  1. If it makes a difference, I was thinking of Eurodam or Nieuw Amsterdam.
  2. Just wondering...how late does the ocean bar usually have music? and what type of music?
  3. Good point . In my world 60s-70s are cold. I will watch for a ship with lido cabanas to do a Hawaiian cruise.
  4. Thanks for the great review. I really like your positive attitude.
  5. I am looking at cruises to Hawaii however DH is very emphatic that he won't go without a cabana. When crossing the Pacific does the retreat get a lot of wind? Is it still a good experience? Thanks Marcia

    I am happy to read so many positive comments about New York pizza. My only regret is that we won't be on a ship which also serves New York deli sandwiches. They sounded so good.

    Several years ago I had pizza in the Lido restaurant and it was so bad I have never eaten pizza on a cruise again. Since there is now the New York pizza space by the sea view pool, I wondered what is the general feeling regarding the quality of pizza served there? Marcia
  8. Has anyone ever disembarked from one Holland America ship and boarded another Holland ship departing the same day? I am especially interested in Fort Lauderdale. If there was an opportunity to combine two itineraries in this way, what would be the logistics? Thanks
  9. We are looking at the aft facing cabins on the Eurodam or Nieuw Amsterdam. This will be a change for us since we usually stay close to elevators. For those who have stayed in this area, did you find the distance to the elevators to be a significant inconvience?
  10. We are looking at the partially obstructed cabins on deck 4 near the midship elevators. We have never considered this location before so any help will be appreciated. What is the noise level like in these cabins? We were thinking of a large inside but I recently learned that I really don't like not being able to see outside. Thanks Marcia
  11. Has the price of the Pinnacle lunch changed?
  12. I am looking at 8041 8045 and 8037 on the navigation deck. I can't tell from the posted pictures, is it easy to watch television from bed ? It is a strange question but that is how I fall asleep at night. Thanks Marcia
  13. From the information that I can collect, it seems that the Fort Lauderdale boat show is an annual event during the last weekend in October. We are considering a cruise leaving Nov 1. Other than increased hotel prices, does the boat show disrupt the city in other ways? We usually stay at the Riverside Hotel one night pre-cruise if that makes a difference.
  14. I have never been to the fitness center so I have no idea about their noise level. Can anyone tell me if the cabins under the fitness center experience noise from above? Thanks Marcia
  15. Thanks for the info. I will mark our booking "do not upgrade" I definitely don't like hearing noise in my cabin.
  16. We are planning to book a CQ on the Eurodam or Nieuw Amsterdam. We usually book a veranda cabin and mark it "do not upgrade". This will be a longer cruise so we are going with an outside CQ and thinking of marking it as "ok to upgrade" since the next step up is a veranda. Has anyone done this and what was the result? Also are the veranda cabins on deck 4 loud....especially above the entertainment venues? Thanks
  17. If you cancel a tour after the deadline for cancellations you will receive a refund if the shore excursion office is able to sell your ticket to someone else. We cancelled one evening for a tour the next morning. We were lucky and our tickets were sold within an hour.
  18. We have cruised in a VF on deck 8 and were happy with it. I enjoyed the views from the higher level its proximity to the Lido pool and restaurant. I planned to go to a public space on deck 2 or 3 if seas became rough but it wasn't necessary. Overall we would book this cabin again.
  19. We are looking at cabins inside cabins 8060 and 8056 n the Eurodam. Does anyone know if they have sofa? A room without a sofa is a deal-breaker for us. Thanks Marcia
  20. We like a VE cabin on deck 8...Navigation deck by the forward elevators. It is under the spa and beauty salon and convenient to the lido pool and restaurant. We did not hear any elevator noise. Have a great cruise.
  21. We experienced a similar situation. Our cruise was chartered several months after we booked. All communication went through our travel agent. We were given approx. four new cruises from which to choose and the complimentary addition of the Explore 4 package. After the initial shock it worked out fine.
  22. Several years ago we tipped $50 for the week. We received a lot of personal attention so we were happy to give our attendant extra.
