  1. BBQ Lover, thank you very much for your reply. I appreciate the comparisons. 🙂
  2. Flatbush Flyer, thank you very much for your reply and advice. 🙂
  3. I am thinking of booking the 22-Day 'Isles of Paradise' cruise, November 28 to December 20, 2022, Miami to Bridgetown, onboard the 'SIRENA'; (an older ship built in 1999)! Although I have been on 25+ cruises with five different cruise lines, I have never been on an Oceania cruise! I am seeking information from Oceania cruisers, who have cruised onboard the 'SIRENA', about their cruise experience as well as the pros and cons of their Oceania cruises in general. Thank you very much. Ward 😀
  4. Nor have any of us Canadians thought, 'out loud', that they are being 'microchipped', when receiving the Covid-19 Vaccines! 🙄
  5. This is INCORRECT information! There is NO requirement OR stipulation on the interval BETWEEN the two doses of the SAME Covid-19 Vaccine! BTW, the 'Pfizer' Vaccine has been determined to be 88% effective against the 'DELTA' variant! 😉
  6. I feel extremely fortunate that I received (BOTH) doses of the (SAME) Covid-19 Vaccine, 'Pfizer', (nine weeks apart), at the (SAME) Health Care Facility, by a Registered Nurse, at both times! I can hardly wait to book a cruise and will have absolutely NO concerns with the possibility of having to wear a mask and socially distance during the cruise; (with NO desire to go ashore at ANY Ports of Call)! 😁
  7. So, anyone who has cruised on the 'Nieuw Statendam', would they care to offer their opinion to my original question?
  8. Ah, but the 'Nieuw Statendam' HAS sailed and it has the SAME 'Main Deck' Plan as the (upcoming) 'Rotterdam' Now, back over to you!
  9. On the Deck Plans for the 'Rotterdam', it appears that the Four 'I' Category Staterooms; two starboard/two port; just forward of Mid Ship; appear to be 'wider' but not as 'deep' as the 'J' Category Staterooms forward of them on both sides! Are these 'I' Category Staterooms Larger or smaller, in square footage, than the 'J' Category Staterooms forward of them?
  10. Crew News, thank you very much for the information. I appreciate your reply.
  11. Color pictures of the Deck Plans are included in the Holland America Line 'Cruise Atlas'! The current issue is April 2020 - April 2021.
  12. May a case of bottled water be pre-purchased and placed in your stateroom prior to boarding?
  13. What do you advise/suggest are my options since I do not possess a 'Smartphone' and Mobile 'Phone, in order to be successfully able to 'Check-In', online, under my NCL Account?
  14. Well, here in Canada we call it 'Soft Drinks'!
  15. What are my options since I do not have nor do I ever intend to have a 'Smartphone'?
  16. Since the ZAANDAM is scheduled for Drydock in Freeport, Bahamas, April 7 to 20, 2020, will it proceed or be canceled/rescheduled?
