  1. Has anyone had luck with sending a box of toiletries (or anything!) ahead to either the ship or your pre-cruise hotel? The amount of liquid and lotions needed for two people for five months adds up, and I'm concerned about the added weight in our suitcases. Any advice for me?
  2. My brochure for the 2020 World Cruise says, "Unlimited Laundry, Dry Cleaning and Pressing," if you book by May 31.
  3. We haven't had problems booking some excursions when we're onboard. Yes, some will sell out, and we do try to book ahead any that are a must-do. Sometimes, though, we find we get a better idea of what they'll be like after hearing the port talk onboard, or talking to the Destinations coordinator.

  4. Our Mariners aren't doing so well, so you'll be okay if you switch to a Seahawks cap.
  5. I actually like admiring those who dress up on formal nights. So, go for it! You are right that, in general, it has gotten a bit more casual, but you'll usually find some very spiffy dressers in the MDR on formal nights. Enjoy, whatever mode of dress you choose.
  6. Yes. I signed up for the email notification, so, hopefully, I'll get counted. Thanks again.
  7. Thanks, MadMarine! That was more helpful than the information I'd found before. It looks like we can do it online.
  8. This post is aimed at US world cruise travelers. We will be on our world cruise from January 4, 2020 to May 28, 2020. I believe the 2020 census count occurs during that period, and we are concerned about not being able to be counted. Politics is dicey enough without being counted in our district to receive appropriate representation in our government. Does anyone know how we can register while we're out of the country?
  9. You sound very organized, Heidi13! I'm impressed! I began working on our excursions a few months ago, for the January 4th 146 day cruise you'll be on, Bennniee. I read through all of the ship excursions for each port, a port or two per day, and mark those I think we might be interested in. I used the itinerary to create a chart, leaving space to pencil in possible excursions with their prices, because we were trying to get an idea of what we are likely to spend on excursions for the whole cruise. Research on ports is gradual, as it is overwhelming, and my husband tends to get more into the res
  10. I find the packing cubes let me pack more clothing in a smaller space, and their weight is negligible.
  11. We are booked on the January 4, 2020 Seabourn World Cruise, so we will see you onboard, Bennniee! We love the warm, friendly atmosphere on Seabourn, both with staff and other passengers, and the exceptional level of service. We're looking forward to many ports we haven't yet visited, some return visits, and the multiple sea days. We are celebrating our 50th anniversary in 2020, and the world cruise seemed a perfect way to celebrate.
  12. SLSD, Yes, and the Pacific Northwest and Seattle are even more casual. We're really upping our game when we go on Seabourn!
  13. SLSD, you are spot on when you say people have different interpretations of elegant casual. There are many kinds of Hawaiian shirts, and for many of us on the west coast, a dressy Hawaiian shirt (think a bit more muted pattern, perhaps silk or a silk blend) is considered quite elegant and appropriate to wear for dressy occasions in warm weather.
  14. Thank you, Chairsin! My mouth is watering already...
  15. candylover, do you make your special food request by calling guest services, or do you need to talk to someone specific? I've been wondering about special requests for our next cruise. I want the escargot, too, but I need them to be gluten free! Whenever they are listed on the menu, they seem to be prepared ahead of time with gluten.
  16. We booked a guarantee veranda suite on an Alaskan cruise on the Sojourn this past fall. We learned our suite number about 10 days before sailing, suite 831. Initially I was concerned it could be noisy due to its location next to the Pool bar and outdoor restaurant, but it was very quiet and a very convenient location. Mentally prepare for whatever you might consider to be the least desirable suite, and then be happy if you get a little better. Antarctica should be amazing, no matter which suite you end up in!
  17. Several of you have indicated you can see how many of each level of suites are still empty for a particular cruise. How are you seeing this? Are you able to see this on Seabourn's web site, or is it through a TA?
  18. We were on a 24 night cruise on the Quest last year, in a Penthouse Spa cabin with a connecting door. The gentlemen next door requested that maintenance fix some shaking-vibrations in the door itself. They fixed it quickly, we were quiet, they were quiet, and so we had no problems. I'll admit I'm always a little nervous about the connecting doors, but in this case it worked well.
  19. We will be sailing on the Sojourn on the 2020 World Cruise. With five months on the ship, I'd love to bring my water flosser and electric toothbrush, but wonder if the one electrical outlet in the bathroom will accept a 110/120 plug? Thanks for any help!
