  1. OP here. We balked on the deal, but expect more to come from HAL before the potential Alaska sailing Season. Most Alaska cruises just have that one stop in Victoria for a few hours. Wonder if there is any contingency to allow the ship to dock there with no passengers exiting. Just a thought.
  2. You got that right. Since we got the "Casino" fare, it points out that we are in fact gamblers. I may just book this and see what happens. Neptune Suites are pretty amazing, with that Neptune Lodge and all.
  3. We got an incredible "Casino Fare" rate for Alaska Cruises in May. Like $899 for a Neptune Suite w/ a $200 credit! Should I book it? I actually got mixed response's from people in the know about perhaps waiting to see. Carnival Corporation is apparently bleeding through cash and there was talk among some insiders that if they go bankrupt, we may all be holding the bag. Any thoughts out there from Cruise Critic Holland America lovers, like us?
  4. Thanks for all the responses. Still have time to decide. I do hope Cruising returns soon though! - Curtis
  5. We were booked on Regatta Sept 22 and just made final payment this week as I was assured by Oceania that the cruise was happening. Sucker punched! Anyways, it seems reasonable to keep the money in Oceania's hands as they will give us 125% credit. What do you all think?

  7. Thanks for all the responses. We are on Sirena departing today (Dec 7) and will see a reservation host ASAP. Will not bribe anyone as suggested. If the staff is accommodating, we will reward them at the end of the cruise, as is customary. -OP
  8. We are sailing today and due to procrastination or forgetfulness, we never booked our specialty restaurants. What do we do? Should I meet with a Maitre D as soon as we board? I read that some people book all of their specialties and then attempt to get extras! All we want is maybe 1 or 2 nights out of our 7 day cruise. Does having 3 Oceania's in our past help at all? Or should it be old school and tip the Maitre D for putting us in? Any advice would be GREAT! Thanks!
  9. We just booked for a December Pacific Coastal on Sirena and CANNOT wait! The travel agent said they poured $25 million into the refurbishment. Just curious what is new...we sailed her a couple years ago.
