  1. Silversea do it all for you. You have an antigen test the day before you disembark and you are given a printout of your test result.
  2. Not much of a difference on my trip between the two. There were 40-50 60-70 80-90 There were a few 20 somethings who were with their parents and grandparents.
  3. The best thing is to do as the instructions tell you. Guests are given check in times so that the process is easy and smooth. If everyone just turns up on mass then things could get a little chaotic and the process will take longer. I turned up at my allotted time and was onboard in twenty minutes
  4. The Silver Moon has a very well equipped gym and has more equipment than on Ovation. It is bigger and has a large studio.
  5. You are correct Lincslady. You never know if you don't go. I also think that 750 guests is a little too much
  6. I have just got off the Moon and the future cruise consultant did say that the on board booking deposit does only last for six months unlike Seabourn which lasts for four years.
  7. Yes Markham we will see what the reality is when the dust settles. I'm looking at the Holiday cruise on the Ovation,not for the itinerary but for just being on the ship at Christmas and New year. I also met a lovely couple from Cornwall on the Moon who are regular Regent sailors and they maintain that Regent is the best by far after trying everything else. I am looking at what they are offering but do not like the marketing style of "Free everything" that they try to get past you. I understand that many of the Moon crew are going to open Dawn so that is good for us that are looking to sail on the new ship.
  8. I agree Markham with your observation of Silversea passenger stuffiness. For me the stuffiness was evident in German and Dutch guests but not from US and other British guests. There is a sense of snobbery around the ship which I have never seen on a Seabourn ship. The lack of interaction from officers and to some extent the cruise director was a contributing factor that would have made the ship seem like a fine hotel where some people tip toe around and avoid eye contact. Other than all of that I really enjoyed the experience.
  9. I have just left the Moon and really enjoyed my twenty days. The entertainment is lacking and so is the CD in comparison to any Seabourn cruise that I have done. The food is generally better but I did have a few lack lustre moments that were quickly rectified. The pool and the track on deck eleven as Markham says are excellent as is the gym that I used twice a day but still the steam and sauna have not been operational and nobody has been able to give me a reason for it. The SALT bar serves the best drink in any bar on any ship so far for me. After trying all of the restaurants I went on every night of the second cruise to Atlantide which provided the best choice and best service. I will try Silversea again on this class of ship but I still wonder what it will be like when the ship is sailing full.
  10. Who said there were going to be non vaccinated guests onboard?
  11. No Dolce Vita is on deck five and there you an find the reception desk,future cruise desk and tour desk. There is a fully stocked bar with a coffee machine and a piano. The space is vast and rarely frequented by anyone. The Panorama lounge is on deck nine and had a bar and an outside terrace. I don't like it for a drink as the best place on the ship is SALT bar on deck four which only seats thirty when the shop is full but due to restrictions it will now only take about sixteen due to social distancing
  12. You are allowed to sit at the bar anywhere on the ship. Dolce Vita is a vast room and is like a ghost town. I can't think that it will be used more even when the ship is full.
