  1. Enjoying your review and awesome pics!
  2. We (four of us) flew on Icelandair last week and had no problems. All our checked luggage arrived. I did not see anyone having any carry-on luggage issues. None of ours was checked or weighed. We were served drinks and food could be purchased. We only had a 2 hour flight so not an issue for us. The flight attendants were so nice on our flight! I would use them again.
  3. I don't think you mentioned your age. We are in our early 60's and know when we take a HAL cruise it is going to be an older crowd and the late night dancing (10:00) will be dead!! But, that is ok on some itineraries. We are not loyal to any cruise line. We pick the time we want to go, the ports we want, and a good price. We have never had a bad cruise. They all have their good and bad points.
  4. I just did the Panama Canal cruise on Volendam and loved it! But, we like the smaller ships that are less crowded, easier to get around and less of a wait to get off at ports & tendering.
  5. I just got off the Volendam and did not see a laundry facility.
  6. Did you get your passport stamped? Passport stamps are my favorite souvenir!! I'll share a couple pics of the ones I got this month.
  7. They always say to take your ship card and a "government issued i.d." when leaving the ship, at a port. I could take my drivers license but I choose to take my passport. It's a personal choice. I don't take ship excursions and take my passport just in case. I also try, at all ports to get my passport stamped, so I have another reason to take it with me. If I'm in a place I feel more security is needed, like crowded train stations, or cities like Barcelona, I wear a pouch inside my shirt, but usually I wear a cross body bag with money & passport. I do keep a copy in my ship room or hotel safe and on my phone. So far, so good.
  8. We also just got off this cruise and we had a great time! I agree with most of your observations but will add the following, in response to 5, 6 & 8. #5 & 6 We loved the Lido buffet for dinner and setting outside on the back deck, with beautiful sunsets. We only ate one evening in the dining room and we were disappointed. My husband loved the steaks, prime rib and filet mignon that were served in the Lido. #8 We actually enjoyed the entertainment. We loved the Adagio group and the Oceans Lounge Trio. The stage shows were decent and the comedian was very funny! Frankly, we passed on the piano guy.
  9. I agree! That's why we were pleasantly surprised. It's like they were bending over backwards to help everyone.
  10. Because it is right across from the ship and we forgot an item and I bought some soda!
  11. We brought a 12 pack of cans on at embarkation but brought a 2 liter on at one of our port stops.
