  1. We disembarked yesterday from the Zaandam and although we enjoyed the Canada cruise, we were disappointed with the small size of our deck 6 Vista "Suite". We previously sailed the Statendam in a Vista Suite and had adequate room for two people. The description on HALs web site shows the Zaandam Vista Suite from 297 to 379 sq.ft. I'm sure our cabin was not 297 sq ft even with the balcony. We have three cruises booked with HAL over the next 10 months and I am now concerned about my cabin selections. (I have signature suites booked on the Eurodam and Oosterdam.) HAL shows the Eurodam Signature Suite from 273 to 456 sq ft - that's a big difference! Does anyone know how one can find out the size of a specific cabin?
  2. Thank you! I haven't sailed in an aft cabin yet. Alaska may be a good time to try one.
  3. Thank you for the info and the beautiful picture!
  4. We are considering an Alaska cruise for next June aboard the Eurodam. Which side of the ship would you recommend for a balcony or SS cabin for the best viewing at Glacier Bay? Thank you for any info you can provide.
  5. Hubby and I will be on the Zaandam next month and I was concerned after reading the negative review. Thanks for posting about your positive experience.
  6. Thanks for sharing your experience!
  7. I hope you enjoyed your cruise! Can you share some of your experience? We are scheduled for the Aug. 24th departure on the Zaandam. Did you end up staying at the YUL airport Fairfield before your cruise? (We have reservations at the Fairfield for the night before our cruise.) Were there any problems with the hotel or hotel shuttle? I don't know if it would be better to use the hotel shuttle to return to the airport to get a taxi of take one from the hotel to the port. Did the hotel arrange for a taxi from the hotel to the cruise port? Any info you can share would be appreciated.
  8. To see your booking on HAL go to hollandflightease.com. Use your airline confirmation# - not your HAL booking number. The password is: hollandamerica. When your airline tickets are paid for by HAL, I hope you post that info here. Oops - just saw your lastest posting - glad your flights have been ticketed.
  9. Thanks for responding. There is a slight difference in what shows on my AA account and what HAL shows on the confirmation. (first and middle names merged at AA) The change showed up when I entered my passport info on AA. I've had two schedule changes since I booked the flight with Flight Ease. I spent 20 minutes on hold at Flight Ease before I gave up. Once the flight is "ticketed" I can deal directly with AA. Thanks for your help.
  10. Thank you. That makes more sense than 24 hours in advance of the flight. Perhaps I phrased my question to HAL incorrectly.
  11. Our upcoming August cruise will be the first time we have sued Flight Ease. How far in advance of your flight is the Flight Ease ticket "ticketed". My AA flight shows "ticket pending" on my frequent flyer record. A HAL representative told me she "thinks" the flight is not ticketed until 24 hours in advance of the flight. That seems to be cutting it too close in case of any errors in passengers names, times, etc. Thanks for sharing your experience.
  12. We are planning to explore old town Montreal in the morning prior to our August 2019 HAL cruise. I can't find any info on what time we can check in for our cruise. I had hoped we could drop our large luggage at the terminal, board the ship and drop off our carry on luggage in our cabin and then leave the ship and explore for a few hours. Did you use the $5.00 luggage storage at the port? Any problems? Thanks for any info.
