  1. Call Seabourn Club, explain the situation, ask the question and a note will be put in your profile. Then just a few days before the next cruise begins (this is to avoid conflict with new passengers boarding and the Front Desk being extremely busy), go to the Front Desk or Club Hostess who will call up your profile and make the benefit change to take effect with the start of the next cruise.
  2. We purchased our visa for India via internet with no problem using photos that we had taken at a CVS. Enjoy your cruise.
  3. I have yet to find on any Regent, Silversea, Seabourn or Viking Ocean cruise any crew member who doesn't deserve a tip bar none! Victory II for that matter.
  4. Good post. I agree with you about the Alaska cruises.
  5. Not many Regent regulars sail at this time of year especially to the Caribbean!
  6. Because I had to dress up for so very man years, I prefer to be neat, tidy and comfortable while following the rules. 🙂
  7. There were quite a few people who had canes or walkers. There was a morning tour, an afternoon tour and in some cases, a shuttle. On board, I'd talk to the Shore Excursion person. In our case, her name was Carol Ann Ellis who was very caring and helpful. Enjoy!
  8. I don't know how I could have possibly not say something about the internet! Internet on Victory II was either abysmal or non existent. There were enough complaints so hopefully that problem has been fixed, but be prepared. Passenger complement was 50 and above with a lot of fun loving, active retirees.
  9. Arrived back 9/4/2019 from a Victory II cruise from Detroit to Montreal. On a positive note the mostly Philippine restaurant and bar staff was as good as the service that we've received on Regent, Seabourn and Silversea. The food was nicely presented, different choices each day, and of good quality thanks to Chef Michael. Chicken was a standard choice, vegan and gluten free items were available. The entertainment each night was with the same three performers - Austin Ray, cruise director on keyboard and vocals, Jonathan Benton on drums and Jackson Price on guitar and vocals. Each performer was very good and quite personable. Each night had a different musical theme - Country, Rock & Roll, etc. During cocktail hour from 6 - 7 one of the performers would provide background music. The canapes served during cocktail hour were varied and quite tasty. Our cabin was 212 a Category C. The bed was comfortable. There was a TV mounted on the wall. We were happy with the TV offerings. The cabin had a desk, mirror and one chair that was a negative as for two people you really need two chairs. We travel light and for us there was more than enough storage space. If you are a large person, you might have a problem with the curtained shower. There is a step up into the curved, raised shower that for the most part kept water off of the floor. Shampoo, Conditioner, Body Wash, and Body Lotion was quite nice. Shore excursions though short were either very good or meh! In Cleveland, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is not to be missed and we could have spent more time there. The ship is small, a bit tired, but nicely maintained. For the right itinerary, we would go with Victory Cruise lines again.
  10. We'd really like to consider Seabourn for December 2020, but the limited itineraries that were released 8/17 were the same old, same old and most would be repeats for us.
  11. Some December 2020 itineraries are available today August 17, 2019.
  12. Today, 8/17, 2019, there are some itineraries available for December 2020. For me, it's the same old, same old tired ones and would be repeat itineraries.
  13. This is for January 2021. We've been to Antarctica twice and Patagonia three times. What STILL hasn't been posted for any Seabourn ship are itineraries for December 2020.
  14. Thank you! The Website is still not showing December 2020.
  15. I too took SS at 62 and here I am almost 17 years later! :-) Enjoy every minute of your retirement!
