  1. Anne, Advice is so helpful! Could you recommend a guide that would pick us up at the port, give a city tour then drop us off at The Fairmont?
  2. Has anyone gotten any upsell offers lately? We sail in about 3 weeks. There are still cabins available. We did book a cabin which we will be happy with but I would not might a better cabin if the price was agreeable.
  3. We just got off the NS. Our room was on de k 4 very near the elevator. There was absolutely no noise. There were problems with noise in cabins that were near the Rolling Stone Rock Room. That venue was very loud!!
  4. We sailed enjoyed the production shows on the Amsterdam in December. Now we are considering the Statendam in Febuary. Would the production shows be the same as the shows we saw on the Amsrerdam?
  5. I called Holland to ask the question. The cruise we are looking at is a closed loop on the Statendam in Feb. I was told a passport is required! I am afraid to book until my passport arrives. The Visa is for India which is more time consuming than most others. At this point I will wait for my passport and hope for last minute price reductions. Thanks everyone for their help.
  6. Our passports have been sent away for an India Visa. We are considering a cruise in Feb but our passports will not be back. It is a Carribean cruise, Has anyone done this and what was their experience? Thanks
  7. Hello Terry, I have enjoyed your post. Could you let me know who your guide or tour operator was in Dubai? We will be disembarking Nautica in Dubai this April. We would like to possible line up a tour with a drop off at our hotel.
  8. Which of the ships have BB King and Billboard?

    Does Holland America ever offer upsells on undersold cruises. We sail on Dec. 9. It looks like every catagory is still available. We are in a balcony but would not mind a suit if the price was right.😎
  10. It has been several years since we sailed Holland America. In the past we would bring a case of bottled water to the pier where it would be tagged and brought to our cabin. Is this still possible?
  11. Is there a charge for cappuccino in the dinning room? We do not have any beverage package but would like some bottled water and special coffee.
  12. Thanks. Is the gratuity on the drink package per drink or per package? We are not big drinkers.
  13. Does the free beverage package include bottled water and good coffee? How many meals does the dinning package include and can you take them all at le bistro? Are they really free or is there some catch? Thanks
  14. :)Which ships have the Thalassotherapy pools and are they still free for all passengers to use?

    Punta Cana

    We did end up doing an Oceania excursion which we did not really enjoy. There were lots of smokers on our bus. They did not smoke on the bus but everywhere else on the tour. Our last stop was the beach. It was very nice. The port area is also very nice. :cool:
