Thanks for a wealth of information on this subject. We have a holiday cruise on Oosterdam booked with our 90yo Mother. She does not own a scooter but we are thinking one on board would enhance her...

That's true. And the private car drivers (RomeCabs drivers speak pretty good English-much better than my Italian) and the private cars (with the magic permit disc) can seem to park right on top of...

For a bit more money a lot more Rome can be had. Stefano at RomeCabs can pick you up at the ship, get you to Rome as quick as possible, park right on top of the venues with the permits he has, show...

we have made 9:50 am twice. No problem. Your mileage may vary, to steal from Disney Jen.:cool:

The air in the North Atlantic is the freshest most of us are ever likely to breathe but modern ships are basically "sealed" systems. Look at the old liners and see all the air scoops for ventilating...

Thanks HH. I had missed that. Reminiscent of a similar event on QE2 that injured quite a few, caused damage to several areas of the ship, and made us arrive in Southampton a day late. Scary when...

Howdy Keith. Be nice to Richard. He knows best. I would rather eat "chicken feet" than haggis too...:cool:

Right you are. Seems like for most of us the "worst" involves something other than the onboard experience. Pretty good really. :cool:

A temp tattoo on the forehead that lasts the duration of a voyage might be more recognizable. Display your status proudly..........:eek:;p

You will run into lots of past passengers on just about any SD cruise but will find them easy to meet and get along with..........Well most of them..........Ok, I can be nice.:cool:

Generally speaking, it is a selected voyage where "Club Members" (past passengers) get a small discount. Sometimes a goody or two as well. Sail once and you too will be a Club Member.:cool:

Thanks Trap. We hope to sail with you guys again too. Maybe on one of those ole R-Ships. We have booked the Viking Sun which has around 900 in a 43,000 ton ship so we will see. They look good but...

I have to agree with you. Our personal limit is 2,000 passengers and that is too much. 600-900 is usually a good range when not on SeaDream. The one exception is Queen Mary 2. Max of 2,600...

Not necessarily Trap. There is lots to be said for the best suite on a large(r) ship for the same price. Besides, if they don't get on the stick with a new ship or refurb another ship, there will...

Winchester Ranger I have to agree with you completely concerning the length of a TA. We also would consider it regularly over the dreaded tin tube but just can't spend a week each way over a day...
