  1. Heard the same thing from my TA. Crossing fingers my cruise on the Shadow in late February is now in a better position to sail!
  2. Hi Lois, I was the tour director, took me months to plan...my parents, my brother, his wife. (mom/dad are 80 and brother wanted to camp so I suspect I'm solo touring after this) I had a little cabin to myself at Signal Mountain Lodge and again at Lake Yellowstone but we drove in the Suburban together to everything else and then split up, each according to his/her wish to walk around the sites. The only time I was a bit concerned in the Parks was walking back to my cabin after dark. I found out there were elk and buffalo wandering with me. M in M
  3. Hello all, made it to the Grand Tetons, Yellowstone, and Las Vegas. The scenery of our National Parks is extraordinary. Gorgeous skies first day and hazy from the fires for the rest of the time. I was able to capture the mirror image of Tetons/Trees in the beaver pond at Schwabacker's Landing on the clear day. The Falls/Canyon do not have the pretty blue sky the following day. Pix below. Saw buffalo, pronghorn, and mule deer but no moose or bears. Woke up Thursday in LV to cancelation of Ss cruise this November (not unexpected). LV is a changed town with a lot of street fights and such
  4. Appreciate everyone'w best wishes! Forecast has now been reduced to 3" so shouldn't be a problem. I"m now looking at the forecast for BWI airport on Thursday and there are all-day thunderstorms! Seriously considering switching flight to Wednesday. At least I'm already packed. Is anyone on FaceBook? I try to post a few decent photos per day there. Anyone else do this for cruises, etc.? M in M
  5. Hello frequent flyers, looking for experience here...Denver CO is expecting up to 7 inches of snow on Tuesday, into Wednesday morning. My flight arrives there at noon on Thursday. Is 24 hours enough time to clear Denver airport? The local roads so my hotel shuttle can fetch me? As long as I get there in time to catch my flight Friday morning to Jackson (Grand Tetons and Yellowstone, I hope!) I'm good so I do have another 22 hours. I live near DC and and 7/10 of an inch can paralyze things here. Thanks, Missy in Maryland
  6. Just booked Shadow from Athens to Petra for November 2021. I was originally on Seabourn for May 2020 which of course was canceled. Re-booked on Seabourn but then saw this cruise which is only 9 days and good overnights. TA canceling SB and rebooking on Shadow. Will be adding 4-5 days in Athens ahead of time. Not sure the 10 November 2020 Whisper to the Caribbean is going to go, just this "gut feeling". Have my eye on one in February 2021 instead. Missy in Maryland
  7. Have you thought about waiting for a few months to see if SilverSea cancels on YOU?
  8. Hello Terry and other sports fans, Big 10 channel is having "school days" where they re-run thrilling games from days gone by for 1 school per day. PSU was a few weeks ago and football players from the 1987 National Championship game were on FaceBook/Zoom providing commentary. Quite fun to listen to their comments. They were obviously told to keep it clean but 1 guy forgot about midnight and dropped an F bomb. He apologized like a dozen times. I also got to see this January's Iowa/PSU basketball game at the Palestra in Philadelphia on TV; I attended the game and forgot to tape it. Was in
  9. Sorry, should have been more clear...ask me on October 24 who I bleed blue and white for. Or check your Ohio State schedule for October 24...if we have a game!
  10. Hey Terry, ask me again on October 24...IF we get to play Big 10 football at all. I'm also missing baseball. Actually got to go to the game where the Nats clinched the National League, to the 4th game of the World Series, and to the Parade. I looked at the map of the Parade, figured out where they must be lining up the buses, and went there instead of the parade route. Got some good pictures. Working in DC for almost 30 years paid off. A couple of Nats players are sitting out and a couple have tested positive so I'm not sure we are going to re-start baseball in 2 we
  11. Well, Terry, our Big 10 football season just got a lot shorter. Unless each university agrees to add games with other in-conference universities. We are already playing Maryland, Indiana, and Rutgers so I hope we call Purdue quickly!!! Missy, who lives in turtle territory but bleeds blue and white
  12. Booked on the Whisper in November....IF she goes it will be the first one for her after the shutdown. Did not expect that but with the Canadian ports closed, there are no previous cruises for her on this side of the pond. Booked Seabourn Encore November 21 which is a re-booking of the same cruise (Just opposite direction) I was supposed to have been on in May from Dubai to Athens. Looking for something amusing Jan-Feb-Mar of 21 but not sure what I want to do. Would also consider July-August 21, maybe a river cruise for a change. Guessing that leads to a YES answer.
  13. I was assigned my Vista GTY about 9 months out. Probably the worst suite on the ship, very front, next to laundry. IF the cruise sails this November, I will inquire about upgrading a few weeks before, as the ship is currently quite empty. Perhaps they didn't care for my solo status and the fact that I "only" paid 10% supplement. I hope the butler enjoys bringing bubbles down the hall.
  14. There are some decent "solo sales" out there now, 10% for example. 25% in other cases. IMHO, Pick the Size and Style of the cruise line you like first. For example, Disney kinda caters to...kids.
