  1. Thanks again VMax1700. We're scheduled to arrive at 8:05 am, so hopefully it won't be as crowded.
  2. Did you not take a seat by choice or were no seats available? Also, what time of day was it?
  3. We greatly appreciate all the thoughtful responses and opinions. I don't post often, but I do get many helpful tips from CC. Thanks again.
  4. That's good to hear. The train will work as long as we have a place to put our luggage. That's really the only hesitation. Thanks to all who have responded.
  5. Sorry for the lack of clarity. We're staying at the Rotterdam Marriott. We're scheduled to get into Amsterdam around 8:30 am and would want to head straight to Rotterdam.
  6. In about 5 months we'll be flying to Amsterdam for a TA from Rotterdam. We'll be arriving the day before our cruise so Holland's transportation isn't available to us. We will have 1 large and 2 smaller suitcases, so our question is the most economically feasible mode of transport for us to take. We're considering the train, but wanted to know if anyone has experienced it with that much luggage, and if the train can easily accommodate it? I've looked at Amsterdam boards as suggested on our roll call, but can't seem to find a definitive answer, and Taxis seem to be a bit too costly. Any transportation suggestions will be much appreciated. TIA.
  7. 1990 on the Costa Riviera to the eastern Caribbean.
  8. We just returned from a cruise on the Eurodam. Everything was great and we had no real complaints; however, I did make a suggestion on my review. I truly enjoy trying local beers on every port we visit. So I suggested that Holland should consider offering beers on the ship that reflect the itinerary. Our next cruise is October on the Rotterdam, so I would love to see them implement this plan.
  9. That would be an ouch. We leave St. Thomas at 4:00, so hopefully, being at sea, that won't be a factor.
  10. That would actually be a nice place to watch. I wonder if that's where the Chiefs and Dolphins game was last night?
  11. We're going to be on the Eurodam during the Superbowl. Where do they show the games on this ship? Thank you!
  12. Thank you. I still believe it's a great value. We're very appreciative of it even if we have to pony up a bit more for a couple of items to be dry cleaned.
  13. We're 4* in Signature Suite for this cruise, so I don't know that the comp for Neptune would translate. Thank you and Crew News for your quick responses!
  14. Our upcoming Feb. 3rd cruise will be our first as 4* Mariners. We've used the laundry service before while in a Neptune suite but not sure if dry cleaning is part of the complementary service or if it is extra? I appreciate any input.
  15. Our Uber was $26.34 from the airport to the Aloft Seaport which meets your Marriott request, and $22.57 from the hotel to the port. The port was very close and we could see our ship from our room. I thought the proximity and transportation costs were very reasonable and would choose it again. Best of luck to you whatever you choose.
  16. We stayed at the A Loft Seaport District Hotel for our September HAL cruise to Quebec. Very reasonable. No shuttles, but Uber from the airport to the hotel and then to the cruise port was under $50 including tip. Didn't "break the bank" in my opinion.
