  1. Pulpit Rock Anyone know if it is routine for a cruise ship to pass Pulpit Rock on the 'Stravanger' day? If not, is it worth an excursion boat ride? I don't think we really have time to do the hike with other things to be seen in port as that hike excursion is 7 1/2 hours. The ship excursion has this notation about Pulpit Rock: "On some calls at Stavanger, the cruise ship sails into Lysefjord but does not offer the same close encounter with Pulpit Rock that is the highlight of this tour." Lysefjord is not listed on our itinerary. Thank you.
  2. We have Flam on the itinerary - -IF we get to dock there with the emissions restrictions. Eidfjord is the port for Hardangerfjord Thank you for the beautiful video..... I love your work. πŸ™‚
  3. Silly me -- I knew that! Trying to learn these new to me words. πŸ˜‰ Our 2 fjords are Hardangerfjord and Sognefjord. Well, that will be a beautiful, quiet, serene time, I am sure, as well sail the fjords. We love the Inside Passage of Alaska cruises so we are sure to enjoy these! Really getting excited. πŸ™‚
  4. Hi all, I have read many reviews of the Blue-Puffin tour for North Cape. In doing an internet search I came across a company, Arctic Guide Service. I am curious if anyone has been on their tour?How does its itinerary compare to Blue Puffin's? Any comment? I am ready to book an excursion for our cruise as I know the BP sells out. Thanks so much!
  5. Oh well, Nieuw Statendam does not fit that 1/1/2020 time frame. 😞. I have a feeling Flam is out for us..... wonder what HAL will substitute???
  6. Pardon my ignorance,,,,,but will this include Hardanger and Eidfjord? Those are the 2 on our itinerary in June, 2020. I am asking if these are 'longer' fjords for longer time sailings. BTW, we are early risers so plan on being up and about for entry!
  7. "New regulations apply for ships in Norway’s World Heritage Fjords including Flam and Geiranger, from March 1, 2019 and compliance with IMO’s Tier I takes effect start of next year." Would love to know what "Tier 1" is...... The Nieuw Statendam still has Flam on the itinerary for 2020
  8. Thank you for the details -- we are booked in the row below 1538 forward of the stairs so thinking we will be ok. We will make the best of it whatever it is! πŸ™‚
  9. I have so enjoyed your cruise blog!! Wonderful photos! We have friends on your cruise so I was happy to see what they were experiencing as they are not posting. Thank you for all the time and effort you spent to take us all along with you. Have a safe trip home!
  10. thank you - that is what I am looking at so wanted verification I am on the right track. I still find it hard to believe every single 'regular balcony' JS is under this busy deck! 😞
  11. I am curious about the JS on this ship - it appears that all the 'regular' balcony cabins are called Jr Suites and located under the pool deck -- which I normally avoid. Has anyone been in a JS on this ship and can tell me the best location for less noise in the wee hours? Thank you so much for your help.
  12. For those of you familiar with Amsterdam, is this hotel walkable to most sites. It looks like it would be within 20 min or so of most of the main attractions -- maybe a tram would be needed to the Museum area. We walk a lot but hate to spend 1/2 hour each day just getting to the area we want to tour. The price is so much less than the ones in the Canal Ring so we hope it will work well. Thanks for any input you have.
  13. Thanks so very much -- then I will pack as usual. πŸ™‚
  14. Quite a balcony!! We will be on the Midnight Sun cruise in 2020 & so excited. I am curious since this is a new ship did your bathroom have a nightlight in it? I usually take one but have noticed some are now built in similar to hotels. Thank you!
  15. I finally found a You Tube that showed a balcony here -- the white space is the roof of the waterfront and it extends out below the balcony.... not really an obstruction but can't look straight down to the water either. I looked closer and BirdTravels you are correct.... it is forward of the elevators. Thank you. This is why I like to be between decks of cabins only!
