  1. Hi John! Thank you so much for taking us along with you on your cruise. I really enjoy your posts at sea. We had perfect weather 2 weeks ago.
  2. Documents have been printed. Luggage tag is secured to handle. Bag is full. I am staying in a hotel near the Toronto airport tonight and the bag drag starts early tomorrow morning. Thanks again everyone!!
  3. I do NOT miss the HAL Cats. They were horrid. Out of tune, auto-tuned, wrong lyrics, and too loud.
  4. I've used HAL's transfer from the port to the airport or the airport to the port every time and it has always been excellent. They get the bags on and off quickly. I can't remember when they actually arrived or departed because all my trips to Rome were more than 5 years ago. We never missed our flights and always had more than enough time to take a leisurely tour through the shops in the airport.
  5. Thank you all very much. I haven't even packed my bag yet. All clothes are currently hanging in closet and waiting.
  6. You need to be onboard before the muster drill. Even though the ship may be leaving port at 5, there are things that need to be done onboard before that. I suggest trying to be on board before 3 p.m.
  7. I will do that John! Thank you for the information.
  8. I will be on the Noordam for the July 28 southbound cruise from Seward to Vancouver. Any idea who the Captain and CD will be?
  9. I pack one swimsuit per person in the carry on and one nice outfit and then whatever other clothes fit with socks and underthings in the carry on as well. Other types of stuff goes in the main suitcase. Shoes are in the main suitcase. All meds are in my purse. You have 4 suitcases and 4 carry ons, correct? If so, you have plenty of room. Think about stuff that can be drip dried over night in the bathroom, like swim suits. Dress in stuff that matches other stuff. One skirt or pair of dress pants is good for both gala nights, just wear different tops. It can be done.
  10. Hi everyone! Does the Oosterdam always dock at Pier 26? I will be onboard her next Saturday for the 7 day Tropical cruise. We have our documents and luggage tags now!!
