  1. I think I'd try and find a nice hotel and spend the rest of the time there and enjoy Florida and fly home on my regular flight.
  2. Looking forward to your report! We did a B2B on this ship last Christmas and New Years and loved it. This year we're staying on the west coast and heading to Mexico on a Princess ship. Will miss HAL! 🙂
  3. It's interesting to note that it just appears to be the Holland cruises. I just checked a Princess cruise and it's still giving OBC. Since both companies are owned by Carnival, you would think it would be the same for both lines.
  4. Thanks, Btimmer! Will be following along on your blog.
  5. Thanks for all the helpful tips on Amsterdam! I do think it sounds better to stay in the central area so will look into doing that instead of near the airport.
  6. We're flying into Amsterdam next July and need a hotel for a couple of nights before boarding our ship - the Veendam. We don't know whether it's best to stay out by the airport or more in the central area. I've seen a few hotels near the airport that have shuttles which is nice, but I don't know if it will be harder to go and do and see things. One thing we'd like to do is go to Rotterdam one of the days... is that easy to do on the train? Would it be easier to be by the airport or in the central area to do that? Thanks in advance for any help you can give me! Rhonda
  7. I'm signed up on the Veendam - one of Holland America's ships for a 14 day cruise around the British Islands leaving July 11th. It leaves and returns to Amsterdam. It goes to to St. Peter Port in Guernsey, Holyhead, Wales, Liverpool, Dublin, Belfast, some of the Scottish islands, and Edinburgh. There are other stops, but I don't remember what they are. It appears to be a very nice trip.
  8. I know this is an older thread but it's very helpful. We were wondering if all of the tours in the various cities are walking tours or bus tours? My mom will be almost 83 next summer when we're interested in doing this and I'm not sure if either of us could do long walking tours each day. It looks like a great way to see more of Europe! Thanks so much!
  9. We love the Maasdam and other ships of that era, but would love to have a shower instead of the tub. My mom is 82 and those are so hard for her to get in and out of each day.
  10. I used the Costco tours for the first time last summer in Alaska and really enjoyed them. Loved the small sizes!
  11. Yes, it does... used it last December!
  12. Thank you, that's exactly what I was looking for!!
  13. Has anyone ever done one of the land tours in Europe before going on a Baltic cruise? We're looking at one that goes from Budapest to Vienna to Berlin, etc. and wondered how they work. Take a bus between cities. Any info you can give me would be wonderful!
