  1. Have you considered Primitivo, as this is the original grape all Zin comes from At the moment on board the Muse we have Luccarelli Primitivo from Puglia , a very good taste and body, try it if you have it on board
  2. On The Muse at the moment off coast of Japan and pleased to say the Rugby is shown live on your TV. It's on Live TV, Sport 24 channel
  3. What and where is "Pole to Pole" PS Thanks for a really great report
  4. If you go to the main SS web page, click on ships click on Silver Shadow click on deck plan you now have 3 pages of deck plans to Dec 4 2020 and 3 pages suite details on Dec 4 2020 plan they have changed the suite levels. Crafty!!!
  5. Kentchris Is it possible to make restaurant bookings, on line, before you actually embark the ship?
  6. Cinnamon Thank you so much for taking the time to write about your experiences on the SoD We are long time cruisers, over 1000 days on Silversea and Regent but are looking elsewhere as Silversea now actively promote special fares for children and Regent have become very expensive We booked the SoD a while ago for next March but if we had seen your reports first we would not have booked I feel very uneasy about the standard of food and lack of variety, The crowds in the Grill, The problems of being able to sit on your own, The timings of meals especially breakfast, Announcements coming directly into your cabin The arrangements for booking speciality restaurants, The length of time to disembark at the end of the cruise I also feel that we are second class citizens as we booked through an agent and not direct and we can only contact Saga through our agent, They do not recognize our booking reference and will only deal with us through our agent Once again many thanks Cinnamon for your reports
  7. English Voyager The wine steward was serving a complimentary wine so there is no opportunity to "smell" the stopper, it could also well have been a screw-top but unusual for a srew-top to be "corked" If it had been from the connoisseur list, it would have been decanted and then it would have been discovered that the wine was "corked" If the wine waiters had to taste every bottle of wine opened in the MDR, I dread think of the state that they would be in by the end of dinner As Hambagahle points out the waiter handled the situation perfectly well, changed the wine, no question!
  8. Can nothing please you I actually first contacted Mark Conroy on Aug 22nd., so a reasonable response
  9. I have been in correspondence with Mark Conroy who informed me a couple of days ago that it was a web design issue and that there was a misunderstanding with the web team who, in error, included all sailings for the "Family Cruise savings" The intention was that only holiday cruises were to be included for the offer I have just looked at the website and it appear that this has been done so we can breathe easily once again
  10. We are off in the morning, early, to join the Shadow but from terminal 5, I believe BCN flights go from terminal 3 Just waiting for Airportr to pick our luggage Aren't we lucky
  11. Les You will get free laundry for the whole cruise
  12. You are wrong Les. We have docked a number of times at the main passenger terminal area with SS and also at Dorsoduro with various SS vessels
  13. Anne Marie tells me that she will be on board for 2 months from when she arrives on the Muse, but that can all change in an instsnt. Kirk who was the CD had to leave suddenly when we were in Piraeus and we now have Allan King on board who is here 'till then end of June One further piece of information is that the crew are still wearing the old SS uniform but this is changing in the next couple of weeks so that all crew on all ships will then have the same current uniform Eventually, after the dry dock, The Shadow could well be the best ship in the fleet, ie., small numbers of passengers and an up to date vessel
