Great news Ralph & June. We so enjoyed time spent with Chris and Lynette...obviously we are drawn to Kiwi's and looking forward to meeting more. I love their sense of humor. Sounds like a great group !

We’re dropping out too, so please remove us from the roll call.

We decided to book the circumnavigating Iceland cruise on the Cloud in August, 2019. Can’t do them all.

We loved our trip to The Falklands, South Georgia and Antarctica in 2007 - despite the German battles in the boot room... I’m sure the experience on the Cloud will be fabulous and we will be following your experiences closely.

Leslie, I am so sorry that you and Brad won’t be joining us for Antarctica, but SO excited that you are doing the Iceland trip. It is really going to be amazing, and George and the other guys are going to get into so much trouble. I can feel it already!

I'm out too. Early January is bad at the office, but I also found a great itinerary on Ponant Seychelles to Madagascar that visits the Comoros Islands in March. No single supplement either. I'm sure you will all have a wonderful time. Say hi to the Adelie penguins for me!

Airline tickets are obtained. Very few miles used for the outbound, but lots of miles used to come home as we need to be back home on the 20th. At any rate, it is set up and I am happy.

Same scenario with us Rachel. We are spending a night in Miami on the way down (annual visit to Regent completed so that worked out fine) and great miles. Coming back expensive but the nonstop and the other routes were the same points. So at least we got the nonstop home. YES we are happy to have our done as well. Those doing SIlversea air it wont open for a while yet.

We too are having to spend a night in Miami on the way down--but worth it to get such a good deal with the miles.

Hi, Kim,
Santiago is a pretty nice city as far as large cities in South America go, but not that much as far as specific sights. However, there is very nice wine country nearby. We have been there twice and did wine tours both times which were great.

Thanks, Rachel. I guess there's no need to be in a hurry to get there. But, not a bad idea to get there in time to relax and enjoy some time in the city and maybe even venture to wine country.

Best thing about Santiago is the king crab. Not much else going on there IMO. We did not make it to wine country but that sounds like the way to go. Wish we were joining you!

Just FYI POP2IT was a brilliant name that I thought was great. However, so many new people who have no idea what it means so I contacted Marc who came up with POP2it and he suggest this name instead. Sure would not want Marc to lose his virtual teapot!!

I think this is such a great name, seeing both Antarctica and Africa changes ones perspective. Nature is amazing.

So that is the new name and I will Karen to change it accordingly.

Is there a boot room on the Cloud? I didn't see it in June yet I can't imagine having to clean our boots in our cabin.

Yes, there is a boot room. We didn’t see it on our Cloud trip in May (or yours) since there weren’t any wet landings.

We are going on the circumnavigating Iceland trip on August 5th. We are taking our boots, although it’s not clear if there will be any wet landings. Will report in, as I’m sure will Rachel. Especially interested in the boot room and status of boots to borrow.

These are the automatic boot washes turned over. They lay flat and you walk through them I believe.

I also found out there are just 60 pair of boots on the Silver Cloud. So you really do need to rent or purchase boots when going to Antarctica or the Arctic. I loved that boot room so much more spacious and the racks are nicer too. Just well designed as well for traffic flow - one door in and one door out.

I agree so anxious to be on the Silver Cloud for Antarctica and see just how that boot room works. It seems SO large after the Explorer and just 75 more people. It is probably 3 to 4 times bigger than the Explorer boot room. Also what is nice is the larger waiting area to board the zodiacs. Definitely benefits (including bathtubs) to the Cloud. However, I am still looking forward to being on the Silver Explorer, Dunedin to Dunedin. An area I have always wanted to explore. Had so many good trips on the Explorer it does have a place in my heart.

I’m sorry to say I’ve had to remove myself from the Roll Call due to some continuing mobility problems just not suited to being on the passage to get there, and getting on and off Zodiacs. It’s a real disappointment as a I loved my ICE cruise so much years ago when Radisson chartered the Explorer Expedition ship. Fully intend to see some of you on Locks next March!

Have fun everyone, it’s an amazing trip!

As a few of you know June and I are in the process of cancelling this cruise also. Was a difficult decision as we both wanted to go but for a number of issues just not in the cards for us. Our friends in New Zealand the Howells are still booked along with a few other Kiwi's so I know you all will have a grand time.
