I may have missed it before, but the itinerary for our cruise on the Silversea website now shows the included excursions for each port. Birdwatchers should be in heaven. thumbsup

Has something changed? All "excursions" have always been included on Expedition cruises. Are they only offering a few included excursions and charging for others?
Edit: I looked on the website and only see "included" excursions, none that have pricing. So, I guess nothing has changed.
Dave - Looking forward to seeing you and Joan. It's been a long time since we have cruised together.

Would appear that what has changed is that there are now choices. Some hard hikes but then some easy excursions for us older folks. I would guess it is because of the type of expedition cruise this is compared to something like Antarctica.

Kim, Joan and I were very happy to see that you and Alice are also on this cruise. Too bad it’s so far in advance. Are you and Alice planning to attend BOOTS next year?

Ralph, we are also looking forward to seeing you and June again. I think your assessment of included excursions is correct. It looks like there will be a nice assortment of excursions from which to choose.

Paid in full. Can’t come soon enough. Our first Silver Sea cruise was on the Cloud before they made it an expedition ship. I personally like it much better now. Probably my favorite expedition ship at this point.

We're paid in full, too! We love the Cloud, too! We've been on a couple of other Silversea ships, but Alice calls the Cloud her "home away from home". Like when you feel really at home in a place.

Dave,

Regarding hotels: not that we have a ton of experience, but last August we stayed at the Canopy by Hilton. It was nice, centrally located, and comfortable, if not particularly fancy. I would stay there again if the rates were reasonable. Good breakfast and a nice happy hour bar. It is the hotel for United Airlines flight crews.

Another vote for the Canopy by Hilton in Reykjavik. Location is perfect and our room was really quirky and cute.

Wish we were on this cruise, but we had Regent FCC that has to be used by end of 2022, so had to book a Regent cruise for end of September and can't be gone from the office long enough for both.

Thought we had hotel included one night before and one after? Or is that only if we book SS air?

We are still going! I don't remember ever picking shore excursions for any of our other Silversea expedition cruises. Maybe I've just forgotten or maybe this cruise is different. We are doing Silversea air (from LAX) to arrive in Reykjavik on the 14th. But I don't know what hotel they will put us in.

Kim I don't think we have ever picked excursions on any expedition cruise. If there were choices you just showed up for the one you wanted to do. But really for this one the choices are pretty much do you want to hike uphill or a stroll down hill and do you want to kayak or Zodiac wonder

My invoice shows the hotel one night before and one night after. We do have SS air. So, maybe those nights are part of the SS air.

Helen you have a pre night in Reykjavik and a post night in Dublin. Look at your invoice and you will see it listed. Everyone gets those nights with or with out air.

Thanks all for the hotel recommendation in Reykjavík. I forgot about the included pre and post cruise hotel nights. I’ll just talk to Susan about staying at the Silversea hotel on the 13th as well as the 14th.

We got an email asking us to complete our Guest Info documents on line. While poking around on the my.silversea.com website, I noticed we have flights! There are displayed in the "Details" tab.

Sadly, Joan and I have had to cancel this cruise. Please remove us from the roll call. Two and a half weeks ago, we were in Death Valley. Joan took a hard fall and broke her hip. Luckily it was a clean break and could be repaired surgically without the necessity of a hip replacement. She is recovering well but we thought an expedition cruise in August might be too much for her. Joan has been cleared for a regular cruise so we will be taking both segments of TROLLS in June and July. Hope to see some of you on those cruises.

I'm so sorry to hear about Joan's broken hip. We're wishing her a speedy recovery from her surgery.

Thanks Helen. The doctor told Joan that her recovery was ahead of the curve. She’s coming home tomorrow after two weeks in rehab. We will see you and Jerry in Lisbon in November.
