  1. We booked the 2023 Quest 79 day Grand Voyage as soon as it was listed, and are now especially glad we did. I'm sorry for all of you who had your 2021-2022 Quest trips cancelled. The Venture sounds lovely but I doubt we'll ever pay the price to sail on it.
  2. V2 on Sojourn was the forward area of deck 5, but it has changed in the newer V1-V4 plan. We've liked the forward section of deck 6, which now looks like it's V2 (used to be V3). We had 610 on the 2020 World Cruise on Sojourn, and loved it.
  3. Why do you think you won't get a survey? We've had several, although not this most recent survey.
  4. Yes, the options were listed in the emailed letter we received from Seabourn. Transfer to one of the Greek summer cruises, with any special promotions/perks, etc. protected; transfer to a "comparable" summer 2022 cruise (with a chart listing the cancelled cruise and what is considered to be the comparable cruises) at the 2021 pricing; transfer any of the amount you've already paid, up to the cruise base fare, at a 110% FCC to any other Seabourn voyage; or request a refund. There's a link to a form to fill out for your request, but I just called our cruise consultant and worked with her for rebooking. I think if we'd wanted a refund, I would have needed to do the form, as I did when the 2020 World Cruise was cut in half.
  5. I'm dreaming of a cruise someday again. Does anyone have a centrally located, favorite Lisbon hotel to recommend?
  6. You're not seeing what Sojourn had scheduled for July, August and September because those were the cancelled itineraries. They were available to purchase until a few days ago. Those itineraries were in northern Europe. We were scheduled to leave on September 25 from Amsterdam, heading down west coast of France, Portugal, to Med for some Spain, France and Italy before disembarking in Rome on October 16. This was the last cruise cancelled, although the last week of our cruise is now the first week available on Sojourn.
  7. We booked it as a 21 day, not a back to back. I know there are lots of segments of many cruises. Right now the October 9th sailing is the first listed for the Sojourn.
  8. I was having trouble making the website work yesterday, but did fine today. I just tried a mock booking for October 2022, and it seemed to be proceeding. Some people have said clearing your cookies helps, and the Seabourn site can definitely be quirky. Good luck! We just booked a cruise today for August 2022 on the Quest, using our personal cruise consultant.
  9. We just got the email that our September 25th 3 week Europe cruise on Sojourn was cancelled, and are now in the process of transferring that to the November Sojourn crossing. We were told that the only cabins available were deck 4 ocean view, V-6, and Owners Suite. We're holding a V-6, but were surprised at the cost. Hoping it will sail, but ready for a cancellation. We keep pushing money and credits from one cruise to another, and then again, and then again...
  10. Sadly, our September 25 Amsterdam to Rome cruise was cancelled. We were expecting it. Now looking at our options for rebooking.
  11. Seabourn does have formal nights, but you can always eat in the more informal Colonnade or Earth and Ocean if you don't want to dress up. Also, there's a real variety of levels of dressing up. You'll see some men in tuxes in the Restaurant or TK Grill on formal nights, but many men wear a suit or sports coat and tie. Some women have amazing gowns, and some dress in nice, but simpler dresses, or even dressy slacks with a sparkly top.
  12. We have two trips scheduled before then, too. My optimism keeps diminishing on whether they'll happen, but I'll keep dreaming. I hope your mother is able to stay healthy and safe on Whidbey. We were able to get our first covid vaccinations two weeks ago, and hope the second will happen on schedule.
  13. No, just laundry. We've never paid for dry cleaning so I haven't paid attention to prices. We had free dry cleaning for our last cruise, the 2020 World (or should I say the half-2020-World).
  14. We booked and did our deposit on this Grand Voyage on Friday, too! Our preferred suite booking is usually a V3 on deck 6, forward. Now that's a V1 category, and we were able to move slightly more midship with the new categories. We'll look forward to meeting you, cbachell!
  15. That's great to know! I'm celiac, and have appreciated the excellent job Seabourn does accommodating my diet, but I always figured the fried chicken was out of the question. Also, to clarify, the TK rib and fried chicken nights are held in the Colonnade, not in the TK Grill. You need reservations for the TK nights in the Colonnade, but they're easy to get if you make them when it's announced. Reservations for TK Grill are sometimes easy to get onboard, other times not so much, in my experience. You can stuff a lot of clothing into the $50 laundry bag, especially if you roll the clothes tightly!
