    Prinsendam repairs

    Sorry to hear about your itinerary change with the repairs, but glad the repairs are being done and you are safe. So glad you are cruising with a 'glass half full attitude' and happy about Gibraltar. We are going there next year (didn't make it last time). If you click on my link to my spread sheet you'll see the company we are using (John Lopez). A CC and FB friend of mine was just there a did the tour and was raving about it. Hope the rest of your cruise is without incident, Rick πŸ™‚ and hope you are enjoying the P'dam (repairs and all).
  2. China Shrek doesn't "get it" Miss G, since they never pay for HSC 😞. so, they don't realize that charge adds up to cruise day credits. πŸ˜‰ Too bad HAL didn't have a system where if they gave OBC and you removed the HSC, they took the appropriate OBC back if the removal was not justified πŸ˜‰
  3. It translates into a cabin that is not an original Prinsendam cabin and has none of the character of the other Prinsendam cabins. Those were installed at a drydock by HAL and they are standard HAL cabins - no walk in closet, etc. It can also translate into vibration noise. There has been some improvement since the original issues but there are still some complaints about it. IIRC, the verandahs are deeper but narrower. The rooms were a bit smaller. You might want to take a look at halfacts.com and compare. Speaking for myself, I would avoid those cabins as I enjoy the ambience of the original Prinsendam cabins which were installed when the ship was built for a luxury line. Others may disagree with me, but I far prefer the original cabins on this ship.

    Wine package prices

    Thanks for the info. this should be interesting as all wines are supposed to be 90 or above! Hope someone posts the lists and prices once it comes out.
  5. You're not on it? You were when I previewed. 😞 😞 DAM. I'll fix that at the next update. My apologies Gail. I better recheck the other new additions. I check at preview and then submit. This is truly the website from H3LL. πŸ‘Ώ
  6. Sorry to hear about the cruise crud, Rich. That is never fun at all. 😞 How nice that you were able to see Vince and help him with his oven. Sounds like a very enjoyable day. I am SO glad that the EXEC team has restructured Macchu Pichu and you are going to be able to go! What an experience. I hope you get a good night's sleep. That's a very early time to get up!
  7. WOW 😞 😞 This is part of the COST of cruising. It's fully disclosed and it's probably people like you that help to push the cost for the rest of us that honour the request. As far as I am concerned, the crew deserve it. Frankly, I wish HAL would make the HSC more difficult to remove for people like you who intend to remove it whether they have good service or not. πŸ™

    HAL FUTURE CRUISERS' LIST Updated October 19th, 2018 [/U] We all love to hear what cruises you are booked on. I post the Bon Voyage threads 7 days before sailing so, to be included in this, you need to post your details here to allow sufficient time to be on the updated Future Cruise Listing. It’s better to post earlier than later but if it is later please post THREE weeks in advance to make sure it doesn’t get missed. We would also be interested to know if this is your first cruise, your first HAL cruise or if you are celebrating a birthday or anniversary. Details needed are in the 2nd post of this thread. Please use REPLY and not QUOTE when posting to this thread. Using 'Quote' makes a very long thread and difficult for others to read. While this list is a lot of fun, please don't mistake it for a Roll Call thread. You can go to the Roll Call Section here on Cruise Critic and find your cruise to sign up there too. That's where your Meet & Greet planning, tour sharing, and other activities specific to your cruise will be happening.

  9. Well DAM. When I previewed my listing all the bolding was there perfectly. And the listing looked lovely. And now, it's gone which makes the listing hard to read. The new additions are still underlined but not bolded. 😞 😞 Apologies everyone. I am not sure what happened with this website from H3ll.
  10. The BON VOYAGE THREADS are derived from this listing. If you would like to receive a Bon Voyage, I need the following details posted please: Your EMBARKATION date The SHIP you are sailing on Name of your cruise # of days (including if you are on a Collector's or B2B) B2B? - if you want Bon voyages for them, please give me the DATES. Please revisit the thread to make sure there are no problems. Thank you πŸ˜„
  11. This thread is now CLOSED Please post your future cruise plans on the updated listing for October 19th. Here is the link - https://boards.cruisecritic.com/topic/2596434-holland-america-boards-future-cruise-listing-updated-october-19th-2018/ Thank you. πŸ˜„

    Sommelier Dinner?

    No worries πŸ™‚ I like them both. If I had to choose (and I don't πŸ˜‰ ) I'd probably opt for a Cellar Master over a PG. It's a nice change. As it is, we do them all. My favourite is the Master Chef's Table or Rudi's dinner. Whatever people like to call it. A small group of people, gorgeous flowers, place settings, crystal and impeccable service. Sadly, I fear that may have gone by the wayside, but I will ask next year in case. these are 2 dinners that HAL does well, but my upcoming cruise's PG has always been done well so it's a win, win either way πŸ˜„
