  1. Had #4044 on the Koninsgdam ( obstructed) . The only obstructed part was looking down on the port. Looking in the distance was ok. Due to the rooms "different" layout it was somewhat dark. The veranda was quite large. Not sure we would book that again , but depending on price - who knows??
  2. Actually received 2 surveys about a week apart - but would not let me reply to 2nd- said already done! Nothing booked - and will not till all passengers and crew booked!
  3. Filled it out Saturday and received thank you today. My comments will be forwarded . Nothing booked and we are 3 star. Will not book till all vaccinated . Have a feeling will never happen in our life time I am sorry to say.
  4. Yes - we received survey yesterday ( 3 stars) and my answers were same as above!
  5. Exactly - well said. !!! No way would we sail with unvacinated passengers!!
  6. We did have a large balcony - however still missed that promenade - especially on sea days and the old fashioned deck chairs. Just a different atmosphere sitting out there versus balcony. Always made sure to walk at least 6 times ( 2 Miles) around on sea days. Too closed in! Just not the same!!
  7. Missed a proper promenade with seating too much to sail K again.
  8. Will only sail on COMPLETELY vaccinated ships!!
  9. Will only sail on completely vaccinated ships. Even though I am vaccinated and probably should not be at risk of contracting - do not want another disaster with either sick , deaths and all that isolation when different countries would not allow to ship to dock. For those reasons will only sail when proof of vaccination is MANDATORY!!!! NO EXCEPTIONS!!!
  10. I agree ! Promenade decks are one of the best features of the ship. Will now only sail on the Vista and not the Pinnacles.
  11. A quick glance thru the door of 4042 , showed a more traditional layout with the balcony door on the side instead of the end, but just an extra window on the end. However balcony was large enough for the cabin guys to bring in a couple of lounges in addition to the furniture already there. Do not have pics of that one. Depending on which direction travelling and weather conditions of course might be very shaded, but very protected from the breezes I think. Good luck!
  12. Thanks for the suggestion - but not sure about that - ( there is that Senior suspicious thing again )
  13. We stayed in K #4044 for a 21 day Carribbean cruise in Mar 2019. Not quite the same as #4046. Room lay out for the most part is , but seemed maybe slightly smaller - however you are missing that extra window. If it had the extra window like #4046 you be looking at #4042 balcony. # 4042 balcony was huge So as you walk in the room there is a big blank space where that window would have been so nice. Made the room somewhat dark. We started leaving the TV on to the aft channel and it kind of took away your attention from that big dark space as you entered the room. Too bad they did not put a big mirror on that space and it would have helped brighten up the room. The layout put the bed very close to the door. Gave you a nice space between bed and desk Might hear a few voices go by in the evening, but as not a party ship did not find that to be a big problem- however would hear the breakfast cart rattle by early morning. Had an irregular shaped deck, kind of almost triangle, but did like it. Sat 4 comfortably - no extra chairs , just used ones from inside. Sorry , do have pics but have no idea how to post them here. ( It is Senior thing- ha-ha) Not sure if there is a way you could email private message me and then maybe send them to you. Just not sure would stay in that one again - - however if price and destination were right might consider it - so not all bad for sure.
  14. Over 70 only for medical certificate??? ALL passengers should have to have medical certificate including children - otherwise discrimination!! Not only will Doctors be reluctant to sign something like that- if they do there will be a charge for that service. As we know children can be little germ factories!! Just much easier to stay on land!!
  15. Forecast for this coming week seems to be in the 70 s and 80 s depending where in Australia one is. Now as a Canadian, hardly think that is cool- however it might be for some depending on where one lives. I know Australia is much warmer at other times of the year. Just not sure how their "winter season " is. We were there in Feb and March- nothing cool about it, but of course every year is different!
  16. If medical certificate is needed, when would one get that?? At time of booking or just days prior to boarding ? Just too many if s, if that is how cruising will be. Another landlocked tourist I am afraid!! Would never expect my Doc to agree to that .
  17. If warmer weather slows it down, why is Australia and New Zealand suffering right along with other countries?
  18. I find these sea day sales ( mostly junk) very annoying . Seating around the pool is already at premium on sea days - at least it has been on the ships we have been on and then they remove lounges to display their product. !!!
  19. We agree with that. We need a real promenade!! Also the very poor entertainment!!
  20. Cabin 4044 last March/ April had strange noises!
  21. 4042 has the extra full length window and the balcony door as well. We were in 4044 . Kind of dark and dreary room as large portion of our wall was adjacent to balcony 4042, so no window there only blank wall to look at as you entered. Patio door was further down and chesterfield was tucked into little alcove along side patio door. Nice space between desk and bed, but other than that no so good. They could brighten the room up with a large mirror on that big blank wall. We would leave the TV on tuned to the aft channel, so when entering the room it looked like a picture and kind of took your eyes of the big blank wall next to it. Balcony was a bit bigger . Could fit 4 on it. 4042 had nicer - bigger balcony. 4042 had pretty much the traditional lay out, other than the extra window and patio door on the side, where as 4044 was sideways, so bed was only 30 inches from hallway. This was on the Koningsdam , so not a real party ship so evenings hallway was not too noisy- however could hear breakfast carts in the morning rattling by. As we were on B/B- the last night of the first half of cruise was very noisy picking up luggage. 4046 also had extra window and very long balcony. Much brighter room than 4044, but same layout being sideways and bed close to hallway.
  22. About 3/4 years ago while getting off ship met another couple from New Zealand who had the same questions as we did. How to get there using the Metro. We spotted a whole line of taxis just waiting for trips. We decided to share a taxi and it was $20.00 U.S. for one way and the same on the way back. Splitting the fare made for a very reasonable trip and met some very nice people. Great day. ! First Taxi tried to convince us to keep him for the whole day and do more touring. As we and the other couple had been to this port before and only was now interested in the Acropolis we declined. It would have been $100.00 US for each couple, still not outrageous but had already seen the attractions he wanted to take us to on previous trip.
  23. Yes- we agree with above comments. Promenade on K terrible
