Larry

Silversea never did provide useful and requested details of the Peru pre-cruise excursion, but it did turn out well. The only exception was that they failed to include us on the list for airport transfers to and from the day hotel in Guayaquil and said we had not paid for these transfers or the day room - which we had.
