I'll ask tonight, if any of the officers join us for cocktails. You sure you're not just trying to get them to look at me in a really odd way?
Kuki, the reason I ask is that the Seven Seas Mariner is not going to let passengers go ashore on Pitcairn Island. The reason stated is that the water is only one meter deep; too shallow for the tenders. The tenders on Silversea should be very similar, if not identical, to the ones on the Mariner. I would like to see if their draft is over one meter.

thanks for asking,
