  1. I have been away from the boards for a while and just came across this thread. Glad you enjoyed the review. I have sailed on HAL twice and enjoyed both. Assuming we are able to sail again, our next cruises are on Seabourn in May of next year. Safe Sailing Jackl
  2. I have been off the boards for a while and just came across this thread. Thanks for the reference to my cruise on the Dream...you can imagine how much fun I had writing it. Jill and I would sit around the pool each morning and write down the previous days fiascos! Jack
  3. Thanks. Time flies, I didn't realize it had been that long since my last post. Jack
  4. We have two cruises tentatively scheduled for next year - one from Cape Town to Barcelona and one from Manaus to Miami. The first one is in May and I am hoping against hope that we will have a vaccine by then. At this point I am pretty sure that we will not cruise again until a vaccine is available. All of the safety measures ( while necessary!) seem to take a lot of the fun out of cruising. Safe Sailing! Jack
  5. Thanks for the kind words. My review of my Seabourn cruise should be coming soon.
  6. I just stumbled across this old string while self-isolating during the pandemic. JohnGaltny has some great ones and York, I have always enjoyed yours as well. Hope we can start cruising again. As happened to many of you, our last cruise was canceled in May and we are anxious to start cruising again
  7. We just booked this cruise for April of next year and appreciate the comments. Jack
  8. Just got back from our first Seabourn cruise. The caviar event was held on Sir Bani Yas Island in the UAE and was one of the highlights of our cruise. Huge tubs of caviar were placed on surf boards and the crew waded the boards out in the Gulf with enough caviar to feed an army. Other crew members then waded out with never ending bottles of Champagne. Warm Arabian Gulf water, bright sun, caviar and Champagne - it doesn't get a lot better than that!
  9. Just got back from Dubai. What an amazing place! Thanks for all the help on this thread - it helped quiet a bit on our visit. Jack
  10. Great. Thanks for the quick reply. Jill is already packing and this helps her decide on what to take. Good photos also! Jack
  11. Does anyone know if the Encore has the same facilities? Thanks.
  12. Thanks! That is going to help with the packing. We will be there in about 6 weeks. Jack
  13. Wife wants to know about head coverings while visiting Dubai. I assume it is necessary if visiting religious sites, but how about just around the city? Must all hair be covered? Scarf/ Shawl? Thanks
  14. We just got back from a three week trip and saw your post - sorry for the delayed response.😊 Glad you enjoyed the review - Norway is really quite beautiful - it will be well worth the wait. Enjoy! Jack
