  1. swingdancefan, thanks so much for the review. I was wondering if you noticed any special events on board featuring local seafood, etc?
  2. Anyone know of any all inclusive day passes that can be reserved in advance. We are coming into Falmouth and would prefer adults only
  3. trips_ahoy, I am considering this tour. What month did you go? Thanks again Hoyaheel
  4. Ok, thanks. So it sounds like they still had some availability on board and not all were booked ahead of the cruise. Did you find this to be true for other excursions?
  5. We have been to Alaska several times on cruises and independently. We normally do shore excursions on our own (our favorite has been a helicopter and sled dog tour out of Juneau) but Seabourn seems to have some interesting options. I am considering booking the Alaska 14 day cruise and would really like info on excursions for this particular cruise. Which ones are must do? Which is the best place to go kayaking vs zodiac vs catamaran? Would love to see some prices as it is quite difficult to find info about that. Any info is appreciated.
  6. It always surprises me how quickly a thread can be turned into a "formal wear" thread. I (the OP) do like to dress up on occasion and usually overdress for many occasions. However, I don't want to be forced to dress up every night on the ship (formal nights ok) and don't want to be told how to dress on the rest of the ship (Such as Regent having a dress code for the entire ship after 6 pm). In places such as Alaska I expect to have a much less formal dress code. So in other words, I want to be the one to decide based on my day what I will wear. It is my cruise after all. I can't fathom how my attire at a bar would degrade another persons experience. Could we also talk about service, food, special events, etc? Please?
  7. We were on Equinox in July. Wanted to try the burger and flatbreads at the Gastro bar, however never saw anyone eating anything and it did not seem set up well to have food. They did confirm that they served food but we never saw a menu.
  8. Our favorite specialty restaurant. Salad bar, pizza, grilled meats, and don't forget the chocolate chip cookie (I know it sounds plain but it is really not a cookie, its fantastic). You can order all you want. I suggest surf and turf. I know someone above said that it can be windy but we have never found that to be the case as they have roll down windows for that. Also they will hand out blankets if it is chilly.
  9. Sounds like O is a little better food wise. I have seen numerous posts that the food has deteriorated on O and did not want to book with O and be disappointed. Our experience on Celebrity in suite class has been great for food and service. When we were not in suites we would usually only eat in specialty venues which are also really good. While we love Celebrity we are ready to have a change once in a while. I would hate to book something more expensive in a smaller room and have the food and service not exceed our Celebrity experience. Thanks to all for the info.
