What's your pleasure? Kayaking, swimming or the banana boats?
On every warm weather Seabourn cruise, there is a marina day. This is the day that they lower the platform at the back of the ship and passengers are able to swim, snorkel, kayak, sail, water-ski and take banana boat rides. It is the most casual day of the cruise as most folks are running around in swimsuits and cover-ups. As this is a distinctly older crowd, it is nice to see so many participating. More........

Room Service?
Which means anything on the Rotterdam's featured dinner menu will be brought to your room without extra charge. The key to ordering this way: You need to check the posted Rotterdam menu in advance and know precisely what items you want when you call in your order. More...

George Town, Penang, turns out to be a charming colonial city
Looking out our balcony door and the skies are heavy with a warm rain. We have been on this ship for 18 days and it has not rained, except once or twice at night. It is 5:30 p.m. and getting dark here in Malaysia and I feel cozy in our small suite that has been our home for so many lovely cruising days. More.....
