Jim,

 

Who previously held that position and do you know whether he/she is still with SeaDream?

Can't recall the name right now but he is supposed to have retired.

Suddesh took Tom Carlson’s job (who did retire) but will be working from India and not moving to Oslo. Remi left to work on a private yacht :-((

No idea who will be captain on the TA. Also, Terje has a new baby with wife/girlfriend #3!

I have a little birdie as well! :-)

We wish Remi well. Working on a large private yacht sounds good but having been in the boat biz for a lot of years in Florida I can attest it is not as easy as it looks. Owners can be quite demanding there too. A person has to do what they want. Myself, I could be the poster child for questionable decisions......:eek:

Wow. Quite the newsy 3 sentences :)! Thanks. I thought it might be Tom who had retired. He was/is a class act. A great ambassador for SeaDream who will be missed.

Wow, after months "idle" the thread and news is ALIVE. Love the updates from the little birdies. We will be finishing dinner and heading to the TOY in exactly 2 weeks on SD1. Can't wait.

Cheers

As is Mrs. Tiki! Does anyone know which Captain is on SDI for the Caribbean season?

A reasonably coherent source says Captain Smorowski alternating with Captain Lund.

We were on SD2 recently and after Captain Remi and family disembarked in his home town of Malaga during our voyage we later learned as we continued on to Lisbon with Captain Steinar that Captain Remi was no longer with SD. Not sure of the circumstances.

It could just be as simple as time to move on. Working at sea is a tough job, especially for someone with a family. And I remember speaking with Captain Remi in Costa Rica shortly after his arrival at SD. He was doing a great job driving a ship with one engine and we compared notes on working at sea. He came to SD basically because he was tired of running the same routes over and over with Paul Gauguin. Hard to imagine getting tired of working in French Polynesia and we loved the ship Paul Gauguin but as a former seafarer, I get it. We wish him the best at whatever he does.

Which forum is the biggest on CC ?

And how many replies do you think the biggest posting would have ?

As many as "........idle jottings" ?

No, not even half as many.

 

Surprised ?

Hum is !

You can catch Jim's reports from the Viking Sun world cruise on the Viking board. He is doing a wonderful review of this new ship and its itinerary.

As I possess a curious mind and have idle hands full of martinis, I want to pose a question to all SeaDreamers. Having just recently left Bali, I simply must know why SeaDream calls its Bali Beds "Bali Beds"? Didn't see a single "Bali Bed" in actual Bali....... Curious minds, etc...:cool:

To quote:

A Bali bed is an outdoor daybed for two on a platform with a mattress. It can be as simple as a double chaise or as elaborate as a richly upholstered pleasure dome on a beach with a natural wooden frame around it. Curtains, which can be drawn for privacy, surround the bed. Unlike a palapa, a Bali bed offers little or no protection from overhead sun.

The name Bali bed originally comes from the wood culled in Bali and Java to make the beds.

Today these beds are made from a variety of natural materials, including bamboo.

Beach resorts throughout the world that cater to couples may offer a Bali bed on the beach, where you can sunbathe during the day and even sleep under the stars at night. Depending on the resort, there may be a fee to reserve and hold a Bali bed, or its use may be included in the rate.

Thanks Shaskelly. I knew some smart SeaDreamer would know. Come to think of it we saw lots of wood carvers, furniture makers, and lumber mills in both Bali and Java. "Bali Bed" sounds nicer than "Java Bed" too. Now I can sleep again knowing the facts..:cool:

That's the same definition I found for bali beds -- will be on one in just a couple of days!

Jim, still enjoying your trip reports on the Viking site -- bored yet?

Hotel Manager of SDI Nichola died suddenly onboard early last night (apparently in his sleep).

Our thoughts go to his young wife, newly born child, family, friends and crew of both vessels.

Nichola was very recently promoted from the position of maitre d’ on SDII.

So tragic and sad. A wonderful man who always had a smile and kind word for everybody. He will be missed and not forgotten.

What horrible news. He was so young; it's difficult to believe. I was just communicating with him on Facebook last week, and we were looking forward to seeing him this summer. Our condolences to his wife, son, brother and the rest of his family.

Profoundly sad. He had just gotten his certificate from Cornell and been promoted to HM — not to mention his land family. Heart goes out to all the SD family (past and present) as well. We had just seen him in March. Thanks for letting us know, Hum.

Like many of you here, we are devastated by such incredibly sad news. We were just on SD2 last month and missed him by a few days since he had gone home following the birth of their first child. We exchanged emails while we were onboard and he spoke of being overjoyed with the newborn even mentioning his first diaper change. I hope all of us who knew and loved him can find a way to help out his young family at such a tragic time. As many also know, his brother works for SeaDream too.

Tomislav (Nichola’s brother) actually left the company a little while ago.

Thanks for the updated information on his brother as we were not aware he had recently left SeaDream.

This is just so sad ... we have fond memories of his big smile. What an awful thing for his family and for the SeaDream team. :(

Colleen and I are deeply saddened by this news. Nikola was a tremendous asset of SeaDream, a gentleman and a genuinely nice and talented man. Oft times he would say to us at disembarkation that this might be his final contract but to our good fortune, there he would be at the top of the gangway to greet us again. Our thoughts and prayers go to his wife, baby, brother and his SeaDream family. He will be dearly missed.

So sad to hear. He was a superb example of everything that SeaDream wanted. Our thoughts go out to his family, especially to his new wife and child.

Does anyone have any info on what happened? Nichola was always such a joy and full of life. We missed him when he went to SDII , but learned to love Tomaslav as well. So sorry for his wife and baby.

Heartbreakingly sad. I have family members onboard and early on in the voyage they were texting how wonderful Nichola was treating them and how happy he was with his new position and new son. Life can change in the blink of an eye. Be kind, don't hold grudges and live life to the fullest. Rest in peace Nichola.

We should start a new subject here in his memory instead of idol jottings
