  1. HAL and Seabourn are our 2 favorite cruise lines. I'm very concerned about their viability going forward after cornoavirus. "Paying forward" may not be the best thing to do. HAL is offering more goodies if you book next year's cruises with full payment up front. Since they haven't paid back all bookings form cancelled 2020 cruises it seems like a ponzi scheme. Hope I'm wrong.
  2. I was on that same cruise and I totally agree with you about the lack of knowledgeable explorations speakers. We cruised in a part of the world very few see...lands formed by colliding tectonic plates, volcanoes, glaciers and unique wildlife. There were no geologists, naturalists, glacierologists or anyone with real knowledge on board to help us understand the wonders of the north polar region and what we were exposed to. All we had was boring, monotone, slow talking Glenn Michael who has zero knowledge of the polar region and read from a script, perhaps prepared by someone in Seattle. Bummer. He put me to sleep with his intro. We heard that Glenn (nice guy, BTW) would be the CD/EXP Director for the World Cruise and maybe more. That would be a terrible shame! Tino, the CD on Rotterdam, doesn't know the fate of the CD position with HAL. Well, he does, but he can't really talk about it. Perhaps it will disappear in the traditional sense. HAL HQ controls more and more detail about what happens on their vessels, down to minutia. I guess we'll see what happens.
  3. But your booking could be cancelled without penalty anytime before cancellation penalties/final payment time.
