  1. Our MDR Stewards were from the Phillipines. They didn't seem to mind serving the drinks.
  2. We are also on this cruise. We had a 12:40 boarding time and had booked a Holland America transfer from the airport. We arrived at the airport around 9. They put us on a bus and shuttled us to the cruise port by 10. We already had our pictures loaded on the Navigator and had our boarding passes uploaded. We got off the bus by boarding times. We were sent through the 4* & 5* line and we were on the ship and having lunch in the Lido by 11:30.
  3. We are on the July 24th cruise and we actually were able to choose our cabin. I have booked guarantee cabins before though. Sometimes we have gotten our assignment a few weeks before the cruise and other times when we get to the cruise port. Unfortunately, we do not have the Signature Drink package but as Oaktreerb has said, you may be able to go to our Roll Call and find that information. There is a lot of good information on there. We have downloaded on HAL Navigator App, uploaded security photos and received our boarding passes today. We have received our contracts, signed our V
  4. We were on the 24 Day European Capitals and Atlantic Sojourn. When they cancelled the first 10 Days they left us on the 14 Day but they did issue us a different booking number. We were able to keep our same cabin. On the Roll Call, it sounds like people are still waitlisted. Surely, it won't be too much longer that they can start putting you all on the trip with us.
  5. Please add us to the 14 Day Atlantic Sojourn on the Rotterdam, October 20, 2021. Thank you! Paul & Phyllis

  7. We were on the Eurodam in 2019. We ordered milkshakes at the Dive In and used beverage cards to pay for them.
  8. We took our grandkids to Alaska in 2019. They used their birth certificates and driver's license for flying and checking in with Holland America when we got to Seattle. I checked them in with Holland America on line before we left to get their boarding passes. You can check in without a passport. We went to Victoria before coming back to Seattle, no problem. I agree with all of you that a passport is so much easier but it can be done without one.
  9. We have booked the 24-Day European Capitals & Atlantic Sojourn cruise departing on October 10 - November 3, 2021. We will be embarking on the new Rotterdam and are so excited to maybe start cruising again. Thank you for all of your hard work. I can only imagine how difficult it is considering all of the cancellations and rebooking since this virus began.
  10. We had paid a FCC as partial payment on our cruise and I think that is why I am having trouble understanding how they have calculated the new FCC. Does anyone know if you get 25% on the entire cruise fare regardless of how it was paid or only the cash amount that was paid? Hope that question is not confusing, I think I have more than confused myself trying to understand all of this.
  11. We received our FCC today for this cruise, however, I cannot understand how they got they totals they came up with. I have emailed my TA, hopefully she can explain. We have not received any of the cash refund yet on our credit card.
  12. We had a 21 day cruise scheduled on Nieuw Statendam beginning January 6, 2021. We have not received anything yet so it doesn't sound like they are going in order by the sail date. I guess I am going to have to call Holland America.
  13. We were suppose to be on the Nieuw Statendam on April 18th for the 14 Day Normandy and Azores cruise, which got cancelled. I can't see bringing the ship over for one cruise. I would love to know their plans.
