  1. I always wear something to cover my arms and shoulders when I am on the ship. I think the ships are kept cooler to keep germs away. Even on the Lido deck around the pool I can get chilled. I have a lightweight shawl for evenings and wear 3/4 length sleeves or a light sweater over a blouse during the day. But that is just me. I seem to always run on the cold side Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  2. We have missed HMC twice and never got any port fees refunded Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  3. I can’t remember what time our flight left, but it took us a good 3 hours from the time we entered the airport until we got to our gate. All the lines were never ending. We both got pulled out for extra screening(had our camera in our carry on and they didn’t like that). At the gate, my husband was pulled aside again and they gave him and his carry on a severe once over, wiping everything, including the inserts of his shoes, with a drug tracking wipe or whatever those wipes look for...If it was me, I would be nervous about cutting it that close. If you are taking the ship’s shuttle, it doesn’t leave until the bus is full. There are just too many variables that could delay you getting to the airport and on the plane in time Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  4. We had binoculars in our SS in January on the Veendam. They were not good. Very, very old and not kept up. Don’t think they had ever been cleaned. Will bring our own for our upcoming cruise through the Panama Canal Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  5. We will be on the Rotterdam for the Panama Canal next January and will become 4 star mariners during the cruise. We have never been met with a glass of bubbly when we boarded...and we have done vista suites as well as Neptunes. When exactly did they offer you this glass of bubbly????

  6. This last January we stayed at Pier 66. The towers were not open, as stated above. Room was nice, a bit overpriced. What was nice was that there was wonderful restaurants within the resort area. We took Lyft from the airport and to the cruiser port. Cheaper than a taxi. Even at the high rate(we booked when it got pretty cheap), I would book again. They had a concierge that would book you Everglades tours and shuttles to the cruise port. Very, very nice staff Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. Last time it wasn’t added to my offers, I called and they said there was nothing they could do. Another time, it was on my card, but not my husband’s card. Again, they said there was nothing they could do
  8. We had fixed seating on the upper level on the Veendam in January. I would say that the mint/ginger/dried fruit station was manned 50% of the time Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  9. We were on the Veendam in January and the mints, ginger and dates were all out by the dining room exit. Sometimes there was someone there to serve you, most times it was help yourself Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  10. We just used it on each of our cards. Every little bit helps. Last cruise, it was offered twice before final payment and we were able to use it each time Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  11. We are also sailing on a cruise to Cuba in January. I assume the visa is good for anywhere in Cuba, no matter how many stops the ship makes
  12. I enjoy reading your posts, however, this script has me scrolling past them. I cannot read them without eye strain. Sorry
  13. I totally agree. Just discussed this with DH and we both agreed that there is really no reason to stay loyal to HAL if the perks that you work hard to get by cruising can be purchased. Plus some people will walk around flashing their “orange” cards with an air of superiority. Sad to see HAL bringing obvious classes to the cruiseline. We sail a 21 day in January, but will most likely look around for other lines after that. Very, very sad. Don’t know who keeps making these horrible decisions. Hope Seattle reads these threads and reconsiders doing this fleet wide
  14. Not sure I understand. Are you saying you NEVER wear anything but shorts? I find that difficult to believe unless you live in a tropical climate and never go anywhere where you dress up even slightly. I would think you have some clothes in your closet that you could wear besides shorts
  15. Thanks so much....learning my way around this site. Don’t like it as much as Tapatalk, but it will do vs not being up to date on news that is relevant to booking, sailing, etc
