    Cool Cruiser
  1. We cruised on the Celebrity Constellation and also on Costa Fortuna in December 2007. I was very disappointed in the Costa Cruise. The cabins were very nice, the food was very good, cabin steward and waiters were super but the other guests were terrible. From now on it is only US ships for us. (We are Swiss living in Switzerland) The European guests were very unpleasant, rude, pushy, unfriendly, even if spoken to in their language. The only nice ones were the British. What a different experience the Celebrity Cruise was, everybody was nice and friendly. It does not cost anything and it makes life so much more pleasant. No more European Cruise Lines for me. Another bother was the announcing of everything in 6 languages.

    HAL cowtows to Libya!

    In 1989, HAL became a wholly owned subsidiary of Carnival Corp., the largest cruise company in the world. Today, the premium cruise leader operates 13 ships to seven continents and carries nearly 700,000 cruise passengers a year.

    HAL cowtows to Libya!

    ....... A few of us felt this wasn't right and decided that if the staff couldn't go neither would we. We thought that the 900+ American passengers on board would have something to say about it as well. They did. They said that they had paid for the cruise and wanted to go ashore and if a few of the cruse staff that happened to be American couldn't go then it was tough luck! They went ashore and those of us who decided to stay and those who had to stay had a great party! Stephen BRAVO, I admire people who have principles and do what is right and not just of what they want.

    HAL cowtows to Libya!

    Very simple, it is discrimination and I always get upset when I see it. If Libya would demand the same of all the guests it would not be the same but just singling out the Americans and the Israelis that is just plain noxious and for that reason we should make our displeasure known. Incidentally HAL is an American company!

    Hello Carolyn I think you misunderstood me. I was disappointed that HAL would still stop there even if this country was giving US and Israeli citizen such a hard time. I felt the decent thing for HAL would have been to cancel all stops there. I am with you, there are much better places to visit than the Magreb countries, nothing much there. regards cosi

    Hi, I meant why do they even dock in places like that? Libya gets money from HAL if they dock there. They should just stop going to places like that. There is nothing special to see there anyway.

  11. Holland American Line Cruise Thu Apr 10 Tripoli, Libya IMPORTANT NOTE: Libya will not allow U.S. citizens and persons born in the U.S. to disembark in Libya. Due to current restrictions in Libya the cruise line may not be able to allow passengers with Israeli passports, Israeli stamps in their passports, or passengers born in Israel to embark on a cruise that visits Libya. What a bunch of wimps those HAL people. I will never again cruise with them. I am not a US citizen and not an Israeli but this is too much. Shame on you. I wonder of Carneval Cruise knows about this?
