  1. Thank you everyone, I will use the ATMs. coincedently I was looking at The North Face yesterday at a mall and noticed they were made in vietnam. I thought I would wait and see if I might run into stores carrying the product there. Thank you so much, also thanks re the eye glasses info.
  2. We will be sailing from Hong Kong to Singapore in 2 weeks on the Muse. will it be possible to buy local currency on the ship? if not is it best to go to an ATM and get local currency? i would use my credit card for anything substantial but for trinkets we would need local cash. Correct me if I am wrong. We are in Hong Kong, Vietnam, Bangkok and Singapore. i am mainly concerned with Vietnam and Bangkok. thank you.
  3. Is it considered okay to ask your butler to steam press a dress? thank you in advance.
  4. WVSails, i would suggest calling Silversea directly and ask if your booking was made by a SS agent. Then you know for sure. The phone number is on their website. Silversea.com . Ends in 0912.
  5. Thank you. A half hour is definitely better than an hour.🎀
  6. Bobolz. To answer your question, yes we had a change when the flight was booked. We were suppose to fly Singapore to Hongkong on our return home to Canada after our cruise. However SingaporeAir cancelled that flight so we are flying Singapore to Beijing instead. Unfortunately the flight time is not as convenient as before. Previously our flight was at 1:05 p.m. Now our flight is at 8:45 a.m. We have to be at the airport 2 1/2 h before the flight so that is 6:15 a.m. it probably takes an hour to get to the airport so we have to leave the hotel at5:15 a.m. I am not a morning
  7. +1. Thank you for the terrific videos and info on the weather. Glad we picked a good month. Also thank you regarding info on the protests. We are on-board the Muse on nov 4 and depart nov. 5. I guess SS couldn’t reserve Ocean Terminal for those days so had to go to the old airport for docking. Thanks everyone for your excellent responses.
  8. I’m glad I asked. I thought we would be departing from a good location. i see I have to do my sightseeing while we are at the hotel. i think we will just enjoy the ship while in port. Thought we could walk around and explore but if it isn’t a good neighborhood won’t do that. thank you Les37b for looking it up for us.
  9. Not sure I was clear. we are in Hong Kong for 1 1/2 days before transfer to ship and then 2 days on the ship before departure from Hong Kong. we are doing the Hong Kong history museum and exploring while at hotel. I would like to go to a luxury mall either from the hotel or from the ships port. Anything interesting close to the port? thank you.
  10. Our cruise departs from Hong Kong. I am assuming that means Victoria Harbour. Since we are there for two days before departure could you please tell me what sights are very close by. we are at Kowloon Shangri-La for 1 1/2 days before transferring to ship. the reason I’m asking is because we are deciding what to explore while at the hotel and what to explore while on the ship. If the hotel and departure port are close by it wouldn’t matter what we do at hotel or port. We will be on the Muse in November. thanks in advance.
  11. We will be in the countryside around Hanoi on a private tour for one day on the Mekong River. Do we need a typhoid shot? We already have the others for short visits i.e. hepatitis A& B and DTAP. thank you in advance.
  12. I just found out that we will be needing a mosquito repellent containing DEET for our November cruise Hong Kong to Singapore ( for the Vietnam portion). can we buy this on the ship or shall I buy this ahead of time? i just read this on another post. Is there anything else I might need out of the ordinary? thank you.
  13. Hi Colgal, are you going on the November 4, 2019 cruise?
  14. Nowornever, you got a very good fare for business class from Tokyo to Seattle at $700 ish. SS wants $2500 Cdn. each way per person for business class for Vancouver to Hong Kong. With business class costing $10,000 extra we will be flying with the included Economy fare.
