  1. We will be arriving in Amsterdam at 10:00 on a Saturday and taking the Train directly to the Port to board HAL Rotterdam. Is there any where around the Port/Train station where we can purchase wine to Carry Aboard? Even at the Airport possibly? We will try to buy some at Duty Free - but just in case, wondered if there might be an easy to access location. TIA LeslieW
  2. LOL Interesting they advertise it as a 'plus' then....
  3. I am looking into what is available. I see there is a Tourist bus (Bee Le Havre) which should give us an overview. Any suggestion? Thanks LeslieW
  4. In Le Havre Can you walk from Port to Town and just see the sights? Or is there some kind of shuttle or a taxi required. Thanks
  5. O Okay, Thank you. I was hoping we could arrive to our room and it would be 'ready to drink'. Perhaps I can try calling HAL and see if they can help,
  6. I have ordered a bottle of Champagne for delivery to our cabin for Sail Away on Embarkation Day. Will this be delivered Chilled or on ice? If not can it be requested? Thank you
  7. Happy Hour! 🍷 LOL my new best friend! Very good tips, thank you to one and all.
  8. Thank you both for the replies. We will each bring on a bottle at embarkation and then check the selection. If it makes sense we'll purchase more while in Port. $7 a beer seems reasonable. One other question, can you carry on water bottles or soft drinks? Thanks again.
  9. Good Day, We will be sailing on The Rotterdam in October. I was looking to pre-order some wine and noticed the online pricing seems very high - and when compared to alcohol it seem ridiculous. The cheapest wine is $45-$50 per bottle, while a Litre of Vodka or Rum is $40! Beer is $42 a 6 pack for American Beer, which we don't drink. My question is - are the prices for wine any better while onboard? And is there a better selection? Are they other beers available besides American flavours? I understand we are able to bring a bottle of wine on at Embarkation. Can we also purchase a bottle while in Ports? or will they confiscate? Thank you for any input.
  10. Does anyone know which port the Rotterdam will be docking at (October 12th, 2019)? Apparently there are several depending on ship size? Trying to figure out if we can walk off ship and tour the city on our own... Thank you.
  11. Looking for info from anyone who may have done a tour from Le Havre to Juno Beach? Thanks. LeslieW
  12. Ok Thank you. LOL - didn't think so, but I had to ask!
  13. Good Day Wondering about the Specialty Restaurants on the Rotterdam. Recommendations? Some are VERY Pricey so I am wondering if they are worth it? Thank you! LeslieW
  14. Thank you... I went online and took a look. You can select the date and location for delivery (Stateroom or Dining Room).
  15. Good Day... just wondering about the Carnival references here. Does it entitle you to anything? We have only sailed HAL once before and received a Mariner number from that, but have sailed Carnival several times. What, if any, benefit does this give us? Thanks for info. LeslieW
  16. I see you can pre order wine, etc from HAL Indulgences. Just wondering if I can have it delivered on a specific date on the cruise? My husband's birthday takes place on the 5th day of our cruise and I'd like to surprise him. Is preordering the best way? I am guessing I could also order once onboard, but it would be charged to our 'shared' account. I'd prefer he did not see the charge ....LOL or have to pay for it! 🙂
  17. Thank you! WE would love to get the corner units, but they are all full.
  18. Good Day, just wondering if any one has opinions on the AA Rear Facing Balcony cabins on the Rotterdam? We are looking at the 7th Floor Navigation Deck. Is there issues with people above looking down on the balcony? 6th Floor looks better but it is sold out... Any other thoughts or opinions? The other choice would be a B or AA on the side.... Thanks for any input. LeslieW
