Hmm no mention of an on board credit from the Virtuoso agent you recommended .... will give her a nudgeThough we do get an on board credit by booking through a Virtuoso agent.And if mrsdrron doesn't spend it in the shop I get to enjoy a good bottle of red.
So we have had 20 cruises and I got my red once.
The only thing I have bought on board a ship to take off was a large tin of German Sausages! (We were on the car ferry between Malmo and Travemunde in the 1970's and all the locals were going mad buying food at, apparently, very cheap duty free prices. We couldn't resist buying the sausages for a laugh to eat at our next camp site in Germany. They were fine.)I think the only thing I’ve bought on a ship has been a watch and shot glasses. And a Cunard bear I think. Oh. And a bracelet that I lost when I left the ship. That was sad.
That indeed would be me - and FM was on Silver Cloud from memory (Silversea). I've been in contact with VPS. She has a hard choice.That would be both love_the_life and Flying Mermaid, just about 12 months ago. The former is currently very busy during office hours but she will be here shortly.
Okay, not too long to make a decision then, and it won’t be on the new ship.in four weeks to the Antarctic
Oops- sorry, I obviously misread the posts up thread as I thought SS was one of your options. I was on Silver Explorer to the Antarctica. I have sailed Seabourn on the classic (non expedition) cruises. I did compare Seabourn and SS when I was planning Antarctica and opted for SS due to the smaller ship size and positive past experiences. In addition as a solo traveler SS offered a better single supplement.Tossing up between HAL Seabourn and Ponant - Silverseas doesn't come into it - someone else has done one but it's not in the mix for me
