  1. Tell that to Seabourn, Crystal ,Scenicm Hapag Lloyd...all of whom are building small expedition ships with 200-300 passengers.
  2. The whole point is not to feel out of place no matter what you wear as long as you stick with the suggested code. White tie or white jeans....up to you.
  3. The earliest you should consider a flight is noon or 1PM. If you have to spend a night and take the early flight the next day.
  4. I put it all in the recycle bin without a glance, both from Regent and Oceania.
  5. I find it interesting that every parent who wants to bring his kids on to a luxury line has the most unique, sophisticated, well travelled, well behaved children on the planet. So wheredof all those unattended brats who scream in the pool, run up and down the corridors, push all the elevator buttons and run around the restaurants come from?
  6. You also have the option to give the bartender twenty bucks for your martini. Why is people take drinks included for what is says but not tips included?
  7. Thanks for clarifying from. I did mean NOT expensive. Just spent a week in Lisbon recently and either walked or took a taxi everywhere.
  8. Yes, but formal nights are far from what they used to be. Jacket and tie (or even jacket with not) is more than acceptable whereas it used to be tuxedo or dark suit.
  9. I think you should ask your TA.
  10. I'll be watching Scenic Eclipse reviews carefully too. I plan to rebook with them this coming year. If only a fraction of what they advertise is true it will be a stunning ship. And personally I love small ships with 200 or so passengers.
  11. Definitely a taxi. They ar enow expensive in Lisbon.
  12. The location is not especially convenient. If you do stay there be sure to get a room with a view of the park. I agree that there are better options. Not sure if Bairro Alto has reopened after its renovation yet.
  13. If this is a harbinger of things to come it's bye bye Silversea for me.
  14. Not true. My Eclipse sailing was cancelled and I received full refund, coverage all related expenses like airfare and anything non cancellable, a 25% discount toward another cruise, all in a very timely manner. I know two others who were also treated well.
  15. Perhaps Freddie, you should simply skip reading my posts. I promise I won't be offended!!!!
