  1. We were on the Zaandam the end of April through early May through the Panama Canal from Ft. Lauderdale to San Francisco. It is a smaller ship that does not have all the "bells & whistles" but the crew, food, entertainment, etc. are WONDERFUL. So many of the ships are adding more music venues which is great, but not the room on the smaller ships. Bigger ones have the BBKing group, Billboard on Board (2 pianos), 5 piece Lincoln Center Stage, and Rocking Room (only on the Koningsdam & Nieuw Statendam). Some ships are doing away with the Production Shows with the HAL singers and dancers which we really do miss. The Zaandam did still have them! And the tv system has been upgraded with larger tvs and interactive channels with Movies on Demand. BUT I WOULD NOT SAIL ON THE ZAANDAM just because of that. We are 5 Star Mariners with over 700 days and each ship has its own features that we like. But more importantly, WE GET TO SEE THE WORLD WITH HAL!!!
  2. Thank you all for your answers. Everyone has different needs when it comes to travel and cell phone service. We have friends that are trying to get us to switch from ATT to TMobile. They claim that they get service in Mexico & Canada and in Europe anyway (for a small fee). BUT they are the type that like to be CONNECTED all the time. But more importantly, they say they only pay $60 per month. SO I was wondering if anyone out there was familiar with this plan and its reliability. We do check emails, Facebook, send emails/texts to kids & a few friends, check banking, and a few other "business" things while traveling. But NOT everyday, every 3-5 days. With ATT the International Calling Plan ($10 per day when used) seems to fit our needs. If necessary, we will make calls and pay the price. AND since we only have cell phones for our service at home, we want a company that is reliable.
  3. Does anyone have advise as to the best cell phone plan to have that will allow use (talk, text, & data) when in foreign countries?
