  1. Hi In this mornings Daily Mail https://www.dailymail.co.uk/money/markets/article-8640269/Carnival-hit-ransomware-attack-Hackers-steal-passenger-information.html Carnival not revealing which brand was attacked, hopefully not Seabourn!! This was probably the last thing they needed to deal with!!
  2. Sorry your Odyssey cruise has been cancelled, our Sojourn cruise for October has also been cancelled. Looks like we are all in the same boat!!! 😢(sorry but had to say it!!) Here's to 2021 and a clean bill of health and plenty of Seabourn cruises
  3. Can anyone confirm this with something concrete, can’t find anything about it on Seabourn website or on google.
  4. Hi From Seabourn website announcing renovations, we were on one of the first cruises out of Athens last July. NB Balloons aren't standard, it was my birthday that day!!! New TV's I think Samsung. Ship looked amazing, our last trip was 2 years before. "Guest suites have also seen significant updates, with Veranda Suites now showing new stone tops on the bedside cabinet and credenza, joined by a new table, designer bedding soft goods, and sofa pillows. Premium Suites highlight dramatic updates with new furniture and a new color palate throughout the entire range of top-end accommodations on Seabourn ships that rival the finest hotels in the world. Entertainment and technology systems also received a number of updates during the refurbishment. New televisions are now installed in all guest suites, integrated with an interactive new high-definition TV system that features added channels such as BBC HD, HGTV, The Food Network, and The Travel Channel. New internet optimization technologies have been installed to help improve overall guest experience across the ship. All suites have USB 2.0 outlets on the nightstand, perfect for charging personal devices with ease. Wireless access points have been added to every guest suite and boosted in public areas, which improves overall access to the internet throughout the ship, while additional updates to the network improves overall service."
  5. We received an email from our agent the night before boarding Explorer on 28 Jan, giving a terminal change from J to C which is where we boarded from.
  6. TA checked with Regent (Australia) yesterday and they said it is still terminal J for 28th Jan and that we would be informed if there was any change.
  7. We had an Air Credit for our cruise in October, our agent priced flights then rang Seabourn to get their price. Seabourn were about $1000 cheaper than the TA so we were all set to book when the agent at Seabourn told us that once booked any changes or cancellation meant 100% loss of fare!!! Our TA queried this as she had never heard of this before, she also checked the changes/cancellation direct with the airline (Qantas/AA) and it is $400 pp. We thought it over and decided for $1000 we could not risk the Seabourn flights so have booked direct with Qantas. Is this the norm with Seabourn Air around the world??
  8. When we did an Odyssey cruise in Athens back in July our travel agent booked our transfers using PAM tours (PAM DMC) all cars were Mercedes and the drivers were excellent. Would highly recommend. But I did noticed there was a taxi rank outside the terminal at Piraeus which had plenty of taxis.
  9. Our Explorer docs arrived before Christmas and showed terminal J for us on 28 Jan. Will have to get TA to check with Regent if there has been a change.
  10. I have to disagree, I have all 5 episodes of this series and the Shadow is the only boat that does not get named. All other ships are mentioned as she is boarding, company and ship name. The bed thing is something she does on nearly every episode unfortunately.
  11. When we were on B2B on Encore in August we did not have to do boat drill again. If you have done the drill within the last 30 days no attendance necessary The Herald mentions it
  12. Very strange as she names every other ship in the previous 3 episodes. She also goes to great lengths to reminisce about her previous cruises on the ship with her mother but still does not name the ship. Perhaps there was a falling out between SS and Ch5 between filming and airing the episode so ch5 banished everything SS. We will all have to wait with bated breath to see if someone can solve the mystery. SS don't even mention the show in their press release section.
  13. Yes sorry for confusion, hoping Isklaar can confirm the process of change over day and what happens to used shower/shampoo pump bottles in readiness for new guests
  14. Hi are you able to find out how they are to be cleaned for the next guest or do they replace bottles with new ones for new guest. Thank you
  15. How does one book with an agent in the US? Thought there were country restrictions like having a local address.
