  1. Having just returned from South America on the Zaandam we had THE best EXC guide who packed the theatre out at every talk. Kevin very well informed and very funny at times and his information was invaluable at some challenging ports of call. He really showed us how to get the best from each place whatever our interests. I said on my survey that these talks set Holland apart from other lines whos only intent is to sell as many excursions as possible and strengthens their claim of in depth port immersion. I do hope they continue.
  2. Charging to dine with the Captain with a sliding scale for the rest of the crew.
  3. Thank you Roy for your great blog. The work you put in and the time it must take to put all this together is much appreciated. I will be on the Zaandam in that part of the world in about 6 weeks time (going the other way round The Horn) and your writing and photos have been so helpful building up excitement for our trip. Keep going Roy and know that we are all hang on to your coat-tails. Chris P.S It seems the penguins have not been idle!
  4. Many thanks for the speedy reply RuthC. What a great scheme and so much easier to keep the accounts straight. I think it is the way to go in future especially on longer cruises,
  5. Could I also ask how do you know how much you have left on the card? Are you given an invoice with each transaction? Forgive me for butting in but I have just bought some of these cards for our next cruise and am interested in how you keep a check on the amount left on the card.
  6. Another fabulous world Cruise blog to keep up with. Love it!! Although I am beginning to wonder if I am going to get any work done at all this winter. Thank you for bringing us along. Bon Voyage Chris
  7. What a fabulous trip and we are so very grateful that you allow us to tag along. You have no idea how much you brighten up a very long winter in the UK. Bon Voyage to you both Chris
  8. I too enjoyed following you on your World Cruise and wishing you calm seas and a fabulous cruise to The End of the World and beyond Chris
  9. Instead of wringing the clothes once they are rolled in the towel place them on the bathroom floor and stamp on them. They then dry quite quickly.
  10. Have a fabulous time. I am so looking forward to your travels. You and Scrapnana brighten my gloomy winter and I thank you. Chris
  11. Hi Lggva We too are due to join the Viking Atla in Nuremburg on 2 Dec and have been lurking on these boards for several days to see if there is any improvement. We have now come to the conclusion that we are going to have a good time whatever the outcome and will make every effort to keep smiling and keep drinking Gluhwein….how bad can it be no work cooking answering phones or laundry for 7 days? Safe journey and hope to see you on board
  12. I am still hanging on to your coat-tails as you glide gently south. I have been away for a while which was great planning on your part as whilst I was gone you were visiting the ports I will NOT be doing in March! The info on the shuttles in Mantra were valuable and I like the sound of The Martinica Restaurant... all duly noted. You really are doing a fabulous job and hope you are both recovered fully very soon. Chris
