  1. SDuckers - safe travels! Please post if you can! Would luv to hear about your sailing ! Bob in NY
  2. https://www.cruiseindustrynews.com/cruise-news/25738-seabourn-announces-updated-restart-date-for-seabourn-sojourn.html
  3. Thank you Princess Cruiser for taking the time to post already. 61 passengers - cannot imagine ... wish we were on board ! Post as you can - sailing along with you in spirit as are a lot of us ! Bob
  4. cruiseej - Actually I had a question about the surf event. Looking at January22 - 7 day sailings - some itineraries specifically list Carambola Beach, Saint Kitts And Nevis while other just list Saint Kitts And Nevis. Should I assume (never a good thing I know!) that all Saint Kitts stops are Carambola beach days? After experiencing one - hard to pass on a beach day like that on a future sailing - and would be disappointed to find out on board that I made an assumption I should not have ! thanks all!
  5. Thanks Borna! - I know you have another week until you are on board - looking forward to sailing along with you if you are able to post while on board. Bob
  6. Neverlookback -safe travels. If you are able to post while on board...would love to live vicariously through your sailing if you can take us along ! Enjoy ! Bob
  7. Cruiseej - thanks for the question - was wondering the same thing....since I need my laptop to check workwise once or twice a day but would also need/want internet access on my phone.
  8. Love this board! Was worried on our first sailing that we would not use all of our on-board credit (that didn't happen LOL!😜) but great to know its an option for the future.
  9. Neverlookback Totally agree w/you. Once on Seabourn - no going back ! (BTW - we are neighbors somewhat - I am in Rockland County!)
  10. Lisacope Congratulations...very jealous! When are you sailing? Believe me - after taking a Seabourn cruise.....you will NOT be able to go back 😂t to a mainstream line We took our first Jan20 before everything started shutting down and it is what has gotten me thru these past 15 months (thinking about the amazing trip we had). We just finished paying off our home mortgage and now those funds are earmarked each month for our next Seabourn cruise ! I keep dropping hints to my wife about an October Greece sailing 😉 Bob
  11. Thanks everyone for confirming I was not missing something on their site. With a restart as important as this - would think they would have had the information out and up on the web site first thing on the 11th - time will tell.
  12. Unless I am completely missing them on their site - have the 7 day Greece sailings been posted anywhere? Thought they were available as of the 11th?
  13. Thank you Never Look Back - cannot wait to sail along with you. Appreciate taking the time when you are sailing to post your experiences and observations.
  14. Cruisinbanjo - no mention of the Venture. The FB live session was all about the return to cruising in Greece and the Caribbean.
  15. Thanks all - was not able to watch but assumed that they would try to roll out some Carib sailings in keeping with what other lines are doing.....
  16. Usually someone posts the link after the fact - I can as well and or report back with any news !
  17. Crusinbanjo -believe Josh L is doing another FB live session this week - if so perhaps he will have an update?
  18. WOW - had a feeling they were going to be high. Even though I was thinking about an October sailing...my DW looked at me yesterday and said not a chance...way to soon to be thinking about an overseas flight and a cruise (we are in US - NY). Sticking to US travel for 2021...maybe Canada in the fall if they open up their boarders.
  19. Based on the article just posted under the News section...I bet I will be in for sticker shock (LOL!) time will tell....
  20. tv24 - thinking the same. Anxious to book a late Sept sailing (lower temps and less crowds).....will be interested to see how the early sailings are handled. Will also be very curious on the pricing of these sailings. Probably being one of the few people who do not have a FCC...hoping the are reasonably priced to entice bookings.
  21. Totally agree with you SLSD My wife and healthcare field daughter keep telling me...just because you are vaccinated does not mean everything goes back to the way it was.... My daughter who works in a NYC hospital said she expects to be wearing PPE well into 2022...and she is not on a covid floor/unit I was not happy to hear that ☹️
  22. Interesting news today from Royal and Celebrity that they are restarting in June in the Caribbean and St Martin. Wondering since the Odyssey is currently positioned in the Caribbean......if that could be an option for a restart for her down the road.... start her Caribbean season much earlier then normal and start off small in terms of capacity .... time will tell
  23. Scheduled for my first vaccine/dose in a month - DW still waiting for her age group to be called up! Would definitely love to cruise in the fall - we would be vaccinated by then and would only sail if all crew and passengers are required to be vaccinated. Where that may be - is anyone's guess at this point ! Not sure how I feel about a mask on vacation - here in the tri-state mask wearing is a MUST - in fact the only time I see someone without one on is a rare occasion when I am outside running on the weekend which is why I think the numbers in the NY area are holding steady. Do I want to be on vacation and have to wear one on board or getting off a ship....not really. Time will tell for all of us when we will be back on board - most important thing is that the lines don't rush back and end up with an outbreak on board a sailing.
  24. It will be very interesting to see the position airlines take as well. But I guess more importantly what position countries take - for incoming tourists whether it be by plane, ship, train or automobile crossing a boarder. I know their are vaccine requirements to travel to certain countries.....maybe this becomes a requirement to travel....period. As soon as I am eligible I am signing up as is my wife and adult children.
  25. Crystal just announced vaccine requirement Have to believe Seabourn will follow....will be interesting how Carnival Corp handles across all their brands but it is a must for myself and family to travel ..... in the hope that it is in the fall of 2021 where-ever that may be or who will have us ..... https://www.cruiseindustrynews.com/cruise-news/24410-crystal-cruises-to-require-covid-19-vaccine-for-guests.html
