    Whispering Around The World 2019

    Good luck, Mysty! We are fortunate because our pick up isn’t until the 27th. I am going to try to finish packing this week so that I can relax and enjoy Christmas. I love to travel, but I hate to pack.

    I also have good news. The Fedex tags to ship our luggage arrived this morning, so one less thing to worry about. Now all I have to do is get the cases packed.

    Yes! A very nice surprise. We responded "yes" as well. Still no luggage shipping docs, but we still have plenty of time as our cases are not scheduled for pickup until December 27th. My DH wrote to Frank, but I agree that he is probably pretty frazzled right now. Hopefully they will show up by the end of next week.

    The contents are almost the same, but as I recall, this year the box is much bigger. Of course, this is coming from someone who has trouble remembering what she ate for dinner last night, so don't hold me to it!

    No, Mysty. Not yet. We will be on the lookout again today. If nothing arrives, we will send a note to Frank Sansone so he can follow up.

    That is wonderful news - so glad you received your paperwork. I will check the porch later today as our FedEx deliveries usually come around 5.

    Yes, Mysty. They appear to be the same except for the cover. The first says "Travel Journal" and the second, "Tales of Tales". I am still not sure why we received two sets of everything.

    Hi, Fellow Cruisers! We received our box (white, not silver) on Friday with luggage tags and the Travel Journal inside. What is odd, is that we also received a silver box with luggage tags and travel journal a few weeks ago. I guess Silversea must have figured out that I always overpack! Anyway, hopefully your boxes will not be far behind if they haven't arrived already.

    SS cancelled the scheduled cruise and the Whisper is now headed to Freeport where she will enter drydock on 11/30. SS previously reported that they extended the drydock to 3 weeks to make further enhancements (for one, they are adding zodiacs and a crane for the upcoming visit to Antarctica during the 2020 WC).

    Quite welcome, Mysty. I would have posted the link myself, but I couldn't remember where I saw it.

    Mysty - No need to apologize! I had the same concern. I did some research a few weeks ago and I found a footnote somewhere on the Silversea website that confirmed that all full World Cruisers will get premium internet. On last year's cruise, I was able to use the ship's internet to make Wifi calls from my phone. I wanted to make sure that would still be the case now that Silversea has gone to a two-tier internet offering. Now back to figuring out what to pack!

    Hello everyone! My husband (DCCruiser57) and I are on for the full world cruise and looking forward to meeting all of you. We have just registered for the January 6th Meet and Mingle. See you onboard (or perhaps the Gala dinner).

    Any suggestions on these Asia Ports?

    We were on a Silversea cruise earlier this year which stopped in Myanmar. We booked a ships tour to Shwedagon Pagoda at night. We did the night tour because only bare feet (no socks) are allowed inside. The stone floors get so hot from the sun during the day that they can burn your feet.

    Silversea Shore Excursions

    Thanks very much, Embtbsam and jpalbny for your replies.
  15. My husband and I are disappointed that Seabourn has stopped doing World Cruises and we are considering Silversea’s World Cruise for 2016. My husband and I have cruised on Silversea several times – twice in the Caribbean and once in Canada/New England. However, we have never been on a Silversea shore excursion. We also have several hundred days on Seabourn. We have done numerous Seabourn shore excursions. One thing we like about Seabourn is that they don’t fill every seat on the buses and/or boats, so you never feel crowded. Does Silversea do the same with their excursions?
