cruise Critic? If so, maybe you'll agree to take one of the staff?

have you put a review on the CC site?
we are on the Feb 18 sailing of the Endeavor, and we can't wait.....even tho i am a pathetic swimmer and hardly a waterbaby , i trust that won't make a huge difference in the experience...
sure hope i don't forget the rules and reach out to pat a baby seal!

(we have three days post-Galapagos in Quito...guess i better go ck that thread)

any suggestions/advice/stories will be appreciated!
