  1. Check out the AT&T International Day Pass. It’s $10 per 24 hrs , only if you use the phone. Otherwise you are not charged. $5 for each additional line. You would still be using your data package. The Boss has used it in the past, but I keep my phone off😊
  2. It’s not surprising that the number of passengers on the ship is only 201. Most of the frequent posters have indicated that they are not booking until 2022. That’s a very small sample but would be indicative of total cruise market. We’re taking the plunge on the Shadow, Athen to Athens in September and very much looking forward to it.
  3. We also had a voyage canceled due to a charter. Silversea offered an additional discount if we rebooked another cruise. We weren’t charged an administrative fee and we were disappointed, but felt like we were treated fairly.
  4. https://news.yahoo.com/greeks-holiday-cancellations-pouring-country-154711280.html not good news!
  5. We used Jorge’s company in 2013 based on the recommendations here. He had another tour guide take us out for the day as he had some family health issues. He was excellent. Can’t recommend highly enough.
  6. Saw this yesterday. As an American, I am not surprised at all. https://news.yahoo.com/obesity-driving-factor-covid-19-145033591.html

In April and May, the CDC and other medical professionals said it would be late 2021 or early 2022 before vaccines would be available. One week after the US Elections that changed. Now we are faced with the same crew handling the distribution; what could go wrong!? The expectation is that will improve dramatically in the coming weeks. As for booking a Cruise now, it's all about the the risk. I don't blame
  9. We booked the Black Sea portion of the Grand Voyage, September 20, 2021 last October. At one point, the website showed all categories wait listed with the exception of vistas. But now, that seems to have changed.
  10. Old joke. There have been several iterations over the years. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  11. We are on the May 4th, Muse - Yokohama to Vancouver voyage. So far there have been no changes to the itinerary. The previous voyage from Singapore makes 3 Japanese ports before docking in Yokohama. With all the precautions Japanese Officials are taking in regards of the Olympics, it would seem unlikely that they would let any ship dock in their territory. Since we were well within the 120 cancellation period when the Corona Virus broke, we will have to wait and see how Silversea reacts to the environment going forward. Fortunately, we booked our air and hotel through SS, so they will ha
