  1. The Chronicles (daily newsletter) states the following "no shorts, jeans, or flip flops after 6 PM in the public areas." T shirts during the day are fine. I wear one most days although I change into golf shirt for lunch in the MDR.
  2. Not sure why, but it always takes at least a day or more for the website to be updated once SS has informed booked guests of a cancellation.
  3. Correct and the overlands are non refundable and usually have to be paid in full 120 days in advance. Usually they are very limited in size, are very popular and often sell out. We did 2 safaris in Africa and a visit to Chengdu to see the Pandas on 2019 WC. All 3 were excellent.
  4. Another good source it toursbylocals.com. Some very good local guides at a much lower cost.
  5. According to Mark Conroy, they delayed the Wind conversion due to the cost - $60 million. They are trying to conserve cash since there is no cruising. Cash is king right now. Cruising should resume around the 1st of 2021 and therefore they hope to start the 90 day, $60 million refit next March/April.
  6. Today, SS delayed the first sailing of the Origin from October 3rd to November 7th. From their website. Silver Origin:• OR201107007 - From November 7, 2020, Silver Origin will resume sailing
  7. I seriously doubt that any cruise will go this year - 2021 at the earliest and that is somewhat questionable.
  8. A booked passenger on an October 2021 Silver Dawn cruise posted on the SS facebook page that they were notified the cruise was cancelled as the delivery of the ship will be delayed. However, the SS website has not yet been updated.
  9. Silver Origin has sailed from Bridgetown and is now enroute to Willemstad.
  10. From the website. Silver Wind:• WI210614014 - Silver Wind will welcome guests once more from June 14, 2021
  11. The Origin is now due west of the strait of Gibraltar headed to Tenerife.
  12. Sorry, I was referring to the loyalty benefits, but my recollection of shareholder benefits is that for the most part they could not be combined with other OBC.
  13. I think we need to put this in perspective. RCL paid $1 billion for 2/3 interest. Thus, that would make the remaining 1/3 worth about $333 million, not $666 million. Thus, paying $245 million at this time is a great deal for Manfredi, especially given the depressed value of RCL stock.
  14. That will probably (and hopefully) never happen.
