  1. We are too. We don't leave Cozumel until Wed Feb 26th. Flying to Toronto to catch our Feb 27th flight to Tokyo. I wish they'd just cancel and let us deal with all the other cancellations we have to make (airfare, hotels, etc)
  2. We're booked on the Feb 29th sailing and are waiting to hear if/when it is cancelled. I hope we get some advance notice not like friends of mine who flew from Cozumel to Dallas to LAX to Tokyo and then to Singapore only to arrive and find out that NCL cancelled the Feb 15th sailing on the Jade. They are booked for 2 more B2B so I'm not sure if they are going to stay in Singapore for 11 days before boarding and doing the 2nd cruise from Singapore to Dubai. Might be nice to visit a few days and then head up to Kuala Lampur for a visit.
  3. We're on the 29th sailing too and are waiting it out. We still want to cruise. Right now HAL has offered $250/person for the fees for changing our flights from Shanghai & Hong Kong to Tokyo. Wonder if they'll increase that if we have to change our flights again. Plus we have $1,000 in flights from Mexico to Toronto to catch our flight to Asia. Maybe we'll be spending our 3 week vacation in Canada. LOL
  4. I had just asked my TA recently if we could get an upgrade out of our Inside cabin and was told that HAL said "no". We sailed this same cruise last year and when the price dropped significantly 2 months before sailing, HAL upgrade us from a Guaranteed Inside to a Balcony cabin plus we got $100 beverage card each and a dinner in the Pinnacle Grill. I was kind of hoping for the same thing. If I'm going to be stuck on a ship, I'd rather do it in a balcony cabin. If everyone keeps cancelling then maybe they'll reconsider. HAL's official e-mail said "We understand this may not be th
  5. We are sailing Feb 29-Mar 14 and are still planning to go. $250 OBC/person is nice plus they'll pay up to $250/person for change fees charged by the airlines to change our flights to Tokyo. A full cruise credit to be used in 2020 doesn't appeal to us either. A full refund plus a 100% cruise credit would be nice too but I don't think that will happen. I am hoping that the current passengers get off safely and the ship is totally sanitized during the 2 weeks the ship has no passengers because of the cancellation of the Feb 15th cruise. We also have over $1,000 in fligh
  6. On our cruise last year we each were given a $25 Beverage Card when we booked. And then when the price dropped drastically....our TA called HAL and we got a cabin upgrade, a free dinner at the Pinnacle Grill AND a $100 beverage card each! We don't drink. We were buying cappuccinos for friends we met on the cruise and at the end we still had lots of $$$$ on it. We were told "Use it or lose it". So we ended up buying two coffee mugs, two cold drink beverage cups (glasses) and two red America's Kitchen aprons.
  7. We always requested a table for two and got the same section and wait staff. After a day or so we fell in love with our waiter on the Westerdam and was able to make a 7:45pm reservation for the same table for two for the rest of the week. A few days before it ended, we made the same reservation for the second week of our cruise.
  8. I am sailing the Westerdam Feb 29th to March 14 and am happy with the changes to Yokohama to Yokohama with no Manila or Kaoshing, Taiwan. We did this same cruise last year and booked it again because we LOVED that cruise and this time there were a "few" changes. Now there are a lot of changes. More Japan which I am very happy about. I'm not going to miss Hong Kong either as I've been there over a dozen times before. I do not have insurance and Air Canada waived the fee for the change for the first flight from Toronto to Shanghai but not the second one home from Hong Kong. That
  9. Well just received an e-mail that Holland America is changing our Feb 29th cruise from Shanghai - Hong Kong to Tokyo - Tokyo. So no more worries about the 144 hr TWOV or coronavirus.
  10. Is this still available? We asked about it 2 years when in HK trying to get to the cruise terminal and we were told "no". We tried again last year when we arrived in HK from another cruise and were still told "no"
  11. I believe it is the same for all. I entered Feb 28th arrival. Leave China March 1. That requires us to get a 72hr TWOV.
  12. Just tried to do my pre-application for the 144 hr TWOV on-line at the Chinese government site for my upcoming cruise in Feb/Mar and got a Error404. I was able to enter all the information and save it but got the message so I will be holding off before submitting until I KNOW it saves properly. Here is the website for those who need it: https://gaj.sh.gov.cn/crj/ka144/enlogin/enindex
  13. We got cranberry juice every night for dinner in the MDR and twice in the Pinnacle Grill but I think that waiter had to go get it from somewhere else. As soon as we sat down in the MDR, our waiter brought us 2 cranberry juices without even asking for them.
