  1. It's early and probably wishful thinking, but I have a few 2023 World Cruise questions: 1. There are 3 WC options for 2023. The shortest is 119 nights. If we do that option, do we get all the benefits/gifts that the people who do the 140 night WC option. In other words, are we considered "full World Cruisers"? 2. If we reserve now and book soon, do we get the benefits mentioned earlier in this thread (ie: 2 day laundry and dr visits)? 3. Are we limited to the # of specialty restaurant visits? Prego is what we really want the most. Nobu does not inter
  2. My wife & I sailed Seabourn Sojourn to Alaska from Vancouver for 10 nights in 2018. We are sailing the Seabourn Ovation on a Norway/Baltic cruise for 21 nights this year. We love Seabourn. We have also sailed Crystal four times (including one river cruise), Silversea three times, Regent, Paul Gauguin and Windstar. We love them all too. We have sailed Viking twice (Orion, NYE 2018/2010 and Sky, NYE 2019/2020). We loved both cruises. They all have their many positives and few negatives. None of them are perfect. If they all had the exac
  3. Great. Thanks czardas. I hope you have a wonderful cruise and post your thoughts on the trip.
  4. I know some answers are subject to change, but can someone answer these questions based on the sailings so far: 1. What brand of champagne is offered? 2. What brand of shampoo, conditioner, lotion, etc is offered? 3. Can you dine outside for lunch and/or dinner on a daily basis? If so, does it require reservations? 4. What drinks/food is availabe in your suite? 5. How is the gym? I can't find any good pics online. Thanks for the help.
  5. Poolside and at the gym are perfectly acceptable. That's where you sweat the most, so you are wrong, IMO. Never acceptable, IMO.😁💪 Plus, the problem with poolside is they then go to the World Café and that is a big NO. Just wear sleeves for all of the people around you.
  6. Clean athletic clothes is what I and others wear Us too, on all of our warm cruises on all luxury/premium lines. But please, no sleeveless shirts or tank tops. All men, regardless of how fit, should never wear sleeveless shirts or tank tops in public anywhere, anytime...even poolside. Just don't!
  7. We were looking at booking another cruise whilst we are on board, but there is no cruise consultant on board. We are told the guest relations manager will try and help out but how his/her expertise will be in this field remains to be seen. We are awaiting contact. Can you just do an open booking and fill in the details later, to get the discount?
  8. We were on the Orion for NYE from Auckland to Sydney at the beginning of this year. The NYE party on the pool desk was great. The band was really good and lively and many people were dancing. They had ice statues of 2 0 1 8. At midnight, they threw the 8 in the pool and replaced it with an ice 9. It was a lot of fun and went to 1:00 am from what I recall. We had so much fun we are doing NYE this year on the Sky round trip Miami! We were not on for Christmas, but the Christmas decorations were still up. They were standard and nice, but nothing extravagant or over the top.
  9. They were in our standard verandah cabin on the Serenity when we cruised from Amsterdam to Lisbon late July to mid August, after we sailed the Crystal Bach from Basel to Amsterdam. My late review to come...after I make it through the tax deadlines being as I am "imcpa".
