Talked to the zodiac drivers last night and they said they are ready to go at Sewert . A 6’4” frame is no problem. 3 orcas sighted yesterday, a picture won’t upload .

All sounds very good and interesting.  Sorry that the picture won't upload. Any added background from the ship staff as to why things with the Internet are performing so poorly?   Keep plugging along and sharing.  

 

THANKS!  Enjoy!  Terry in Ohio

The weather is going to be tonight 🙂 Though at the noon announcement it was downgraded from “very rough seas” to just “rough seas”. It is 4:00 PM now and the swell is increasing

Last night, formal night, Alantitide dinner was sooooooo slow. Food was still either over or under cooked. Check your food when it arrives, is it hot,  warm or cool ?

Restaurant has been hot too. Chef Anna Marie has arrived, will see if food improves.

It has to improve with her onboard.  Her cooking leadership has always resulted in excellent meals in our book.

Will Anna Marie be onboard at the end of June? 

 

Excellent question by Daveywavey70!!  Will she be on board through the end of July for our Silver Muse sailing up from Vancouver to Steward?  Does she get off Aug. 1 or later?

 

THANKS!  Enjoy!  Terry in Ohio

In alantide, don’t cross the “Serbian Komidant” or you won’t get the table you want. You can recognize her by her bubbly personality and owl glasses. She is an import.

Great checking and follow-up.  Much appreciated!!  Look forward to finding out how long Anna will be there and/or who will replace here on the Silver Muse for late July, etc.  For Alantide, how long will the “Serbian Komidant” be in charge and "ruling"??!!

 

THANKS!  Enjoy!  Terry in Ohio

No cell service in Dutch  Harbour + very bad ship service.  Service here seems good (Homer) both cell & ship. Passengers advised to take umbrellas, possible showers but mostly many birds.

Appreciate your checking on Anne and this follow-up. Nice zodiac pictures and details!!  Those look like fun.   You are still on the Silver Muse all of the way until Vancouver, right?
