  1. Oh my, I’m not sure how I accessed the forums earlier, cos I get the new input into my emails. I think I may need to go in online and go round the longer route. I got a new iPad recently, downloaded the app and assumed it was working! Thank you for telling me, just not sure why an app that doesn’t work is available.
  2. I am unable to access my Koningsdam Roll Call via the app. I get notifications of new posts on the thread, but when I try to go in via the Cruisecritic app I get a message asking me to contact forum administrators. I have tried opening other threads on Koningsdam roll call, same result. I tried Amsterdam threads too with the same error message. Hope someone can sort this out. Thank you
  3. Thank you Anne and Phil, much happier about our cabin now. Even with 2 of us I’m sure we will fit in! in the photo it looks like the desk space will easily accommodate our cameras etc. Just over 2 months till we sail.
  4. Thank you Combine, we have an odd number, 6039, but sounds like it will be similar to yours. As it’s our first Azamara cruise and port intensive I don’t think we will spend a lot of time in the cabin. so long as we have the surface of the dressing table for plonking down cameras etc it will be fine.
  5. Thanks for the speedy reply Phil, we were on Marco Polo earlier this year and booked the Azamara cruise as a reward for putting up with poor cabin amenities. However it sounds like this won’t be much better! Our cabin is pretty much in the middle of the row of lifeboats so hope our window is in the gap between boats.
  6. I have had my guarantee cabin assigned for my November cruise. I have a cabin with a lifeboat view. What are my chances of getting a better view? I did pay for a restricted view cabin so not complaining, just wondering if I might be bumped to a slightly better cabin.
  7. You got a brochure? Well, I have just had to scroll through on my iPad! Brochure would be so much easier. Never mind, I still managed to pre book a boat trip in Narsasqauq. I see several Hikes available but I think we can hike on our own without a guide. Just looking round the towns will be interesting for us. see you in 10 weeks, Libby

  9. Excursions are available to book now on your CMV log in page. i have pre booked about trip in Narsarsuaq for £100 each. Don’t fancy any of the others. Libby
  10. Hi again Norm, over on the roll roll call I have posted the trip details and had interest from several people. I’m trying to put a trip together now. I’m not trying to force your hand, but if you want me to add you to the group please let me know. thanks, Libby
  11. I agree Norm, this site is no longer as easy to use as it once was. My app doesn’t work and logging in and out is a nuisance. moaning over! see you in a few months, Libby
  12. Okey dokey Coco, I'm just hanging on now till our excursions are advertised. I have posted on the roll call, but it is a bit dead right now. Let’s hope the posting of excursions resurrects it! cheers, Libby
  13. No problem Norm, I’m not booking anything till I get ship prices for comparison. Also have to get 6 people to go to split costs effectively and our roll call isn’t exactly busy! Let’s just wait and see, Libby
  14. Not sure if anyone is interested in booking trips yet, but I have started looking and found this boat trip from Ilulissat.... 3.500 DKK Ilulissat is Greenlandic for "icebergs". And the icebergs is the experience of many tours. The beautiful ice is also why the Ilulissat Icefjord is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This cruise takes you to one of the most beautiful places in the area; the mouth of the icefiord, where a large submercial moraine beaches the large icebergs in rows - before they embark on their journey out into the Atlantic. The glacier producing icebergs is called Sermeq Kujalleq. It is located approx. 70 km inside the ice fjord, where all sailing is impossible. It is the most productive glacier in the Northern Hemisphere and the world's fastest ice stream with 40 meters per day. Ice production is 46 cubic kilometres per year (equivalent to U.S. annual water consumption). The largest icebergs are 1.5 cubic kilometres. There is only one thing to say - this natural phenomenon and these icebergs has to be seen. Duration: 2 hours Difficulty: Easy Period: 1 May - 31 October The price includes: Two hours of sailing by the icebergs (Start and end in Ilulissat) with guidance along the way. The price is for 6 passengers, about £75 each I think. I did a conversion, but can’t remember the exact pricing. i haven’t checked availability, just wanted to see if anyone would be interested in joining us. Also I have no idea how this price compares to the cost for a ship tour. have a good weekend, Libby
  15. Hi Norm, hopefully we will be able to meet on board, as you say, she is a small ship. I have had a look on the CMV website, although the tours aren’t available for booking they do have descriptions of possible tours at each stop. In Shetland I think it will be easy to use the local buses to get around. CM V has a tour to the town of Scalloway, but it is a 25 minute ride by local bus so an easy do on your own. i was given a tip for a Greenland tour company recently so I am checking that out today and I will let you know if it is any good. cheers, Libby
