    By the way everyone, what are the chances of the Ovation opening up the onboard marina at our 2 tender locations?

    We were informed they cancelled the direct flights as of nov 1. I just did a quick check for this month and their website says no direct flights (only via London). Where are you seeing it? Also be careful they are not using Wamos as an alternative, it rates lower than Moldavia Air.

    Yes make sure you double check I think they cancelled that route altogether. We had to change to TAP which was good but stopped in Lisbon and we had to go economy

    We recently had “premium “ seats booked on Norwegian Air from Miami to Barcelona for only 300eur but didn’t get to try it as they cancelled the route just days out from flying. They wanted to change us to an airline called Wamos (a quick google ended that idea). Norwegian has been cancelling a lot of flights recently

    Just to give credit where it is due that was Julies advice to us. We found on both our Regent cruise and our Viking cruise that a discreet word to management usually saw prompt improvement unlike the major lines where the ships are so big that change is more difficult to implement. One more day to go until caviar and sushi!

    Sounds like my style of waiting

    Thanks for the updates guys. Really looking forward to it. Only similar experiences have been one Regent cruise and one Viking. Certainly will not miss all those up selling attempts.

    Thanks, I don’t like being on equipment inside the gym when at sea and love walking outside but it does appear to be a problem on this ship (6.30 might be a tad early). On our recent Viking cruise they had a full promenade very close to the sea and an upstairs walking track with exercise equipment. No worries we will adjust.

    Thanks SLSD, appreciate all your help as usual. Do you have any opinions on my other questions about activities and walking areas? cheers

    Hi, yes we are the same in that we only take the stairs which also helps prevent contact with germs. I have put on 20 pounds but that is over 60 days of being on cruise ships which I think isn’t too bad 😳🤥🥳 I think most of it is from drinks 🍻

    Hi again all, we are only days away from stepping aboard our first Seabourn cruise. We have just completed 4 cruises (ncl transatlantic via Iceland; our first Viking Ocean cruise; another ncl transatlantic and our first ever MSC cruise) so I have unfortunately put on all the weight I lost in preparation for this “gruelling” schedule haha. Oh well. We flew from Miami to Dubai yesterday so trying to adjust with the jet lag. I am reacquainting myself with Seabourn and the Ovation. I find the website strange, I log in and it shows my booking with itinerary and ability to book shore excursions etc but to find my cabin assignment I have to enter guest registration on a separate web page but if I proceed past that first page I cannot see my cabin details again and strangely when I try to reprint my documents it still does show this cabin assignment although it does in the epass. As we have not returned home since booking this cruise I am not sure what Seabourn has sent us but I presume these edocs will suffice for boarding? Online it states check in is from 2pm, is this normal? It sounds a little late and we were hoping to have lunch after boarding? We have 2 tender ports (Sir Yani Bas island and Sabang in Indonesia) what is the likelihood we can use the onboard marina equipment? Normally on cruise ships we don’t spend a lot of time by the pool, we like walking the promenade and open decks, playing games and activities. It appears there is no walking track, is this correct? Are there any activities such as table tennis or shuffleboard etc? It scares me to think how much weight I could put on without these distractions 🤣 Does anyone have copies of the cocktail lists/drinks menus so I can get even more excited? any other last minute tips? thanks everyone

    What was your upgrade offer and what did you bid

    Just got rejection, bid 125 for inside to balcony and 150 to mini suite, both on the edge of poor/fair.

    What was your upgrade offer and what did you bid

    Sailing on the Epic on Sunday. Had 2 bids in, have not received any emails about my bids and when I log into myncl there are no upgrade banners anymore. Cruise looks fully booked but seems strange not to have heard anything either way?

    Specially dining on platinum benefit

    Haha, not sure DW would be too impressed. It seems strange though that my DW and I have spent the same amount of money to attain platinum status yet if I took a stranger on a cruise with me who had never spent a $ with ncl they could get a free meal but ncl will not extend the same courtesy to my wife and I when travelling, unfair glitch to me.
