  1. Announcement re sailings to Alaska will be made on June 2nd( according to Social Media).
  2. Just wonder who would be in the market to buy?
  3. Maybe no B2B cruises will be allowed on initial sailings of 3/4 days ( from ports that you can drive to).
  4. I hope you have a refundable deposit for the Connie cruise, otherwise you will loose your deposit. You would loose it anyway if booked in the UK, unless you transferred it to the second cruise at a cost of £75 p.p.
  5. Excursions- visiting many new places in the world. However, going through my photos, I realise how incredibly lucky we have been, to have visited Australia, Canada, Caribbean, Europe, Hawaii, Russia, Singapore and the USA. I have memories.
  6. She was in Dry Dock in Marseille when we we’re there in May 2017, but I’m not sure how extensive the work was- was it a 5 year Maintence check only?
  7. In the UK, if you book cruise+ Air , it becomes a package holiday. This then includes transport to the ship and from the ship to the airport at the end of the cruise. If the return flight leaves late, a day hotel is also included. Because it is a package holiday, it is also ABTA & ATOL protected, which would be very useful at the moment, due to the cruise cancellations.
  8. What a shame we won’t be going on our August 1st cruise to celebrate. I remember being given a pin on the 20th Anniversary.
  9. Thank you for that Bonnie, I was just about to ask, when I saw that the phone wasn’t a UK one.
  10. Something has gone very wrong here——not even predictive text! ‘Have read’ becoming ‘average read’ !!!! Sorry, I usually re read my posts, but the Internet was playing up when I was looking for the picture attachment.
  11. I average read the Explorer of the Seas planned Dry Dock is on hold. However certain parts were very badly in need of a refurb, namely the window in Dizzy’s. As you can see, the window behind Dizzy’s left elbow is not giving a clear view. I was a shame, as we were unable to see through it when we were there for Happy Hour. Compare it to the windows behind his right elbow.
  12. 6214 1A on Eclipse, rear facing, so no wind. There is a full review in ‘S’ class cabins spread sheet.
  13. I think it means ‘Move by’ not sail by.
  14. Does that mean that they no longer sell iPads? I am due for another one and was hoping to buy on my August 1st cruise. For passengers from UK, we got a great deal, no 20% VAT and depending on the current exchange rate, we could make further savings. The iPad mini I am using now was bought on our 2015 Baltic cruise and the savings were so good, I could buy 128gb for slightly less than £390, which meant I didn’t exceed my customs allowance. Unfortunately, it is no longer updating to the latest 13,5 IOS.
  15. I would like the iLounge back. I read that they were taking it away on Silhouette. Did they actually make 4 new cabins and where can we now go for advice. I liked the iLectures, where I learnt a lot of IT at.
