Cool Cruiser

Cool Cruiser (2/15)

  1. It is easy to get a taxi. Does takes some time, depending on where you are in the line coming off the ship.
  2. We did this on our last Oceania cruise and we’re disappointed. The pours were generous , but the food was not as good as the other special dinners. I must not have a Champagne pallet . after that many champagnes I could not distinguish one from another, I do highly recommend the other two dinners. Better food and the wines were more to my taste.
  3. We will be taking our first cruise with Silversea on Silver Spirit in August. Do they have a good gym? Do they have exercise classes?
  4. Glad to hear your report. We are about to take our first cruise on Silversea. We live in a resort in Texas (The Woodlands). Dressing up for dining out means nice slacks and a nice shirt for my husband and a nice top and pants or a casual dress for me. We travel frequently. Often on cruises. But my husband gave up his tux, and I gave up the sparkly ball gowns years ago. He always takes a coat and tie a nice pants, and I will have dark pants and a lacy top.Good to know that we won't have to go out and buy a new wardrobe.
  5. Thanks for the clarification. So the SB drink package is like wine on a river cruise.
  6. Since we have never purchased a drink package (we bring our wine suitcase and/or purchase wines onshore) and now have one as part of SB, pardon my questions. I assume that one can order a glass of any wine on the SB list, and the price listed is what someone would pay who does not have a drink package? Is that only with meals, or in bars also?
  7. We have booked a cruseon Silver Spirit forAugust 2024. I was trying to get into MySilverSea this morning and got the message that the server could not be reached. Am I doing something wrong. I have tried both Safari and Goggle Chrome.
  8. We switched ti the Simply More pricing for considerably less.I left it to my TA to work out the pricing
  9. Thanks for the info. We never purchase a wine package on a ship. We like to pick up wines onshore. But it would be nice to have an OK glass of wine for lunch without opening a bottle and paying corkage.
  10. We booked our cruise using the Simply More promotion. Our invoice states that we have the Simply More House Beverage program. Does anyone know how the contents of House Select package and the Prestige Select package differ from the Simply More program?
  11. We were avid Crystal cruisers for years. And we’re very sad when they went out of business.Now that they have been bought and are beginning to sail again we are waiting for reviews before we book with them again. In the meantime we have booked a cruise on Silversea fo 2024.I would appreciate comparisons of Crystal and Silversea from those who have sailed on both. Cindy
  12. I am interested in information on the Silversea air program. Cindy
  13. There is a nice Hilton hotel that is connected to the airport by a walkway. We have stayed there several times pre-Covid. Don’ know if they still do this, but they used to have a shuttle into Rome for guests. So you could go into the city for a few hours to dine or see the sites.
  14. We always travel will prescriptions medications from our family doctor...Inhalers, antibiotics, and Medrol packs. He is a traveler like we are and, keeps us up to date on what drugs to take with us.This has saved us from going to the ships doctor more than once. We also take an assortment of over the counter meds for congestion and pain relief. And we have MedJet insurance, and trip insurance through our credit card. We now also travel with CoVid test kits.
