  1. Absolutely stunning ship -- good luck Silversea 🤞
  2. S orry -- I did not intend any negative by the word snagging.....I know how you received the Dom from AMEX .....we have enjoyed it too.
  3. Congratulations and I know you're looking forward to cruising again soon and snagging another bottle of Dom. Dusababy aka Mary Ann
  4. This "flower" is at Huntington Gardens in Pasadena, CA. Makes the paper every year when it blooms - big crowds to see and/or smell it.
  5. Does anyone have CSA Generali Global Assistance travel insurance? Have you submitted a claim for reimbursement of cancellation, and if so, how lond did it take? Thanks for your response. Dusababy
  6. Re cancellation: does anyone have CSA Generali Global Assistance trip cancellation insurance, and if so, how long have you waited for reimbursement?
  7. You know, I've always said (and have 20 years experience on SS) -- if nothing happens, what do you have to talk about when you get home? Ye Gods! I couldn't have imagined anything like this! I am so sympathetic to all those who have had these experiences which have impacted the lives of you and your loved ones....but this too shall end, and we will look forward to future cruises with our beloved Silversea.
  8. Glad to see your sense of humor is intact nowornever. I'm home in cold, wet California and following along your every move (ooooops, you're not moving very far at the moment.) Regards Dusa aka Mary Ann
  9. We experienced that a couple of years ago. We were on the first segment - San Francisco to Auckland - 19 days and the cliques were there from the beginning. We enjoyed the journey, but it wasn't quite as expected based on past SS experience.
  10. Agree with Cruising Pash -- ALWAYS give to the butler and room steward, most of whom give such personal service. And ALWAYS contribute to the Crew Fund. And ALWAYS mention those who perform above and beyond. It's just the right thing to do.......
  11. Lois I've done several crossings and loved all of them. Yes, the ride can sometimes be bumpy to say the least, but no worries. As far as activities -- guest lecturers - enrichment lecturers - morning and afternoon (in my experience) A great variety of experts on varied topics - world politics - my favorite THE ALMIGHTY COD (overview of the large role played by dried cod and the evolution of humanity) - movie star gossip and history - cooking - something for everyone. The old standbys: Trivia -- putting -- etc -- and the usual specials. You won't be bored -- crossings are my favorite Hope you get more input. Glad to be of some help. Enjoy it !! Dusa aka Mary Ann
  12. It's been my experience that a voyage that is port heavy will not have guest lecturers......why? when everyone is off ship why provide a lecture. A crossing is different: prisoners on board, and entertainment is necessary -- thus guest lecturers every day, probably morning and afternoon. Let us know Lois.
  13. V: Did B bring the special single malt or did you pre-order or ......?
  14. Jolly Jones I'm so disappointed you would say "most destination lecturers are talking rubbish". I've learned so much from so many. For example one talk, many years ago, on the appropriate cruise: THE ALMIGHTY COD. Now who wouldn't be interested in learning more about how cod fed the world without refrigeration, and contributed to economic advancement worldwide? We agree to disagree. Merry Christmas. 🙂 Dusa
