  1. Trivia 4.45 in Dolce Vita followed by Putting in the Lobby each day.
  2. We are loving the Moon despite mask-gate 😂. Just an update if it hasn't been posted already we can now sit at the bar and chat to staff 👍 and there are 299 guests on board. The space and ease of getting a seat in Salt bar is special 😍
  3. Larger can be fun, the itinerary is important to us. We weren't sure about Greece but today has been wonderful. Dinner in La Dame was beyond expectations
  4. Muse no contest, we were on her last voyage prelockdown 2020 in Aus and NZ... So fab it's imprinted in my memory forever xx
  5. Hi Lois Carlos says wow good to hear from you via us we will he well looked after on your recommendation 👍
  6. Well that's good as a significant number of Brits joined the Moon with us yesterday so either they were unaware of any insurance issues or like us, prepared to risk it 😉. The fireworks were a nice send off last night.
  7. Oh yes, been building for this since we had the March Bermuda to Barcelona trip cancelled then the end August Italy trip cancelled. Having experienced the Muse we just couldn’t resist the Moon
  8. All our COVID docs loaded to SS and to BA ready for Wednesday! The only new ‘clothes’ that we have bought for this cruise are 3 new masks each to go with our various outfits 😂
  9. Hey, we will see you on board then 🤞👋
  10. So excited to get this email earlier today from SS guest confirmation team To build your excitement further, we are pleased to inform you that we will host Silver Moon's official naming ceremony on board on July 28—the day of your embarkation—in Athens. The intimate event will be screened live in selected venues throughout the ship from 6:30pm. You will also have the option of viewing the ceremony on the TV system in your suite. Our talented bar tenders will serve celebratory cocktails, as we raise a glass to mark the occasion. A commemorative feast will follow, with selected restaurants honouring Silver Moon's naming with special menus. Please note, the evening's dress code will be informal: dresses or trouser suits for ladies; jackets for gentlemen, with ties optional.

  12. The first checkpoint on 28 June didn’t stimulate any update to the advice so I wonder if it even took place 🤔
  13. The FCO FCDO cruise advice page has not been updated since April but the advice against travel to amber list countries (Greece included) was removed today. We travel on 28th and we are not going to cancel. If the meeting occurs whilst we are away that’s progress of sorts 🙄
  14. Up until today’s news the PCR test from amber list countries was the recommendation on the gov.uk website. Until they actually post the rules proper, on 19th July I will be prepared to have to do the PCR. The trick now is to avoid exposure and end up testing positive before we board. 🤞
  15. Two weeks until e pack our bags to join the Moon, honestly cannot wait now 👏 we will need an onboard PCR test before we fly back to the UK but I spoke to SS onFriday about it and we just book it with our butler once we are on board and will be allocated a time to go to the med centre 3 days before disembarkation and the sample analysis is done on board and our result issued next day . The cost will be added to our on account $120 per test. couldn’t be easier 👍🏻
  16. Glad to see that the man from Sorrento is on board. I had sandals made on the last cruise on the Muse before total lockdown in March last year, he was expecting to go straight onto the Moon but of course he has had a long wait. I look forward to catching up with him in 4 weeks time 👏 oh and truffle cashews sound divine 😉
  17. We have just had an email from Silversea confirming that it is no longer compulsory to do the escorted shore excursions but that 1 free one per port is still included in the fare. We will now review our choices and maybe change one or more so we can self explore. 😁😎
  18. Yes I do but we are going even if it’s on the amber list, as 10 days (poss reduced to 5) isolation at home is doable for us.
  19. Following your post I looked at the Health Acknowledgment section of the guest info on my Silversea and have uploaded the vacc certificates successfully , however I don’t see anywhere to book a pier side test slot. Did you book your slot online or by another method? I note that the 2D barcode on the vacc certificates has an expiry date prior to our boarding date so another download will probably be necessary 🙄
  20. Now that’s what I needed to see ❤️. Such a wet and chilly spring here. Just over 10 weeks before we board 🤞
  21. Yes and now we will have to think about matching our masks to our outfits 🤣. At least I won’t be bringing a full makeup bag this time...just not necessary 😉
  22. Had second AZ jab 10 weeks after the first and had bruising this time also from day 2 post dose I have had a really uncomfortable pain in my upper back and left shoulder spreading to my upper arms at times. Now day 8 and it’s still there so not really sure if it’s related or an injury🤔. I think I would have remembered an injury though !
  23. We are expecting Greece to be on the Amber list meaning we have to self isolate at home for 10 days on returning. If it switches to red before July we will be cancelling as there is no way we will be forking out for quarantine in a travel lodge 🤌🏻
