I don't have experience with HAL but I'm aware of other lines that won't apply OBC to medical charges. Just so you're not surprised elsewhere.

If you're a door decorator, be aware that magnets don't stick to QM2 stateroom doors. We stuck our decorations on the adjacent wall in the passageway.

You'll find that many onboard book the trip every year - some do the full 26 days from Southampton (we can only manage the 12 days from New York).

This will be our sixth year.

When a ship is in port it can only be booked as a ship's shore excursion. On days that a ship is not in port it can be booked directly.

I think it was in Tortola this year, when the QM2 waited and waited and finally the dock runners arrived (maybe it was a ship's excursion; I don't recall). The bridge officer gave a toot-toot on the...

The Officer of the Deck is an officer (or possibly a very experienced Petty Officer) who is qualified to be the senior person on the bridge. Normally the CO has standing orders instructing the OOD to...

I have a corkscrew with a foil cutter (knife) that I took on a Holland America cruise a couple of weeks ago. Check the forbidden items list for your cruise line - it should permit knives of a certain...

Our Amsterdam trip to Alaska was our first oceanview cabin. Normally we book a balcony. With the cool weather we didn't miss the balcony at all. When we got to Victoria I realized that I had hardly...

I made final payment on a Cunard cruise this morning and my confirmation from Amex about the offer showed up immediately. I just paid enough on the Amex to qualify for the $100 and paid the rest on a...

Ah. The postcards.

Some lines have free drink cards for frequent guests. Some people enjoy hiding them in the room for the next passenger (such as in the Gideon Bible, maybe at Galatians 5:21...
