  1. The world is facing a deadly pandemic. The US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) as well as the health agencies of many other countries have advised against nonessential travel to Italy. The Director of the US National Institute of Infectious Diseases has advised against all cruise travel. Flights from Europe to the US have been banned. Italy is closed, including schools, transportation, tourist sights and all stores except grocery and pharmacies. Princess Cruise Line has cancelled all cruises and other cruise line sailings have been cancelled. All airline companies are cutting back flights. Grand Princess passengers were restricted to their staterooms while the ship waited to receive permission to dock and are now in quarantine. Many countries, most recently Malta and Canada have banned all cruise ships. The CDC has prevented the Caribbean Princess and other ships from sailing. Diamond Princess passengers waited in quarantine as more and more fellow passengers became ill or died. Cruise lines are offering future cruise credits. Cruise passengers have been responsible for spreading the virus. As a cruise passenger you are at greater risk of contracting the virus. As a cruise passenger you could face changed itineraries, quarantine, travel restrictions, delays and have no flights to be able to return home. And most important, as a cruise passenger you could be responsible for transmitting the virus to your loved ones, friends and others. Yet people are saying they are still going to take their cruise, “it will be an adventure.” This is my last post. I wish for everyone to be well, safe and smart. Cap
  2. A question concerning the port of La Goulette. (for Tunis, Tunisia) It is my understanding taxis and hired drivers cannot meet cruise ships in port. They can only pick-up and drop off passengers outside the port's gate some distance from where the ships dock. Is this correct? If so, what is the distance between the ship docks and the gate? Are there shuttles or transportation from the ships to the gate or do passengers have to walk? (We will be sailing on Holland America Nieuw Amsterdam this April.) Any information will be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Cap

  4. RE: Post Refit Features and Additions I would be grateful to know what attractions were added on the Zuiderdam during last fall's dry dock. Does the Zuiderdam now have Holland America's Exploration Center (EXC) and the Rijksmuseum at Sea like were added to the Westerdam earlier in 2017? If not, does anyone know when they are scheduled to be added? I have read the Zuiderdam now features B. B. King's Blues Club and Lincoln Center but I have not been able to find out what other innovations were added. (Sadly, when I phoned HAL the agent said he wasn't sure.) Thank you for your replies. Cap
