  1. SWFLAOK...great feedback/insight/advice...Yes, Sea Dream in the Caribbean is really great...love that Ponant bought PG..such a great ship and Tahiti is amazing right? We're excited to try Silversea...
  2. Stumblefoot thank you! We're excited to try this line. 20 plus years on Windstar...Sea Dream and Ponant so eager to experience Silversea..The Silver Suite was pricey but Deck 7 looks good. We're doing August Barcelona to Monte Carlo..most ports we know. Wish it were tomorrow. Cheers!
  3. We booked our first Silversea for August. Clueless on many topics but curious what regulars think of cabin choices. We opted for Silver Suite for the size. Anybody know details on cabins and ship in general? Do we have to book dinners in advance for the French and Italian restaurants? Thanks all!
  4. We did 12/28...you'll love it. The Cozumel thing is a disappointment but they have it all worked out. You meet at the Hyatt in Playa del Carmen and they have a chartered ferry to take you to Cozumel...all described in the communication from Ponant. Missing the reef snorkel is a shame but we really loved Le Champlain..the food..crew etc. We only speak a bit of French but it was GLORIOUS! Enjoy....the Mayan ruins are fascinating.
  5. Dev D.....The snorkel trip doesn't interfere! You'll join the others on the beach on Jost. Have a ball! Also if you're a hiker there's a great one on Montserrat....not difficult...

    New Port

    Hi st.zoomer...we're going right after you on 12/28...I spoke with Ponant myself yesterday and was told every cruise thus far has changed to Cozumel so I'm thinking ours (yours) probably will too. I'm hoping they reach out with good advance so we know where to show up and when. We have one night precruise at hotel in Puerto Morelos...yikes..

    New Port

    Great info all! I guess it's hurry up and wait. We have a hotel in Puerto Morelos the night before our 12/28 embarkation. Would be silly to change now I guess since things are still up in the air...Que sera I guess. Good luck!

    New Port

    Thanks for this,. We depart Dec. 28 on same cruise. Last week our Amex TA contacted them and was told they're still using Puerto Morelos. Very confusing. And of course it affects our hotel the night before. Ugh. Any info is appreciated!
  10. Wow! We we were just at a SD party in LA for past cruisers and all the talk was about Innovation. We were ready to book 2021 to Antarctica! Big flashy mailings, catalogues, etc. Sort of disappointed as it looked to be a FANTASTIC ship....
  11. For folks going on Le Champlain in the Yucatan Mexico anytime soon (we're booked Dec. 28)...our travel agent reached out to Ponant and they said it was only that first cruise that was denied port in Puerto Morelos..apparently all subsequent cruises (they say) will go as posted. Let's hope! ⛵

    Le Ponant

    What a great cruise around Corsica! We've just returned from one of the last on this beautiful ship before the retrofit. Our first time with Ponant and we were the only American couple. And how many cruise ships do you know of where the captain (Jean David) takes a swim with the passengers?! Pic attached. We are hooked...and this is after many Windstar and Sea Dream cruises.
  13. Wendai....hi again. This question just popped up. Is there laundry onboard? We love not having to take a ton of stuff. Thanks again!
  14. Hey there! We're booked on this Dec. 28 and very excited! Yes an interesting itinerary. A great area of the Yucatan I think. Port looks to be pretty close to Cancun. Half-hour drive. We'll get there the night before. If anyone's done this cruise let's hear about it!
  15. Thank you Wendai! We are SO looking forward to it....
