  3. My favorite 2 are: Hunky Dory now known as Imam. He was our Lido Tray manager on our very first cruise May 2008 on the Oosterdam. Once he knew your name he remembered you forever. Last time we cruised with him was aboard Zuiderdam September 2011 where he was making his way the HAL ladder as a 3rd MDR manager. Walter aka Wally My "1st Son" on the Zuiderdam (I think 2015 or 16). He is/was one of the Lido Aft Bar waiters who adopted me as his "Mommy". As I said, he was/is My 1st son. Over the next 3 weeks I became Mommy to all the Bar Staff and Grandma to dozens:)

  9. One and only cruise we took to Cazumel, Cabo etc., aboard Oosterdam in 2011, I started itching like crazy before we headed to San Diego. I had what appeared to be bites on my lower legs and ankles. Hubby had nothing (we do share a bed.) It was not until we were home and I realized that these were not BB bites as I'd suspected but Sand Fleas. Sand fleas are nearly invisible, though I did see a couple while I was lazing on my verandah. My Dr did say that it is almost impossible to tell the difference sometimes between bites of various insects.... Joanie
  10. Just read in Cruise Industry News QUOTE: "Cruise & Maritime Voyages (CMV) saw two of its ships, the Columbus and Vasco da Gama, meet some 12 nautical miles off the coast of Phuket, Thailand to undertake a unique passenger transfer and repatriation operation involving 239 passengers."

  11. Thanks KK. I felt the same way. I'm happy to have this thread!! Joanie
  12. Just saw this on Yahoo News. Awesome to see the Cambodian Premier shaking the hands of Westerdam Passengers as they came off the ship:) https://www.yahoo.com/news/video/cruise-passengers-took-cambodia-bus-204551389.html Joanie
  13. Since the post you've quoted, I have changed the font and color. I am now using Tahoma as the font at size 18, with the color being #000066. Sail, can you try again? I think you, as well as AlanF65 may have posted to a slightly older post:) The only thing I have left to change would be the size of the font. Joanie Joanie
