  1. Do they even have a casino on board? I would sometimes try my luck as I passed by the casino on my Holland America trip.
  2. OOHHH, the spa, great idea! And tomorrow the excursions open up, so I check them out. Wine is a good idea, too!
  3. I just looked at my confirmation page and it appears that I have $1,000(!) OBC. Maybe it is because two cruises have been cancelled-I don't know. This is my first one with Ss, a 13-day transatlantic in November '21 on the Dawn, with only 2 ports. What can I 'spend' my credit on? Solo traveller here, so not sure if I need the romantic specialty dining. Can I use it for a deposit on another cruise? Help! What would you do with it? Thanks!!
  4. Happy New year to you, too. All these comments have made me think outside the box as they say. I see now that there are a lot of options I can consider. I could visit NYC on either end of my trip, even!
  5. You all are a treasure trove of information! Here's another query for you. I am actually doing a tandem(back and forth crossing), so does anybody know what time the ship RETURNS to NYC? I will need to get a round-trip train ticket in advance, so I'm wondering about the logistics of getting back home to Maryland.
  6. OH, you have given me a lot to absorb! I had not thought through many of these observations. No way am I going to take the chance of missing my crossing! Great hints. I have no problem coming up a day early.
  7. Thanks, fellow travelers. Anybody know how long/far it is from Penn Station to the dock? I figure an Uber or taxi will suffice to get me thee.
  8. I am way ahead of myself-my crossing isn't until Oct. 2021-but I was wondering what time we can actually board the ship and what time does the ship leave port? I will be taking the train from MD and want to plan accordingly.
  9. So, help me out, Cunarders....... Is it pronounced CUE-NARD or CUN-ARD? Cu-NArd or Cue-Nard?
  10. I am doing this also(in October 2021). Exactly how much time do we have in Southampton? Is it a walkable town/city? Does QM2 sponser a few excursions to choose from? Thanks.
  11. I see. I still don't get all the animosity toward this idea, though. Yes, the cost of our cruise may go up a bit to cover the new 'freebie', but it seems like most of us must be in pretty good financial standing if we are cruising on Silversea, yes? Sorry to sound condescending, but not sure how this changes things.
  12. Can't you still do this? Seems like(correct me if I am wrong) you can choose the excursion that appeals to you like normal. The operators name the time and amount of people and any other restrictions-no wheelchairs-or whatever.The only difference would be that you don't have to pay for it.
  13. Thank you for this information. Looks like I will bring along a bottle or 2!
  14. Wow, that's remarkable! The others that I have been on specifally prohibit it since it cuts into their profits. Has anyone on this board done it? I will be on a tandem(2 way) crossing and I won't get the package on either trip.
  15. Here's a strange question to go along with the drinks package one-Are you allowed to bring alchohol on board?
