  3. Unfortunately, I saw this today on the Seabourn site: SEATTLE, August 31, 2020 – Seabourn, the ultra-luxury resort at sea, announced today that it will cancel additional voyages for three cruise ships in its fleet as a part of its pause in global ship operations. The announcement applies to Seabourn Ovation, Seabourn Encore, and Seabourn Quest with each ship having a different “effective through” date. Specific details are as follows: Seabourn Ovation: with its operations pause effective through January 3, 2021 Seabourn Encore: with its operations pause effective through January 6, 2021 Seabourn Quest: with its operations pause effective through May 10, 2021. Guests who are currently confirmed on one of the affected voyages on Seabourn Quest’s Antarctica, Amazon, Panama Canal, South America and Transatlantic cruises scheduled between November 7, 2020 and April 25, 2021, will automatically be re-accommodated in the same suite on the same voyage during Seabourn Quest’s 2021-2022 season, at rate paid, within 30 days, as well as receive a shipboard credit that is calculated based upon voyage length. The shipboard credit is $300 per suite for voyages up to 20 days in length and $500 per suite for voyages of 21 days or more.
  4. I just check the Silver Wind location and after 11 hours in Barcelona, she is sailing at 11 knots to a reported destination of Marseilles. I don't think Marine Traffic deceived me, but it does add more to the mystery. I would not expect it to be converted to Ice Class until 2021, if capacity is needed then, saving the $60 DCCRUISER mentioned for operating capital. They could still do cosmetic upgrades up until June 2021, then if the industry is strong enough strengthen the hull 1 year after original schedule.
  5. I believe the UK staff for SS go to the office at least one day a week. If they owed me I would call each day, and the next week call at a different time in the hope of finding a phone that is answered. In my isolation I would have the schedule to permit me to do it. Good Luck.
  6. The ship locators I just looked at, have the Cloud still moored at Marseille. This was in SeaTrade Cruise news today: Silver Spirit achieved classification society DNV GL's certification in infection prevention for maritime (CIP-M). The Spirit has been selected to do chartered to do short Saudi cruises : https://www.seatrade-cruise.com/news/silver-spirit-chartered-red-sea-cruises-saudi-summer-campaign I hope they find good success in their operations and procedures. MSC had success in their first week Italian cruise. Important steps in beginning the return to sea. LADY MEER -- Have you made any progress on being informed of cancellation and options open to you?
  7. AS OF JULY 20, 2020 SILVERSEA “CRUISE WITH CONFIDENCE” OUR NEW CANCELLATION POLICY NOW EXTENDED THROUGH 30 APRIL, 2021 YOU CAN BOOK YOUR CRUISE WITH CONFIDENCE You will be allowed to cancel your cruise for any reason up to 48 hours prior to departure and receive a 100% Future Cruise Credit with a 2 year validity, for all voyages departing prior to 30 April, 2021. VOYAGES CANCELED BY SILVERSEA - Guests will receive up to 125% Future Cruise Credit* for cruises canceled by Silversea. ..... (from Silversea website:) https://www.silversea.com/temporary-amendment-to-cancellation-policy.html?cid_email=em_USA_EM2007062590_VS_OTHER_CON_DEM_LINK&IndividualId=15192695&utm_campaign=USA_EM2007062590_VS&utm_source=USA&utm_medium=Email&cid=48448&mid=148960874 The wording states "UP TO". In the case of the Wind cancellations, there were Cloud voyages that were available in Antarctica. Silversea made those available at favorable pricing terms. I too was confused by not being offered 125% FCC, but when I looked up the email from a week ago saw this. It could all have been handled better; however, with the pandemic, working from home, and all the moving parts in a company of this size I can understand lack of perfect communication. It is still a fine line and I opted for the new January 30, 2021 18 day with South Georgia. Keep smiling and stay healthy.
  8. Today I received my Wind Cancellation email for the December 5 2020 sailing. This matches the other reports today. I have options to sail on the Cloud 2020 or 2021. Or something different. Yesterday I used an online ship location service: it reported the Wind to be in Marseilles. I am not sure if it is correct or not. Good luck to all "Wind Riders" as you evaluate your many options.

  9. This Dated today on Silversea site: INFORMATION ON THE COMMENCEMENT OF TRAVEL July 28, 2020 While we have suspended all current voyages with your wellbeing in mind, we understand that you may be waiting to travel once again. A common trait among all those with a passion for discovery: rough waters only strengthen our yearning to explore the authentic beauty of our planet. Silversea’s mission is to support you in traveling our beautiful world in safety, comfort and luxury and with the interest of commencing operations as soon as it will be safe to do so Silversea is currently proceeding with a “rolling” cancellation system in which we always cancel cruises only when we know that we won’t be able to operate these for sure avoiding to cancel the ones on which there is still a possibility of resumption. We are doing our utmost best to take the best decisions in a very uncertain time and we will keep updating this page with the latest information. Silversea’s global family looks forward to reunite as soon as possible as our ships hopefully recommence their itineraries around the world: Silver Cloud: • E4201028019 - Silver Cloud will set sail on October 28, 2020 Silver Wind: • WI201111010 - Silver Wind will welcome guests once more from November 11, 2020 Silver Shadow: • SS201110015 - Silver Shadow will commence service once again from November 10, 2020 Silver Spirit: • SL201105017 - Silver Spirit will set sail on November 5, 2020 Silver Muse: • SM201010021 - From October 10, 2020, Silver Muse will resume sailing Silver Whisper: • WH201110010 - Silver Whisper will commence service once again from November 10, 2020 Silver Explorer: • E1201020011 - Guests will cruise on Silver Explorer again from October 20, 2020 Silver Moon: • MO201002010 - Silver Moon will set sail on November 8, 2020 Silver Origin: • OR200919007 - From September 19, 2020, Silver Origin will resume sailing Site Link: https://www.silversea.com/information-on-itinerary-changes.html
  10. This has been a useful thread, thanks for the insight. I just found it today and am booked on the Wind for December 5 Antarctica and need to decide to cancel or not by the end of the week.
