  1. Since I booked 3 on a 21 day cruise, I bet you will get 2. One per week.
  2. We will be on the Odyssey next April. I noticed the deck plan shows an area for The Retreat that appears much smaller than the area on the Ovation. Is it supposed to be the same set up?
  3. I am somewhat surprised by the lack of activity in the roll calls for our Odyssey cruise. I started a roll call for our 4/28/22 cruise over a month ago and have had no replies. Numerous other pending sailings have also been stated with very few or no replies. Is this normal?
  4. We will be on the Odyssey next April for the 21 day Panama Canal cruise. I have just made 3 reservations for the TK Grill, (2) at 7:45 and 1 at 8:00. Any one have any idea how that might work out with the show times?
  5. Damn - as a newbie to SB, in a PH on Odyssey, that really doesn’t sound like the “luxury” I am expecting.
  6. Hopefully one year from today we will be sailing out of Miami heading for Los Angelis on the 21 day Panama Canal Passage. This hopefully is a mute question, but with the way the Caribbean cruises will be starting up with limited passengers for social distancing, if a cruise is fully booked and the limitation of passengers is still in effect, how will they determine who goes and who doesn’t?
  7. Thanks for the very nice replies. If it matters, we will be on the Odyssey.
  8. It’s a little over a year out from our cruise and I’m beginning to wonder about reservations. It appears that reservations for the TK Grill are now open. I have seen discussions of reservations for the grill, that appear contradictory. The brochure indicates there is only one reservation available for the entire cruise. I have also seen a discussion that it is actually one reservation per week and also that it is fairly easy to make reservations once on board. I also understand that the Colonnade has TK theme nights which also require reservations. My questions are: can I currently make only one reservation or can I make a reservation for each of the three weeks of the cruise? is there a possibility of making more TK reservations than the allotted number once on board? If the Colonnade presents a theme night we would like to attend which conflicts with a TK reservation we hold, will it be easy to reschedule the TK reservation? Thanks for your help.
  9. To pay in full and get a 10% discount. We’re taking advantage of it. Anyone else?
  10. I despise wearing ties. On our last cruises on Regent I wore very nice slacks, sports coats and shirts and fit in quite nicely without a tie. I hope to do the same on Seabourn.
  11. Does the $50 laundry bag also cover dry cleaning?
  12. I just had a disappointing discussion with a Seabourn representative who told me that only the referring individual receives the $250 credit. The first time cruiser does not. Is that correct?
  13. Thanks, I am getting a higher OBC. But it was a nice thought. Ernie
  14. I noticed the “Referral Coupon” thread. Does anyone know if that is still available and might be something we could take advantage of?
  15. Thank you both for your very useful information.
  16. My DW and I will be taking our first Seabourn cruise on the Odyssey’s Panama Canal Passage on April 28, 2022. We have previously cruised primarily on HAL and most recently on Regent and Silversea. We have a few questions about what to expect aboard the Odyssey. We will be in a penthouse suite, if that makes a difference. LAUNDRY- On HAL, we stay in a Neptune Suite and have unlimited complementary laundry and dry cleaning services. On Regent, there was no complementary laundry service, but there were self-service laundry rooms on each deck. What should we expect on the Odyssey? It looks like there are self-service laundry rooms but they may be very limited. Are there any Laundry/Dry Cleaning packages for purchase at reduced rates? DINNING- We normally enjoy specialized dining venues rather than the main dining room. It appears the only specialty dining venue will be the TK Grill. We particularly enjoy Italian cuisine and I see no Italian venues. Will we be able to enjoy a variety of cuisines including Italian? This will also be our first Panama Canal cruise. Are there any experiences we should not miss. Thanks in advance for your help. Ernie
  17. Hello Jacqui. I’m both happy and sad to let you know that we have cancelled our April 2022 14 day Tropical and Eastern Caribbean cruise on the Rotterdam. We have replaced it with a 21 day Panama Canal cruise departing Miami April 28, 2022 on the Seabourn Odyssey. Thanks for your help. Ernie
  18. Thank you both for the very helpful information. We just booked the Odyssey in April 2022 for a 21 day Panama Canal cruise. Really looking forward to it.
  19. My DW and I are considering booking the Odyssey for a 21 night Panama Canal cruise. This would be our first Seabourn cruise, however we are experienced cruisers. We are 3 star on HAL and have most recently cruised on Regency and Silversea. We would like information particularly about your experience on the Odyssey. How old is the ship and is she in good condition? How many restaurants are there and what type of food do they serve? We were very pleased with the food on Regency and hope the Odyssey will be as good. We would appreciate a venue for quiet music before and after dinner. Any information you can provide will be appreciated. Thanks- Ernie
