  1. Just got the brochure for 2020/2021 cruises. Interesting to note that SS is only showing the current deck plan for the Shadow and not the post drydock plan.
  2. Must not be a great deal of interest in the various mid voyage land trips as we keep getting e-mails advertising the ones on the various legs.
  3. That is why it's best to use a travel agent - ours gets immediate response in terms of receiving a SS invoice in addition to getting benefits such as a rebate on the cost of the cruise.
  4. The American shipyards are among the most expensive, so I doubt it would be done in the US.
  5. No, but if the drydock was in the Bahamas, don't you think they would offer a pre drydock transatlantic to max revenue? However, maybe they are going to do prep work on the crossing?
  6. Since the last cruise before drydock in Athens on 11/2, it appears that the it maybe in Europe?
  7. A 3rd WC event at Aitutaki: Kia Orana Aitutaki (AIT-01) Available Duration : 05:00 hours - Estimate departure : 9:00 AM Experience the color, rhythms and rituals of a lively island festival, as you arrive on the sandy shores of the utterly unspoiled Cook Islands. A spectacular South Pacific paradise of intense color and heavenly seascapes, there is a lot to celebrate here. Enjoy festivities showcasing the local dance, culture and heritage, try the island's freshly prepared dishes while also relishing time to soak in the stunning surroundings. The gleaming white sands and glowing azure seas are the idyllic setting for this day of island celebrations, on what's said to be the 'most beautiful lagoon in the world'. Please note: This World Cruise experience involves a minimal amount of walking and is suitable for guest with limited mobility. Lightweight clothing, protection from the sun, comfortable shoes, and insect repellent are recommended. Sea conditions depending, disembarkation might be via Zodiac (uncovered inflatable rafts). Advanced reservations are not required.The duration of the festival is 5 hours (from 9am to 2pm) and and all guests can join in anytime, either before your PM tour or AM tour.
  8. Got this from our TA from SS. WORLD CRUISE COLLECTON We are excited to announce that for the first time ever, we have created a World Cruise collection of bespoke Shore Experiences available exclusively for our World Cruisers 2020. There are 35 amazing experiences to choose from (or don’t choose and do them all!), each one offering a chance to travel deeper and explore the cultures and traditions of your destinations. So, from a traditional lunch and welcome dance in the light of the Moais of Rapa Nui to a private dinner at the famous Bloody Mary’s in Bora Bora and a steam train ride through the tropical landscape of central Java to a 19-course tasting menu in Girona’s beautifully preserved Old Town, we think there is something for every one of our Legends.
  9. Tours are now available for booking. In addition, it appears SS has added a couple of WC events: Pitcairn Island Sea conditions permitting a landing, spend the day in Adamstown exploring the storied hideaway island of the HMS Bounty's crew of mutineers. Arrive by zodiac or traditional Pitcairners' longboat and you'll be welcomed ashore by the tiny population of 50 islanders, learning of their life on this far-flung island. Your expedition afternoon will begin with your choice of either ATV or small van. The mutineers' descendants will share their stories, and you can find out more of their tiny society, as you visit the museum, cemetery, and school or should you wish, enjoy a traditional lunch in a local home. Birdlife, like the endemic Pitcairn Reed Warbler will provide a melodic soundtrack to your explorations. Mounu Island Come ashore to an island kingdom of color and culture, enjoying a relaxing afternoon on the beautifully authentic Tongan beaches of these sister islands. Scattered across 170 islands, the Polynesian kingdom of Tonga welcomes you to one of its finest white sand beaches. Spend time unwinding, getting a taste for Tonga's unhurried, vibrant island culture as you lay back to relax on the soft sand, or wander through the shallow waves that fold ashore. Dive into the Tongan culture and heritage, and cool off with an ice cold drink from the Silversea Beach Bar set up just for you. Please note: This World Cruise experience involves a minimal amount of walking and is not suitable for guests with limited mobility. Guests must be able to maneuver over soft sand as there are no paved pathways. Bathing suits with a cover-up and suitable water shoes are recommended along with sun protection and a beach towel. Bathrooms are not available on the island. Sea conditions depending, disembarkation might be via Zodiac (uncovered inflatable rafts). Advanced reservations are not required. The visit will be self-exploration and departure time will be confirmed once on board.
  10. Gilbert will be on the Whisper for the 2020 World Cruise - January through the end of May.
  11. It is amazing that there is so little activity on this thread, especially given that there are 250 or more world cruisers on board.
  12. Just thought I would bring this thread back to the top. Final payment is due 9/9. so I thought we would get a lot more activity on this thread.
