    Unfair to Solo Cruisers on Holland America

    I agree, I think you should be able to get the full on board credit. Now I need to go back and see what my travel agent offered me as I will be doing the same.

    warning about "free" photo session on dream

    That would make me unsettled as well. I would be happy with 1-3 photos. Wow.

    warning about "free" photo session on dream

    I for one am glad you posted this. I've always loved buying photos on my cruises and hesitated because I figured there has to be a "trick". Thank you, thank you, thank you. I always think that people would get more business if they would divulge exactly what people would pay up front. Not scheming them.

    Priests will still be on HAL ships

    Yes it would be nice to learn some other topics like that, calligraphy sounds especially interesting for a sea day! Sent from my iPhone using Forums

    Priests will still be on HAL ships

    Hi everyone, so I'm sailing HAL for the first time and one of the reasons is that there is Mass on board. I hope someone can share if they still have Mass on the 7-night Caribbean cruises. I don't know if that's consider a "shorter" cruise? Thanks in advance.

    To RuthC: re solo cruising

    @Truluv - thanks for sharing your experience, it's very encouraging. I look forward to meeting people on my next cruise. @Av8rix/Susan - what are 6-tops and 8-tops? Are these the numbers of people at a table? @lazey1/Jane - so glad you started the thread! It is a GREAT thread, I think that knowing that HAL has opportunities for solo travelers is so great. I'll be going on another cruise with family on Royal Carib, but I don't think it will feel the same without the children. It may make me sad with all the "bells and whistles" on board. @momatibn - thank you for the bartender tip!!

    We're Touring Oasis! What Are You Excited About?

    I would also be interested in seeing what the Royal Promenade looks like. Additionally some of the cabins besides what's *already* been shown for months on the Oasis of the Seas website. Thank you!

    The voyage from hell!!!

    Garigoun - thank you for a very entertaining review. I really did "laugh out loud" at times. The sense of humor on this entire thread is a great. --Saundra

    How formal is it really?

    I have to agree about dressing up. In my case I love dressing up, and my DH is not a fan of it, but .....the tux, navy blue blazer, etc., came with us. After DH saw a good number of people on board following the dress code in the evenings, my DH was glad we brought his formal wear. Maybe just have one formal outfit in case you want dress up (like I believe some of the other posters have said)? If you decide you do want to dress up, at least you'll have it there with you. All the best, saundra
