  1. If the remote control has an option to set the tv screen image in reverse, then the handheld mirror on the sofa should work out okay. Who is willing to send an email to HAL asking about that feature? 😉
  2. Neat trick by HAL. All the solo rooms are ocean view, therefore are an upgrade from inside guarantees.
  3. TV is on the wall next to the desk. While sitting at the desk, TV is above your left shoulder. Given that the room has no sofa, you tend to watch while sitting up on the bed.
  4. I reached the same conclusion and booked 11058 on Nieuw Statendam (inside on deck 11, but has a window looking to the jogging track). The pics show that 1012 and 11058 have similar floorpans, except for window and TV locations. Nieuw Statendam stateroom 11058
  5. Sorry for a bit off topic. Puppy CANDU Cruise. Must be a high energy pup? 😉😂
  6. I am becoming convinced about the name change. The R class Rotterdam and Amsterdam were co-flagships of the HAL fleet.
  7. As of today the formerly Ryndam cruises are listed as Rotterdam on the HAL Plan A Trip section. Must be another of the famous planning and booking engine troubles. 7-Day Premiere Voyage SHIP ROTTERDAM FROMCA$2,129PER PERSON INSIDE Taxes, Fees and Port Expenses are additional up to CA$120.

  8. This explains the anomaly that I see in dates for my July 2020 cruises Canada New England. Due date was changed but penalty dates are before the new final payment date. i.e. 50% forfeiture is a few days before you have to pay anything above the initial deposit. Confusing!!
  9. And the first voyage will be chartered by KFC Corporation. 😂🤔
  10. Look for On-Demand TV in the ship amenities table. Some of the R-Class ships are upgraded but not all. https://www.hollandamerica.com/content/dam/hal/inventory-assets/ships/pdf-files/HAL_Ships_at_a_Glance_Chart.pdf
  11. Relax. I was admiring, not complaining. 😄
  12. Talk about the most unusual thread-drift that I have seen. 😄👌 Anyway, I am also a Juneau Harbour webcam aficionado. Even if they spell it “Harbor”.
  13. Just wanted to say that I am still an active member of this "secret" cult. My next cruises are booked as: July 2020 Amsterdam 7055 for a B2B Montreal-Boston-Montreal, and Dec 2020 Volendam 7086 for Half Panama (my exact room for Alaska a few years back).
  14. I had an identical power bar in my Massdam cabin powering the refrigerator via an extension cord. I hope they do not swap them all out just because of that old HAL logo, which still depicts the ship Half Moon. 😀😉
  15. Just want to ask about how easy (or difficult) the walk is through Port Everglades to the shops and restaurants. When riding the shuttle bus, the area seems to not be pedestrian friendly. I presume you went basically northward to the business row?
