  1. We had SWTC on the first day of our two days in Mumbai, it was one of the best of the 12 or so SWTC we have done.
  2. I can’t agree with your statement “the prices have never been lower” In actual dollar terms we paid three times more per night for our May cruise than we paid 6 years ago, for the same level suite. Most of the current future prices are four to five times per night dearer than 6 years ago. What annoys me is that Seabourn then discounts the cruises drastically at the last minute to fill their ships with the “Interline” system. Why not offer a better than the 5% discount on some cruises to their loyal clients e.g say every 100 days sailed gives you an even larger discount rate.
  3. I’m a bit of weather nerd and always take a thermometer with me. The guest areas on all Seabourn ships (even on Quest in Antarctica) are kept at 21 to 22c (70 to 72 f) with the Lounge and MDR slightly cooler (for performer and waiter comfort.)
  4. House wines are available at the TK Grill.
  5. The white areas on Deck 5 below the suite numbers you mentioned are offices; 661 is above the Hotel Director’s and Cruise Director’s offices; I don’t think that you’ll be hearing any noise from them; nor from the Lifeboats being used as Tenders. (Are there a lot of Tender ports on your cruise ?) I would prefer that location to being forward in 622, 625 or 621 as 661 is about the pivot point of the ship, i.e. least motion.
  6. Chair Hogs should be Keelhauled, naked 🤔Perhaps too horrible to witness, maybe Keelhaul them dressed🙄
  7. Kimanjo, 35 C, that’s about 95f for the USA (about time USA changed, as we did in OZ 40+ years ago🙄😀🤣) I’m old enough to be fairly conversant in both🤔
  8. BUgrad: Hopefully you will be much safer in the land downunder👍😀
  9. That A$3,999 price was probably the “interline” price that us ordinary.mortals don’t have access to🤔🙄😡
  10. Strange, when we were in Antarctica on Quest in December 2014 the heaters were there. We ate outside ever day, my wife preferred it (even though she normally hates the cold) as she said the Champagne didn’t become warm.
  11. Years ago on a Seabourn cruise I looked at the BJ table from the doorway as I walked past. The unoccupied croupier came up to me and asked if I would like to play, I answered “No thanks, my daughter-in-law is a croupier at an Australian Casino, I know the odds” she smiled and walked away. Need I say any more🙄😀
  12. We have been to HK many times over the years. Friends who have lived there and who go back annually recommended Hotel Icon https://www.hotel-icon.com/?utm_source=google-local&utm_medium=organic last time we were there (for a Seabourn cruise). It was so wonderful that we looked forward to returning there after our HK to HK cruise via Japan, South Korea and China cruise on Sojourn. Book a Club Room as the evening “Drinks and Nibbles” meant we didn't need dinner, Also the Alcohol Drinks in the mini-bar were inclusive. Nice shopping Centre opposite..
  13. Why wouldn’t `you just order a drink from Room Service or your suite Bar/Fridge and sit on your Veranda, you can even go naked then if that’s your desire.
  14. I have a Referral Coupon available for a first timer, you can email me “SKP946 at gmail dot com” (change the “at” and the “dot” of course)
  15. Lizzie, if this is your first Seabourn cruise you can apply for a Referral Coupon (see top of Topic Listing page) It gives you a US$400 On Board Credit if you are eligible.
