    New Club Orange

    It’s a perk I would miss not having breakfast in the Pinnacle where it’s nice, quiet and relaxing. We have been talking about alternating between Neptune and Signature suites but also a regular balcony. We have a Vista suite in February on the Koningsdam after being in their beautiful Signature suite last December. In April we are back to a Neptune on the NA. After that we will have to decide if the Neptunes are worth it to us any longer. I’m not liking some of the changes HAL is making but they are still my preferred cruise line, for now.

    I feel it’s a slap in the face of Neptune suite guests. No breakfast in Pinnacle-seriously? Club Orange-hope it’s a big fail.

    Eurodam Laundry service

    We just returned from the 10 day Mexico cruise on the Eurodam. I took this photo and may give you an idea.

    Eurodam Sea of Cortez Review

    I’m not sure how their embarkation went but we were watching from our balcony at the Wyndham. The winds were wild and it was torrential rain. The traffic was crazy and I’m sure it took much longer than normal for anyone in an Uber, taxi or shuttle. We did not even attempt to embark until after 1 and by then we just walked on-the rain had stopped thankfully. I felt sorry for those we saw walking pulling their luggage I assume from hotels close by. I can only imagine the scene inside. Disembarkation was an absolute breeze-wish all were as easy as that. Originally we were going to get off later (4&5* could get off anytime) but we decided to leave around 08:45 and walked right off, got our luggage right away and walked across the street to the Wyndham again.
  7. Bon voyage! Have a wonderful cruise!

    Puerto Vallarta

    Yes I think it was $104 per adult. That activity I think is called Flyboard-looked amazing if only I was younger! They have the paddle boards too as well as round floats you can sit on. Waiters on the beach bring you punch, liquor or pop. All quite relaxing or you can do stuff. Hope you enjoy it!

    Here are some photos. Just as a side note, last time we went in morning which we enjoyed more. This time we left around 11:30 so lunch was right away when we arrived. You can swim out to these; and lunch area below.

    Puerto Vallarta

    We just returned from a HAL Mexico cruise and went to Las Caletas. This was our 2nd time we took the excursion because we liked it so much. It’s a nice, comfortable boat ride to and from. The ride there goes along the coast and nice to see. On the way back it’s more of a ride and the staff put on a little show. Lunch was a buffet and very good. There is lots to do-we snorkel (not really many varieties of fish to see). It’s a great excursion in our opinion. They have hammocks to relax in on the beach or in the water. I’ll try to post some photos. There are also other activities that you can pay for. I enjoyed walking where the parrots were.
  13. @Dogstar: hope you’re having a great time on the ship! Please take photos of your cabin-the cruise with my friend in January is in a balcony-hoping us ladies get along, lol. Don’t eat too much at the Dive-In or Dutch cafe!
  14. Really love seeing your photos and enjoying your blog as well. Thank you so much for all your information.

    Brief (not really) Eurodam Sea of Cortez trip report

    Luckily we personally did not encounter any of the passengers being rude or any finger snapping. Actually, just the opposite. Maybe we were just lucky because I usually will say something if someone is downright rude to staff for no reason.
