  1. Seabourn is also blocking my VPN, even when my VPN is using a server from my home country. I have to turn off the VPN in order to access the Seabourn website. For those that do not know what a VPN is used for, here is a brief summary. For more info, just Google “VPN benefits” What Is a VPN, and How Does It Work? When you switch it on, a VPN creates an encrypted tunnel between you and a remote server operated by a VPN service. All your internet traffic is routed through this tunnel, so your data is secure from prying eyes along the way. Because your traffic is exiti
  2. The Government of Canada just recommended this morning to avoid all non-essential travel and banned all cruise ships over 500 people (includes passengers and crew until July). The Health Minister just said all travel outside of Canada is considered high risk. The Prime Minister’s wife tested positive for Covid after attending an event in London and the PM and family are now in self isolation for 14 days. We had an international land trip booked to leave at 9am tomorrow, which I just cancelled. We were afraid of not being able to return home, even if we were healthy. Luckily the airline ga
  3. Thanks for posting the video of this suite type. This is very helpful. I would not be unhappy in this suite as it only looks marginally smaller due to the removal of the tub. It is definitely not 60 sf smaller as the reviewer had posted. Perhaps the anchor noise is a bit of an issue, but I don’t see why this suite would be a problem as a minimum guarantee suite.
  4. The V1 suites on Ovation/Encore are different than on the other 3 ships. They are smaller. I have not stayed in one of these suites and agree there is limited information available. The only information I have seen is a CC member review (dated Feb/19) of suite 707 on Encore (same as 706 on Ovation). This reviewer was very unhappy with this suite and states the suite is 60sf smaller than a regular V. So if you are brave go ahead and read that review (it is very negative). Consider switching suites (may not be possible), but I would call your TA and try. Otherwise enjoy your cruise and realize t
  5. Regarding Montreal traffic....I don't live there but travel occasionally for business. Construction has been a total disaster for the last 12 months or more, and it will probably go on for another year.They have done a mass demolition of the major highway (including bridges/overpasses) between the airport and downtown Montreal. If you are travelling at peak times then leave extra time for travel. If off peak (mid day/early afternoon) then you are fine. I would not recommend Uber as the construction and detours have confused them (or their route technology), the local taxi drivers are experienc
  6. This sounds more like my experience on Silversea, not Seabourn. On SB, the officers are usually present and greet you personally upon embarkation and disembarkation. The CDs are always visible. On SS, the CD would not even acknowledge us, was mainly invisible except for introducing the evening show and stood around in his casual dress (jeans) on disembarkation day ignoring departing guests (it was only the sommelier who was standing alone at the bottom of the gangway to say goodbye....she looked like a lost sheep all by herself).
  7. Luggage storage is available at the cruise terminal: BAGGAGE CHECK SERVICE Inside Terminal 1 Open from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Cruise passengers $5 CDN / luggage http://www.port-montreal.com/en/access-to-berths.html (click the "map and information" link)
