    Silversea personal training costs

    You will probably need to phone the Silverseas Sydney office for this one. Or your TA who booked your cruise. Which cruise are you on ? SYD to AKL on 2/2 or AKL to Bali on 17/2 ?
  2. If you want to tip please consider the Crew Welfare Fund - then everyone benefits. You put your amount in a sealed envelope with CREW WELFARE FUND on it, and give it to reception . You will get a thank you letter from the crew member who is in charge of it.

    We also donate to the crew fund. And we always get a thank you letter and many personal thanks from the crew as well. But I also tip our butler and room attendant at the end of the cruise, - people who make my bed and bring me morning coffee are precious to me

    Laundry Service - Silver Spirit

    Laundry is included when you stay in a Silver Suite. So put your laundry in the bag with the list and put it outside your door when you go to bed each night and your butler returns it later afternoon the next day. Hanging items are place directly into your wardrobe and folded items are place on the bed. If you forget to place it outside on retiring you can do it before going to breakfast - but I would call the butler so he knows to pick it up. If you are going to do regular laundry I would tell the butler this when you board, so he knows what to expect. You can do laundry every day of your cruise if you need to. I havent ever used the SS drycleaning, so I am no help there !
  5. Thanks les37b and tsavorite !! Very helpful info. We are really looking forward to this cruise
  6. We are on the May 16 Tower Bridge - British Isles Cruise on the Wind. It departs at midnight on the 17th - how long does it take to sail down the Thames ?

    Scenic Eclipse

    Thanks Towel Animal for that. We have just been through Silverseas cancelling our 33 day cruise from Honolulu to Easter Island, so I am now watching what is happening to Scenic more closely !!!!!

    Scenic Eclipse

    We are booked on the August 2019 Reykjavik to Canada cruise. I have just been on the Australian Scenic website - and it is hopeless to navigate ! - is there a list of all cruises by date - if so I cant find it !! The first cruise I have found for 2019 is 25 May Dublin to Bergen. Obviously Glenn Moroney has a lot of problems on this hands, but not telling us what is going on is not doing the company any good either. I will be contacting our agent ASAP to see what she can find out.

    Dress Code

    My husband wears on formal night, dark trousers, a dress shirt and bow tie, and a pink jacket, everyone thinks he looks spiffy !! Thats what he will be wearing on the Muse in February. I usually take two formal long skirts and matching tops. We like formal nights so we dress accordingly.
