Meals & Lodging
The cost of on-shore meals and lodging are not covered in the price of this odyssey cruise. Reservations for lodging at the bed and breakfast inns should be placed only after consultation with your captain. Prevailing weather considerations and route planning may limit the viability of some reservations. The captain will give you recommendations for dining on shore.
This odyssey always starts early on a Wednesday morning and ends on the following Sunday late afternoon. It would be best for you to arrive in Oriental the day before and stay in one of the excellent bed and breakfast inns that are shown on the Oriental web page. You can visit the inn website to get contact information for your reservation. If you are traveling by air to New Bern Airport, the taxi ride takes about a half hour to Oriental. Dr. Kaye or Helen Kaye will pick you up from your bed and breakfast inn on the morning of your voyage..
Weather Safety Policy
Any responsible mariner knows that safety of passengers and vessel is the highest priority. All preferred routes and destinations will be evaluated for safety by the captain before departure. At his sole discretion, the captain may determine that a route or destination change may be warranted due to projected weather or sea conditions. There may be some days when the captain might even determine that the weather is projected to be too hazardous to leave port. This is the inherent uncertainty when traveling so close to nature.
If a preferred route is revised by the captain, your preference for an alternate route will be given high priority consideration.
