Jul 3rd - Happily on board Ovation


Recommended Posts

Great cocktail that one.Its served exclusively in the TK restaurant . I believe it was blended exclusively for Seabourn several years ago,along with several others that can be ordered at all the other venues.Thanks for the posts they are very welcomed in these difficult times,enjoy your cruise.

This is all so helpful.   Would you mind answering a question re:  Santorini port?   When was the last tender back to the ship?   We'd like to have dinner on shore but not at the expense of having to swim to the next port of call.

Tenders run through boat departure, All aboard is 10:30pm. Last cable car is 10:40pm.  So, plenty of time for dinner through a sunset. 🙂

Is there anyone on this Board from the UK who can answer a few question for me please. We will, hopefully be on board on the 18th September and wonder whether we need a PCR test to leave Heathrow.  What was the procedure at Athens Airport and also the Terminal before boarding.Is testing happening regularly on board and do you get a test before disembarking which is acceptable to the UK. All we know at the moment is that  we need a PLF for the Greek Government to be completed the day before we go. Any advice would be greatly appreciated - thanks in advance.

Correction: last cable car down was 10pm… a potentially important difference!

PCR or antigen test is required at airports only if you are not vaccinated. If you are vaccinated just fill up the PLF and present proof of vaccination.

The cruise company most likely will rapid test you before boarding, take care!

Test required even if you are vaccinated *upon return*. See official regulations:

Thank you so much for the info you provided, you have put our minds zt rest - at least for the moment until the government change their mind!!! We are both fully vaccinated so hopefully travelling should be a lot easier.  Many thanks once again.

The old Cuban ! My wife’s favorite, especially when prepared on the Ovation by Miguel. Speaking of which, are there many crew members from pre pandemic?

A lot!

Great news. We've been concerned for the crew members through this past year, and so good to hear many have returned.

Thank you fudgbug. I was hoping that Jennifer was back. We sailed with her on both the Encore and Ovation. She was a nice young lady.

There is only one other cruiser posting on the Ovation board for October 23, 2021 cruise from Barcelona to Lisbon. Are there others who are sailing on that cruise but are using the Sojourn board for now? We are on that sailing and were hoping to connect with some others who are booked on it. Very hopeful that it sails!
