  1. I am looking for a printable pdf cocktail checklist. I saw it somewhere on the internet but cannot find it again. Thanx
  2. This may sound real stupid but here goes. I have been on few cruises and I'm always amazed at how few electrical outlets in the cabin. I am afraid to take a power strip so we switch devices between outlets. My question is if I use an European outlet adapter can I plug in my USA items ? Thank you !
  3. OK, but can you choose 2 at Pinnacle and 2 at Canaletto or are you required to each one ?
  4. On our very first cruise we sailed on HAL Eurodam, Eastern Caribbean, very nice. My only regret is that we did not save our daily newsletters. I could not find a link on CC, could someone direct me how to find them on the most recent Caribbean/Panama Canal newsletters, thank you.
  5. I'm not sure if this subject has ever been discussed, if so, excuse me. Is acceptable or not to take pictures of your meals in Buffet/MDR/Specialty Restaurants ?
  6. It's been a very long time since I cruised on HAL, so, I apologize if this subject was already covered and answered, I can't find it. Where can I find a listing of alcoholic brands that are available at HAL bars ? Thank you !
  7. We are booked on X 11/2020, maybe. Anyway, I have seen postings about limited occupancy of future cruising. No one knows the number, I have seen anywhere between 50% and 75%, who knows. So I was also, like others, if this is true, how will they decide who cruises and who gets canceled. It would make total sense to only allow cabins with balconies to cruise. I will be looking forward to see what X does.
  8. I just wanted to afirm what everyone else has posted. Our last cruise we also stayed at Embassy Suites/ It was wonderful, excellent breakfast prior to going to port, staff was good, room was excellent. It's much better to arrange your own transportation to port rather than using hotel shuttle, it's a lot less hectic and crowded if you use Uber/Lyft, car arrived 5 min after calling and was at the port in 10 min.
  9. Odd ??? I see a few posts from "Europeans" saying that they think its an "American Thing" arriving at port a day or two before the cruise. Last year we met a family from the UK that arrived at FLL the day of the cruise only to discover the port had changed to Miami, it was widely announced of the port change in advance. Anyway, they missed the shuttle, had to arrange their own transportation, this was their first time in our country, they nearly missed the cruise. Bottom line is if they had arrived the day prior some of the mess could have been avoided. So, keep thinki
  10. Just to throw my two cents in, no matter if we cruise again or not, at some point we will. It's always, always, ALWAYS, a good habit to arrive at port at least a day prior. You never know what could happen if you arrive the day of.
  11. Any suggestions on a good/decent/clean/inexpensive hotel for pre and post cruise stay ?
  12. We usually book 10-12 months out, seems that the closer you get to cruise time the less choice you have and the more expensive it gets.
  13. We will be departing from Port of Tampa in November, 2020, maybe. We are looking at 2 hotels for our pre and post cruise stay. You read lots of reviews and don't know what to make of them. Anyway, the 2 hotels are the Hyatt Place Cruise Port/Airport Westshore and the Quality Inn & Suites Fairgrounds Ybor City. If you read the reviews and believe them they are both very good, I have stayed at Hyatts around the world and have been impressed, don't know about Quality Inn. Anyone have any experience with these hotels ?
  14. Additional Note: Please check out the ports and price check.
  15. Yes, I purchased my Navitimer on the Silhouette last year !
