I agree Mark, we had no problems either, but were very careful. I would also take Imodium as a backup.

Apparently there is a specific local remedy for "Nile belly" that's recommended. I can't remember the details, but our TA recommended it as well. It's not something you can get here, apparently,...

Contrary to Pinotlover's comments, we had no problem getting our visa at Cairo Airport. Our Uniworld rep was right there, inside security, waiting for us. It took about 5 minutes and there was...

Hi, we're Wendy and David too, from Canada.

If you're talking about the Society Islands (Tahiti, Bora Bora, etc.), April can be muggy and hot. We've done late May several times and it was lovely.

Love these pix too, but perhaps new people with serious questions could post new threads? Please? I tend to not look at this thread, and interesting questions get buried in it, whilst the main...

My gut reaction is to say that, no, this priority boarding is a bad thing. Look at all the contention is caused over at Oceania a few years back. But it's such a small thing, and frankly, if I was...

Ours was in December and the seas we're good, very calm. But as they say, your experience may vary! Dry season in the Marquesas so not wretchedly hot, although it is hot in the Societies at that...

Portugal has some great wines from several different regions, including the Douro Valley. Not just ports. As someone else said, they are featured because Porto is where they're made, but I wouldn't...

There's never been a guest laundry on the PG, at least not in my experience and I first sailed her in 2000. They do take good care of most items that they launder for you. Of course, if you have...

Oh. I just reaiized that the PG doesn't anchor in the Bay of Virgins on Fatu Hiva any more. That's a shame. It's stunning, and shouldn't be missed if you can get there. What's the new anchorage...

Ah, good ole' Captain Dag--sounds like something he would do. Great captain, sorry to hear he left Seabourn. Still missed over at Regent.

Yes, I agree. I would not let mysef be held hostage in my room simply because people were congregated outside it. I would excuse myself and go on my way.
I agree. I've seen people come out of their...
I agree. I've seen people come out of their rooms and walk by smiling, saying they have an early reservation or some such excuse. It's not a serious thing, nor an obligatory thing, at least in my...

We have done block parties on Regent and Paul Gauguin. Kind of fun, a little awkward, yes. Even though they are promoted as "come as you are", no one has ever appeared in a bathrobe.

It does...

I vaguely remember that there was a shuttle bus on Hiva Oa for the house and gravesite. Perhaps someone else can comment.

Few independent tours, I believe. I think there's one operator on one...

Just reverting to being babies. You know, being rocked? :)

Hoping you love it. We did this itinerary last year. Your ports are quite different from ours, hope you enjoy them--we have done most of those ports on previous, shorter cruises. The Panama Canal...

I indeed hope you are right In fact I've met Seabourn folks on my Regent cruises and they've been very nice

For myself (not speaking for my husband, who does not own a tux, btw), I do not own a...

We were on the last segment of a Grand Voyage about ten years ago. It was Rome to Dubai to Capetown to Rio to Miami, I believe. We did Rio to Miami, and it made no difference Yes, we met some of...

Be realistic about what kind of cabin you want. I'm assuming not a top suite? If you've been used to larger suites on the mainstream lines, do some comparisons. The basic suites on all of the ships...

It was nice to see that the dock had been rebuilt after the cyclone a few years back. Last time it was a "wet landing".

You might try in the Destinations part of Cruise Critic. United States Home Ports/West Coast Departures perhaps?

I don't like the name at all. A spectacular lack of creativity.

Hmm, I'll have to look into this. Didn't know you could get it in Canada. It's always a pain for me making sure I have Bonine, since it *isn't* available in Canada any more.

(Okay, it's looking...
