  1. 22 days to go until we embark in San Juan. Time is flying by and the excitement is building. At this moment, it appears that the vessel is still in drydock in Valletta.
  2. Cold and gray in South Florida. This is the third day in a row of overcast skies and the chill. 50F and damp. It is an extreme contrast; the tropical green foliage with the pervasive ash and lead colored clouds in the sky. Those clouds could possibly hold snow!!! My banana trees are producing lots of bananas and serve as a reminder we really are in a warmer clime. While we welcome some cooler temps, the absence of the sun makes us recall why we moved here in the first place. We need sunshine!!! Happy day all.
  3. It's not the laundry machines, it was the people doing the laundry that we heard. Perhaps an aberration but I would not want to repeat that experience. Just my preference.
  4. I would not want to be by the launderettes.
  5. Chef Gio is terrific, what a great guy. He is a shadow of his former self after losing a ton of weight to get healthy. Kire is also wonderful.
  6. Does anyone know if the Shadow is still in Valletta or is she on her way back to USA? Conflicting reports on the internet.
  7. Lois Sending good thoughts and positive energy to you. A scary experience on all levels for sure. Be well!
  8. Have a wonderful time! Let us know who the cruise director is. And please say hello to Giancarlo from Candy. He's an international host and just a terrific person.
  9. Will be aboard in December and report back. There are excursions listed on the mysilversea page with no charge. Hope those planning to be aboard will sign up for the m and m. And Yes There will be corporate suits aboard!
  10. Can you also make reservados for dinner that early?
  11. I think the Whisper looks great! Just completed the TA in October and she was lovely. I had not heard that there were plans to add any new restaurants. I would welcome an Arts cafe type of venue, but where would it be? Perhaps in the lobby area of the Whisper. As Observer says, the Shadow is going to have an Atrium on deck 5, in the space of the lobby. The Arts Cafe concept will be in that area. See the below promo language for the Shadow: "... new Atrium area on deck 5, a new social hub featuring an interactive guest reception area, boutiques and at its centerpiece, a Silver Muse inspired Arts Café".
  12. Have fun JP!!! One suitcase is great and a challenge I could never meet.
