  1. Does anyone know if this applies to non American veterans? My sister is retired military. We’re not scheduled to sail from San Diego any time soon but thought I’d ask anyway.
  2. There wasn't a glass shower in 4166 on the Zuiderdam in 2019... The balcony is very nice but when it is not fully covered. When it rains, you have water dripping on you when standing at the railing. I don't think I'll book a cabin on Deck 4 again because of that, even if it has the longer balcony.
  3. I found out mine was gone from another poster here on CC! Fortunately, she got a new PCC and was able to advise me. I contacted him and now I have a new PCC. But it wasn't because anyone contacted me...
  4. Here are the Ts & Cs from the HAL website: Terms & Conditions Mariner Early Booking Bonus is based on Promo(s) DG*. Featured fares are per person based on double occupancy, cruise, or Cruisetours only. Taxes, Fees & Port Expenses are additional. Mariner Early Booking Bonus is subject to availability, available for new bookings only, and is not transferable or refundable. Mariner Early Booking Bonus may not be combinable with other discounts. Mariner Early Booking Bonus is applicable on select 2023 and future departures and excludes Grand Voyages and any voyage 5 days or less. Onboard spending money through this Offer is available within the first 90 days of product launch date in the following amounts: US$50 per person (US$100 per stateroom) for guests booked on a 6- to 9-day cruise; US$100 per person (US$200 per stateroom) for guests booked on Alaska Cruisetours; US$100 per person (US$200 per stateroom) for guests booked on a 10- to 20-day cruise; US$200 per person (US$400 per stateroom) for guests booked on a 21+ day cruise.

For information about our stateroom categories and suite descriptions, to view deck plans and for full terms and conditions applicable to your cruise, please refer to hollandamerica.com or the appropriate Holland America Line brochure. Solos only get half of the stateroom amount. Hardly seems fair when they're paying 200% of the fare...
  5. I would certainly hope so but I kind of doubt it. Hopefully, a solo who has booked a 2023 Alaska cruise will answer your question, one way or another.
  6. Based on the revised confirmation I received, it is per stateroom as Zelker found out.
  7. Right but the question was more is the OBC per person or per cabin. One document says per person. But Zelker says HAL says it is per stateroom.
  8. I know where I got the idea of $400 per person - it's on the link that LaffnVegas provided. It says up to $400 per person. Then later in this thread there was the breakdown by length of cruise but that doesn't indicate by cabin or by person (I assume it was mentioned in Seth's talk). I can't see it on the HAL website because I get the dreaded 404 error! Oh, well, it will be what it will be.
  9. Thanks for the correction. I'll still take an extra $400! But if it starts with Alaska 2023 then I probably won't get it for Canada/NE 2022! Oh, well, I still asked for it. The worst they could do is say no. At least, I should get it for Alaska 2023 that I booked about a month ago...
  10. Did someone say that it was retroactive? I booked a 24 day Canada/NE cruise early this year on the day it was announced. I'm just wondering... Could always use an extra $800 in OBC on our booking!
  11. Wonderful video! Thank you for sharing it!
  12. I hope so, for your sake. Just don't be too surprised if you see snow; it can happen at any time. It snowed in Jasper on Sep 1st, the day after we left! Regardless, you'll still have a great trip.
  13. Yes, for us too. I hope you have a wonderful time (and better weather). Which route are you doing? We did Jasper to Vancouver via Quesnel & Whistler. Unfortunately the rain and low cloud meant that we didn't see any mountains the day of departure! But the scenery (and the weather) got more and more spectacular as we got closer to the coast.
  14. For another suggestion, why not try the Rocky Mountaineer? We did it a few weeks ago and it was wonderful!
  15. Not quite the itineraries the OP wanted but here are two possibilities: https://www.adventurecanada.com https://www.croisieresctma.ca/en/ Just carefully check the accommodation; it seems a little basic to me! 2021 has been cancelled and there is no info for 2022 yet.
  16. Finally watched the episode - I saw you, too! I wish the episode had more info on the ship's amenities but thinking back on previous episodes they don’t really do that, do they? Oh well, I hope to be on her in Aug/22 so will experience those amenities in person for the third time.
  17. Are the cabin stewards still using that grey folder type thingy to put the chocolates and the next days program? When they did, the room service menu was tucked in the folded part. I missed it until I figured it out. Could that be why some got it and others didn’t? Just a guess on my part…
  18. Yes, I remember using those photo terminals on the NS. I can't remember if it was in 2019 but it was definitely in use in Feb/20.
  19. The NS episode was filmed in the Caribbean in Apr/19, according to a passenger who was on the ship at the time and appears in the episode (and posted in another thread). The Koningsdam episode was the one filmed in the Norwegian fjords.
  20. Well, given how many people in Vancouver and Victoria were against cruise ships, this could be a blessing for them. Or has this opinion changed since the cruise ban was announced and the economic impact has been realized? (Of course, my information is based on news reports so it could have been a vocal minority voicing their anti cruise opinions and sounding like a majority.)
  21. Thanks. Interesting story about HMC and the magic of TV. I was curious because I was on the NS in Feb/19 and Feb/20.
  22. Try Crave; I saw it listed when I tried searching on my TV.
  23. That's cool! I'll watch for your appearance. Just curious, when was the show filmed?
