  1. Can't answer any of your questions, Tiki, but I want to wish you both Bon Voyage. We will be on SDII in January.
  2. I think that you might have opted for electronic documents rather than mailed documents. There was a time period some years ago, when SD first began offering docs electronically, when there was a small cash incentive to go electronic, and for a period of time we did that. When that incentive disappeared, we switched back to mailed documents. You can do that on your next SD cruise. In the meantime, what you have received is quite sufficient to get you onboard, and that's what it is all about anyway. Bon voyage, and have a wonderful time!
  3. I understand exactly how you feel, Sandy. In summer of 2018 we did a European voyage where almost all of the excursions were cancelled for lack of participation. Last month on our Greece/Italy voyage all the excursions went. It all has to do with the passenger mix and it is all in the luck of the draw. But in our 15+ years of sailing SD, with over 20 voyages, this is what I have learned. SD is a small ship. If seas are rough it has happened that SD has had to change a port, or even cancel one and go on to the next one. If you have private excursions planned and this happens, it is quite a hassle. For that reason, we now only plan private excursions in ports of embarcation or debarcation - SD never misses those. One alternative - there have been times when excursions have been cancelled and we have been able to make private arrangements last minute through the concierge. I hope you have a wonderful trip. We have done that itinerary and it is wonderful.
  4. Thanks, Lois & Jim. We're really looking forward to the Corinth Canal.
  5. I think it certainly could mean something. Leaving for Cuba from PR is embarking from the US. Leaving from St. Martin is not. We have been told by friends who are doing a Cuba cruise later this month that their cruise will be the last one that cruise line does to Cuba because the US is making it too tough.I can't remember the cruise line, but I know it is leaving from Miami.
  6. I think you should be receiving them at any time now. It's generally been about three weeks, but it has varied. Bon voyage, Piaa.
  7. Thanks for the post, Vandrefalk. 34 on board sounds fabulous - I can't even imagine.
  8. Enjoy, Vandrefalk. Glad to hear that you have connectivity to post. We were pleased to discover while in Cuba that the internet on the ship was quite good. A marked difference from previous voyages.
  9. I would like that, too, Vandrefalk, but a crossing is never going to be in our future. We took the repositioning cruise prior to Cuba, which was like a crossing in the sense of many sea days. We've always loved sea days, but apparently Trapper can take only so many of them.
  10. If it is new itineraries, bring them on!
  11. He never has any because I steal them all.
  12. I sympathize. We had that experience in Italy last August. I don't think that there were any large groups on the voyage, but for whatever reason, most passengers did not do excursions. We were extremely disappointed. And it was just the luck of the draw, because on the voyage prior to ours with the same itinerary, all the excursions went. You do not mention the impact on your enjoyment of the voyage of having half the passengers in one group. This kind of soft charter can turn into an unpleasant experience, having nothing to do with the excursions. I hope it worked out OK for you.
