  1. This looks very nice. Can someone recommend a hotel close by the pier. Thank you.
  2. Thank you. As I mentioned, it has been a long time since we sailed on HAL, but we have retained our 3 star status. We switched to Celebrity because we were getting a lot more for the money. Suite class on Celebrity does have there own dining room. Much nicer than the big main dining room. However, we missed HAL and wanted to come back. The private dining room is a bid draw for us and also the 21 day itinerary.
  3. It has been a lot time since we were on HAL. We booked a Neptune Suite for a transatlantic for April 2022. Is there a private dining room for Neptune Suite Guests on the Rotterdam? Does the Neptune Lounge serve alcoholic beverages? Thank you for your help.
  4. For the last 7 years, we have been cruising Celebrity and AMA river cruises. Much more casual. Yes, there are still some who prefer to dress formal, but, most people enjoy the slacks, nice top or sweater. My husband stopped bring jackets and ties years ago. I gave away all my dresses. Even if luggage is not limited to one suitcase, we still pack light. If I buy something new, I try to practice the rule of something has to go out. Usually, I save the “out item” for travel because I don’t have to pack if for the return trip. The most important thing is the item is still in good condition
  5. Thank you so much. We are looking forward to our return to Holland America.
  6. It has been seven years since we sailed on Holland America. We just booked the 21 Day Azores & Normandy & Norse Legends cruise on the Rotterdam for April, 17, 2022. (TransAtlantic). Please tell me that I no longer need to bring three cocktail dresses and my husband no longer needs to rent the onboard tuxedo. Does Holland America still have the formal nights of years ago? I know it is a long way off, but planning is half the fun. Thank you.
  7. Hi Miriam, I will definitely post this information, but I will have to do some research. We did the the Panama Canal from Miami to San Diego in 2016. We moved to Florida recently from CT and I and not totally settled. One memorable trip was a private tour in Costa Rica with two friends, my husband and myself. We walked in the rain forest followed by a lunch on the river. Afterwards we boarded a small boat and cruised down the river. We saw sloths, birds, and crocodiles . We stoped at a crocodile nest where our guide jumped out and brought a baby crocodile onboard. We saw a two cows
  8. If we cannot take private tours, or explore on our own we will not cruise. We have been on a number of cruises and have visited numerous countries as well as the islands. Yes, we enjoy the ship, however a large part of cruising is seeing the ports you are paying the cruise line to bring you do. We have a Panama Canal cruise booked for next fall and a Caribbean cruise for January 2022. While we have done both of these cruises before the excitement is in looking forward to taking some of the same private tours. We will just have to wait and see what happens. When cruising we
  9. Do some research on private tours available in each port. We used Joe Bananas private tours numerous times. They are fantastic. Decide what you want to see and how long you want to be there. Design your tour to fit your needs.
