  1. Loved that tour. Did have to get up early to catch the bus to Seward but the Fjords were beautiful and we saw so much wildlife. We stayed on the outside decks the whole time but we were bundled up. Got to the ship about the same time the train arrived from Anchorage with the rest of the people from our tour group.
  2. I was on the Zuiderdam in November and the female baristas were always there in the morning. I didn't see anyone ordering alcohol at opening although I guess they could have so I don't know if the baristas also bartended. In the evenings, at least one of the two bartenders was able to work the coffee side but they were happy when people ordered simple coffee drinks.
  3. We were forward on Deck 10 of the Zuiderdam on the 10 day Canal and we were fine with the motion.
  4. I talked to a couple of people who did the tour. One thought it was great and very informative. The other person said it was long and at times boring.
  5. Seeing the Panama Canal has long been on my bucket list. We were able to experience it from Nov 4 - 14 on the Zuiderdam. It was a great trip even if the azipod had problems at the end. I journaled the trip at https://mmmtravelmemories.com/ with some pictures. If you have any questions, I'll do my best to answer.
  6. I am enjoying your report. We have booked the 14 day Scotland/Ireland trip for June 2019 (the 2nd to the last sailing of the Prinsendam). Would you tell me the name of the shuttle service from the airport to the Banks Mansion that you pre-booked? We are staying there pre- and post-cruise. Thank you.
