  1. Been off the boards a few weeks, and last I had read, the NA was in shipyard having one of the engines fixed, and a cruise was cancelled. Is she back in the water and ok these days? we have a mid march cruise coming up
  2. we were able to change the cruise when a better sale came up, no problem. or you can cancel, and your FCD was on record to use another time.
  3. We ALWAYS bought FCD because it was a good deal, and made SURE to book on board!! this certainly will cut down on our business, and give us time to check out other lines and options. bummer. One of the perks that kept us coming back to HAL every year!!
  4. I also miss the libraries, (the book they have now are all "coffee table books") and the crow's nest.
  5. We were on the Oosterdam twice this year: a 2 week Caribbean with my elderly mom, and then my husband and I for a 14 day European cruise. We were happy both times. Love the layout of the ship and that it has an intimate well laid out feel to it, food was good especially in the Canaletto. Service was excellent both times, especially the bar staff. The only thing I was disappointed in was the dual piano players, HAL seems to consistently find people who can't sing. And it could be such a fun venue. many cabins and ship areas have been redone. I agree, some things have changed on HAL, and I miss the bigger library, would like band before dinner in the Ocean Bar, but over all still like the wonderful service and small ship feel of the HAL ships and the oosterdam is well laid out. We had a verandah room both times and loved it, loved the spa too!
  6. We rented a clamshell in March one year... while it did provide some shade, it was HOT and hard to let any breeze in. It is a heavy material and holds the heat. We ended up just sitting out on some chairs with a bit of shade.
