  1. Thanks for the reminder that they dropped Charlottetown, which was THE main draw for me on that sailing--as we've never had it on previous NE/Canada cruises (and I'm an Anne of Green Gables fan)....
  2. We do love HAL—the ONBOARD staff & crew, accommodation, and itineraries— but sometimes the lack of appropriate communication from the HOME OFFICE is perplexing and disheartening.... The NE & Canada revision is indeed inviting!
  3. Thanks for posting the revised itinerary, CStorm! Was any explanation given for the change?
  4. Thanks so much for responding! Unplanned complications arise, but you’d think a major cruise line would have the business brains (not to mention the common courtesy) to at least post a temporary “place-holder” note explaining that the missing cruises will soon be back in the listings after some adjustments.... And you’d think they’d inform their own phone reps about these disappearances. Glad to hear YOU ultimately got a great deal! 😃 BTW: My husband and I absolutely adored our week in Sydney before embarking our Sydney-Auckland cruise on Christmas Eve 2008. Hope to get back one day.
  5. Agreed! It's indeed confounding why HAL CAN'T figure out how to charge the correct amount per Mariner status on the dinners or packages--because HAL CAN (instantly) offer the correct special discounts on specific sailings (such as a discount for early booking of an EXC)--though it does get credited back to your onboard account.... ⁉️
  6. Does anyone have a clue to this mystery? First, last week the disembarkation port of the 8/19-9/07 CPH-NYC was changed from NYC to Boston. Then, all Zuiderdam cruises--including the above and after, up until her October 7 Quebec CIty-FLL--disappeared.... Charters? Soft-furnishing upgrades? ⁉️ "Curiouser & curiouser...." Thanks, Mary-Lou 😎
  7. THANKS, dear friend! And nearby restroom are always appreciated. 😉 Hugs, Mary-Lou
  8. Hi, dear Ruth! Does this work on the Maasdam? Thanks, Mary-Lou
  9. Thanks so much! Great blog post. 😎 ( I think the problem was there was no link in your earlier URL, so when I copied and pasted it into my browser, it somehow didn’t work.) Appreciatively, Mary-Lou
  10. I forgot to click NOTIFY ME. 😉
  11. Thanks for posting the link—but it doesn’t work. Any suggestion of how to get to it?
  12. Am I reading some posts correctly (or not) that even if the Cyber Sale price is more than your price on an existing booking (2020, for example), HAL applied the free gratuities without raising your existing price? (We have an outside agent. Should that make a difference?) Thanks, Mary-Lou
  13. Still appreciate your helpful tips for when I’m back to my computer. 😃
  14. Thanks for your always so very prompt and gracious responses and advice, Globaliser! Perhaps my problem is I’m on an iPhone 8 while traveling in Portugal (?)—but: —> BULLETS: The menu displays only BIU, smiley, link, font, size, colors, and search. —>SIGNATURE: It’s on— but I don’t see anyone else’s. —>SUBSCRIPTIONS: Today it’s showing links to posts on each subscription *by day*—so I have to scroll and scroll and scroll for roll calls that are not particularly active..? Seems ineffective compared to the previous listing of each subscription—once only—with the latest post only...?? —># OF POSTS: I still can’t see the number of *other* posters’ posts, which for me is a bit of a guide to credibility. I realize this is a work in progress, so I would love to see a list of the benefits of this rather massive change. Appreciatively, Mary-Lou
  15. What happened to: —signature display ( I still don’t see mine or anyone else’s.) —go to top —bullet list —number of posts of poster —list of *all* subscribed threads ??????!?!!!!
