    Looking forward to once again reading of your world cruise.

    Good to see that not everyone has had bad experiences on this ship/itinerary as we have booked the Cuba cruise on this ship for Dec 2019.

    Man jumps off cruise ship for kicks

    It would be a good idea for other cruise lines taking note of this person so they can flag future reservation attempts on their ships.

    Violence in Paris

    We too will be in Paris early May. I think it is too far out to contemplate changing plans as much can occur over the next few months.
  5. Following your live reports from rainy central CA. Thank you for taking the time to share your experiences aboard the newest HAL ship. Hope you have a wonderful cruise.
  6. Hoping to check out Christmas decorations for our Cuba cruise Dec 11-18 next year. We have never sailed in December but have been on the ship for Thanksgiving one year.
  7. Well we booked a new cruise during the cyber sale. Please add March 15,2020 19 day South Pacific crossing and Hawaii on the Maasdam to your list.

    Cyber Monday Sale - What will it be?

    I phoned our big box travel agency and they were able to call Holland America and get the cyber promotion added to our existing Dec11-18 2019 Cuba cruise on the Veendam, very happy.

  10. I made an error and this cruise is in 2019 not this year. Sorry for causing you more work.

    No Mariner Points from Onboard Spending

    We returned Oct 3 and after contacting the Mariner Society, we received the same email reply. It also said no need to further email.
  12. Enjoying your posts. Sounds like a great trip. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  13. I will look again but I had noticed not that many verandas were still available. I will continue to read of others experience with the new EXC program. At this point would only book the 19 day segment. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  14. While onboard the Nieuw Amsterdam last week we received a flyer listing sailings on the Maasdam. Just looked at the 19 dat South Pacific and Hawaii cruise and was surprised to find most cabins taken. Is this unusual and could it mean a large group may have grabbed rooms?
