  1. Enjoyed every minute of every day with Silversea.Hope things continue under RC control but have extreme doubts they will.Time will tell !!
  2. Agree but having recently enjoyed a free cruise perk with Silversea related to days cruised with them it will be interesting to see whether this perk continues for loyal SS cruisers.Hope so otherwise a dignified retirement from cruising may be the only option as certainly do no fancy sailing with RC.
  3. The other benefits you mention were enjoyed by many loyal SS cruisers plus the five free cruises we have enjoyed relating to days cruised were certainly not meaningless to us and were very much appreciated.

  5. Neither am I ...only quoting what was reported!
  6. BBC lunchtime news today stated that UK travel advice for cruising has changed from over 70s not cruising to everybody not cruising.This would invalidate travel insurance and could involve a fine if the Foreign Travel advice is ignored.That advice changes our cruising prospects from may do to never .Hope it changes into 2021,!!
  7. Hope you receive some sort of clarity to enable your business to reopen and progress to some sort of normality.Totally agree your view of the politicians whose non action adds to the current frustrations we are all subjected to.Had fun with trying to fill in the gaps in your post with the most appropriate words!!
  8. That’s what I have heard but one of the main problems is the long list of countries who are not accepting USA and UK citizens into their countries and this list is expanding as we are the top two countries in the World for Covid deaths. It must be a nightmare for all cruise companies endeavouring to rearrange itineraries to start up trading again.It doesn’t help when the four countries of the UK cannot agree between them a unified policy for crossing the borders between the four member countries!!Lets hope answers are found earlier than some of the estimates that are being put forward by the Scientists!!
  9. Totally agree Wren 2.....Silversea experience on board superb, SS office appalling. They must have severe cash flow problems which is understandable in today’s circumstances because it takes maximum 7 days to process an electronic transfer of funds and normal service would be 3/4 days. Hope you receive your refund quickly.After 22 years of fabulous experience cruising with SS I cannot bring myself to hand over many thousands of pounds which may produce no cruise and at worst no refund if SS should fail financially.
  10. Have usually preferred Privately arranged excursions but always enjoyed SS excursions where it suited us better.The big plus for SS is they will arrange for the ship to wait if you are held up beyond sailing time.This can be costly on DIY excursions to play catch up once the ship has gone,From experience it can run into Thousands of pounds to catch up and you have to arrange it yourself in a foreign land.!
  11. Wholeheartedly share your concerns.Chrism23 ...Hope your proposed cruises work out ...fingers crossed.
  12. Having taken many SS cruises with included Business Class flights we have always received what was offered with our choice of seats made well in advance.Must admit I have never noticed the small print but that is down to me probably placing too much trust in SS! Hope it works out okay for you and you enjoy the experience.
  13. Couldn’t agree more and we have decided not to cruise until mid 2022 and have taken the risk free way forward of not making forward bookings for the first time since our 40 days a year with Silversea commenced in the late nineties.Did not realise how much we would miss the thrill of booking and cruising with a Silversea!!
  14. Delighted to see a post with COMMEN SENSE at the heart of it !!
  15. All this uncertainty and reduction in original insurance cover is a sign of financial difficulties.Hope not as we enjoyed our Saga cruises to date and UK/UK cruising without Flying is very appealing.
