  1. They now offer gift cards. New Holland America Line Gift Cards Make It Easy To Give The Gift Of Cruising For Mother’s Day, Father’s Day And Graduations Digital and printed cards help gift-givers year-round; now available through select retailers Seattle, Wash., May 7, 2019 — Looking to make Mother’s Day, Father’s Day or graduation extra special? With the new Holland America Line Gift Cards, it’s now easy and convenient to give the gift of a cruise and other memorable experiences on board. In addition to new cruise bookings, gift cards can also be applied to an existing cruise booking. But the idea of an Amex card for any cruise line is wonderful. I have to drop hints to my co-workers for when I retire..
  2. Do we know what port HAL is going to now that Cuba is out? It would be nice to go to some different ports like Grenadines, Grenada, or St Barts.
  3. From the HAL Web site Cuba Travel Update – 6/5/2019 – 8:30 AM PDT Carnival Corporation confirmed today that due to changes in U.S. policy, the company will no longer be permitted to sail to Cuba effective immediately. Currently, Carnival Corporation is sailing to Cuba on Carnival Cruise Line and Holland America Line, and Seabourn has been scheduled to begin sailing in November to Cuba. Additional details for currently booked cruises will be provided directly to booked guests and their travel advisors by the end of today. We appreciate guest patience while we work to confirm new special pricing and replacement ports of call. Finalized details will be provided on or before June 15.
  4. One of the rumors I heard while on the P-dam was that Viking might sell one of their unbuilt ships to Holland America. Viking has contracted for more ships and might be wiling to let one go. Might be wishful thinking but they are the right size.
  5. I had a cabin beneath the Prominade deck and got woken up every morning to the thump, thump, thump of 2 folks jogging laps a 7 am so Please No
  6. If you want to spend some time in Rome you could take the train from the port to Rome about 7 euros check your luggage in luggage hold spend the day then that the express train to the Rome airport 15 euros.. You will need to be able to handle your own luggage. I did this in reverse last year spending the night in Rome not too hard and I speak no Italian.
  7. You will need a birth certificate along with your drivers licenses unless you have an enhanced drivers licenses. Va just started issuing these. https://help.cbp.gov/app/answers/detail/a_id/74/~/documents-needed-to-take-a-cruise
  8. Thank you every one I Will look into booking the princess when the Prinsdendam leaves the fleet.
  9. Thankyou for all the information. I will have to keep the shallow draft in mind if I do a trans Atlantic . I can deal with old and layer of paint but not so much old and non working plumbing. I will miss the Prisendam I hope HAL see the light and replaces her with something in that size
  10. I took my first cruise on the Prisendam this fall and loved it; I have decided that I am a small ship cruiser. Looking for other ships this size I found that Princess Pacific is close and has some nice itineraries. Has anyone sailed on this ship and can say what you like or not? I will most likely be traveling solo if this makes a difference.
  11. Thanks I thought I remember the receipt from the bar but maybe not. I will pack 1's
  12. I will most likely have excess non refundable OBC on my upcoming cruise. Does room service come with a receipt like the bar, so the tip can be added there or do I need a stack on 1$ bills?
  13. Thanks was not sure if the stock credit can be used for tips or not The goal is to spend it or give to a deserving person
  14. I will have some non refundable on board credit with having pre paid Gratuities I might not spend it all, Is there a way to up my tips with that money as oppose to a 'gift" to carnival Corp?
  15. What i have done in the past is go to Happy Hour buy one get one 2$ then carry both glasses with me to dinner
