  1. We renewed ours in Dec 19 & we were not required to have an interview - all completed on line & took a couple of weeks to get the all clear. There is probably someone with more recent experience though.
  2. good explanation: https://www.cruisecritic.com/articles.cfm?ID=3363
  3. We've had good luck with the upgrade offer on international flights. Arriving a day or two early hasn't been a problem at all because we're happy to pay the $100 or so deviation fee. It helps to have your travel agent find the flights you want & propose them to the air dept at Silversea. If they are on carriers that Silversea has a contract with, it should be fairly easy. As Randy says though, it helps to be near a hub, as you are. Good luck - please post how it works out for you.
  4. Roma, we shared that fateful cruise & I'm so happy to hear from you on this board. I hope that your long term side effects will diminish with time & that all of your cruises will be less "eventful." Be well.
  5. Lois, I'm so happy to hear that you have a good report on your mamo. On your question about charities.... There are so many in need right now but we have a terrible food insecurity issue in our country so I would suggest you find a local food bank & contribute. Continued good health.
  6. I feel more hopeful now than I felt about the Whisper June 2021 cruise that has now been canceled. Fingers crossed for the vaccine. At least it's something to look forward to after the Moon cancelation & now the Whisper. Hope springs eternal.
  7. Emtbsam...I signed in on your roll call page & will look forward to meeting you.
  8. We were on the last cruises before it call came crashing down, & it looked wonderful after the updates. Food is always subjective but I thought it was overall excellent. Their included wine selections are perfectly fine & if the "suggested" ones are not to your taste, you can certainly ask for an alternative. I can't even imagine a better crew anywhere, unless of course, you bring your own staff.😁We will do the Med. Grand Voyage without any hesitation...health considerations not withstanding. You will find that there is no comparison with Holland or Princess.
  9. We're booked on the Whisper from NYC at the end of the World Cruise so that's probably going to be impacted also. Very cautious about purchasing air also. It's just all a big old mess.
  10. Ditto for 8. Pianist (hopefully you'll have Chantal) plays dinner music for an hour & then singer (fingers crossed,Chantal) comes out for the next set.
  11. Hi RU. re your question about c-pap/oxygen: I always let them know in advance. I don't know if it's a requirement but I do to avoid any onboard surprises. When you fill in your on-line questionnaire re your passport, contacts, mini fridge & booze request, etc., there is a section for "special requests" & you can let them know there. You're going to love the Spirit.
  12. Apologies if this is redundant: https://www.latimes.com/travel/story/2020-10-07/how-to-deal-covid-19-cruise-refund-problems
  13. QSS, your post reminded me of my all time favorite NY'er cartoon from years ago which I copied & pasted to save forever.
  14. Enjoy every bite !!! And I hope the skies improve. Be safe.
  15. CLO...welcome to the fog/smoke, etc. The Conde Nast "City Guide" that features Seattle just came out this week has a lot of good suggestions for restaurants. Some are open with limited capacity & some may only have take-out. https://link.condenast.com/view/5cb4e159fc942d6faa5c6845ctl9k.70z2/afa0167a Maybe someday we will be able to try some of the new ones.... who knows? Meanwhile I hope the weather will improve tomorrow for you.
