  1. I just booked the Rotterdam for December 2021 and my Club Orange cost was $25/day.
  2. So so happy to read this happy ending! My 82 yo Mother and I have been following this story since the beginning. She is beyond delighted to hear this wonderful news!
  3. That is so awesome! I was a season ticket holder for many years in the 90's ... saw the original Rockies start playing in 1993 ...
  4. I’ve gone with Harv and Marvs x3. Completely awesome! Many whales seen each time!

    Hands down one of the best excursions in Ketchikan.... https://www.viator.com/tours/Ketchikan/Bering-Sea-Crab-Fishermans-Tour-from-Ketchikan/d942-6347SEACRAB Eagles galore. Highly entertaining!
  6. Has anyone arranged a 1 way cruise from Vancouver BC to Anchorage, then spent a week in Alaska (I want to spend several days in Denali) and then caught another cruise from Anchorage back to Vancouver? What cruise lines did you book? Did you book any of the land potion with a tour company? Thanks in advance for any suggestions. I'm hoping for June 2021.
  7. Hi all, I didn’t want to start a troublesome thread but this a different type of tipping question. I always keep the regular tips but I’m used to having only 2 waiters not the whole CO crew. 😁
  8. I had a table near the window (and hallway) and had good water views. I saw a pod of about 35 dolphins pass. Saw some nice sunsets and watched a few boats pass by. The people watching as folks passed by was really fun as well. There are several tables for 4 as well as a few tables for 6. Although I preferred a table for 2, I got to know and converse with others seated near me (if we were in the mood). Photos below are of CO from my table and also of the windows.
  9. I got off the Koningsdam on December 15th. I ate every breakfast and dinner in Club Orange (wonderful experience!). I am still wondering how much of a tip would be appropriate for the CO staff? There is the maitre d', the 5 waiters and a wine steward. All of them waited on me throughout the cruise. So, what would be an appropriate tip for the exceptional service? (This is for future reference). Many thanks!
  10. Completely agree! As a lowly one star HAL newbie, sailing solo, selecting Club Orange was the best choice ever! I am now thoroughly spoiled and cannot imagine sailing again without booking Club Orange. I ate every breakfast and dinner in CO. I loved everything! The food, the staff, the ambiance, etc. I got an email invite about 2 weeks before sailing for an extra charge of $25/day. I not only got CO but an upgraded cabin + several other perks. For me, this was very worth the extra money. I only wish CO was open for lunch as well.
  11. I'm traveling solo on the Koningsdam right now. I absolutely love Club orange. The staff and food is fantastic (always fresh). I have a small table where I can watch everything going on. I converse if I want to or stay to myself. The "fish bowl" has not been an issue at all (I am seated right next to the windows) as I can people watch and watch the ocean go by as well. I cannot imagine enduring the MDR or Lido every again. Club Orange has totally spoiled me!!
