  1. Why not rename this thread “Can I spend thousands on a cruise and save a few bucks by not tipping?” 🤨
  2. Two liters from the Bahamas, so long as one liter is locally produced. https://www.travelchannel.com/interests/food-and-drink/articles/10-tips-for-bringing-alcohol-into-the-US
  3. Here’s a well-done update on the cruise port and downtown.
  4. https://www.usatoday.com/story/travel/destinations/2021/09/15/netherlands-quarantine-requirement-us-travelers/8356811002/
  5. And don’t forget the Aquavit Terrace cooking station! Cooked to order stir fry, Asian, Mexican, Italian, seafood, etc. on a rotating basis. And nice quiet seating in the back. So quiet that the ships officers gather there for uninterrupted meals. Always hot and always good!!
  6. Or the cracked conch, peas and rice, plantains and guava duff for dessert if you’re really hungary!! 👍
  7. If this keeps up, Viking is going to go “clothing optional”!! 😳😎🤭
  8. I NEVER bring a dress on ANY cruise!! 😉😎
  9. You might be OK, but the rest of the folks on the ship probably won’t be, which is why some lines are truncating in Germany and bussing everyone to AMS within the 12 hour transit exception. Only scenario where you being OK matters is if you’re spending time post-cruise in the Netherlands.
  10. Here’s a Primer: https://www.primermagazine.com/2021/learn/the-10-minute-guide-to-port 😉😎🍷
  11. It would be a lot cheaper to walk/taxi to Fish Fry and have everyone sample from the menu. That’s about as authentic as you can get!
  12. from Atlantis website: We welcome all visitors and residents to the Paradise Island Safe Zone to enjoy the wide variety of restaurants, bars, lounges, retail shops, Marina Village, the Atlantis Casino, and Mandara Spa. Visitors and residents must present one of the following: proof of vaccination and have passed the two -week immunity period, or a negative Rapid Antigen or COVID-19 RT-PCR (swab) test result taken within five (5) days of entry to the resort.
  13. Individuals may be fine, but the ship will still stop in Germany and ALL passengers bussed to AMS. Also, since MOST passengers on the ship will not be fine, it’s likely all post-cruise stays in AMS that are sponsored by the cruise line will be cancelled, so not sure what good being fine will do you.
  14. This should do it: https://www.americancruiselines.com/cruises/columbia-and-snake-river-cruises/columbia-and-snake-rivers-cruise
  15. From Viking: Guests may bring alcohol and beverages with them, purchase alcohol ashore at destinations that sell alcohol, or purchase them from the onboard shop. Alcohol can be consumed in the guest’s stateroom or in public spaces, including the restaurants. There is no corkage fee.
  16. BUT…transit limited to less than 12 hours, so this impacts cruises which end in Amsterdam. That rules out previous day in Kinderdijk!! Probable extra day in Cologne, then race to port and airport!! 😳
  17. It’s deja vu all over again. Haven’t heard the “ I paid good money for this cruise, so I’ll wear what I darn well please!” argument in awhile. That would be good for another 2 weeks of this never-ending discussion.
  18. Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water…⚡️⚡️
  19. of course! And thank you for your service!! 😉😁
  20. I have a nice black dress baseball cap that should qualify…😉😎
  21. Can’t wait for the next jeans thread in 2 weeks or so…😁😎🚶‍♂️
