  1. That's great to know someone else on our sailing! You could probably ask Albatross. They helped me pick my cabin which is right next to the door to the outside deck. I chose not to take the 700 cabin due to privacy concerns with people walking by the window. I found the B category to be the best value. They seem larger than the A and C, just on the top of the ship rather than lower down.
  2. For those of you who sailed, who was the operator for your expedition? The solar eclipse itinerary for next year is run by Albatross, so experiences onboard may differ even if we go on the same ship. @aimee0715 we are booked on the sailing you are interested in. We decided on a 800 deck cabin due to the responses here and help from Albatross.

  4. Thank you so much. This is the most helpful information I've seen so far about the cabins. Not many have been on this one and posted!
  5. We are trying to decide between cabin 701 which is the only stateroom on deck 7 of this ship vs one of the similar cabins on deck 8 for an Antarctica cruise. The expedition company has told me there is no difference in size, but they seem to think cabin 701 will have more deck access due to its location, but has a partially obstructed window view with a gangway outside. I'm wondering if anyone has actually sailed on Ocean Atlantic in the 701 or 800 cabins and can advise which would be more preferable for privacy and access to outside decks. Thanks.

  7. Well, we are now in day 9 of our 15 day cruise and this is the first time I've had enough bandwidth to get on this site, only after we hit Nunavut. Thanks for the responses! It was not great but we managed with very spotty slow service for emails and whatsapp.
  8. I need to be able to connect with work and buy flights for upcoming trips during the time I'm on the Explorer. How reliable is the internet for doing these tasks? I don't need to stream but I would need a steady connection.
  9. This will be my first expedition cruise on the explorer. So the parkas are provided and yours to keep? Or do you order and pay for them in addition to your cruise fare? I was going to bring one of my ski jackets to the Greenland sailing but I may not need to pack one after all if they are provided and adequate.
  10. This our situation for an upcoming 16 night cruise on Quest. We are in a Club Continent Suite which includes 235min of internet per person, and we have 900 dollars of combined OBC to use. We are not ones to use the ship's tours but found one for $220 each that we would spend some OBC on. Daily internet would cost $319.20 per device at 19.95 per day, and we could get $150 credit per device if we don't choose to keep the included 235 minutes each. We really only care about having one device with unlimited internet. I was looking at the Essentials package which gives us $300 shore excursion credit, unlimited wifi for 1 device and an upgraded drink package (which we don't really care about), all for $599. I figure if I can use our OBC to buy this package, it's a no brainer as we'd be getting our money's worth just for the internet and shore excursion credit. Because I can't book the package until we board, I wanted to make sure that this would work using our OBC to pay for the package. Otherwise, I'd probably use $150 suite discount toward the $319.20 unlimited internet and keep the other person at the free 235 minutes (unless someone knows if we can combine the two $150 for a $300 credit). I guess we could spend the remaining $460 OBC on the chef's table package, but with free specialty dining, don't know if that's a good use of the OBC. Any practical money-saving advice is welcome, as this is our first time in a suite on Azamara!
