  1. Thanks. It is nearly one year away, but decided to at least check as I've been doing my own flights and maybe could have saved money by going through HAL. The ability to wait until final payment to purchase the ticket, but to make sure I have a reservation, sound like a winner.
  2. Hoping to add to this thread. If I use Flight Ease for tickets, will I earn frequent flyer miles on the flight?
  3. No problem with tipping others. Just wondered how much on-board credit would be taken with the hotel service charge. It will help in deciding what tours we want to add as I think we may end up with quite a bit of OBC. Thanks.
  4. We are considering an Alaska land/cruise tour for 2020. We will only be on the ship four days. Will we be charged the $14.50 daily service charge per person on the land portion of the trip?
  5. Thanks for the help. Used another browser and was able to print the tags.
  6. Oceanmom, yes we're on the rotterdam.
  7. The last time we cruised, I was able to print luggage tags, complete with cabin number, from the HAL site. Somehow I cannot find that now. We are leaving Wednesday morning for a cruise that ultimately leaves Sunday from Amsterdam. Can anyone tell me what I am overlooking when I look at the HAL site? I would like to print the tags rather than just write the information on a card. Thanks.
  8. Is the extra size of the verandah worth it considering the extra wind because no cabin is blocking the wind while sailing? It's been years since we had one, and in looking at notes I took, it seemed that at times it was too cool to sit on the verandah while sailing due to the wind. Any comments? We may try for one again but would appreciate any information.
  9. Ine, is there an English translation for either of those sites? Unfortunately I do not understand Dutch. Thanks
  10. Thanks for your help. I also discovered airportstaxitransfers.com. It looks good, have you heard anything about it?
  11. We will be arriving at Schiphol August 1 around 3:30 p.m. (1530). We are interested in a taxi to take us to our hotel. Does anyone have a recommendation on which taxi service to take? We were there two years ago and waited over an hour for a pickup on a transfer service which accommodated persons going to many different hotels. This time there are three of us and we are interested in a taxi for just us.
  12. In February 2018 we booked the Prinsendam trip for a cruise around the British Isle, having lots of port calls in Ireland. Several months later we were informed that the Prinsendam would not be in their fleet for our August 4 cruise. Instead, we are on the Rotterdam, and since it is a larger ship, the only port in Ireland is Dublin. Quite a disappointment, but nothing we can do about it now. Don't know if we would have booked that far in advance had we known we would not get the cruise we wanted--not the ship and not the itinerary. But, we plan to enjoy it anyway. Ironically, we specifically wanted that cruise in August as my husband has always wanted to attend the Edinburgh tattoo. However, in the last year his hearing has decreased so much that wearing hearing aids and loud music just doesn't go together. So while we will be in Edinburgh for the tattoo, we will not be attending it.
  13. Not quite sure how to use it. When follow your link, it shows Holland America Line, but then when I try to input a specific food item, it just give many, many choices and I can't seem to find the link to Holland America. Use HAL gave me nothing. What am I doing incorrectly?
  14. Thanks, I will call passenger services in advance and also talk to the head waiter the first day as i want to be able to plan breakfast and lunch. I will not require special preparation, but I will have to be selective in what I eat.
  15. I am a new diabetic and learning to plan my food intake, usually based on the evening meal. Is it possible to get the menu in advance so that I can plan the other meals to accommodate wanting a "nice" evening meal?
