  1. Dh and I would be in Australia right now. We weren't cruising for this trip, but flying to Sydney and then to Melbourne. We were going to spend a couple of weeks with our son (he lives in Sydney) for his birthday and for Mother's Day. Also, we were excited to get to meet the parents of our son's girlfriend. We have never been to Melbourne, so we were looking forward to spending some time there as well as time in the Sydney area. Who knows how long it will be before Australia is "open" to visitors again. They are very rigid with their restrictions. We're sad that we weren't able to spend this time with our son and his girlfriend, but we have had several FaceTime conversations with them. Thank goodness for technology! Can't wait to get "down under" sometime in the future.
  2. Our captain on the Oosterdam has been/is Michael Willems. 25 years experience.
  3. I agree. Someone just lost their wrap-around aft deck! We were still in bed, but awake. Our cabin is mid-ship, Oosterdam, and we didn't feel anything either! We're were blown away when we saw the damage! Glad no one was hurt.
  4. We are on the Oosterdam. We had to disembark for immigration purposes. I took these pictures while we were in line to get back onboard! Ouch!!!
  5. Dangit!! I wasn't watching him close enough! Grrrr!!
  6. Dangit!! I wasn't watching him close enough! Grrrr!!
  7. Beautiful day for sailaway! Thank you 65Gator and Rowsby for capturing some stills!!
  8. We got on board around 12:00, had a nice lunch in the MDR, unpacked and are ready to sail!! Time for muster drill and then away we go. Watch for us. We'll be on our balcony (7072) with a Seahawks flag!
  9. We were on an Alaskan cruise with our daughter and son-in-law last year. Dh and I were in a Neptune Suite, so we asked this very question. The answer was a very polite but definite no.
  10. Call me old fashioned, but those monster ships just do NOT appeal to me in the least!
  11. I think that was the name of our ship. I would have to look it up to be sure. It was a beautiful older ship. She had some pretty interesting history.
  12. Our very first cruise was on a Chandris ship (~1990). Hooked us for life!
