  1. Can you please tell me how to get Tom's guide? Thanks
  2. Hello. Is there a sign up list for those who are doing the entire 2011 World Cruise instead of by segments? Thank you
  3. We were also on the Prinsendam 38-day Med/Black Sea cruise and agree that she is a wonderful ship. Hopefully they will work small miracles in dry dock as she is looking a bit shabby. A few bottles of scratch coat (new furniture would be better) and new upholstery would help. One of the automatic doors leading to the Lido Restaurant aft. was out of commission for the entire cruise. New mattresses in the cabins would also contribute to the Signature of Excellence that HAL advertises (at least in our cabin on Deck 6). In spite of her flaws, she is one of our favorites! The majority of passengers were relaxed, friendly and well-traveled. Thom and Tina Faulkner are the best and quite an asset to HAL. The entertainment onboard was tops. Seabreeze was the excellent band in the Ocean Bar and Buddy Mitchell drew a crowd every night in the Crow's Nest. I think Thom had much input in choosing the nightly entertainment as they were all well-worth watching. The itinerary was exciting and Captain Gundersen worked his magic by avoiding tendering whenever possible. He also steered us through the calmest of our 5 transatlantic crossings. Capt. Gundersen is a charming gentleman and host. It was a great trip and we look forward to sailing on the Prinsendam again. I trust the changes to deck 8 will work well. We also hope they will not enclose the Lido Restaurant aft as it is our favorite spot for breakfast and lunch. LFL
  4. Thank you, SMEYER. You answered my question very well. Now I will search for the hotel. LFL
  5. Hello. We will be flying to N.Y. October 8 for one night prior to boarding the QM2 at Red Hook Terminal. How should we do this? Which airport - JFK or LaGuardia? What hotel? What area? I have been on Hotwire, but find too many areas and choices. We do not care about a show - just a nice dinner so don't know which area would be best and convenient. We will be traveling for quite a while and will have too much luggage for trains, buses, etc. Will need to take taxis due to bags. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you, LFL
  6. COPPER, Can you tell me who the Prinsedam Captain will be during October and November, 2008? Do you also know who is scheduled as Hotel Manager and Maitre d' ? Thanks, LFL
  7. Do you know who will be the Prinsendam Captain in October and November, 2008? Would also love to know names of the hotel manager and maitre d' during this time. Thank you, Lenora
