  1. What a beautiful ship. We will be on her fall 2022. Long time to wait. I am excited for all of you traveling on her this summer. I cannot wait to see everyone’s comments from their trips. Bon voyage!
  2. Thanks so much. It has been a rewarding career but I am glad I do not have to deal with the school situation right now. The online learning was tough for the students and the teachers this spring. We did our best. Congratulations on your retirement. I hope we both can have a celebration of retirement cruise soon. 2020 has been a tough one!!
  3. Isn't it the truth about business class? Once we started we cannot stop lol. I suppose the upgrade availability will last until early next year. I do not want to pay until it is a fairly sure the cruise will be a go. I just retired from teaching and so now we can finally travel in off times like October. Well let us hope we can all travel soon. 🙂
  4. Yes, $1000 deposit does make the idea more appealing. I will think about it because that cruise does look like one we would like. I would also like the business upgrade but I have a feeling that would be available for awhile so we could wait a bit to pay for that. I think the 2022 are up to June on the website. I am waiting to see the September October sailings. We think fall would be a nice time to go to Europe. I suppose they will release them in not too long. We all are left to take our best guess at what is going to happen.
  5. That cruise sounds really great. It is very much like the one we were going to do this September on the Spirit except that one went from Lisbon to Barcelona. I really like that Oct 2021 cruise but still debating whether to wait until 2022 to cruise. Just not sure since so much is in the air. I wish we all knew where things were heading. I am not sure when September and October cruise itineraries for 2022 are released for I would like to see if there are any similar cruises then. I really want to plan a cruise but it is so difficult now.
  6. I hope so too! I see you retired! That is great!! I have until June 5. 37 years teaching high school math. I am ready for a nice cruise, lol.
  7. Thanks for the link. We are traveling Lisbon to Barcelona on the Spirit in September. Our first Silversea cruise to celebrate my retirement. We have time to wait and see what happens in the next few months. I am hopeful we will be able to still take our trip. I hope people's cruises here will not be impacted.
  8. We are traveling on my first Silversea to Europe in September this year. We upgraded to Business class for our flights. I was originally told we could get out flights around 270 days out. It is now around 230 days but I cannot seem to get any response from my Silversea consultant. I want to make sure to get good flights but I do not want to be a big bother if waiting is no big deal. For most of you who get flights, how close to the cruise date do you usually book them? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.
