  1. Nope. We are on SD1 departing Civitavecchia August 31.
  2. Thanks for checking in. We board August 31 in Civitavecchia and appreciate the crew updates. Look forward to hearing about the rest of your trip. Hope its a great one!
  3. Ok, thanks Jim. I took a vote and we're not real big on bridge schlepping so a few more water taxi questions: Are water taxis readily available at the port such that advance arrangements are not needed? How does one get their bags from the ship to the water taxis? Are there porters available without advance arrangements or will there be some level of bag schlepping involved? When arriving at a hotel's dock will there be someone from the hotel at the dock to help with bags, etc? Anything else that I should be aware of since this is our first time disembarking in Venice? Thanks.
  4. We will be on a SD cruise soon which ends in Venice. I'd appreciate suggestions as to how best to get from the Port to our Hotel (the Danieli). Thanks in advance.
  5. We did. 11 nights up near the Arctic Circle in July sounds pretty good to a couple of Floridians. Would love to book a segment of the inaugural cruise when/if they break up the 70 day voyage into bookable segments.
  6. If I may add my 2 cents here, it has been lovely so far. Lots of familiar faces among the crew and a passenger or two from prior cruises. Nice to meet you, mcpepe. Today at Noon we were 500 plus miles from San Juan and 2000 plus miles from Funchal where we are currently scheduled to arrive at 12:30 PM on April 24. All is well on board. As usual, great food, excellent service and many happy and smiling faces among the crew and passengers. The first day or so, the seas were slightly more agitated than usual but not at all bad. Things have calmed down nicely and we have had a couple of days of slight motion accompanied by partly cloudy skies. We seem to be heading more west than north at this point which I would imagine is designed to take advantage of warmer temperatures as long as possible. It's absolutely lovely sitting outside enjoying the gentle breeze. 60 passengers is a nice number for this yacht. No crowded areas but still plenty of people to chat with. Also, much less likelihood of running out of beer with that number of passengers on board! Will try to chime in here from time to time as my busy schedule permits.
  7. Yes, I will say hi to Dr. P. Mrs. CTBjr and I took a vote and unanimously you are IN for October. Can't wait!
  8. Thanks, ohmiss. Will give it my best shot! Traveling with a long time friend this trip who we introduced to SD several years ago and has become a fan. Mrs. CTBjr patiently waiting until October for her trip across the Atlantic!
  9. My name is Charlie - at least that's the name I'll be using during the crossing :).
  10. Great minds....Will look forward to meeting you both very soon.
  11. Great photo. Nice to see some familiar faces! Thanks for sharing.
  12. Thank you very much for confirming that for me. Much appreciated.
