  1. Thanks for the input. Yes I know they have portholes. Full window was an increase in price and there were not really any great locations available anyway/
  2. About to book the 10 day holiday Cuba cruise on Veendam. Trying to select an oceanview room. We do not like rooms on the promenade deck so our options are limited to A and Main deck. Considering G515/516 or G702/707 all at the front of the ship. The 515/516 rooms look a little smaller than most but are on a floor sandwiched between rooms and 702/707 look larger but are on a lower deck and obviously closer to engines etc. So really torn here. Also seen some negative reviews on Veendam later so that was other concern, but this itinerary looks perfect for us for Christmas Really would appreciate your thoughts as trying to book today or tomorrow.
  3. Thanks everyone for the answers. Good to know about the wine options. PG tips tea is good. Being originally from the U.K. I too am particular on my tea!
  4. A couple of different questions Firstly wine. I understand the rules for bringing wine onboard at embarkation but what happens if you bring wine onboard at later ports. Do you pay corkage or is is taken and returned at departure? Secondly tea . What type of black tea (English Breakfast) is available onboard ship at the moment. Embarking on my cruise Monday and have a couple of last minute questions. Thanks
  5. Thanks for the feedback. Unfortunately all they have left for that sailing is outside cabin
  6. We have a 25th Wedding Anniversary and a 50th birthday to celebrate this year and were considering the Veendam South America cruise from San Antonia Chile to Buenos Aires. The cruise would depart 19th November Wanted to get opinions on the ship and the itinerary for that time of year. South America has been on our bucket list for a while. Appreciate the input.
  7. Thanks for the information the excursion is about a 5 mins walk so it sounds like we should be OK if we get in the tender ticket line early. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  8. I am excited as we are going to be boarding the Ruby on Saturday for the Christmas cruise. I had a question about ship time in Cabo San Lucas and was wondering if it is the same as local time? We are scheduled to arrive at 7am and I have a private excursion booked at 8:30am. I wanted to be sure that a 7am arrival time is 7am local time to ensure I have enough time to get the tender for my excursion. Thanks
  9. I am a tea lover (originally from England) and was wondering what brand of tea was offered in the IC, to see if it would work for me. We will be on Ruby next week. My husband like cappuccinos and lattes so he was going to get a coffee card. Would it be totally inappropriate if he ordered me tea from his card or should I get my own (I do not drink coffee so would not use it for the coffee drinks - only for tea bags and my husband would not drink 30 coffees in a week).
  10. Thanks do much for posting. We are going to be this cruise over Christmas and this makes me even more excited! I was wondering if wine packages were being offered. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
