  1. We book directly with HAL most of the time.....and it quotes in $CAN as my account is linked from Canada........We like it as I can control what price, cabin, perks, FCC, we get or use......if we see a better price just phone and it is changed without having to phone this person or that person and explain what I want done......most of the time it just as cheap as using a full service internet company but sometimes you miss out on $50 or so cabin credit.... A lesson learned is.....if we buy a FCC on the ship and do it in $Can....then you have to do the booking in $Can to use the FC
  2. Well that is the latest dates here in BC....probably the same all over Canada.....originally it was a month but the nurse says up to 4 months now.....at least we have one shot.....who knows what is going to happen with this "new" Vaccine Passport.....and each country having its own....what a nightmare for security.....
  3. Just booked a balcony.....Koningsdam...end of October.....ready to go cruising again but we are in Canada.....and things getting worse here so who knows when the border or flights without a quarantine will go......probably a crap shoot.....but what the heck....can dream....lol..... And we have had our first Pfizer shot....second to come within 4 months they say......that does not leave much time to get things going for cruises and what rules HAL will have....what are some of you thinking???? Keep healthy....
  4. I really do not think any Alaska cruises out of Vancouver this year is going to happen.... https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/new-pandemic-travel-measures-soon-1.5895349 I bet this goes longer into May or June....
  5. Ours out of Vancouver on the Grand is cancelled also....it was for 5 days...Van back to Van...there were very few ones to choose from......other than going up to Alaska and back...14 days...do not know what I will do now......wait until Fall and do one down to La from Van perhaps......
  6. Just did a booking for the 5 day.....May 10.....Van to Van......holding it with my FCC....wish it was 7 days but by the time May rolls around with the lock downs.......we will be ready to go anywhere for a quick holiday....that is if the cruise actually does go.....who knows?????
  7. Thanks for the info.....early in the year they had the Sun Princess doing 7 day returns but they are all gone now....I think things will keep on changing so do not plan to rush into anything.....easier to get to Vancouver rather than Seattle for us.....
  8. Was looking at the schedule.....do not see any out of Vancouver returning after 7 days.....only 14 day ones up to Anchorage and back....they used to have some but not now......am I missing anything???
  9. Well.......we booked and Alaska 7 day out of Vancouver....early in May.....hope it goes but not holding our breath...lol....not much to hold it as used our $100 FCC's from a previous cruise.....have up to end of January to decide to pay rest.....by that time hope there will be some clarity.....hope hope
  10. My goodness....what an interesting thread I created.....shows lots of us still want to eat...haha......I do not care how the menu is presented I just want to get on with life.....sucks being stuck at home and no dinner parties with our friends....a cruise is just what the doctor ordered....lol......locked down in BC
  11. Too bad we cannot return to the days of the "Yum Yum Man" at the dining room entrance...he just turned into a table now...lol.....anyways just booked the May 2 from Vancouver for 7 days.....using our FCC so no out of pocket cost......that is a bonus...
  12. Wouldn't that be a blast....with all of us wearing masks.....lol.....just kidding...we all should be wearing masks now......almost mandatory here in BC now....and limited travel around the province and between provinces....things do not look great
  13. Thinking of booking a 7 day Alaska return out of Vancouver......"if and when the ports in Canada and Alaska" will allow thousands of passengers to get on and off....wow.....remember the "good old days"..... anyways was thinking about dinner reservations.......we usually do "open seating"......but will they have way more tables for two....distanced apart???.......we usually do not mind sitting at a table for 4 or 6 but in the current situation...."probably not" .with all the distance between tables....wow....how would they get all the people in on only two dinner sittings......have not seen mu
  14. Been looking at the May 1st...Van to Van ....Alaska on the Koningsdam....price not too bad for a balcony and using my FCC to hold it......wonder if I am just dreaming and not a reality??????.....how could these beautiful ports ever handle thousands of cruisers now each and every day of the season......it probably would be a disaster in the works.....easy for us to drive to Van and back home...at least we do not have to fly....that is a bonus anyways.....keep on dreaming as the winter starts to close in....snow in the hills today....
  15. We are looking at the Sun Princess to Alaska on May 25th.....the Sun is suppose to come to the West Coast from Australia and Asia at the beginning of May.......wonder if it will ever show up to do the cruise if Asia and Australia are not letting cruises go.....probably not even worry now but nice to think about a cruise to use the FCC up and easy to get to for us.....
