  1. I think the always available is just that , and yes you can request it in MDR, but always available is perhaps a wider selection in MDR. Wine pairing dinners are possible in La Dame only, I think. Yes indeed if you book multiple La Dame, or any other restaurant for that matter, and then cancel, no problem, no cost to you, and it frees up the table for others.
  2. Yes the Crew Fund is another avenue, and I have been on many long Special Expedition Cruises where a map of the Voyage is auctioned on the last night, and all the receipts ( sometimes 2-3 thousand $ ) go to the Crew Fund.
  3. Much enjoying your comments and pictures, for which many thanks. How are you finding the Expedition Team in terms of quality of presentations/lectures and their guest interaction around the Ship?
  4. Indeed the Excellent Crew are recognised on Silversea with Employee of the Month presentations, and over the years I have been present at a great many of these on the farewell evening when the Crew Parade, and the HR Manager together with the Captain will present the Crew, sometimes more than one, with certificate and reward, which I believe is monetary. You are absolutely correct, the Crew are one of Silversea’s enduring legacy’s and greatest strength, and long may that be the case. There was a Cruise Director some years ago now who always introduced the Crew by referring to them as the ‘Ladies and Gentlemen of Silversea’.
  5. Due to the adverse weather Silver Wind will not make it to Tower Bridge , likely to Tilbury.. All ship visits cancelled.
  6. Fabian has been with Silversea for many years now, I would think 6-10 years and we knew him when HD on The Explorer before he moved onto the Classic Fleet. He is now the Senior HD and all the others report to him, he is rarely at Sea these days and normally based in Monaco where he specialises in the planning stocking etc for the new Ships as they develop. A really charming young man and imho an excellent Hotelier.
  7. S.A.L.T. is an acronym for Sea and Land Taste, according to a recently received eshot from the M D of S S in London. Designed in collaboration with Adam Sachs a multi award winning journalist the new S.A.L.T. Program will be tailored according to where the Ships are sailing and will incorporate both ship based and shoreside enrichments including market trips, winery visits, and dining experiences in regional restaurants and bars. A dedicated S.A.L.T. Lab to explore culinary cultures from around the world and a new S.A.L.T. Restaurant will serve regional cuisine that will adapt according to where you are sailing. Adam Sachs is the Director of Silversea’s Sea and Land Taste project. There is no mention of this concept rolling out to other ships in the eshot I have received
  8. Just received an e shot from S S saying that in Summer 2020 the Wind will undergo further works including Ice Hull and itineraries for 2020/21 in Antarctica .
  9. I understand it is no more sinister than a potential charter that is still confirming the required dates, then others presently waitlisted will be released back to the marketplace.
  10. We got off the Whisper this time last year in Manhattan and it was a breeze, took no more than ten minutes for luggage and immigration, in fact we were so early we then had to wait for our car. There are Porters to trolly the luggage if you need them, we did and he got us through promptly.
  11. Pier 66 is no longer managed by Hyatt, they pulled out last year as the Owner would not invest in the property, I saw it in April this year and it looks very tired and shabby. We stayed at The Ritz Carlton which was excellent , and a great location. Four Seasons were under construction with a hotel and residences but imagine that will not be complete yet.
