  1. Lois, it sounds as though the sea was as rough for you as it was for us. I'm glad you enjoyed your trip though. I 'm sorry to be such a grouch, but we were very disappointed with our cruise. I refer to it as my "Kindle cruise." We were just surprised that there was really nothing to do on sea days--even on the planned ones. No enrichment or daytime entertainment at all. It was really too windy most of the time to sit outside. I won't list all the things that went wrong. It could not have been a typical Silversea cruise. However, I must say that we enjoyed the food and thought the service was very good.
  2. So, no one in all of Europe eats escargot anymore? It’s “old hat.” My husband and I enjoy it very much. We are always pleased to see it on the menu. I have to admit the preparation is not always our favorite. However, I have a feeling that we are too easy to please.
  3. Another example—friends reserved an excursion, received a card in room saying the group would leave at 11. When they went to the meeting place, they were told the excursion had left at 9!! Strange. We’re having a wonderful time in spite of the confusion.
  4. We made reservations 120 days out, but somehow they disappeared. Fortunately, my husband took a screenshot of the confirmation on My Silversea because I think they thought we didn’t actually do it. We didn’t get to eat at La Dame—it’s so tiny, they couldn’t squeeze us in. There is definitely a communications problem everywhere on the ship (Wind). Lots of different answers to the same questions! The captain has done a marvelous job keeping us from the dangerous weather (Caribbean). Hats off to him—literally!!
  5. Another question— how early can we board? Noon?
  6. I was disappointed on our cruise in August (Serenity) that affogato was not served in Prego. It’s my favorite dessert and I’ve always loved their presentation. I hope they bring it back!
  7. We have our first SILVERSEA cruise booked(January) and I got it.
  8. I suppose this is not the best time to say that we have signed up for our first Silversea cruise. It will be the first time we have sailed on another line in many years. It's a seven day cruise on the Wind from San Juan to Ft. Lauderdale. Lack of entertainment won't be a problem because we will be with special friends. Also, a lazy type getaway after Christmas is always a good thing. The real temptation was the deal we got---almost couldn't afford to stay at home! Know it won't be Crystal, but we will enjoy it!
  9. Actually, I asked a few days ago and they said they thought it was Saturday (last). Hope it happens!
  10. Still no word about the “Meet and Mingle.” Has anyone else heard a time mentioned?
  11. Looking forward to meeting you soon! Can’t wait to hear about your “pre-cruise “ cruise.
  12. We are on this one too. Memlin ( Bill and Linda)
  13. What a great trailer! So proud of Nancy too. It’s obvious she’s been in other productions. Looking forward to the Alaskan series!
  14. I’m assuming you have to get off the ship now. Not possible to stay on and enjoy Barcelona?
